Early Years’ children get baking

27th October 2020

Harvest in Early Years saw the children get to grips with bread making and dough rolling and they went home happily with some delicious treats.  Pre-Kindergarten made hedgehog bread while Kindergarten created a storm of flour as they prepared delicious Autumn biscuits.  All the best celebrations involve food and this was no exception.    

Celebrating the harvest with our neighbours

Each year Broomfield enjoys a wonderful community experience in partnership with the Kew Neighbourhood Association.  Our generous families send in some luxury food items for our Harvest Festival Assembly and our Year 6 families and children have a wonderful time delivering them to around 50 local people who would love a harvest gift box.  Inevitably,…

Black History Month

Maths in the Great Outdoors

A great afternoon for Year 4 as they learned about maths while in beautiful Kew Gardens.  Estimating and measuring the distance between trees and comparing their girth were the order of the day.  They were all particularly amazed at how they could make a close approximation of the height of a tree using a folded…

Owl Babies
