We have been using a range of resources to support our division skills this week.
Everyone had a brilliant time making and selling Christmas crafts!
On Wednesday was our Christmas jumper, Christmas dinner and Panto day! Thank you to the ladies in the kitchen for our very yummy dinner. What a lovely day had by all! A great start to Christmas. The countdown is now on!
The whole school has got into the festive spirit by decorating their classroom and office doors!
Don’t they look amazing! Can you guess who’s door is who’s?
Brockswood celebrated Black History Month this afternoon. They visited different teachers who each taught them about an influential man or woman from black history. Each class then spent time making an interpreted African Tribal Mask, writing their name in a version of African script and playing an African game called ‘Mbube Mbube’.
Can the children tell you about one of the people they learned about and why they were famous?
Today we had some visitors from Hemel library to tell us all about the summer reading challenge! This year’s theme is Space and all you have to do to participate is visit any library in Hertfordshire to sign up and get your sticker pack.
The challenge runs until 7th September. For more information visit www.spacechase.org.uk
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!
What fun we had splashing in the sea, relaxing in the sunshine and playing arcade games.
