On Thursday 21st June, the children in class 4 spent the day at Mead Open Farm. They spent a lot of time with the animals, which included bottle feeding the sheep. They enjoyed a tractor ride and a picnic lunch. The children ended the day with a run around the soft play area.
On Wednesday 13th June, class 6 spent the day at Woburn Safari Park. The children enjoyed the road safari, in particular when the monkeys wouldn’t get off the roof of the coach and the giraffes refused to move off the road! They had lunch surrounded by excited chickens and spent the afternoon exploring the different animal enclosures. The highlight of the trip was stroking an African elephant and watching the naughty monkeys being fed. The children all learnt a lot and that had a brilliant day. Read more »
On Tuesday 12th June, the pupils in classes 8 & 9 spent the day at Legoland in Windsor. The children had a fantastic day; they went on the rides which included gaining their LEGO driving licence, laser shooting in the Kingdom of the Pharaohs and the Scarab Bouncer. They watched the Pirate Stunt Show, which required a balance between eating lunch and cheering on the good pirates in order for them to defeat the bad pirates! This truly was a brilliant day, enjoyed by everyone without exception!

On Saturday 24th March 2018, children from Broughton Manor and their parents attended the matinee performance of ‘The Pirates of Penzance’ at the Royal Theatre in Northampton, starring our Deputy Head, Mrs Rachel Smith. It was a great afternoon, and everyone enjoyed themselves enormously. For some of our younger children, it was their first taste of a classical musical production which was set in a nursery playroom; it was fun, modern and highly entertaining. Many thanks to all
the parents for bringing their children along for this memorable experience! Read more »
On Thursday 15th March, the children in class 6 (Year 1) visited Milton Keynes Museum yesterday, in support of their current class topic, Sound and Communication..
The children spent the morning calling each other on old fashioned telephones, pretending to be Victorian school children, listening to old fashioned musical instruments and learning
about the history of communication.
They had many interesting questions to ask the volunteer staff at the museum and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the hands on activities.
After a picnic lunch, the children looked around the old shops and discovered how people got around before the car was invented.
