Laurel’s Update

On Thursday 8th December, you are warmly invited to Brookfield’s first Carol Concerts at St Mary Brookfield, Dartmouth Park. Carols are ‘songs of joy’ and I hope you will join us for music and readings on the theme of ‘light’. Children in years 1 and 2 will be performing at 10am, years 3, 4, 5 and 6 at 2.15pm. Each child can have two grown ups in the audience and please let the office know if you would like to apply for any extra standing places. We hope that this will be a seasonal community event that will become a new Brookfield tradition!

Talking of traditions – thank you to the PTA for planning this year’s Winter Fair. Please read the PTA post below and I look forward to seeing you all on Saturday 3rd December 12-3pm.

Today, I’ve had the pleasure of spending time at Lauderdale House where children in years 2, 3 and 5 shared their amazing art work as part of Kids in Museums Takeover Day ​ The children ‘took over’ everything from social media to being art curators and talked about their exhibitions with the many visitors. The children shared their hard work with the community and found out from experts about working in an arts and heritage organisation. 

Katherine Ives, Director at Lauderdale House said “From designing a Tudor Feast and a new Lauderdale crest, to a crazy plant inspired by our former resident James Yates, the students have breathed new life into Lauderdale House’s 500-year history.”

Thanks to Liv, Education and Outreach Officer​ and all the staff at Lauderdale House for making this such an inspiring experience for the children.

We also have a wonderful donation of a Christmas Tree from Pines and Needles – and Brookfield families can get 10% off their tree this year with a code. See the PTA section below for details.
