Junior Christmas Plays

6th December 2019

The Junior Christmas plays were a real highlight of our Christmas preparations.  The children performed beautifully and kept us well entertained.  Pre-Kindergarten were utterly charming in their Nativity Play and Kindergarten had us thinking about playing together and sharing.  Their play, Snowman at Sunset, made us hope for snow at Christmas.  Year 1 took us on a journey to the North Pole as Penguin Pete travelled there to meet Santa, collecting friends on his way.  We wrapped up the afternoon with Bertie the Dinosaur as he struggled to find a part in the nativity play that suited his talents.  His teacher, Miss Rose, supported his search with patience until finally it became clear that Bertie was destined to play a star!

Arrangements for learning from 23 March

It is with regret that Broomfield House School will be partially closing from 3.30pm on Friday 20th March.  We have been open and providing our customary high quality education in school until this point but, following Government advice, we will now be fully supporting the children’s learning at home.  We have developed robust plans for this, working with our website provider and IT systems support and will be delivering age-appropriate teaching to our children and families.  We will be supporting many different ways of learning which will include text-based work, online lessons, video content and, with parental support, will be marking the children’s work and giving feedback to parents about it.  In Early Years we will also use the Tapestry system.

Developing these new ways of working and learning are exciting and we are confident that the innovations we are introducing to deal with these strange times will offer long term benefits to pupils, parents and staff alike.

We will continue to support the children of key workers at school to allow their parents to provide these critical services during the current situation.

We have no confirmed cases of COVID-19 among our school community.

May I take this opportunity to wish everyone well and hope you all stay safe and healthy.

With all good wishes
