We had some special visitors helping raise awareness in school of Children In Need!!
Year 5 and 6 were lucky enough to visit Leyland Library for a live show. The show entitled 'A Heart at Sea', involved the cast using puppets and live music to tell the story of whales, tiny boats, sea captains and adventure. FON kindly funded the trip and it was greatly enjoyed by both staff and children.
Over the last 5 weeks, some of our key stage 2 pupils have been attending a cheerleading after school club. They have learnt several chants and cheers during their sessions so on their final week they put on a splendid performance to show off their new moves to parent and carers. We think they did a fantastic job, take a look for yourself and I'm sure you will agree ...
Hundreds of pupils, teachers and parents from across Lancashire attended the Lancashire Evening Post Education Awards on Wednesday 26th June. We were thrilled to hear that Mrs Goymer and the school Garden project had been nominated for the Sustainable Schools Award. Mrs Goymer attended the prestigious, glittering ceremony with Ben, Alisha, Luke, Casey-Lee, Jake, Summer and Olli. It was a fabulous evening where winners were announced from 12 different categories from the primary and secondary schools across Lancashire.
We received Highly Commended in our category where we were one of the five finalists. On the night it was said we were all winners to be shortlisted in to the finals. We are very proud of the garden team’s achievements at Northbrook and will continue to make the headline news in the future as our success continues to grow. As you can see from the photographs, we were over the moon.
Key stage two had an extremely successful, and rather warm, sports day. Everyone got stuck in and participated in javelin, discus, long jump, hurdles and long distance running events, helping their colour team to score points in a bid to win the sports day winners of 2017 title. The score was very close, right up until the final event, a mammoth 23 leg relay!! Final results came in at:
1st place: Green team 482 points
2nd place: Yellow team 453 points
3rd place: Red team 427 points
4th place: Blue team 403 points
Mrs Goymer, Miss Hall and the gardening club had an end of year celebration in our award winning school garden. They had treats and fun in the sunshine in recognition of all the hard work they have put in over the year, keeping the garden looking beautiful.
Key stage two have been lucky enough to have a visit from Mr Warrel, 'The History Man', again this year. He visited each of the four classes, bringing history back to life with an array of role playing, trying on costumes and studying artefacts. Year three time travelled back to Roman times, year four to Ancient Egypt, year five to Ancient Greece and year 6 to Victorian times. Lots of learning was done but in a fun and interactive way.
