This page is dedicated to school news. We will update you here on whole school projects and information that we think you would like to know about.
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.

Here is a photo of some of our year 1 children accepting our certificate on behalf of the whole school. Well done everyone.
Our first update comes from our school Art and Design lead, Mr Rogers:
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.
