All of Acorns have had a great start. We have been settling in and enjoying getting to know each other!
Year 5 Reading buddies received some very special gifts from their readers in Acorns class!
Vicky (Year 5) “When I first started Nicole found reading hard but now she doesn’t need as much help.”
Leo (Year 5) “At the start Malvin was less confident and now he loves reading.”
We had an amazing morning. Thank you to all the parents and carers who cheered everyone on and for the most hilarious parent race I have ever experienced in my time at Brockswood (What good sports you all are)!!!
At Brockswood we are passionate about our sport and were really excited with the build up to the England ladies match against the USA. We designed our own kits and decorated the walls. Although we lost we enjoyed watching and talking about the event. England ladies….. you are winners in our eyes!!
Brockswood were crowned the winners of the Healthy Hearts in Hemel Campaign beating the three other schools to claim the shield. The organisers said our effort and enthusiasm towards the whole event was amazing, combined with our walking bus we were clear winners…… I had to agree !!!! The shield and trophy are on the cabinet in school for all to see as is the insert from the local newspaper we made it into!!!
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!
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!
