Day 3 - International Day 2019 (including a visit by 10 local school leaders!)

admin on: School News

  

It turns out, there was a didgeridoo after all. Mr Birt, was that you practising last night?

During Day 3 of International Week, we were also visited by 10 local Head Teachers who had come to join in some of the fun! Our visitors were VERY impressed by what they saw and they all wished they could spend more time with us. Shown around school by our Year 6 tour guides during the morning, the Head Teachers were hugely positive about all the learning and activities they saw and the conversations they had with our children in all classes. We let them have a look at our Brilliant Brainwaves and Wicked Word books too, while they were here. They thought the books and the content were BRILLIANT. It was lovely to be able to hear the children talk proudly about our school and to be so confident with our invited guests.

We now only have one more day to get ready for INTERNATIONAL DAY 2019! Time for an early night!

You may have noticed we had our gate into the car park closed this morning. Three children from Year 1 are sharing the reasons why in the small video clip at the top of the page.

SEN Information Evening & Film Night

admin on: School News

Thursday 28th February 2019

3.30pm and 5.20pm, Brill Schoo.l

Dyslexia? Dyscalculia? ASD? Do you have anyone you know who has any kind of additional need? How does school support children who have additional needs? How does external support work within Buckinghamshire? Are you interested in finding out more for yourself or a friend or a family member? If you answered yes to any of these questions or if you are just interested, do please come along to these information sessions.

Our dynamic and creative school councillors are currently planning two film nights for our children to happen simultaneously alongside our evening information sessions. We hope this will enable as many of you as possible to attend. Details will soon follow once the councillors have designed and created their adverts and their plan for the film nights.

SEN and additional needs can be very sensitive topics and do be assured there will be no pressure to share any personal information. The aim of the evening is to recognise that the more we learn from each other and the more we work together, the better the support will be for our children who have additional needs. You are warmly welcomed to come and hear about our ethos around SEN support in school, some of the strategies we use and some of the positive impact that has happened when we work together for the best for our children.

If you have any questions ahead of time, do contact the school office on office@brillschool.org.uk We would love to see as many of you there as possible so that we can learn to support one another and, most importantly, our children.

Year 4 or a Roman Banquet......or is it an Invasion?

admin on: School News

      

      

    

      

    

Year 4 became Romans for the day on Wednesday this week. They made Roman shields and victor's wreaths. For their Roman banquet they wrote their own Roman menus before trying out some food. This was followed by some marching around the play ground and practising of their battle formations. Miss Webb led the troops for the day and was very proud of her Roman army. Everyone's costume looked amazing. Well done, Year 4!

Some of the Many Reasons we Love Forest School!

admin on: School News

    

    

Half of Year 2 had a morning filled with problem solving last week in the forest with Mrs Keeping. One of the smaller groups were so keen to get the bucket to travel down the rope, they just kept trying new ideas until they made it work. There was also the chance to create their own challenges and even to be artistic in several ways. Was any of it it easy? No! Did all the tasks take several attempts? Yes! Did some mud get spilt along the way? Absolutely! Did the children work together to find a solution? They most definitely did!

New Books!

admin on: School News

Thank you to all parents that supported our Book Fair back in November.  The way the Fair works is that Travelling Books give us a percentage of the total sales as credit to spend on books for the School.  This is just a selection of the new books that we've bought for the library with our credits!  Thank you!

Website Highlight - Sports Focus

admin on: School News

There's so much to explore on our website that we have decided to occasionally pick out a particular highlight. 

Have you seen our Sports page?

http://www.brill.bucks.sch.uk/home/why-brill/wrap-around-care/sport-and-pe

As you will all be aware, we have an amazing champion for sport at our school in Miss Butler. Her energy and enthusiasm for creating as many opportunities as possible for our children is simply outstanding. 

On this snow day, why not be inspired as you read about some of what we do in sport in school and why we do it? The eagle-eyed amongst you will no doubt notice the references to the importance of a Growth Mindset! (Yes, I'll include reference to it as often as possible - it's important!) At the bottom of the sports page, for any who might not yet have noticed the selection policies, do have a look. Miss Butler created these several months ago to make clear how we select children for clubs, festivals, tournaments and squads. I sat with Miss Butler yesterday as we were in the final stages of sorting clubs for next half term and was staggered at how many children have already been included in tournaments and festivals this academic year. Astonishing!

We will continue to strive to do our best. We will continue to teach resilience. We will continue to show excellent attitude in sports. We will continue to be very proud of all of our children in their engagement and approach to the challenges of sport. Let's Do This Team Brill!

It's a musical day today!

admin on: School News

    

Many musical sounds have been heard around and about school today. Monday is officially our most active day in terms of music. We've had tuneful violin action, melodious flute playing, musical piano playing, string instruments being represented by a few guitarists and their guitars, the sounds of happy singing and some djembe drum action in the music room. What a musical bunch we are!

For those of you who haven't yet heard the news, we have a performance slot each Friday, as children come into the hall for our star of the week assembly. The performances so far have been amazing. The slots can be for instrumental playing, singing or dance. The audience is always very appreciative. Do encourage your child to sign up for next half term. Be brave! Have a go!
