Broadfield General Election

During the lead up to the general election this week, Mrs Despard and the School Councillors held a meeting to decide which political parties they wished to represent. Four parties were chosen: Conservatives, Labour, Liberal Democrats and the Green Party. The School Councillors then took part in a democratic vote which decided the leaders for each party. The children independently researched their chosen party and studied their manifestos. Having selected what they decided were their main points the children produced power points and visited each class in turn to try to persuade voters to vote for them.

All KS2 pupils voted and the results are as follows:

Mohsin Ali – Green Party  31

Haleema Ali Mehmood and Ella McLaughlin – Liberal Democrats  42

Rahath Abdul and Abbas Rafique – Conservative  54

Muskaan Arfan and Ying Shi – Labour  63

Congratulations Labour! Our winning candidates!

We would like to congratulate all children who took part – it was a very close call and all parties performed much better in our school than many of the representatives around the UK!


They’re hot on your heels!


Thursday 30th March children from Broadfield went to an Oldham Schools Change4Life initiative at the Castleshaw centre, Saddleworth. They experienced a day orienteering and climbing. The children challenged their fear of heights overcome it showing determination and resilience!

Google Expeditions

This week, the children in Unit 3 and 4 were lucky enough to have a session with Google Expeditions.  This meant that they used Google Cardboard headsets to explore 360 degree photos and films.  This is a form a virtual reality guided tour, enabling us to visit far away places without leaving the classroom.  

Classes went into the water to look at sharks, into space to stand on the Moon's surface in Neil Armstrong's footsteps, and to the pyramids in Egypt - amongst many others amazing things!

The children were incredibly excited about the new technology and the feedback from both children and staff was overwhelmingly positive.  Our new digital leaders group would like to further explore how VR can be used to enhance our learning even further.
