On Friday 11th November, the children in classes 5 to 11 were invited to a school disco after school.
All the children (and staff!) had a wonderful time dancing the ‘afternoon’ away!
The pupils in the Prep Department also enjoyed a tuck shop, full of goodies they could buy!
All money raised from the sale of the disco tickets and the tuck shop was donated to our school charity this year, CLIMB.
On Friday 18th November, the pupils in class 10 spent the day at Hampton Court Palace. They were transported back to a time when Henry VIII ruled the land and through an interactive workshop, were given the opportunity to assess whether he was as terrible as the history books say. Through drama and storytelling, the children immersed themselves in Tudor life and explored what it was like to have been alive during the reign of arguably the most fascinating monarch of the Tudor age. The children rounded off the day with a tour of the kitchens, apartments, chapel and gardens to ensure an unforgettable learning experience.

Class 9 have been studying the book “How To Train Your Dragon” as part of their English topic.
They have been looking at the lives of a Viking and comparing similarities and differences with themselves.
Yesterday, they had an exciting opportunity yesterday to receive a skype call from a Virtual Viking called Leoba. She talked about lots of different topics such as how they lived, what jobs they did and why they travelled.
The children were shocked to learn that many were married and had children by the age of 14! They also couldn’t believe that you dug holes to go to the toilet and used moss as toilet paper!
The children really enjoyed the experience and Leoba loved teaching the children about her life as a Viking!
In October, the pupils in classes 9 – 11 (Years 4 – 6) have the opportunity to join us for our PGL residential trip. In previous years, we have visited historic Boreatton Park in Shropshire, however in 2017 we are heading to Winmarleigh Hall, near Preston. The children take part in activities ranging from zipwire to horse riding. Providing first time experiences for many of the children, this trip allows them to develop self–confidence and independence in a safe, yet challenging environment.
Due to the high numbers of pupils in classes 6 and 7 who wish to attend Monday night Jack Collison Football Training, the schedule has changed. The new times are as followed:
Class 6 3.30 – 4.10pm
Class 7 4.15 – 4.55pm
Prep 5.05 – 5.45pm
During our trip to the Bedford School on Wednesday 21st September, the boys had an opportunity to sample a French style breakfast. They conversed in French with the staff serving them and developed their French vocabulary. Following this welcome, the boys took on the challenge of designing colourful Carnival masks inspired by the summer Olympic Games in Rio and they took part in a Rugby lesson, looking at passing the ball and supporting the ball carrier.
The boys had a wonderful morning and their behaviour and engagement were a credit to Broughton Manor.
Just a brief email to say it was a pleasure having your boys visit yesterday and I hope they all had a fun morning.
As always, they were all extremely polite and well behaved and I think they all left at the end of the day with a smile on their faces.
I hope they had a successful tournament during the afternoon; they were all very much looking forward to it when they left us.

On Wednesday 21st September our Class 10 girls visited Bedford Girls School for the morning. We were hosted by their teaching staff and shared break time cakes with their Year 5 pupils. The girls were treated to a Chemistry workshop where they made scented bath bombs, and created PH paintings. They then went out onto the sports field and learnt how to play lacrosse and finally went on the trampoline, learning how to bounce and stop, and how to do various jumps. We had a very enjoyable morning.
