News from Brook House 2017/18

Murder at Brook House

The Young Shakespeare Company arrived in school to stage a performance of Macbeth, which is currently being studied as part of the Year 6 literacy topic.

The actors were fully-dressed and brought the story to life, engaging and interacting with the children throughout.

Pudsey Mania

Children in Need, as always at Brook House, was a HUGE success.

This years' theme was 'Dress to Impress' and the children certainly did that with both the boys and girls looking smart in their best outfits.

Thank you to all parents who donated buns/cakes which were sold during the day and we raised over £440!

We love to read!

Children throughout Sheffield were asked to read three books and vote for their favourite.

They had to volunteer to do this in their own time and give a report on their opinion.

As a reward for taking part they each received a certificate and the days outing to the Crucible Theatre where they got to meet the Authors and Illustrators of each book.

School Council Conference

Miss Bielby took 8 of our school councillors to Westfield School recently for the Family of Schools event.

The children took part in mental team building games during the morning and picked litter during the afternoon. Our school came first collecting the most litter and we were presented with a certificate and prize.

The event was enjoyed by both children and teachers from all schools.

Brook House Champs

Well done to the Y6 boys who were crowned Year 6 Futsal Champions at the Westfield Family of School Competition.

It was a tight final with the boys beating Emmanuel 1-0.

Brook House Girls Football

Well done to our Y5/6 girls who have been taking part in Football League and Cup matches this term.

Exciting Playground Plans!

This picture shows the exciting plans we have for our outside area in the coming year.

We are committed to making our outside area an amazing play space for our children so playtimes can be as fun and enjoyable as possible. All our fund raising is now focused on this project.

We hope you can support us in the coming year to make our dream possible!

Dressed up Sponsored Walk

On Tuesday 4th October we had our annual sponsored walk which helps to raise money for our school fund.

It was wonderful to see lots of our children dressed up in fancy dress and again with magnificent support from our parents

We were very lucky with the weather too!

Spears at the Ready!

As part of their creative curriculum Topic 'Invaders, Raiders, Settlers and Traders', our Year 5 children visited the Yorkshire Museum and Danelaw Centre in York.

The children had an amazing time learning about the way the Vikings lived. They made clay oil lamps, ground flour to make bread and practised their battle skills!

It was great fun and the children had a brilliant day.

Year 3 Stone Age Day

Our Year 3 children had a visit from The History Van. This was a unique, interactive experience where the year 3 children and staff dressed and acted as prehistoric cavemen re-enacting important events from this period.

The children made weapons and clothes and designed their own jewellery.

The whole day was a great success, thoroughly enjoyed by both pupils and staff.

Roman Fun Day

Our Y4's had a 'Roman Day' to bring their Roman topic to life.

It was a wonderful day with the children and teachers dressing up as Romans and having the opportunity to handle artefacts and meet a Roman expert alongside doing a range of fun activities to reinforce their learning.
