Children in Need 2017

Thank you to everyone who arrived at school today in spots and/or Children in Need related clothes, and who donated to the cause.  This money will be paid to Children in Need next Tuesday, once all monies have been received and counted.

We also had some special guests today: a dancing group from Homewood School came to visit as part of their Dance Dash to raise funds for Children in Need.


We had our second open day for potential Year R parents this week, and had a Forest School demonstration at the top of our school field.  The children were excited to learn how to make charcoal, and then used it to make signs.

Tree models at Breakfast Club

Breakfast Club is not just about breakfast!  Mrs Brown provides a range of activities for children to keep them occupied before school officially starts for the day.  

This term the children have been making trees.  They used clay to model them, then painted them when dry.  For the leaves, they did paint marbling then cut out leaf shapes to stick on and around their trees.

Hall displays

We’re looking forward to our open afternoons, showing around potential Year R children and their parents. Work is on display in the hall, Forest School activities are up and running, and there’s even cake from Caterlink to try!

Harvest Festival

Thank you very much for all of the generous donations for this year’s Harvest Festival. These will be donated to Porchlight.

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.

World School Milk Day

Yet again the children and parents of Brook School have surpassed our expectations and amazed us with the imaginative costumes for World School Milk Day! We have cows, farmers, teeth, milk bottles and even cheese in school today! Thank you so much for all of the time and effort that has gone into creating these costumes.

Open afternoons

We are very proud of our school, and prospective children and families are always welcome to contact us to arrange visits.  Additionally we’re holding two open afternoons aimed at families with children due to start school in September 2018.  These will be held from 1.30-3.15pm on Wednesday 18th October and Wednesday 1st November. 

During the open afternoons you will be given a guided tour of the school by our keen Year 6 pupils, will have the opportunity to meet the Headteacher and other staff, and be given information on everything that Brook School has to offer, such as our Forest School activities (both on and off site), Breakfast Club and After-School Club.

Parents/families are welcome to just turn up, or please contact us if you would like further information.

Plasticine modelling in Breakfast Club

Mrs Brown runs Breakfast Club every morning from 7.45am.  In addition to providing children with breakfast, she organises a range of activities to keep them busy. This week they used Plasticine to make models, and also made Domino tracks.
