Another year, another Dance From The Heart. This year the theme was 'A Night At The Movies' and there was some really catchy song and dance routines to learn. Helped by the Sports Development Team and our very own young leaders from year 5, the entire school learnt this year's dance, ready for our performance. We all had great fun performing the dance during the roadshow and were lucky enough to have the Mayor of South Ribble, Councillor Titherington and his wife and consort, Mrs Titherington, join us for our performance. Boogie Storm then gave us a show which was a brilliant way to end the morning.
Mr Lee Beare, a representative of local business, McKenna’s Funeral Services, came into Northbrook recently to donate reflective safety badges, one for each of our pupils. The School Council Members were pleased to accept this kind and thoughtful gift on behalf of the whole school. Mr Johnson, Headteacher, stated, “We are always grateful for the great support that we enjoy from our community and it is particularly pleasing to receive something that will help keep all of our children even safer as the days shorten. Thank you!”
Another Award For Northbrook!!
The Mayor of South Ribble, Linda Woollard, and her husband Alistair, visited Northbrook recently to celebrate another Northbrook success. Northbrook Gardening Club, supported by Mrs Goymer and Mrs Hall, have won the Leyland in Bloom competition beating all other schools in town. Delighted that the club’s hard work has been recognised, Mrs Goymer stated,”I’m so pleased for all the children who have put in so much effort to produce such abeautiful, calm outdoor classroom.” The winning theme was “A garden fit for a queen” to coincide with the queen’s 90th birthday. Awarding the prize the Mayor remarked on how lovely it was to see such a beautiful garden being created and cared for so carefully by our pupils.

After a failed first attempt, we finally managed a successful sports day. EYFS/ KS1 took their turn in the morning, followed by KS2 in the afternoon. It was a pleasure to watch our pupils trying their best and having fun and it was also lovely to have so many family members come along to support them. After some tough competition, red team finished overall winners in KS2 sports day.
