Children in Need 2018

DSC03808

On Friday 16th November, the children took part in an array of fundraising activities including wearing spotty socks to school, guessing the name of the Teddy Bear and guessing members of staff from childhood photographs.  The children in the Pre-Prep department took part in a colouring competition and the Prep department designed bookmarks.

The day concluded with a successful Christmas Fair which included stalls selling gifts and cards, the sweet jar tombola (the favourite), a book stall and a cake stall (which emptied within an hour of opening!).

Thank you, as always, to the never ending support of our parents and children and a big thank you to all the staff who played a part.

Maths Olympiad 2018

On Thursday 15th November 2018, Mr Smith took a team of young mathematicians to the first annual Maths Olympiad at The Webber Independent School.  The team consisted of three Class 10 pupils; Bana Shadid, Shyam Billakota and Jacob Pugh, and three Class 11 pupils; Eisa Osman, Austin Bhadri and Kayla Wahome.

Throughout the day the pupils worked through team puzzles and challenges but also took part in individual rounds of problem solving questions.  It was very mentally taxing and required full concentration and effort.

The Broughton Manor team presented themselves well and managed to win both the Class 11 three pupil challenge and the overall team event.

It was an amazing day of success for Broughton Manor and all of the pupils involved have every right to feel very proud of their efforts.  Well done Broughton!

During the morning of Friday 9th November, all the children, from our 3 year olds to our 11 year olds, and the staff paid their respects to those who had lost their lives in conflict.  All the children were given a poppy and wrote their thanks, in their own words around the outside. At the end of our minute silence, the children and the staff handed their poppies to Mrs Wise who put them together to make this beautiful display.

In addition, the children in classes 3 and 4 made red handprint poppies which are displayed in the Pre-Prep corridor.

On 27th September, the children in class 4 went on a trip to Woburn Safari Park, in support of their current topic, Jungle.

The children were very excited as they boarded the coach, which then provided them with a great view of the animals as we drove through the park.  A guide introduced the children to all the different animals around the park, and they were particularly excited to see the new one day old baby giraffe! After the tour of the park the children had a picnic lunch followed by visits to the penguins, sea lions, tropical birds, wallabies and the elephant show. All the children (and the staff) had a wonderful time.
