Senior Girls day of Cirque du Soleil

Northampton High

On Tuesday 26th September, our Class 10 and Class 11 girls were treated to a day of Cirque du Soleil inspired creativity at Northampton High School. In the morning, the girls were invited to design a mask based upon the vibrant colours and dramatic patterns of the popular Cirque du Soleil shows. Some ordained their masks with brightly coloured feathers and some chose traditional ordainments and shapes, highlighting the eyes or mouth of their characters.

In the afternoon, the girls took part in a brief performance of the opening song from the Cirque du Soleil show entitled “La Nouba”. Some developed an interpretative dance, some performed gymnastics manoeuvres and others created the hypnotic music for the show.

It was a wonderful day of exploration and creativity which the girls enjoyed thoroughly.

Class 10 boys visited Bedford Boys School

Unknown

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.

Monday 12th June – BMPS vs MKPS

IMG_1686

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!

Class 6 trip to Buckingham Garden Centre

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.

IMG_0591

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 »
