On Wednesday 20th September, our class 10 boys visited Bedford Boys School. They were greeted with breakfast, which had a distinctive French flair. Croissants and Pain au Chocolat were enjoyed by all, with many of the boys using French expressions with gusto. (Good manners and correct terminology were rewarded readily with offers of seconds.)
After that, the boys took part in a sculpting lesson. They each designed a sea shell relief using clay and their imaginations. When they were complete, each of the sculptures was original and very reminiscent of prehistoric fossils found at the seaside.
Another snack followed and an opportunity to see the school at break time. Some of Broughton Manor’s most recent pupils visited us and explained what it was like to be a student there.
The final activity for the day was a rugby session with some of the boys from Milton Keynes Preparatory School. The students developed their decision making and passing throughout the session, culminating in some small sided rugby competitions at the end.
The boys were impeccably behaved throughout and thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to see Bedford Boys School.
On Wednesday 20th September, our class 10 (Year 5) girls were invited to an activity morning at Bedford Girls’ School. The girls enjoyed activities including Science and Augmented Reality, Lacrosse and Trampolining.
BMPS 262 – 286 MKPS
A score-fest was served up during junior games this past Monday afternoon. Many of the BMPS boys finding the boundary whilst posting a decent score. However, they were guilty of conceding 7 wickets.
MKPS replied in similar style, after the first two pairs of Broughton bowlers kept scoring to a minimum. MKPS then stepped up the pace finding the boundary with some well placed shots.
Well done to Ondrej, Tristan, and Joshua for playing in their first cricket fixture this season!
On Wednesday 24th May, the children in class 6 visited to Buckingham Garden Centre in support of their current topic,
Plants and Growth. They used their five 5 senses to touch, smell, hear, taste and look at different types of plants. The
‘Lamb’s Ear’ was very soft and the ‘Scaredy Cat’ was very smelly! They looked at the aquatic fish and found Dory, before moving outside to feed the Koi Carp.
The children also learnt about the life cycle of a chicken and how they differ to mammals. Finally, we visited their allotment where they planted some beans. They looked at the bees wax and learnt about propagation and we ate our picnic lunch in the meadow and enjoyed the peace and quiet.
During the afternoon of Wednesday 24th May, the pupils in class 11 made the most of the good weather with an afternoon of Team Building and Problem Solving, within the school grounds.
On Tuesday 23rd May, the pupils in classes 8 and 9 spent the day at Woburn Safari Park. We began the day with the road safari; fortunately, we had lovely weather and all the animals were out basking in the sun. Tigers and bears were within inches of our coach and some very cheeky monkeys were playing in the trees, much to the fascination of the children. Later in the day, we visited the Sea-Lion Cove, where Monica the Sea-Lion performed some incredible tricks for us. The children also attended a talk at Desert Springs, where they learnt about Meerkats, Porcupines and Mongoose. The remainder of the day was spent looking at the other wonderful animals Woburn has to offer including the Penguins, Wallabies and Lemurs. A great day was had by all! Read more »
On Tuesday 23rd May, two members from the Two Villages Archive Trust, visited the children in Class 11 (Year 6) to take about how Broughton and Milton Keynes Village have changed since Medieval times. As part of their local history topic, the children gained an insight into how the land, roads and buildings have developed through the ages. Through paintings, photos, maps and artefacts, the children accessed a wealth of information to build a chronology of significant developments in the local area. The session culminated in a guided walk and a visit to the church of St Lawrence in Broughton.
On Thursday 18th May, the pupils in classes 10 and 11 visited All England Lawn Tennis Club at Wimbledon. During the day, they had a behind the scenes tour of the grounds and visited the fascinating museum and shop. Read more »

They had the opportunity to use old fashioned telephones and learnt about the history of communication.
They also learnt about musical instruments from the Victorian Era and how Victorian Shopkeepers communicated what they sold in their shops.
The children had a wonderful day and learnt a great deal from our visit. Read more »

On Thursday 6th and Friday 7th April, the pupils in class 8 went on a residential visit to Grafham Water Activity Centre in Cambridgeshire. They had great fun turning their hands to crate stacking, survival skills, archery and completing the ‘Grafham Challenge’ (a blindfold obstacle course).
Any spare energy was used up playing football and searching for chocolate eggs in our Easter Egg Hunt.
The children all returned home happy but tired! Read more »
