Braunstone Frith Primary School

New Building and Time Capsule

A few years ago we undertook an extensive building project at Braunstone Frith to provide new classrooms for our pupils. These new buildings were built to provide an excellent new resource and opportunities for the children, as well as to unite the school as one by ensuring a physical link between our two buildings.

We were lucky enough receive a visit from the Lord Mayor Sir Peter Soulsby to commemorate the building project by burying a time capsule. Our head teacher Amelia Smith was joined by The Lord Mayor, the Assistant City Mayor (who is responsible for education) Councillor Vi Dempster and Izzy Reid our chair of governors. We heard from the School Council about the importance of being one school and what this building means to the children. They then watched as pupils Bethany and Harry buried the time capsule.

 

Time Capsule Speech 

1 - Alayah: Here at the site of the old junior and infant schools, we are really proud to now be known as ‘Braunstone Frith Primary School’. 

2 - Jamie: The joining of the two schools means that we are even closer together as a ‘whole’ community.  It allows for more interaction between both pupils and staff.

3 - Bethany: For the pupils it means we are all one united team where we all know what’s happening within each key stage. 

4 - Brooke: For the staff it means they can now have the opportunity to teach across both key stages and support our learning even more!

5 - Naradzo: Our new school logo joins together all the good elements from each of the schools, with the focus still being on ‘positive thinkers and lifelong learners’.

6 - Betty: It’s good that the older key stage 2 children can now be role models for the younger children especially when they are having lunch together. It’s all about team work and communication.

7 - Kian: As a member of the school council, it is great to have the opportunity to work with both the key stage 1 and key stage 2 councilors in improving Braunstone Frith Primary School.
