After School Club children develop their green fingers

Many thanks to all parents who brought in Sainsbury’s Active Kids vouchers last year.  We used some of these to purchase gardening equipment, and Miss Brown has been helping children to plant cress in After School Club.

Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre, the celebration sees hundreds of schools and organisations join together to raise awareness of online safety issues and run events and activities right across the UK.

Year 2 in the woods

Our Year 2 children went down to the woods today for Forest School.

Construction at breakfast

This week our Breakfast Club children have been busy building structures.

 

Blindfolds, tree burning and Hapa Zome

Our Year 2 children got up to a whole range of activities at Forest School this week.

They practised listening and following instructions by blindfolding themselves (using their coat hoods) and working their way around a rope course.  They also tried out Hapa Zome, which is where you beat up leaves using hammers, and use the pigment to make artwork.  Finally, they marked the definite end of Christmas by using a long rope to drag our Christmas tree to the back of the school field to burn for warmth.  Christmas is definitely over at Brook School!

 

Fun in a box!

It’s amazing how much fun children can have with the simplest of things, as evidenced by some of our children in After-School Club!

Mud faces and fire lighting

Our Year 2 children had their first Forest School session of the year this week, on site at the top of our school field.  They made some lovely mud faces and practised fire lighting.

Breakfast Club Activities

This week the children have been getting creative with Lego and interactive whiteboard games.

Christmas crafts galore at After School Club

Miss Brown has surpassed herself this month with all of the imaginative crafts on offer at After School Club!  Thank you to all of the children who came along to stick, bake, cut, glue and decorate!

Christmas Dinner!

Our Christmas dinner was delicious! Thank you Mrs Jenner!
