SCHOOL NEWS

Thank you to the parents, carers and staff who supported World Book Day 2019! The children enjoyed inspirational visitors throughout the day, learnt about publishing from Mary Mount  in a special assembly, were joined by parents and carers for a reading session, received new books at the popular book fair and some even returned to school in their pyjamas for hot chocolate and bedtime stories with staff. Thank you to Katie for organising such a successful day and we are excited to welcome further visiting poets and story tellers over the coming weeks. Next week is our Spring assessment week where teachers from Nursery – Y5 will reflect on how each child is progressing, particularly in their reading, writing and maths. For children in years 1-5 this will include age appropriate assessments taken in the classroom or in small groups. We look forward to seeing what each child can achieve and will make every effort for this to be a positive celebration of their learning and not stressful. Year 6 have their assessment week W/C 25th March. Please get in touch with your child’s class teacher or phase leader if you have any questions.

   

Spring Slam

As we reach the final round of the Spring Slam next week, it is more important than ever that the children are practicing their timestables at home! As it currently stands, Brookfield is just within the top 12 schools in Camden and will make it to the final round, however all can change if we do not keep up the great work with this last round! A special mention goes to Year 4 who have ranked 5th in Camden, and Year 6 who have ranked 6th in Camden – congratulations!

Year 2 Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment

On Tuesday, Year 2 were lucky enough to travel to central London and watch a concert held by the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment. We were fortunate enough to hear Mozart’s 29th Symphony and learn about the different different instruments which helped to create the music. We also joined in by singing a song about Mozart to the tune of ‘Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star’.

SPORTS NEWS

Tomorrow, Saturday 9th March our y6 dance squad finally get to perform at the Camden Youth Dance Festival being held at The Place. Please can all performers be there for 12.45pm so we can prepare for our technical rehearsal which is at 1.15pm. Also, pack lots of food/ water for the day as the actual show will start at 7pmThe squad have been asked to wear black bottoms and a neutral (plain as possible) top; white, grey or cream.

On the back of this, Damien will be holding a dance class this Monday 11th March from 3.30pm – 4.30pm in the top hall for KS2 children. Those who would like to attend can turn up and line up with me in the KS2 play ground after school. This is free of charge. We hope to see as many of you as possible!

Girls from y3/4 took part in a football festival this week learning key skills and then got to put them in to practice against other schools in friendly matches.

Y3 swimming has started really well. The children have been super and slowly we are identifying children abilities and placing them in to relevant groups. Thank you to all the parents who are helping with the walk to and from the pool.

I will be running this Sunday in the Vitality half marathon. I am supporting the Felix foundation and am touched by all the generous donations. There is still time to support my cause and give what you can. My foot has not healed in time but I am determined to complete the race!

I constantly work to control my thoughts and my emotions. I’ve seen this play out time and time again in my life; when emotion goes up, intelligence goes down. How many of us can relate to this… – Wise old Haseeb h.khan@brookfield.camden.sch.uk
