Sparkles and Glitter

Our topic this term is Sparkles and Glitter. To start our topic we created some firework art. Here are just a few examples. It was great fun!



Trip on the train

Big Acorns class enjoyed a trip on the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway last week as part of their “From here to there” project.

Relaxation in Big Acorns

It’s not all work, work, work in Big Acorns class; they also get some time for some (structured!) relaxation. Here they are doing some yoga, and also playing pairs and doing puzzles together.

Getting creative in Big Acorns

This week the children have been inspired by the poetry they’ve been studying, and have made spiders’ webs.

They also made some delicious healthy flapjacks.

From here to there

The topic in Big Acorns class this term is ‘From Here to There’, focusing on the history of transport. The children made paper aeroplanes for their stunning start to the topic, and found out that The Wright Brothers first invented the flying plane.

The children are looking forward to their trip on the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway as part of their topic work. They’ve been making steam trains in preparation.

We’re going on a cow hunt…

As part of World School Milk Day our children were sent on a hunt around the school looking for cows.

Big Acorns class then had a go at “milking a cow”: they used rubber gloves filled with milk in place of actual cow udders!

Meanwhile Young Acorns made some delicious butter.


Our Key Stage 1 children had Lego as their topic last term, culminating in a very exciting trip to LEGOLAND.


Here are some of last year’s Big Acorns children enjoying making a delicious dessert.

Gardening at Brook

We are very fortunate to have lots of green space and beautiful school grounds, and our pupils have been making the most of it by doing some gardening.  We are also very lucky to have a volunteer who is coming in this term to help maintain our garden space, and we would like to express our gratitude to her.

Lunch times at Brook

Big Acorns class children have written this poem to show how much they enjoy lunch times at our school.


Lunch at Brook School,

Always happens in the hall,

Jacket potato you are great,

You are my best mate,

Sandwiches with cucumber and cheese,

Don’t forget to say please!

We love jelly,

In our belly,

We have the best dinner lady,

She makes the best gravy!
