Children at Bromsgrove School and Winterfold finding plenty to do during COVID-19 lockdown

CHILDREN from Bromsgrove School have been keeping busy with a variety of activities. including a nature walk and parachutes on a windy day.

On Friday the children played mini golf on a course laid out by Lynne Hadley and James Hodges and using specially designed scorecards.

Boarders, staying at the school over Easter, will be able to take part on evenings and weekends.

Redditch-based Baylis and Harding has donated handwash for Bromsgrove’s boarders and the children of key workers and children have been following the guidance on correct hand-washing procedures to protect others.

Boarders have also been split into three teams and will earn points over the Easter break for daily exercise, challenges and goals set by themselves – they will range from sports to reading a book and learning new things.

Brown’s Bears, named after Miss Brown, took on a gardening challenge and planted potatoes to earn some points. Albutt’s Alligators have done the same and Duffy’s Ducks are busy devising their challenges this week.

Youngsters from Winterfold School in Chaddesley Corbett have been continuing with their learning even though they are now on their Easter break.

Teacher Dave Loughton has been setting maths challenges, with children learning a variety of new skills, including reading map co-ordinates to guide themselves around their houses and gardens, solving numeric problems along the way.

Rebecca N decided to combine a Science and CDT lesson by getting her mum to draw around her body on some plain paper, before labelling body parts with sticky notes and finish with colouring pencils.

Another pupil took it upon herself to design and produce a new vegetable patch.

Dylan S from Winterfold has produced an amazing drawing to send off to the NHS Nightingale Hospital.

Connor and Evelina from Bromsgrove Pre-Prep and Nursery have also been busy painting pictures for the Nightingale.

Connor has written a poem on the back of each picture which reads:

“I am sending this message especially for you, in the hope that you’ll feel better and soon feel good as new!”
