Our little bundles of fluff

27th February 2020

Pancake, Pickles, Salah, Cuddly and Rose have all emerged from their eggs into the world of the Year 1 classroom.  As well as picking up some lessons in animal husbandry the class have been learning about the democratic process.  The children put forward their ideas for what their new charges might be called and then voted on them, hence the variety of names which were chosen.  It’s amazing how noisy something so small can be especially Pancake, the eldest.  The photograph below shows Pickles making his escape from his egg, it was an eggsausting process!  The ducklings are bringing a lots of happiness to the children who are looking forward to introducing them to water next week.  What a great time to be in Year 1.

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

Mrs Susie Byers
Headteacher
