Rugby Festival

There is nothing better than a school event where the community comes together!

On Friday 11th October, we hosted the first annual U8 Mixed Tag Rugby Festival. Three local primary schools; Middleton Primary, Monkston Primary and Brooklands Farm Primary, joined us for an afternoon of rugby.

This was the perfect opportunity for the children to develop their knowledge and game play at a fun and relaxed event, in which all the schools had the opportunity to play one another, in a round robin format. 

The Festival concluded with a presentation of the award for the Player of the Festival; in recognition of fantastic effort and team spirit.

The event was greatly supported by families from all four schools. A huge thank you to the children and staff at Middleton Primary, Monkston Primary and Brooklands Farm Primary and to our Head of Boys’ Games, Mr Richardson.

Class 11 trip to Sky Studios

On Thursday 10th October, it was the turn of our Year 6 children to spend the day at the Sky Studios in London.

They received a tour of the studios and were most impressed by Sky Sports!

The children made their own Sky News reports about how important the recycling of plastic is. Each child took on a different role from Editor to Camera Operator, Eye Witness, Producer and News Reader. Even the teachers had a go at presenting!

All in all they had a fantastic day and our thanks again must go to Sky Academy Studios for this great opportunity we were able to offer to the children at BMPS.

Class 8 trip to Pizza Express

As part of their Science topic, plants, the children in class 8 (Year 3) have been learning about where food comes from, which group different food belong to and the important of food hygiene in the kitchen.This morning the children visited Pizza Express, where they learnt about the origin of pizza. They also learnt that to honour the Queen consort of Italy, Margherita of Savoy, the Neapolitan pizzamaker Raffaele Esposito created the “Pizza Margherita”, a pizza garnished with tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil, to represent the national colours of Italy as on the Flag of Italy. This was quickly followed by pizza making! The children had fun creating their own masterpieces, which they will enjoy at lunch time!

Harvest Festival 2019

On Monday 7th October, the children, parents and staff at Broughton Manor took part in a wonderful Harvest Festival assembly. Reverend Matt Trendall spoke to the children and parents about the ways we can be thankful, specifically by taking great care of our planet and recycling plastic. The children sang some beautiful harvest songs; from Conkers to Allotments, Controlling our Food Waste, to This Special Planet – we clearly have a lot to be thankful for. A big thank you must go to our families for the astonishing amount of food they donated. It took three people carriers, the whole Student Council and Uncle Alan to deliver it to the MK Food Bank later today. Well done to everyone for a brilliant effort!

International Day 2019

On Friday 4th October, the whole school and Nursery were off around the world for our amazing International Day. We celebrated many countries and nationalities in a whole variety of activities including dance, cookery, music, arts and crafts workshops. 

Our Class 11 (Year 6) children led their groups around the various activities, which included a super international market place, full of delicious foods and spectacular artefacts from around the world. These were provided by our kind and generous parents who really went the extra mile to provide first hand learning for all our lucky children. What an amazing day!  A huge thank you to all of the parents and staff of Broughton Manor, who once again worked together to provide our children with a world class day of learning. A particular thank you must go to our Deputy Head, Rachel Smith, whose expert organisational skills once again ensured the smooth running of the day.

MacMillan Coffee Morning

On Friday 27th September, we hosted our annual Macmillan Coffee Morning to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support. Our families kindly donated a wonderful selection of tantalizing cakes which were displayed beautifully in the school reception area, by Mrs Ing and Mrs Norman. What a greeting at the front of our school today! One of our children said, ‘We should do this every morning!’. 

Well done Mrs Ing and a big thank you to all our Broughton Manor families for their generous support.

So far we have raised a fantastic £458.70 .. yet another successful charity event in aid of an extremely worthy cause!

Class 7 trip to The Higgins Museum

On Wednesday 25th September, the children in Year 2 enjoyed a trip to The Higgins Museum in Bedford. They took part in various toy themed workshops, including playing with replica Victoria Toys and making their own paper toys.  Everyone had a lot of fun and some, enjoyed a nap on the coach back to school!

Classes 10 & 11 Boys’ Trip to Franklin Gardens

On Thursday 26th September, the boys in classes 10 and 11 visited Franklin Gardens, the home of the Northampton Saints. The day began with a training session with a Northampton Saints coach, which took place on the training pitches next to the Northampton Saints first team squad, who were preparing for their upcoming fixture against the Wasps this weekend.

After the session, some of the children were fortunate to meet the Saints players, including the former England Captain Dylan Hartley and England international Teimana Harrison. 

While eating lunch, we watched the first half of England’s second world cup match against USA. In the afternoon, we were treated to a tour of the stadium and the gentleman in charge of the Northampton Saints kit was at hand to explain the schedule of the players during a normal match week.

We ended the day with a visit to the community activity zone, where the children took part in 30 second passing and kicking challenges and the ‘crash wall’ where the pupils (and teachers) had to run towards and crash through a purpose build foam wall. 

All in all, the day was extremely informative and a lot of fun. Who knows, one day we may well be back at Franklin Gardens to watch a former BMPS pupil play!

Starting Big School

Mrs Mehta, from our Parents’ Association, the Friends of Broughton, kindly hosted our ‘Starting Big School’ event for the parents and children in class 5 (Reception). This was a lovely opportunity for parents to meet other families and to capture this important milestone.

Class 10 trip to Sky Studios

On Thursday 19th September 2019, our Year 5 pupils spent the day at the Sky Studios in London. The children were given the opportunity to make their own Sky News report based around the future of technology. They were split into 4 different groups; each group contributed their own segment to the news report and every child was given a role. The children wrote their own scripts and made decisions about the scenery and location for their reports. They even dressed up and had a go behind the news desk. A fun filled; educational day was had by all.
