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.
