Dinosaur Enrichment Day – classes 7 – 11

Our Enrichment Day this term was all about Dinosaurs!

The science group went to the farm to look for fossils and used their internet research skill to identify them. The children studied different tail prints and matched them to the evidence, different food samples extracted from the scene and used chemistry to see if they could find a match and liquid samples using chromatography.

The science and art activities included creating Dinosaur Skeleton Pasta Pictures; they discussed their features and in particular their bones, they looked at different types of dinosaur and other animals that lives alongside the dinosaurs, creating pictures from different materials.

Perhaps the highlight of the day was a visit from Tyriol the Tyrannosaurus in our assembly! Read more »

The Farm Comes to Broughton Manor

On Tuesday 26th September Ark Farm, a mobile farm, came to visit the children in class 6 in support of their current topic, Food and Farming.

The animals arrived early and the children were very excited to see a large pen in the middle of the playground, full of animals. Ark Farm brought with them a cow, two farm dogs, three ducks, two geese, two hens, a rooster, a piglet, two sheep and two goats.

The lady in charge, Tam, talked to the children about each animal and their different characteristics. All the children had the opportunity to pet the animals inside the pen and many children stroked and fed the animals.

Everyone really enjoyed the visit. Most of the school, including the children in the Nursery, came and had a look at our guests. We will definitely be inviting them back to school in the future.

Senior Girls day of Cirque du Soleil

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.
