What a fantastic example of acts of kindness to set to our children! The raffle from the coffee morning will be drawn on Friday. Look out on the blog for the winners!

End of Term

What a wonderful term in school we have had and the impact of a busy but, certainly from my point of view, extremely positive and productive term can be seen by all. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the students for their diligence and achievements so far this year. We have so many success stories to share and good news items to celebrate together. I would also like to thank the staff for their dedication and hard work, as well as parents and carers for your continued support of Broadford Primary School and our students.

Once again, I would like tell to you what an honour it is to lead such a fantastic school and privilege to be part of the Learning Federation. . I hope you and your family have an enjoyable and restful break. I look forward to seeing your children refreshed and ready to learn on 18th April.

Wednesday 29th March is the second graduation ceremony of the week. We would like to invite all parents of pupils who have studied the following course;

Astonishing Acrylic Painting
Cracking Clay Club
Comfy Cushions
Amazing Architects
Crazy Cross Stitch

The doors will open for guests at 2.15pm. The students work will be displayed around the hall. Your child will be in the hall to meet you and show you around the Art Exhibition. At 2.30 pm we will ask all guests to take a seat so that we can present the students with their degree certificates. 

We look forward to welcoming as many parents as possible. 

University of Broadford Graduation Ceremony No 1

Monday 27th March saw the first students from the class of 2017 graduate from the University of Broadford. 

With the thrill of having an audience before them, the Scintillating Circus Skill graduates opted to show off their juggling skills and their diabolo skills in a fun and impressive way which absolutely dazzled their parents and peers. They even taught Mrs Nicholls and Ms Wise a few skills!

Broadford Paralympians described how they have welcomed new challenges and collaborated with each other to accomplish great things. We also watched some fantastic clips of them in action!

Over the 10 weeks, the I’m a Pupils get me out of here! students have been completing team challenges, using their learning powers of resourcefulness, reciprocity, resilience and reflectiveness. We found out during the graduation that Team Kirk has earned the most points and took home the trophy!

Players choose their first opponents in the Chess tournament. The loser of each game was eliminated. Players continued to protect and capture using the special moves they had learned, until one chess player was left standing. Kaine Painter was crowned the ultimate chess champion. Well done Kaine!

The Broadford Bakeoff finale was a dessert that no one could refuse. A mixture of marshmallows, mars bar, malteasers, chocolate, cherries and much more. This Rocky Road treat allowed the bakers to show off all the skills they have learnt throughout the course. And it was absolutely delicious! 

Congratulations to all of the graduates!

We are always looking at ways in which we can become environmentally friendly and reduce our carbon footprint. We have received fantastic and very positive feedback in regards to the online booking system which has been implemented for parents evening appointments and this has significantly reduced the amount of paper used in school. From the beginning of next term we would like to trial a new system for the circulation of the weekly newsletters. If you would like to continue to receive a paper copy or an electronic copy of the newsletter  please come into the office and inform Mrs Taylor. If you do not make a specific request you will be able to access the newsletter on the school blog and facebook page every Friday. I am sure you will agree with us that this will go a long way towards us becoming a ‘greener’ school and working towards a better future for all of our children.  

Parents Evening - 28th & 29th March

We are looking forward to welcoming parents into school on Tuesday 28th and Wednesday 29th March for parent consultations. Your child will be bringing home today an appointment time for you to meet with their teacher and find out how they are progressing this year. On this occasion the pupils books will be available for you to look through and these will be situated outside the classroom in trays. Please feel free to have a look at the work and then return the books in the trays to the table. Looking forward to seeing you all next week.

Broadford Cycles for Smoothies!

This week at Broadford, all classes from Nursery to Year 6 participated in smoothie making using a specifically designed bike, with the blades powered by pedals.

As part of the Big Pedal, it was great to see the children engage so positively with bikes and healthy eating. Some of the fruit in the smoothies were ones the children had never tried before!

The smoothie bike was fun because we got to create a smoothie using delicious fruit and hard work! I made a tropical smoothie which had coconut and mango in it!

The smoothie was delicious, I wanted more!
