Today, the whole school joined together to raise money for Sports Relief. The children got super active; they ran the sponsored Sports Relief Mile, participated in a ‘Zumbathon’ with Mrs Marini and rotated around fun, sporting activities set up by our Year 6 children, while our nursery children took part in a ‘Dance-athon’. The day ended with a Staff v Seniors game of Dodgeball with all the children on hand to cheer them on. The children collectively ran 116 miles, equivalent to the distance between Milton Keynes and Sheffield!! Today was such a fun day and staff and children alike, will most certainly sleep well tonight!
At Broughton Manor, we raised a fantastic £1,635.93. A huge thank you to our whole school community for their continued support.
As we prepare for our journey home from this year’s Ski Trip we can’t help but reflect on what a wonderful week we have had. The resort has been fantastic, the weather beautiful and the snow plentiful, but most of all, the children have been amazing. Everyday they have impressed us with their progress and we are extremely proud of how they have represented Broughton Manor this week!
World Book Day at Broughton Manor is our Headmistress’s favourite day of the year. Today everyone came to school, full of excitement, dressed as their favourite character from a book. During the day they took part in activities such as jumping through a ring of ‘fire’ from the circus in the Singing Mermaid to making magic potions in the Science Lab, they made wands using twigs and potato peelers and Chicken Licken Easter cards and took part in drama activities based around The Twits. They used their creative talents in the Mary Poppins kite making and dance workshops and threw the javelin and shot put in Miss Trunchbull’s PE lesson. Finally, the Upper Prep Corridor was transformed into an obstacle course of clothing as the ‘aliens’ were given the task of finding the underpants! Throughout the day, our School Council have been filming and interviewing their teachers and we concluded this wonderful day with their News Report at our sharing assembly.
A wonderful day skiing, in perfect conditions, followed by a lot of fun and laughter on “Speed Mountain”! This is such a fantastic opportunity for the children and they are achieving so much, at all levels.
Our Broughton Manor skiers had another great day on the slopes. The weather was perfect and the 20cm of fresh snow made the conditions excellent. Today we are particularly proud of our beginners; it was their first time on the chair lift and first time to the top of the mountain! Another action packed day.
On day 2 of the BMPS Ski Trip, everyone took advantage of the excellent conditions and enjoyed the fresh powder. It was a little windy at the top of the mountain but everyone did amazingly well. Their day on the slopes concluded with a well deserved milkshake and tonight they are looking forward to fun in the local swimming pool!
After an early start and a very smooth journey, the Broughton Manor ski trip party have reached their French ski resort.
When you are 3 and 4 years old, there doesn’t have to be much snow in Broughton to cause great excitement!
The lawn in front of the Manor House is a wonderful space for our nursery children to play in the snow.
Our first early morning Prep Running Club took place Wednesday morning. The children and accompanying parents were up early and at school for 7.30am.
As a group of 29 runners (including 6 parents and 3 teachers) they ran a total of 76km. Each week, we will be tracking their progress on our Running Club vs ‘The World’ display. The children’s enthusiasm was infectious and they are already looking forward to next week.
