The Brookfield Blog is a new venture to keep the parents and carers of our children in the loop with learning and achievement. It is also a way to celebrate our students’ work and for them to take pride in the outcomes they achieve.
We will be giving you an inside look into what’s happening in the classroom so you can share in the excitement and follow your child on their learning journey.
Our blog is a great way to keep you informed and to see what your child thinks of their learning. Each class will be responsible for completing a week’s worth of blog posts throughout the year. Featured classes will be listed in the newsletter so you’ll know when to check it out.
You will get to see highlights of pictures, pieces of work, children’s writing and their own opinions.
