Class Blogs During School Closure Due To COVID-19

Check out our Class Blogs for updates from class teachers about home learning activities, and suggested websites and apps. Your child’s class teacher will add a new message each day and some suggested activities. We hope you find this useful during this period of school closure.

Spring & Easter Holiday

During the Spring holiday, the out-of-school child-care service, BOSCA, will not operate while school is closed. As soon as information becomes available, the headteacher will  update parents/carers working in vital services about council plans for child-care during the Spring/Easter holiday.

Book Festival ~ March 2020

To coincide with World Book Day on 5th March 2020 and Glasgow’s Wee Write book festival from 12-29 March, Broomhill Primary will deliver a varied programme of events and activities designed to enthuse children and young people about the joy of reading and inspire the next generation of writers. Teachers have prepared activities for their own classes and we have a few exciting whole school initiatives taking place.

We were thrilled to have Richard Dikstra, author of the children’s book series Tigeropolis, visit our school on Friday 6 March 2020 for a talk and book signing. Richard’s books, aimed at P3-P6, are an introduction to wildlife conservation in a light-hearted and upbeat way.  Richard has close ties with the Broomhill community, as his parents had shop very nearby on Crow Road. Check out Richard’s books and online Tigeropolis game at  https://tigeropolis.co.uk/blog/

A big thank-you to everyone who donated a second-hand book or magazine on World Book Day to help replenish our school libraries.

Primary 4 children kicked off the Book Festival by attending a stellar line up of children’s authors at The Mitchell Library on Tuesday 3rd March featuring: 

Children’s Laureate, Cressida Cowell, Creator of How to Train Your Dragon.
