Theatre Visit

2

On Saturday 24th March 2018, children from Broughton Manor and their parents attended the matinee performance of ‘The Pirates of Penzance’ at the Royal Theatre in Northampton, starring our Deputy Head, Mrs Rachel Smith. It was a great afternoon, and everyone enjoyed themselves enormously. For some of our younger children, it was their first taste of a classical musical production which was set in a nursery playroom; it was fun, modern and highly entertaining. Many thanks to all
the parents for bringing their children along for this memorable experience! Read more »

Class 6 Trip to Milton Keynes Museum

Victorian Musical Instruments

On Thursday 15th March, the children in class 6 (Year 1) visited Milton Keynes Museum yesterday, in support of their current class topic, Sound and Communication..

The children spent the morning calling each other on old fashioned telephones, pretending to be Victorian school children, listening to old fashioned musical instruments and learning

about the history of communication.

They had many interesting questions to ask the volunteer staff at the museum and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the hands on activities.

After a picnic lunch, the children looked around the old shops and discovered how people got around before the car was invented.
