All the write moves

Dandelion class have enjoyed ‘The Minpins’ by Roald Dahl so much this half term that we’ve decided to write our own adventure book based on the story. This week we used our story maps to write about our own adventures. We journeyed into a magical land, met magical creatures and defeated a monster. Phew! What a busy week!

We can’t wait to publish our own book next week.


Cross Country

Well done to all the children who ran last week in the competition! It was a cold, wet  morning and we came third out of 27 schools! Around 1,700 children took part and each Brookfield child tried their very best! #soproud

Wood you believe the week Poppy class have had?

This half term Poppy have been lucky to have wood work lessons with Ricky at Highgate Newtown Community Centre.

The children are working with Ricky to create their own wooden animals. It has been so amazing  to be given the opportunity to try a range of different wood work techniques. This week we were perfecting our saw and sand papering skills. We also got to use the drill for the first time which was so fun!

We can’t wait to show you our finished products!

Apple Day

We had an amazing day in Early Years celebrating Apple Day. Children brought in local apples and worked together to prepare them for pressing. It was so exciting tasting the apple juice that we had made by ourselves using local produce.


Exploring Changes

Conker class children did an experiment using vinegar, food colouring and baking soda. Using fine motor skills they moved the ingredients from pot to pot with pipettes. They observed the changes and loved seeing how they could make the powder expand.  What science experiments have you tried at home?IMG_6748[1]IMG_6749[1]IMG_6751[1]

Into the woods!

Year 2 are so lucky to be the first classes to get to participate in Forest School sessions, they are so much fun!

Poppy class have loved having the opportunity to explore the woods and use our senses to see how many  things we could find. It was so exciting when we found newts and friends with a Robin who lives nearby! We also decided to make our own instruments using things we found in the woods. We formed a band called ‘ The Breakfast Club’ watch out for our first single ‘Eggs!’

It has been great to get the opportunity to learn outdoors and we can’t wait to see what Paula and Pete have planned for us next!

Where Coding and Math Meet

2B has worked with Beebots and coding this year in their computing lessons, learning how to code the Beebots to go to specific places. With Beebots children used arrows only, so they developed these skills in their most recent Maths lesson where they consolidated their understanding of directional language (including clock-wise, counter-clockwise, left, right and others). They showed great skill in following written code and then took the challenge to write their own code for their friends to follow. IMG_2753

KS1 Sports Day

Not to be out done by the Reception Sports day, KS1 spent a beautiful morning last week at Hampstead Heath exercising and enjoying the sun. The children showed great skill (and humour!) at the races, balancing eggs, bouncing on spacehoppers and throwling javelins. Don’t worry, they were foam.

Once again competition was fierce with the parents race, but the teachers did come a close second.

After the race, 2b also took the challenge to climb to the top of Parliament Hill. It was a great day for all. Thanks so much to all the parents and carers to who came to support your children!


Reception Sport Days

We are so lucky to have the amazing Heath at our doorstep and this July we have made great use of this amazing space! Reception had its Sports day there, complete with stiff competition in the parent race. The weather was perfect and the children had a fantastic time.
