Laurel’s Update

Happy half term to all our Brookfield children and families! The children have made excellent starts to this academic year and looked wonderful in their Halloween dressing up costumes today. Highlights of this week also included: year 2 West African drumming performances, year 1 poetry sharing, year 2 PAC Maths workshop with parents and trips to the Hampstead Heath Secret Garden for year 2 and Shaolin Temple for year 5.
Please read this important trips letter and click on the relevant links to give permission for your child(ren) to attend trips for the rest of this year and to make a donation towards these.
Please check all the dates that have already been shared for next half term. These now include two community events hosted by me and Jo (Chair of Governors) on Tuesday 8th November at 9am and 6.30pm. These will be an opportunity for us to come together as community, to reflect on our achievements, priorities and for parents to share their ideas and thoughts about the school.  While the talk will be aimed at grown-ups – children are welcome too and we will have refreshments provided by our brilliant Parent Teacher Association (PTA).
Another important date is Thursday 8th December when Brookfield children from years 1 – 6 will be performing in two Brookfield carol concerts at St Mark Brookfield Church, Dartmouth Park. Parents and carers will be invited to come and hear the children sing festive songs and present readings and poetry in an inspiring setting.
Please click on the ‘From the office’ tab below to book up After School Clubs from 31st October. We look forward to welcoming children from Reception classes to both Breakfast and After School Clubs after the half term break.
Wishing you all wonderful half term breaks and I’m already looking forward to seeing you on Monday 31st October.
