Pirates in Cherry!

We received a letter from a pirate called Captain Pete Pigeon. We are learning how to become pirates and write a letter back to scare him away!


We looked at images of pirates to find out what their likes and dislikes are.

We thought of our own pirate names. We also decided on a name for our ship and wrote the introduction for our letters. We used the i-pads and a pirate translator to re-write this in pirate language.

Music in the air!

Over the autumn term we listened to some fantastic and varied music through our seasonal ‘music focus’

Our Christmas music assembly was a great way to end the term and link what we had been listening to, with a wide variety of music performed by classes across the school.

Many people were also delighted to receive the school cd ‘the voices of Brockswood’  featuring many solos and a wonderful cover designed by Arron in Rowan class. There’s still time to order a copy from the office should you wish to.

We can’t wait to hear all the wonderful music in the air this half term.

‘Shepherds Delight’ Nativity Success!

What a wonderful way to kick off all the musical things that happen as we head into Christmas!

Now this wonderful backdrop will come down to make room for all the instruments that will fill the stage on Tuesday at our Christmas music assembly 🎶
