Chinese New Year Activity Day

Last Friday all the children and adults at Brook celebrated Chinese New Year. Each class took part in a carousel of different activities including painting Chinese dragons and making lucky money envelopes, Chinese fans and dragon shadow puppets. When visiting Little Acorns class, children read the traditional Chinese tale of “The Dragon Painter” and created their own dragons using pencils, water colours, pastels and collage materials. 

Brook School General Election

As the country goes to the polls, Year 6 children led an in-school general election of our very own.  The Year 6 children formed their own parties, created a set of policies for their manifestos, and even found time to make matching rosettes!

After votes were counted, with 32% the winning candidate was Lauren for the Progress Party, “the party that will move the country forward”, with their policies of helping troubled families turn their lives around, making sure girls in developing countries get a good education, and providing computer coding programs for people to learn about computers.  

Well done to all the candidates for getting their points across so clearly without any mention of Brexit!  Maybe the adult politicians could learn a thing or two!
