Many of the School Campus pupils had the opportunity to meet the ducklings last week and even watched them swim! The pupils worked on developing their personal and communication skills through learning to handle them gently and talk about what they could see. A great experience for all!

The '1st Broomfield Columbus Scouts' is now open and we held our first meeting on 12th May. Eight Columbus pupils have joined us as Scouts and are learning to follow the structure of Scout meetings. We have been taking part in 'Scout Circle Time', playing team games, creating our patrol signs and starting to learn about the Scout Promise and Law. Later this term we hope to have a campfire and sports competition, as well as be joined by some St John Payne pupils as part of our Scout troop!

Pupils in Key Stage 3 had a fantastic afternoon recently, when the local Fire Brigade brought a fire engine to visit School Campus! The pupils had the opportunity to try on the helmets and jackets, explore the specialist equipment, use the hoses and sit in the back of the cab. This experience really brought to life some of the learning from our 'Transport' topic and we would like to thank the Fire Brigade for their time and generosity in enabling this to happen.

KS2 – Great Britain

Key Stage Two are continuing with their Great Britain topic this half term. 

In Geography, they have been learning about the good old British Weather. Class 6 had lots of fun trying out some clothing for a range of different weather.

In Food Technology lessons, pupils have been exploring products made from milk, and expressing their preferences for different flavours and textures.

They have made milkshakes and angel delight, as well as tasting lots of different milk and milk-alternative products – yum!
