You should read this lovely piece about our school, the pupils - your children described as delightfully polite, the staff, buildings, resources, projects and more. It is written on the Microsoft 'Hot Topics' blog by Mark Sparvell.
From 13th to the 20th February, teachers Chloe Farrant and Sarah Northcott will be travelling to New Dehli, India once again to link with our partner school, Jasola. They will be spending a week teaching in the schools, sharing resources and teaching methods as well as collecting work to bring back to England. The children have been preparing by writing letters and completing work around the topic of food. Some of the children have made food diaries, videos and leaflets to share their project work with the Indian children.
The two teachers established a link with Jasola in February 2014 when they visited India for the first time. Jasola is one school within a network of ‘Good Samaritan schools.’ These schools provide a good, valued education to underprivileged children in New Delhi and many lack space and resources.
The partnership has offered Broadclyst Community Primary School an insight into culture and customs across the world and has enriched the children’s understanding of diversity and citizenship.
To follow them on their travels once again, Chloe Farrant and Sarah Northcott will be posting regular blogs to the school website, or you can follow them on the BCPS Facebook page or Twitter.
In a home outing this time Broadclyst's first XI made excellent use of the large playing field to pass the ball expertly through the midfield and score some exquisite team goals. Sidmouth's goal came through an unstoppable freekick hit by their number 10, which made the game close at 2-1 however Broadclyst's class shone through in the end in what was a comfortable victory. Man of the Match today was Joe W, scoring 2 fantastically struck goals and linking play expertly throughout the game. Broadclyst second XI were also in action and were held to a 1-1 draw, with Jack B scoring our only goal in a fiercely fought game that ended level. Thanks to all the parents who helped to return goal posts back to school after the match!
Another brilliant effort from the Broadclyst netball team. This time 12 children from year 5 and 6 travelled to Simouth for a mini round robin of matches. Unfortunately there was no win this time although both teams played amazingly.
The scores were close with Broadclyst only losing out by 2 goals in the end. The match ended on a high note with the teacher from the other school praising the high standard of footwork by Broadclyst. Player of the match goes to Rio and Mimi for a positive attitude throughout all of the matches. Well done to everyone!
Year 1 have been looking at fossils and dinosaurs. Fossil art and a visit to Dinosaur World for 1ACM. 1NK are looking forward to walking amongst the dinosaurs in 2 weeks time.
Frozen toes, numb fingers and the rain didn't dampen the spirits of the Broadclyst Netball Team on Thursday. They travelled to Pinhoe to play their second game against them and came out as victors for the second time, 8-3 to Broadclyst. A massive well done to all of the players on both teams, it was a great game. Miss Northcott's player of the match has to go to both Megan and Freddie who did some super defending. They are now ready for a match against Sidmouth on Tuesday. Let's hope for some warmer weather!
In a hard fought game, Broadclyst's first XI were victorious against a resolute Pinhoe team. The first half proved to be challenging, finishing 1-0, with a breakthrough goal being scored by Thomas. Pinhoe defended well. After half time, Broadclyst began to find their passing rhythm, and were able to create more chances. Further goals from Camden, Louis, Jack and Joe completed the score. Excellent defending from Robert and Josh meant Freddie had a uneventful afternoon in goal but kept a well deserved clean-sheet.
We can finally let you know that we (Year 6 in particular) have been working with Microsoft and BBC Earth, creating educational resources to go alongside their incredible new 3D film, Enchanted Kingdom. What an honour! Read the full article on the Microsoft blog below:
