New Class Blogs

Whilst we wait for our new blog addresses to be updated on the Brookhill Leys School website, please use the links below to see what your children have been up to during transition…

Logo design

We have combined our design lessons with computing and started to design logos for our own restaurants. Next week we start to design menus using Adobe software.

We also uploaded our designs to Seesaw. Afterwards we liked and commented on each other’s designs whilst talking about the impact of commenting on things online.

Commando Jo!

In our Commando Jo sessions we have been following the journey of Spartacus, a Roman warrior. We’ve been working hard on applying skills such as team work, resilience and communication into all of the activities.

This week we had to work as a team to build a defence barrier to protect our tower.

🏏 Cricket 🏏

Last week we had a visiting from the Eastwood Cricket Club who led a PE lesson. We learnt some of the rules and skills needed to play cricket. Most of us had never played cricket before but luckily Neil was very helpful and we all had a lot of fun learning about a new sport.

Hall Park Academy

We visited Hall Park Academy for our first taster day to see what Secondary school is like.

Throughout the day we had a German lesson, PE lesson and an art lesson. It was a great day and it was a good insight into what school is going to be like after Brookhill (which isn’t too far away!)

We will be visiting Hall Park again before the summer holidays for another 3 lessons.

Life education.

This week (as you may have noticed on the playground) we had a visit from the Life Education Centre. On Wednesday we had a lesson on the life trailer about being healthy; both physically and mentally. We discussed what was good for our mind and body along with what isn’t so good. The lesson was very informative and everyone shared their existing knowledge and experiences. On top of all that, it was a lot of fun!
