Welcome to Brooklands Farm Primary School

Welcome to Brooklands Farm Primary School.
….
It is with great pleasure that we welcome you at our new and expanding school. The first building on the block of the Brooklands community development serving Broughton Gate and Brooklands.
Our school building is predominantly glass emphasising our ambition to be connected to the world around us.  We believe in transparency and accountability and again the ability to look inside our school from every direction emphasises our leadership ambition for excellence.  Our school believes in ‘anytime’, ‘anywhere’ ‘everyone’ learning, we have created spaces to learn in our school that recognises learning in groups, as an individual or within a whole class setting.
As we begin our learning journey we have no idea who will come to learn with us!!  This is extremely exciting and we will leave space to accommodate and weave in all talents and skills.  For this reason our vision statement is – Weaving a Learning Journey.
We believe we will achieve excellence during that learning journey if we –
OPEN – hearts, minds, eyes, ears and dialogue.
GROW – talents, mindsets, skills, knowledge, relationships.
BELIEVE – I can…., we can ………….. and you can…………..
We are all leaders of learning on this journey and please come and join us to share your learning as we will only have a great school if we all run in the same direction.

Amazing Ignite in Year 6

We had an incredible Ignite day on Wednesday in Year 6. We traveled back to WW2 and the time of the codebreakers. We got to meet Neville Chamberlain, experience what it was like to keep a secret as a code breaker; crack some codes in an interview for Bletchley Park; research and discuss rationing and be a member of the war cabinet discussing where Station X should be placed in the UK! Have a look at our photos to see what an amazing day we had.
 

 

Year 4 Ignite – Monday 11th September

On Monday 11th September, to Ignite our project ‘Why do we tell stories?’,  we are planning an exciting event for the children. James Nicol, author of ‘The Apprentice Witch’ has agreed to visit the school to talk to the children about his books.

James is an innovative author and speaker and we are delighted to have secured a visit by him. He will be talking to the children to provide inspiration for their own writing and also enthusing them about reading. This will support the literacy work that we do in school and we hope it will prove a stimulating experience for the children.

We will be reading ‘The Apprentice Witch’ before and after James’ visit however you may want to research the author at home.

Countess Way children will be walking from Countess Way to Fen Street in the morning and returning to Countess Way for the usual pick up time. You should drop your child off at Countess Way at normal time, and collect your child at Countess Way at normal time. If your child is hot dinners on Monday, we have arranged for them to have their lunch at Fen Street. If your child is packed lunch, they should bring packed lunch as normal.

Have a lovely weekend!

Year 5 Titanic Ignite

On Wednesday Year 5 had our Titanic Ignite day. We all dressed up as first, second and third class passengers and were given a real person from Titanic so that we had a character to act as throughout the day. We really enjoyed having a Titanic style dinner in the afternoon with different food and entertainment depending on our class. While we were having our dinner, there was a sudden unexpected announcement that we had crashed into an iceberg!! We tried to evacuate quickly but found different obstacles in our way depending on our class and our gender! Luckily we all survived the iceberg crash but it helped us imagine how shocking and scary it would have been if we had been on the actual Titanic.
