Let the Celebrations Commence

The annual assembly to reward and celebrate our Year 7 students opened in  a dramatic fashion with a drum duet from Maddie and Liam. 

Lots of laughter greeted the PE Department's slide show highlighting the range of activities on offer to Broughton students , as we witnessed runners reaching for the finish line and adopting postures rarely seen in the classroom.

Rehearsal for Year 7 Parents

Before every performance there are the inevitable rehearsals and Friday's assembly for parents was no different.  Mr Clitheroe, Mrs Boardman and Miss Cross  spent much of the morning sorting out the running order and the sound system whilst pupils worked around a busy schedule, including the Annual Debating Competition, to squeeze in a quick rehearsal on the drums or flute.

END OF TERM MUSIC:Choir & Swing Band Tour to Valkenburg

 The week before the end of Summer term, choirs and swing bands from Broughton and Archbishop Temple
School joined together for a trip to Valkenburg, Holland to perform at various venues around Valkenburg. During the trip students also enjoyed a trip to Phantasialand, a boat trip down the River
Meuse, karaoke and ten-pin bowling. The quality of music performed was excellent and all students enjoyed the experience very much.

A Peach of a Tool

Just discovered Photopeach at Media Club tonight and it's great for quickly making quizzes and slide presentations such as this one I just made IN LESS THAN 10 MINUTES! Plus its free! 

7S on PhotoPeach

Ms Cox asked us to have a play with this fabulous tool so that next academic year we can show teachers how to make a slideshow set to music in no time at all.  This will be one of the priorities for us digital leaders so that parents can enjoy even more celebrations of pupils' learning than we have managed to show here on The Flying Memo this academic year.

If you want to look again at the slideshows you saw in the Year 7 assembly for parents, please click on the Slideshows gallery tab above or click here.

Camelot Year 7

Megan Whitlock of 7S was charged with capturing the excitement of the Year 7 Merit Trip to Camelot using an ipod. Whilst the camera on this device is not the best available, we hope you agree the pictures capture the moment very nicely indeed.   Thank you, Megan.  Great job!
