Tag Rugby - February 2018
On Thursday 8th of February a group of children from year 5 and 6 participated in a tag rugby event. It was run by the Saracens sport foundation and played at the Lincolnshire rugby club. Unfortunately, the weather was not on our side so consequently they had to play on a muddy pitch, which affected the games entirely. However, it did not stop Breachwood from playing to the best of their ability!
The team persevered and had a great time winning nearly all their matches. Our team tried hard to get as many tries as they possibly could, winning one of the matches 8-1 to Breachwood. The adults gave the team lots of moral support throughout the matches which led them to victory, however this event was not a competition, but just about taking part.
Teamwork played a crucial part in this tournament and, luckily, they all seemed to have it! They all co-operated together and formed the perfect team. The children played exceedingly well and therefore they turned up at school with a proud feeling!

Cracking Christmas Lunch
The children (and staff!) had a cracking time at our Christmas Lunch. The food was fantastic and some children even ate brussel sprouts, despite their dislike for them, just to take part in the festive spirit.
Look and Learn Morning
We were really pleased to see so many people able to attend our Look and Learn session on Friday 15th December. The children enjoyed tackling the problems with their parents and showing them the great work they have in their books. One parent commented, 'Lovely to see in person what the children are doing in school and to feel involved in their learning.'
The Great Fire of Breachwood Green
For their history topic this term, Class 2 have been learning about The Great Fire of London and were lucky enough to be visited by Herts Fire Service.
‘On Monday, the fire engine came to visit us and they set our houses on fire. We made our houses, for our homework, out of paper. The firemen set fire to our houses! They put the fire out with the hose and some buckets too. At the end, they flattened them and put them in a can. It was great fun!’ By Saul and Maria
This really is bringing learning to real-life!
To celebrate Children in Need’s Spotty Day, and raise the profile of maths across the school, we held a Smartie Day. This is what the children have to say about it:
‘We each had Smarties and had to make them into maths. We learnt about axis because we were making bar charts. When we went into assembly, at the end of the day, we got challenged to keep the Smartie on our tongue! We all had lots of fun.’
By Joel and Lexi
Thank you to the PTFA for supplying the Smarties!
Talking About Toys
Class 1 would like to say a big thank you to Nana Linda, Mrs Barton and Mrs Hughes for sharing their toys from their childhood with the class as part of our topic on Toys. The children were able to see and hear about all sorts of different toys children played with over the last 80 years.
New Maths Resources
We would like to thank the school PTFA for purchasing lots of great new maths resources. A number of children have commented that maths lessons are more enjoyable and that they are beginning to understand more within the lessons. A great purchase - thank you to everyone who has helped over the years to raise the money to buy these.
Pumpkin Carving October 2017
As part of our close community link with Asda, Class 2 and 3 were lucky enough to be provided with a Pumpkin Carving Workshop. The children worked together in teams to design their pumpkin, remove the insides and then carve their finished face. Everyone had great fun taking part and as a bonus, the children that showed the best team work were allowed to take their pumpkins home!
Each class took part in our annual Football Tournament as part of Health Week. Each house chose their own country to represent and dressed in their house colours.
The children showed great teamwork throughout the morning and enjoyed supporting their house.
The winners were Yellow house representing Portugal. With Red house (Italy) coming 2nd, and Blue house (England) in 3rd place.
