Hello everyone!

We hope you are having a nice Thursday, and have managed some of your home learning tasks.

Here is an exciting link about some new resources from CGI- STEM based activity packs that you can do at home with your children. The activities are aimed at students aged 6-14, but everyone can get involved!
Activities will encompass all aspects of STEM, including coding, environmental sustainability and robotics. There will be a range of activities each week, involving activities with technical, practical and physical elements.

Find all resources below and bookmark the page to return for more.

We are emailing  letters out today to inform P1-3 and P4-7 parents about how we want to introduce ways of adding assessment tasks to our home learning. The letters are attached below-

P1-3 Assessment in Home Learning

P4 pupils will also be receiving their usernames and passwords to allow them to access Teams soon. Home learinng will be on Teams for P4 beginning on Tuesday 5th May. We hope you enjoy using it!

We are keen to find out some feedback about how our home learning is being managed. With this in mind, please follow the link below to take part in a short survey to help us find out how things are going for you in regards our home learning so far-

Happy Wednesday (SVG Cut file) by Creative Fabrica Crafts ...

Hello everyone, hope you are all keeping well!

It’s Wednesday already, and we’re halfway through another week of home learning! Hope you enjoy today’s tasks.

Our latest news comes in the form of our Hub School at Drummond High School. Yesterday it was Broughton staff’s turn to volunteer, and the Hub Team were visited by press from the Times Educational Supplement, who were writing an article about how the Hub schools work. You can read the article by clicking below!

TES Hub School Article

As our school closure continues, we are trying to think of ways to improve how we share your learning with you. In future you may notice that our teachers are starting to try and use more videos in their home learning, to try and move your learning forward. These videos will be available on Teams for those classes who use Teams, and also on the class website pages for those who do not use Teams.

As we mentioned yesterday, we will be regularly deleting previous home learning from class website pages , as videos can take up a lot of space on our website. As advised yesterday, if you see an activity or video you have found useful, you can save it or download it to your device if you can, as we will be deleting some videos at the end of each week, to make way for new learning.

Speaking of Teams, parents and carers of pupils in P4 should look out for an email later this week, with information, usernames and passwords to allow access to Teams starting next Tuesday 5th May.

Miss Bradley wants to inform Nursery parents that Learning Journals have updated the Parent Contribution page. Parents can now upload photos and documents to their child’s page of any home learning activities. We look forward to seeing those!

Our Twitter Throwback Quiz is proving to be quite tricky for some of you! Make sure to follow us to @Broughton_PS to play along!

Enjoy the rest of your day everyone! As always, stay safe!

Finally, Mrs Clark has put together a dance activity, which has ideas that can be used across age groups. You could record yourself dancing and share it with us! You could even try and dress up as your chosen animal to make a real performance of it! Here is a link to the activity-

Our Twitter Throwback Quiz continues today, and it’s proving to be a really tricky challenge! Guess the member of Broughton staff from their childhood picture.

We’d also like to let you know, that in order to free up space to add future content on to our website, we will be deleting all home learning tasks from before the Easter holidays, from class pages on our website, on Friday. If you have enjoyed a particular activity and would like to use it again, please take this opportunity to download or save it to your device before it is deleted.

That’s all for today folks, enjoy the rest of your day and as always, stay safe!

How To Transform 'Blue Monday' Into The Most Positive Day Of The Year

Hello everyone, and happy Monday to you all!

We hope you all had a nice weekend, and were able to enjoy the lovely weather, while observing social distancing obviously!

It’s the start of a new Home Learning week, with new weekly grids up on the class web pages. Also, today is the first day of P5 using Microsoft Teams to access their learning. We hope you enjoy using Teams, please let us know if you have any issues. Remember we posted guidance and videos on our website last week, so hopefully they can help you too. This week we will be setting up P4 to begin using Teams next week. Just to make you all aware, next week will be a shorter Home Learning week, due to the in-service day and May holiday in the calendar- so tasks will only be available Tuesday to Thursday next week.

Tomorrow Broughton staff will be attending the Hub School at Drummond, so it will be nice to see some familiar faces there! All our staff are commenting on how much we are missing seeing all the children face to face- we’re sure the feeling’s mutual!

Today also sees the start of our new Twitter Quiz. Each day will see a throwback photo of one of the Broughton staff when they were a child. All you have to do is guess who it is! This should be fun…

We have a couple of website ideas today. Firstly, RBS Moneysense have launched a free home learning resource for financial education.  Follow the link below to find out more-

Moneysense Home Learning

Also, Brittanica have launched a new Home Learning e-book, which can be downloaded to get advice on home schooling, gain access to award-winning digital resources, and a range of ready-made activities to support children of all ages and abilities. Follow the link below for more-

We hope you enjoy the rest of your day! Stay safe and look after each other!

Happy Friday! Kick back and Relax with Mr Tubs Pork Crackling - News

Good morning everyone!

We hope your first week back has gone well and that you are managing to access your learning either through the website of through Teams (P6 and P7). All Primary 5 parents have now been sent their child’s login details for Teams so children should be able to access learning in this way from Monday 27th April.

Please let us know if you are having any problems with either accessing learning or finding a device to access your learning on.

This week we have been able to distribute almost all of the home learning packs that were not collected on the final day of school. We still have a very small number left so if you have not yet received yours, then please get in touch.

There are a large number of learning websites with great materials available to children. There are links to these on this website.

Today was our last ‘Through the Keyhole’ puzzler on our Twitter feed. However, look out next week for the start of a brand new photo quiz! Follow us on Twitter @Broughton_PS to play along!

We hope you all manage to have a good weekend.

Take care,

Mrs Venn, Mr Borthwick, Miss Bradley and Mrs Gowans
