Keep on walking Brockswood !!!

Brockswood have been reaping the benefits of walking. Not only have we got on the walking bus we had lunch time walks and ate our lunches in the park as part of walk to school week. We also recorded how many children walked to school each day. Lets see if we can beat our number of walkers next year!

A big thank you to all the parent walkers who joined the walking bus….your support is much appreciated!

 

Beegu and sports

This week, we have been looking at the story Beegu. We became comic book authors and learned all about speech bubbles. Some of us made some Beegu models and we painted pictures of Beegu. Later on in the week, we were invited to a ‘mini-Olympics’ at Hemel Hempstead leisure centre. The children were amazing and we came in 5th place out of 11 schools! Well done, Acorns!

Space travel

Acorns have loved learning all about the planets this week with a visit from the mobile planetarium. They learned all about the atmosphere on different planets, as well as what the different planets are made of. We have also been looking at money and paying for our ticket to get into the planetarium. Some children even made amounts using different coins up to 10 and 20p!

Science week

This week was all about space, science and experimenting in Acorns. We made our own rockets and not only did we get to work with the older children in Year 3 making plastic out of milk, we also got to make a rainbow on a plate! Later on in the week, we had a science treasure hunt and made an ‘exploding rocket’ with cola and mints. The children have thoroughly enjoyed all of the experiments this week!
