Laurel’s Update

Today, children and staff had so much fun celebrating World Book Day! It is always lovely to see the children dressed up as their favourite book character and sharing their enthusiasm for reading. We were really inspired by Patrick Kane who delivered an engaging assembly about his life and new book, Human 2.0. The children asked excellent questions and learned about his bionic arm and prosthetic leg. Please see the pictures below which capture the children’s enthusiasm to shake Patrick’s hand as they left the assembly. We look forward to adding his book to each class book corner on 30th March. Thanks to Dan Carrier for his creative story telling sessions with the children and to Abigail and Lillie for organising today’s activities.

We are excited to welcome Afghan children and families to the Highgate Newtown housing development. Please read this article which details the opportunity led by Georgia Gould and Camden Council: Please let me know if you have any suggestions about how we can support a positive transition for potential new Brookfield families and neighbours. We are proud to be a diverse, inclusive and supportive school, we are all richer for the range of experiences and lives of our children, families and staff.

Thanks to the PTA for our Community Breakfast this morning. Please see the PTA page below to secure your tickets for both the quiz (Thursday 9th March) and disco.
