Laurel’s Update

It has been a joy to see all of the happy faces of Brookfield children returning after the half term break and I do hope that you all had restful breaks. We are excited for our second spring term of learning, and hope that you enjoy reading our new feature – Our learning week. I particularly enjoyed hearing about the release of the Brookfield Frog, which was found in the playground, and taken safely to OmVed Gardens by Year 1. It was also a pleasure to hear the Year 6 philosophy discussions which were fascinating.

Thank you to everyone that has supported The Daily Mile – this week has seen the launch of all key stage 2 children taking part, come rain or shine! Jasmine and Teal in Fern class said “The Daily Mile was really hard but at the end it was very successful. You will feel very, very tired and hot but it was achievable. It makes you fit and you don’t have to impress David by running fast. It is not a race and it does not matter if you don’t finish – you can still be proud even if you don’t finish

This week we have been talking to the children about the changes we have made to our positive behaviour policy. We have led assemblies and class discussions around the changes. The new policy has been made in consultation with staff, governors, and children. See below a table which summarises the key changes which children are now familiar with.

Our Learning Week

Welcome to our new feature – Our Learning Week! Each week, year groups 1-6 will provide a snapshot of some of the learning activities that our children have been a part of.
