SKIP 2B FIT at Brooklands Farm

Wow! What an amazing and inspirational couple of days working in partnership with SKIP 2B FIT.

All children in our school showed amazing resilience and growth mindset towards improving their own personal bests. We all really enjoyed the motivational competitions between staff and children. Mr Rickett and Mathias are currently our skipping champions – we are looking forward to see if anyone can beat their scores in the future.

 

International Women’s Day in Year 6

We had an amazing day yesterday celebrating International Women’s Day, learning about equality around the world. We have started to create posters and symbols (inspired by the book ‘Malala’s Magic Pencil’) to represent what we want in our own futures.
Learning about the history of equality has encouraged us to have discussions about what we want our world to be like and how we can inspire everyone to be be treated as equals.
We are hoping to finish our posters in the next couple of weeks and want to continue this project looking at different inspirational people throughout the year.
