Spring Term Musical

On Thursday evening, Years 3 and 4 wowed us in the Spring Musicals. Year 3’s performance was ‘It’s All Greek To Me’, a play based on a group of school children and their dinner lady being transported to Ancient Greece. Year 4 shone in The Pied Piper, a fable that teaches us the importance of keeping our promises. The children were brilliant, their singing raised the roof, and their costumes were fantastic. A big thank you to Mrs. Frey’s amazing artwork too!

The Incredible Egg Delivery

This week, the ‘Incredible Eggs’ project in Year 1 has ignited extraordinary enthusiasm and interest among children, staff, and parents alike, with the hatching of Pom Pom, Quacky Chan, Cutie, George, and Daisy—our five adorable ducklings! It’s been a truly remarkable experience for the children as they explore life cycles, engage in observational learning, and discover the responsibilities of caring for these charming ducklings.

Mead House Cake Sale and Raffle

Last Friday, Mead House successfully raised an impressive sum of £580.16 to support Pioneer School in India. This generous contribution will go towards purchasing a computer for the school, enhancing educational opportunities for their students. A heartfelt thank you to all the Mead families for showcasing their baking talents, making the cake sale a delightful experience for everyone. Friday’s assembly buzzed with excitement as numerous prizes were won in the raffle. A special note of gratitude to all Broomfield families for their unwavering support.

Year 3 to Natural History Museum

Year 3 spent Monday 11th  March being palaeontologists at The Natural History Museum. They dug for fossils, learnt about dinosaurs and got to see Mary Anning’s incredible discoveries. With each discovery, they unravelled the mysteries of prehistoric life, learning about the fascinating existence of dinosaurs that once roamed the Earth.

Through engaging exhibits and captivating narratives, the pupils were transported back in time to witness Anning’s incredible contributions first-hand, igniting a spark of inspiration within each of them.

Sports Highlight

This Wednesday the red netball team played in the ISA U11 National Netball Finals, having qualified through the regional rounds in January. The team worked exceptionally hard finishing 4th in their pool and semi-finalists in the Trophy play-off. Mrs Hughes and Miss Mooney are very proud of the girls and all the hard work and commitment they showed attending extra coaching sessions in the lead up to the tournament. Well done girls!

Art Highlight

Year 6 looked at paintings by L.S.Lowry. They used elements of his artwork to make mono prints which they coloured with gouache. The children combined the mono prints with photos and assembled them into a collage.
