An Inspirational Assembly

We were lucky enough to have an interesting and interactive assembly recently, led by published author,Tom Palmer, and Leyland Library. Tom really inspired everyone to keep reading and gave out some great tips for future story writing. As well as telling us a bit about him, he shared the background to some of his books, did a mini quiz followed by a penalty shoot out and to round it all off we got to ask him all sorts of questions, which he willingly answered. Thanks to Tom for giving us a real boost and reminding us of all the positives to reading and writing!

Summer Fair

We owe a huge thank you to the Friends of Northbrook (FON) for organising a brilliantly successful Summer Fair on 8th July. Not only was over £1,000+ raised for school fund, to be spent directly for the benefit of all of our pupils, but also for providing such a pleasant social event that everyone was able to enjoy. It was really pleasing to see such great support from FON and school staff and pupils and their families too.

History Man

We were fortunate enough to have another visit from the 'History Man', Anthony Worral last week. He shared a fountain of knowledge about the Romans, Ancient Egyptians, Ancient Greeks and Britain in the 1950's and brought along some wonderful artefacts and clothing for us to explore. This was a really exciting enrichment day to our already interesting and varied topic work.

World Book Day 2016

We all had a fabulous time on World Book Day, dressed as our favourite book characters. It was wonderful to see such a lot of thought and effort had gone into many of the costumes and both children and staff enjoyed the day, some people totally taking on their character's persona!! Here is just a glimpse of our day...

Dance from the Heart 2016

Once again, Northbrook took part in the Dance from the Heart, this year's theme being the olympics. A group of year 5 children went to Worden Academy back in February to learn the dance, they then came back to school and helped the rest of KS2 learn it too. On Tuesday 13th June, several of the South Ribble Sports Partnership team, the Mayor and other special guests came to Northbrook to watch our performance of the dance. The children did an AMAZING performance and then got to watch another spectacular performance by two highly skilled bicycle stunt riders. It was an enjoyable morning for all.
