Creating a foundation classroom

As part of our Building Project, year 3 have had a fantastic time using their design and technology skills to help create a miniature classroom that adheres to our client’s needs. Children have reviewed and improved their designs and have evaluated which were the best materials to use. It’s so important to have a growth mindset and to keep improving our work so I am very proud of my children for doing so!

Here are some pictures of year 3 hard at work:

Welcome back Year 6!

Year 6 have been reunited today after the residential trip to New Barn in Dorset.  We had an absolutely fantastic time and wish we could do it all over again!

It is lovely to be all back together though and the children have enjoyed thinking about how we ‘belong’ with our Brooklands community and the ‘UN Rights of the Child’.  We are going to apply this thinking into a piece of persuasion where we advertise other people to join our Brooklands Farm family!

This afternoon, Matt, the project manager of the new building came in to tell us all about the different design stages of a new building.  We are looking forward to applying this learning later in our building project!


Year 3 visit the new school

Year 3 had a great time visiting our new Brooklands Farm Primary School on Countess Way. We enjoyed walking through our community and even had a little picnic on the new field! Year 3 asked some fantastic questions and have grown their understanding of how a building gets from the design stage to the finished stage.
