This year we celebrated World Book Day during Author week. Throughout Author week we took part in a range of activities to inspire us and broaden our knowledge of books and authors.
Some of these activities included: Read to Achieve Magic Show, Movie Night,Parents reading session and bring pets into
school during World Wildlife Day(we looked at animal theme books on this day.) We were also given Headteacher homework
listing authors from A -Z. Our knowledge was put to the test in a whole school quiz called Author Blockbusters!
For World Book Day we dressed up as our favourite animal characters! Take a look at how we celebrated the week.
We have recently had Safety Week at Brookhouse Primary School. The week started with an assembly for all school children led by Chris Dunn from the NSPCC. The message which he put across was 'Speak out, stay safe'. Pupils from Years 5 and 6 combined to take part in an NSPCC workshop.
February 11th was Safer Internet Day 2020. The Year 5 pupils led a very informative assembly on Online Identity, reinforcing the important safety message of not sharing personal information online and encouraging pupils to leave a positive digital footprint.
Finally, Brookhouse welcomed Leanne Romney back to the school. Leanne works for the Local Authority and she also spoke to school pupils about staying safe on the internet. In addition, Years 5 and 6 engaged well with a workshop session delivered by Leanne.
Safety of all of our pupils is of the utmost importance to us here at Brookhouse and Safety Week was the perfect opportunity to reinforce 'Keeping Safe'.
This year at Brookhouse Primary School, we have introduced a new enhancement to excite and enrich our children's learning
of music. Alongside our music lessons and wider opportunities, we have given parents and children the opportunity to be part of Rock Steady Music service. All year groups, including parents attended a Rock Steady workshop to see what the service was all about. Our trained music teacher Mike has been in school to create and produce our very own Rock band.
At the end of the term, the children performed in a live concert in school. Parents and children attended the concert, we at Brookhouse are so proud of their efforts and talent!
A big well done!
Some children from year 5 and 6 were given the opportunity to go and watch Blackburn Rovers play against Brentford FC.
The children were asked to wave the flags at half time and they also met 'Roar the Lion' the Blackburn Rovers mascot.They
did the school proud with their fantastic support and behaviour.
Brookhouse Primary School had a wonderful day raising money for Children in Need.
The children and staff dressed in spots and were delighted to meet the Mayor and Mayoress during assembly.
Following assembly, parents were treated to a coffee and cake morning with the Mayor and Mayoress in attendance.
There was also a cake sale at playtime for the children.
The school raised over £500 for the charity.
Take a look at the photos of the day.
For Harvest, Brookhouse generously donated food for the local Food Bank. In total the donation of food weighed in at 165.35kg and this will provide 394 meals for people in crisis in Blackburn and Darwen.
Thank you to all our families for all their generosity!
