Aladdin

The last two performances of the Musical Theatre Club's production of Aladdin are tomorrow. The children have been rehearsing once a week as part of an after-school club and I have been amazed by their achievement, and impressed by the children's ability to act, sing and remember all their lines in such a limited amount of time. The set and costumes are amazing, and have all been created by staff from the school with the help and support of parents. Each performance has got better and I can't wait to see how the children will perform tomorrow evening.

Year 5 Killerton Project

'For King and Country' was the title of the Year 5 Killerton Project this year. The project-based work over the past term came together today when the children recreated a day in August 1914. The children dramatised the lives of those on the Killerton Estate at the outbreak of WWI. The quality of the performances was superb and the children should be congratulated for the effort they all put into bringing their characters to life.

This morning's article on the Radio Exe website about our weekend trip to play at Twickenham:

(Amendment - we won 4-2. Well done BCPS Team!)

Ten young tag rugby players from Broadclyst primary school have won their Aviva Premiership Rugby Schools match at Twickenham... in front

They played Balsall Common Primary School from Bath in a seven-minute game during half-time, at Saturday's Aviva Premiership Final between Saracens and Northampton Saints... and they won 5-3.

It was their reward for emerging triumphant from this season's Aviva Premiership Rugby Schools Programme Festival, which was run by the Chiefs Community department at schools across Devon and Cornwall.

Microsoft Enterprise Project Reported on Exe FM

From the ExeFM website yesterday:

Pupils at a local school are gearing up to become international entrepreneurs.

Broadclyst Primary won 15 thousand pounds from the IT giant Microsoft in a Dragon's Den-style pitch earlier this year, with their idea for a Global Enterprise Challenge. They're now recruiting other schools around the world to get involved in the opportunities to devise products, make prototypes, do market research and finally sell them.

New School Hall and Kitchen

New School Hall and Kitchen

We have been successful in securing a central government grant to provide a long-needed  hall and dining facility for the school. Plans that have been drawn up by a company called NPS, on behalf of the Governing Body, will provide an exciting, visually pleasing and flexible space. It will include a professional catering kitchen that will be able to provide not only high-quality nutritious food at lunchtime, but throughout the day to parents, staff and children through the modern 'Academy Café'. This will build on the current service offered by the school. With the large spacious facilities, lunchtimes will be radically different. We will be able to deliver good home-cooked food in a family-orientated dining environment. During the day the flexibility offered by the partition walls will allow us to create a sports hall, and a flexible teaching space as well as a cyber café. Children will be able to change for PE in dedicated changing rooms. The front of the building will have a new main reception area.

The whole facility will be in keeping with the rest of the school and its cutting-edge, highquality technology will be seamlessly embedded into the overall infrastructure and feel of the building. The new hall will be used for assemblies, productions and musical performances, as well as being available for community use. We want it to be at the heart of the village of Broadclyst. During the academic year 2013/14 there will be the inevitable disruption due to the building work. We are endeavouring to minimise this disruption and are aiming to provide temporary dining facilities on the school premises.
