Anti Bullying Week
We have recently celebrated Anti-bullying Week. Every class took part in a range of activities aimed at preventing bullying within our lovely school.
The theme this year was ‘United Against Bullying’ underpinning the idea that everybody has the power to combat bullying whether this is through telling an adult if you know of someone being bullied, or by knowing how to get help if you yourself are being bullied.
We finished the week off with our ‘Odd Sock Day’ to show that different can be cool and that we are all special in our own unique way. Please click here to read our full Anti-bullying week newsletter.
Young Royal Tunbridge Wells In Bloom
Earlier in the year we took part in the Young Royal Tunbridge Wells In Bloom competition. We were set an environmental challenge. We have just been awarded a certificate for our whole school engagment, which included creating bird boxes, planting trees and our forest school and outdoor learning projects. To find out more please follow the link below:
Here is a photo of some of our year 1 children accepting our certificate on behalf of the whole school. Well done everyone.
To celebrate the creativity at Broadwater Down the children were asked to create an impressive immersive art installation within our beautiful forest. This would prove to be a creative, inspiring and memorable start to the new term.
The children created individual pieces which were hung closely together from branches on selected trees. A pathway lined with woodland finds wound its way through the forest for the children to enjoy all the hanging art.
Their work was creative and colourful with a very personal “wish for the year ahead” secretly hidden within the piece or held in the children’s minds.
The experience of walking through the forest was reflective and thought provoking and gave the children a creative kickstart to this new artistic term.
