Black History Month

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?

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!
