Oak’s various school outings!

Oak were lucky enough to have two trips last week!

First off, we visited the RAF Museum at Hendon to support our learning around our current topic of World War 2.

  

It was lovely to see the children getting involved with all the different activities, asking great questions during our workshop and interested in the many old planes we saw during our time there. They even looked very smart in the jackets of real life war soldiers and were very respectful of them. Well done Oak class.

 

 

Next up, we had our second trip of the week to an event at Hemel Hempstead fire station called Crucial Crew.

Before anything though was the great experience of getting a public bus to the event!

The children had the opportunity to learn about some of the possible dangers they may encounter as they get older and more independent. It gave them some great skills to remember and ways of dealing with different situations and issues.

 

 

Overall, the whole week was thoroughly enjoyable and the children behaved impeccably and were great ambassadors of Brockswood School. Well done Oak class, we are extremely proud of you all!

Verulamium

Year 4 had a brilliant day at Verulamium park and Museum today!

We had time too visit the hydrocaust, wall remains and the museum. We even had time to play some games and in the park!

Thank you to all the staff and volunteers who helped us on our trip and a big well done to Year 4 for your impressive behaviour and attitude the entire day!

 

 

            

Trip to the Global theatre

We were lucky enough to take a trip into London. After a tour of the famous theatre, we then spent an enjoyable hour acting out the famous Shakespearian play Romeo and Juliet. We had a fabulous time exploring the sounds he used in the play: the consonants d, s and t represented angry sounds whereas the vowels a, e and o were love.

We also walked on a bridge that went over the Thames and saw other things from a distance too like the Tate Modern Art Galery, St Paul’s Cathedral, Tower Bridge, the Shard and if we looked quickly, the London eye!
