Tony Knight 'Dog Whisperer' visits Broughton Primary School to teach all of the pupils how to behave safely around dogs.
The School Council visited Andrew Percy their MP at the Houses of Parliament on Monday 16th March 2015. The pupils travelled by bus, train and the underground to London. Andrew gave them a brilliant tour of the Houses of Parliament and then spent time with the pupils answering their questions on democracy and what it's like to be an MP. After the visit with Andrew they took a flight on the London Eye, walked up to Trafalgar Square, along The Mall to Buckingham Palace, and then caught a fast train back home to Broughton- all in one very full day!
Pupils at Broughton Primary School celebrated Commonwealth Week 2015 by studying a range of different Commonwealth countries. Each year group created a passport full of information about their studied country. The passport allowed them to board a cruise ship and sail to the Caribbean, where a beach party was held.
2015 marks the 750th anniversary of the Montfort Parliament, where elected representatives of the shires and boroughs came together for the first time. To mark this important year, the 2015 Flag Project invites Primary school students (ages 7-11) across the UK to design a flag to represent their constituency. Explore the fantastic designs submitted by county, by constituency or by using the interactive map. Click on a flag to take a closer look and find out the inspiration behind the design, or upload your own flag to add to this unique collection.
Pupils in Y6 took part in the 2015 Flags Project with the Houses of Parliament, having been nominated by our MP Andrew Percy. You can see our winning entry and others by clicking here
Explanation as to the reasoning behind the design: The green was chosen to represent the agriculture that our area is known for. The blue was chosen to represent the rivers that are in our region: Ancholme, Ouse, Trent and Humber. The wheat represents the large number of farms that grow cereal crops, with the tractor also referring to the farming community which is strong in our area too. The windmill refers to the large number of windmills that were present in the Brigg and Goole area, whilst also making reference to the recent building of electricity generating wind turbines. How the final design was decided: All the children in Year 6 were told about the project. We discussed the symbolism present in many flags today, and mind mapped what symbols could represent our area. All the children made their own designs. The two Year 6 teachers then narrowed it down to the top 3 and worked with the children to combine the best parts of all their flags - the product being our submitted flag design.
Our view of education can best be summed up by the following Chinese proverb:
Parents are reminded that outside of the School environment it is possible to change the settings of this image search engine, allowing inappropriate material to be displayed. Security software prevents this within School. It is our belief that children of Primary School age should not be left unsupervised while using the internet.
