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.

Finding angles

Year 3 have been learning all about angles this week in their maths lessons. After learning that an angle is made from two straight, connected lines, we went outside to find angles in our environment. The children were very enthusiastic and they managed to find so many different angles! We have also learned that angles have names such as right angle, acute and obtuse.
Year 3 children, can you explain to an adult at home what each type of angle looks like? Can you find examples in your home?

Science experiments!

This week we have carried out several science experiments so that we could test the properties of different materials. We will use our findings to design a coat for Arctic Explorers!

We found it interesting that some of the materials seemed quite waterproof but absorbed a lot of water which made them heavy and not very practical for the Arctic weather. The thermal insulation experiment was interesting because we found it hard to ensure it was a completely fair test.

Here are some photos from our experiments.

Silverstone 10K!

On Wednesday, Brooklands Farm came third out of eighteen schools in the Silverstone 10K! It was a great event and we loved having supporters there to cheer us on. Miss Ritchie also got a medal for being the fastest female out of all the school teams! A massive well done to everyone that took part.

We are already excited about next year and would love it if we could get more parents, governors and staff involved as it is open to all of you! We will let you know more details nearer the time.

Well Being Week 2018

What a week it has been for Well Being Week! The sun has been shining and all of the year groups have been making the most of it by completing active breaks to improve well being. Children have been recording their well being and thinking about strategies to improve it. Please talk to your children about their well being and strategies at home.

 

Year 2 have had some fun this week with yoga and relay races at playtime.
