Spelling Bee: a close run thing

31st March 2020

Broomfield’s annual Spelling Bee saw children across the year groups focus on class-based spelling quizzes and we were delighted with how well everyone did, making their teachers very proud.  The Year 6 competition in class resulted in three children from each house competing for the trophy in the whole school assembly.  As the competition moved forward one pupil from each house stepped up to the stage to spell for their House.  The final head-to-head saw Mr Callander have to go further through his list of tricky spellings than ever before, as some faultless spelling was in evidence.  The challenge culminated in a win for Palmer, although it was very closely fought, and a rousing chorus of cheers for some brave and clever spellers.

Summer Term Arrangements

Broomfield’s summer term has begun and so has our remote learning programme.  With a mix of live interactive sessions, task and project–based work our students are experiencing the full breadth of the curriculum.  Our lessons allow maximum flexibility for families juggling the schedules of both parents and children.  We have had some lovely feedback from our families, such as:

“Please say thank you from the bottom of my heart to all the staff, and I appreciate how much work it is also for the teachers to deal with the new schooling.” Parent of children in Years 3 and 4.

“Please extend my congrats and thanks to the staff that are doing a great job.  We really appreciate your effort and commitment with the education and wellbeing of our kids.”  Parent of children in Pre-Kindergarten and Year 1

We can’t wait to be back in school again, but it’s good to know that our new ways of working are appreciated.
