Get Caught Reading: Mr Drakes

Check out our latest Broadford member to Get Caught Reading during the holiday. 

Mr Drakes was snapped while he enjoyed reading his book while on a day out at the Thames Chase country park. If the photo had been taken ten minutes earlier it would have shown him fast asleep, catching flies. It certainly looked very sunny and peaceful. 

Great reading Mr Drakes!


Get Caught Reading: Jersey

Jersey was snapped while she enjoyed reading her book while on a holiday cruising the Norfolk Broads. It looked very sunny and peaceful. 

Great reading Jersey!

KS1 Reflectiveness Awards 2016

At Broadford we help the children to understand that the life long skill of Reflectiveness is about being ready, willing and able to become more strategic about learning - taking a longer-term view by planning, taking stock and drawing out your experiences as a learner to get the best out of yourself.

Your Reflectiveness is made up of..

Planning
Thinking about where you are going, the action you are going to take, the time and resources you will need and the obstacles you may encounter.

Revising
Being flexible, changing your plans in the light of different circumstances, monitoring and reviewing how things are going and seeing new opportunities.

Distilling
Looking at what is being learned - pulling out the essential features - carrying them forward to aid further learning; being your own learning coach.

Meta-learning
Knowing yourself as a learner - how you learn best;
how to talk about the learning process.

Well done to our KS1 pupils who have demonstrated these elements consistently across the whole year.

 

Police Cadets

We are delighted to announce that the Volunteer Police Cadet programme will be running again in September. Pupils in Year 6 will be issued with leaflets when they return next term.

If your child is unsure, they can enjoy a taster session which will help them to understand what opportunities there are.

The contact details are on the leaflet below.


KS1 Effort Awards 2016

Congratulations to our KS1 pupils who were chosen for the Excellent Effort award this year.

This reward is for pupils who have consistently shown that they are able to 'do their best in every lesson' throughout the entire year. 



Gabriella, Lily, Alice, Jorja & Matthew: well done to all of you for having the resilience to maintain such a high level of effort all year.

 

KS1 Resourcefulness Awards 2016

At Broadford we help the children to understand that the life long skill of Resourcefulness is made up of many elements. It involves being ready, willing and able to learn in different ways - using both internal and external resources effectively, calling on different ways of learning as appropriate.

Questioning.
Asking questions of yourself and others. Being curious and playful with ideas - delving beneath the surface of things.

Making links
Seeing connections between disparate events and experiences - building patterns - weaving a web of understanding.

Imagining
Using your imagination and intuition to put yourself through new experiences or to explore possibilities. Wondering 'what if...?'

Reasoning
Calling up your logical and rational skills to work things out methodically and rigorously; constructing good arguements and spotting the flaws in others.

Capitalising
Drawing on the full range of resources from the wider world - other people, books, the Internet, past experience, future opportunities....

Well done to the following pupils who have demonstrated these skills consistently across the whole year: Violet, Leah, Tilly & Alex.
