Yr 1 Trip to College Lake

admin on: BRILL SCHOOL NEWS

Last week Year 1 and their teddies went to the beautiful College Lake to look for the mischievous Edward Bear. During their search for him, Year 1 awakened their senses in the herb  and flower gardens, as well as attending an exciting nature concert.  Unbeknown to them the cheeky Edward Bear had taken their teddies and packed lunches to a teddy bear’s picnic! We eventually found them and enjoyed munching our lunches in the great outdoors. In the afternoon we enjoyed learning about what living things need to survive through a selection of fun games.  A huge thank you to Miss Turner, Miss Parke and Mrs Birmingham for all your amazing help.   Lots of learning, smiles and sunshine made for a memorable, lovely trip.

Visit by Leysa Henderson, Author of ‘Lost Lives’

admin on: BRILL SCHOOL NEWS

This week, the author (Leysa Anderson) of ‘Lost Lives’ visited our school and talked to KS2 about the conservation of rainforest animals and the impact of global warming.

Scarlett said: 'It's changed my life- I'm now not eating palm oil.'

Leah and Izzy thought the videos were 'moving' and they loved learning about new places and animals.

Many children have been inspired to reduce waste and re-use what they can. 

Remember: everything that we do has an impact on the environment- what can we do to make sure that it's a positive one?

Yr 6 Mixed Tag Rugby Level 2 Festival

admin on: BRILL SCHOOL NEWS

We took a team of 8 children to Buckingham School to play in a tag rugby festival.  We made a start by winning all of our pool games confidently, putting us through to the finals round where we played Bourton Meadow School.  This was a very tense final, with unbelievable determination to win from both sides.  We drew the final match meaning we had to play a ‘golden try’, which we triumphantly won.  Brill School came 1st overall and have made it through to the finals at Aylesbury Rugby Club next week.  We are so proud of all the children involved, their amazing standard of play and attitude shown throughout the festival.  We are all very excited for next week! Congratulations Milla CP, Fergus G, Tilly J, Freddie L, Nat M, William P, Harry S and Lula S.

Yr 6 American Flag Football Festival

admin on: BRILL SCHOOL NEWS

Ten children from Yr 6 spent the day on Thursday learning the rudiments of American Flag Football, under the expert eye of specialist coaches at the Mandeville School in Aylesbury.  After a morning spent on skills and drills, learning how to throw and catch the ball ‘US-style’ and mastering basic rules of the game, the children took part in some fast-paced, competitive matches against other schools during the afternoon.  All of the children performed with enthusiasm, winning three out of four matches, and showed great team spirit.  Well done Esme B, Samantha D, Eavie F, Fergus G, Freddie H, Tilly J, Dan N, William P, Raul Q and Lula S.
