Winter Singing Celebrations!

winter-singing-clipart-1

This week we have held 3 performances of our Winter Singing Celebration!

All the classes in school have been practising their songs over the past few weeks, and we also had performances from our P6 cellists, our Brass players and a P5 recorder group. As well as fantastic musical performances, our House and Vice Captains also took part as narrators and introduced each act to the stage, as well as welcoming the audiences and collecting their tickets.

Huge thanks and well done to all our fantastic staff for organising such fantastic singing, reading and playing!

Well done to all the children, for participating so well!

And thanks to everyone who came along and supported us in the audience! We hope you were entertained!

New House Shields

House captain badges

We decided to revamp our House Shields, as it has been a few years since they were created. This year’s House Captains launched a school wide competition to design new shields for our 4 houses.

There were many, many entries for our House and Vice captains to judge. Here they are in the middle of their judging- if you look closely you can see the strain in their faces at the difficult task they had in choosing a winner…

However, they did eventually pick 4 new designs, and we’re proud to share them now!

Well done to everyone who entered, it was a really tough decision for the House and Vice captains to make. So, in no particular order, here are the shields that will represent the 4 houses.

Sportshall Athletics

On November 26th a group of our P6 and P7 pupils, selected by our PE teacher Mrs Ramm, went to the Jack Kane Centre to an inter-schools athletics event.

10 schools took part in total, and we came a close 5th on the day. We took part with great enthusiasm and sportsmanship, and Mrs Ramm and our adults who accompanied the group were very proud of our team.

Well done to all, here are some video clips of our team in action!

Winter’s Night

Over the past couple of months, our P6 classes have been learning songs to allow them to take part in a very special concert, held at the Queen’s Hall on Monday night, called  Winter’s Night.

The P6s performed alongside children from 4 other schools on Monday. They spent all day at the Queen’s Hall rehearsing their performances, and then performed for parents and carers in the evening.

We are incredibly proud of all our pupils! They did so well to learn their songs, they performed them all beautifully, and they stayed focused right through what was a very long day for them. Huge congratulations, and massive thanks to the show organisers, and the class teachers for helping this amazing opportunity happen! Thanks also to any of our parents and carers who were able to come along to the show and support us!

Swimming Success!

The Edinburgh Schools Swimming Championships were held earlier this term. Broughton pupils attended, and the team had some successful results! Eilidh Noronha from P7b came first in the Backcrawl and Jedrzej Przychodzki from P7b came 6th in the Freestyle!

Because of these results, both Eilidh and Jedrzej  have qualified for the Scottish Schools Swimming Championships which will take place in Glasgow at the Tollcross Pool on Saturday 26th January!

What an exciting achievement! We wish them both the best of luck!

A group of Broughton pupils attended the Active Schools Day of Dance last Saturday. There were a few nervous faces backstage but once the performance was over, everyone realised how much fun they had had!

Please see the link below to see the photos that were taken (Broughton photos can be seen on page 5).
