See some of our latest learning below
On Wednesday evening, Countess Way was host to a celebration of the talents that we have at Brooklands Farm.
Those children that had been receiving specific instrument tuition from our external providers this year had been invited to show off what they had learnt in front of a packed out hall. There was some beautiful and thoughtful pieces played by all the children with some playing violin, guitar, flute and clarinet. Some children had to be brave and had to play solo pieces and others had to work as a team and be experts with timing when playing in a group.
Well done to all who performed, to their teachers who have helped them grow their talents and a huge thank you to parents who pay for these opportunities and have to listen to our practice sessions.
What an amazing first week in Year 6!
This week we have begun to read the story ‘Holes’ by Louis Sacher.
For homework this week we would like the children to sketch/create a picture of Mr Sir from the description given in the story (see picture below)
Remember to use the information and clues given in the text to create your picture – you could even label your sketch with quotes and evidence to support what you have drawn.
Don’t forget to go onto hit the button (times table games) and also mathletics over the weekend as well.
Homework just for this week is due in on Thursday 13th July as some children are on residential on the Wednesday.
Have a lovely weekend.

We all had an amazing trip to Hazard Alley, where we learnt how to stay safe in different situations. Following our Hazard Alley trip, the Safety Centre has sent out the following press release:
Wow! What a week to end Year 2! We have been really busy this week with it being Sport week, taking part in sports day, 2 trips to Hazard Alley and getting ready for Year 3! We have all really enjoyed being active and sharing learning across the school. Thank you for all the sponsorship money – we all really enjoyed completing the challenge and worked well as a team.
This week we have focused on understanding the importance of food and exercise in keeping healthy. On Thursday afternoon we got to share our learning with Year 5 by being their ‘personal trainers’. We taught them about healthy food choices and then gave them an exercise programme to follow. The Year 5’s were very shocked when they were asked to do 50 burpies!!
We also really enjoyed sharing out maths games on Friday. Everyone shared their games with people in the class and tried their best to win!
The Year 2 team have loved teaching and getting to know the Year 2’s this year and we wish them every success in Year 3!
