Sports for Schools Alistair Patrick-Heselton (Team GB Athlete Visit)

sports-for-schools-8

On Friday 4th November, Broughton Manor welcomed GB Paralympic Footballer Alistair Patrick-Heselton to the school. Alistair has played in the Paralympic World Championships and the Paralympic World Cup, as well as scoring against Argentina in the 2012 London Paralympics. It was a great privilege to have him at our school.

Alistair led a sponsored fitness circuit with all pupils, and followed this up with a talk and question and answer session. The aim of this event was to inspire the children to take up sport generally, but just as importantly to encourage us all to discover and then pursue our passion in life. Hearing about the hardships he faced and his perseverance and dedication in the face of adversity was very inspiring.

School Disco

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.

Class 10 visited Hampton Court Palace

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 – Visit from a Virtual Viking

img_0448

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!

PGL Residential Trip

unknown

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.

Class 10 Boys Activity Morning at Bedford School

bedford-boys

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.

Feedback following Year 5 boys’ visit to Bedford School

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.
