As we approach the last two weeks of this term I move very rapidly into retirement. I have never been a person to look back, just reflect then move forward but on this occasion maybe a trip down memory lane could be justified.

Broadstone Hall Primary School are delighted to announce that we have received a grant from the national lottery to develop are outdoor learning area over the next year. Children have already been using the area for learning activities and every class form year 1 to year6 has done some planting in the year group beds. The eco-council have also been helping to plant new trees and maintain the area. Some pupils have also had some "forest school" taster sessions in the outdoor area before half term. There will be some exciting developments over the next few weeks, keep your eyes open.
At Broadstone Hall we always try to use parents' evening as an opportunity for our governors to find out what you think about the school.

On Monday 24th November we had some very special visitors in our school assembly! Lisa Humphreys and the very cuddly, green Humphrey the bear from the Giggle Doctors charity joined us to be presented with a cheque! We have raised a fantastic £4656.10 by holding cake sales, onesie days and other sponsored events and Humphrey was delighted to accept the cheque on behalf of the Giggle Doctors. Many thanks to you all for your generous donations.
The Football teams had a successful start to their league campaign last week. Both teams played against Norris Bank in a home fixture on Thursday night and did very well. The A team won 5-4 after a very exciting game that they were leading 3-0 at one point. The B teams had a more straight forward 3-0 victory. The A team look set to have one more game before Christmas against Abingdon on the MUGA pitch. It will definitely be a case of floodlights on! Well done to both teams.
