On Wednesday 20th June 13 of our pupils in Year 2 took part in their first football fixture at Monkston Primary School. We started positively with plenty of possession and created the first clear cut chances of the game. Monkston then created 2 chances on the counter attack and scored both to leave us 2-0 down at half-time. The team talk was clear; we needed to keep going and enjoy ourselves. We pressed forward with more conviction and determination and we went on to score 5 unanswered goals. A hat trick for Alfie Rowland, 1 goal from Ivan Nyeama and a goal from a corner by Max Dhillon. Congratulations to all the children that took part!

On Wednesday 13th June, class 6 spent the day at Woburn Safari Park. The children enjoyed the road safari, in particular when the monkeys wouldn’t get off the roof of the coach and the giraffes refused to move off the road! They had lunch surrounded by excited chickens and spent the afternoon exploring the different animal enclosures. The highlight of the trip was stroking an African elephant and watching the naughty monkeys being fed. The children all learnt a lot and that had a brilliant day. Read more »
On Tuesday 12th June, the pupils in classes 8 & 9 spent the day at Legoland in Windsor. The children had a fantastic day; they went on the rides which included gaining their LEGO driving licence, laser shooting in the Kingdom of the Pharaohs and the Scarab Bouncer. They watched the Pirate Stunt Show, which required a balance between eating lunch and cheering on the good pirates in order for them to defeat the bad pirates! This truly was a brilliant day, enjoyed by everyone without exception!

Congratulations to our U11 Boys who won the ISFA Regional Championship at King’s Ely on Saturday 17th March 2018.
Broughton Manor booked their place at St George’s Park for the first time after claiming the U11 7v7 east region title at the rearranged event held at Kings Ely.
Broughton Manor were the stand out team in group B going through the group stages unbeaten with 3 wins and a draw to top the group.
The quarter finals produced some incredibly tight matches with three of the four being decided by penalties with Kings Ely, Taverham Hall and Broughton Manor being victorious in the shoot-outs.
Penalties were once again needed in the second semi-final and it was Broughton Manor who held their nerve and defeated Taverham Hall in the shoot-out.
The final was an excellent game between the two group winners and it was decided by a second half goal as Broughton Manor took the chance when it came and then defended excellently to see the game out and claim a
1-0 victory and be crowned ISFA East Region U11 champions and claim the final spot in the National Finals day at
