Oak were lucky enough to have two trips last week!
First off, we visited the RAF Museum at Hendon to support our learning around our current topic of World War 2.
It was lovely to see the children getting involved with all the different activities, asking great questions during our workshop and interested in the many old planes we saw during our time there. They even looked very smart in the jackets of real life war soldiers and were very respectful of them. Well done Oak class.
Next up, we had our second trip of the week to an event at Hemel Hempstead fire station called Crucial Crew.
Before anything though was the great experience of getting a public bus to the event!
The children had the opportunity to learn about some of the possible dangers they may encounter as they get older and more independent. It gave them some great skills to remember and ways of dealing with different situations and issues.
Overall, the whole week was thoroughly enjoyable and the children behaved impeccably and were great ambassadors of Brockswood School. Well done Oak class, we are extremely proud of you all!
With such wonderful art work completed by our children throughout the year we have a new ‘artists of the year’ gallery displayed for visitors to view.
Displaying a selection of art works from all year groups, you will see Roman mosaics, tributes to the Battle of Britain, dragon eyes and more.
Do come and take a look and admire the children’s work.
Also we are so pleased to share some of the amazing pictures taken by our school photographer in our ‘little mermaid’ display. Be sure to take a look at these too!
Happy summer holidays everyone! 🙂
We made juggling balls. We selected the pattern we wanted, designed a pattern, cutting, pinning and swing the ball. Then we ironed the pattern that was drawn on using plastic sticks so that it sealed fast.
It worked for some…
Some need finishing…
And for some we had teething problems 🙂
A big thankyou to everyone who attended yesterday’s summer concert. We had so much fun showing everyone our musical performances and singing songs from our ‘eurovision’ and ‘rap’ music focusses this term.
A big well done also goes to all the entries for the school CD cover competition.
We had so many great entries, especially fab were these 2 entries from Cassidy and Ines in Cherry class. Well done girls!
Our main congrats go to our first place winner:
SOLI in Willow
2nd place: Patrik in Willow
3rd place: Niron in Maple
Featuring all the songs from the year plus many more! All funds made will go toward our ever growing array of resources, sound and lighting equipment.
Don’t forget to order your copy on school coms and sing your way through the summer!
Things are all set up and ready for tomorrow’s concert!
With some ‘help’ from Kameel and Maria the stage, sound system and instruments are ready to go…..although Maria couldn’t resist doing her best Elvis impression to finish off the afternoon.
Tomorrows programme will include items from EYFS, Willow, Aspen, Maple, and a reprise from ‘the little mermaid’
There will also be some special performance by soloists across the school.
We are looking forward to welcoming everyone who will be attending this very popular event.
A sneak peak for everyone who will be joining us tomorrow for the opening performance of ‘The Little Mermaid’
Oak and Rowan class have been working so hard to perfect the show whilst the team have been busy creating all kinds of magical things for you to see behind the scenes!
With a brand new lighting rig, some wacky costumes and Programmes brilliantly designed by year 5 and 6 we are so excited for you all to see the last production of the year!
Bring on show day!!!
Mocktails, lollies, ice creams, games, and slime…. a great way to end the week !!
Oak class used their mathematics skills to track data during the Brazil v Costa World Cup match this afternoon. They made tally charts to track data of throw-ins, free kicks, offsides, fouls and many more. Next week, they will create graphs to present their information. On a side-note, there seem to be several vocal Brazil fans in Year 6!
