Oak class – Geography field trip to the Nickey line (with Dizzy)

We went on a field trip to identify geographical issues; a highlight was that Dizzy accompanied us! We found and discussed many issues, some controversial issues and even a few positive topics: crops, man-made dams, building of new homes, litter, taging, recycling and nature returning.    Along the way, we also learnt some history about our local area for example about the Nickey line (an old railway, now cycle/walking path) and that our school was built on an old fireworks factory site and the name Brockswood comes from it’s name.

 

International Day

Every class in the school enjoyed learning about a different country. The children worked hard in a range of activities to find out more about other cultures. Every class was lucky enough to have a parent visitor, who shared information about their culture, taught the children to speak a few words in a different language as well as telling a story in another language. Throughout the day, each class spent 30 minutes learning a danced inspired by their country, culminating in a Dance Show in the afternoon. We look forward to continuing to celebrate our diverse community in the future.
