On Wednesday 24th May, the children in class 6 visited to Buckingham Garden Centre in support of their current topic,
Plants and Growth. They used their five 5 senses to touch, smell, hear, taste and look at different types of plants. The
‘Lamb’s Ear’ was very soft and the ‘Scaredy Cat’ was very smelly! They looked at the aquatic fish and found Dory, before moving outside to feed the Koi Carp.
The children also learnt about the life cycle of a chicken and how they differ to mammals. Finally, we visited their allotment where they planted some beans. They looked at the bees wax and learnt about propagation and we ate our picnic lunch in the meadow and enjoyed the peace and quiet.
During the afternoon of Wednesday 24th May, the pupils in class 11 made the most of the good weather with an afternoon of Team Building and Problem Solving, within the school grounds.
On Tuesday 23rd May, the pupils in classes 8 and 9 spent the day at Woburn Safari Park. We began the day with the road safari; fortunately, we had lovely weather and all the animals were out basking in the sun. Tigers and bears were within inches of our coach and some very cheeky monkeys were playing in the trees, much to the fascination of the children. Later in the day, we visited the Sea-Lion Cove, where Monica the Sea-Lion performed some incredible tricks for us. The children also attended a talk at Desert Springs, where they learnt about Meerkats, Porcupines and Mongoose. The remainder of the day was spent looking at the other wonderful animals Woburn has to offer including the Penguins, Wallabies and Lemurs. A great day was had by all! Read more »
On Tuesday 23rd May, two members from the Two Villages Archive Trust, visited the children in Class 11 (Year 6) to take about how Broughton and Milton Keynes Village have changed since Medieval times. As part of their local history topic, the children gained an insight into how the land, roads and buildings have developed through the ages. Through paintings, photos, maps and artefacts, the children accessed a wealth of information to build a chronology of significant developments in the local area. The session culminated in a guided walk and a visit to the church of St Lawrence in Broughton.
On Thursday 18th May, the pupils in classes 10 and 11 visited All England Lawn Tennis Club at Wimbledon. During the day, they had a behind the scenes tour of the grounds and visited the fascinating museum and shop. Read more »

This half term, the children in class 5 (Reception) have been learning about Weather and Seasons. On Tuesday 24th January, the children visited Howe Park Woods; where they were able to explore the natural woodland (and play in the play area!). They ran through the woods and thoroughly enjoyed the freedom of the ‘great outdoors’. We went in search of evidence of woodland animals and their habitats; and were lucky enough to find mole holes, minibeasts and even a bear cave!!! Sadly we did not see a bear, however if you go down to the woods and you do spot that bear, please do let us know!
This half term, the children in class 4 have been learning about ‘Bears’. They have been looking at different types of bears, where they live and what they eat.
On Friday 27th January, the children spent the morning making teddy bear biscuits and sandwiches for their picnic lunch and they watched a film about a Polar Bear. This was followed by a Bear Hunt in the Spinney and they took their teddy bears down to the Assembly Hall, where they ALL enjoyed a Teddy Bears’ Picnic
