A passionate speech from a Year 5 pupil

admin on: School News

My No Expressway Talk

On Wednesday the 27th of November, I gave a talk to my school all about 'No Expressway!' I included the listeners by asking them questions such as: how many houses will be built? (1 million) How many schools and villages there are? (86 schools) and (16,000 villages)! The reason I did this was to raise awareness about the potential expressway in our local area and the potential damage it will have on our environment. I hope the school enjoyed my talk, I certainly enjoyed doing it.

Brilliant badminton

admin on: School News

    

We took two teams from Years 5&6 to the Level 1 Badminton Festival at Waddesdon School this week, finishing in 5th and 7th place. The children played lots of singles matches against opponents from Ickford and Long Crendon, and then moved on to doubles. They represented us with great flair, Lyla V (Yr5) demonstrating some good tactical power shots. Congratulations to all the team members: Alexandra J, Lyla V, Rose P, Georgia M, Thomas H, Ben N, Arlo W and Ryan W.

‘Outstanding development of the International dimension’

admin on: School News

    

Our very own Madame Tate was a guest of honour at the British Council, London, on Monday night as she accepted re-accreditation of our International School status. The award recognises outstanding commitment to embedding an international dimension through curriculum-based work, and we are delighted to hold this honour once again as the awarding body celebrates 20 years of international education.

From our provision of two modern foreign languages (French and Spanish), to our active links with schools across the globe, not to mention the annual French nativity or the trip to Normandy in Year 6, Madame Tate has been instrumental in forging relationships abroad and bringing languages to life for Brill School children. Aside from spearheading our busy International Week each year, she has also ensured that, like children before them, Year 1 recently enjoyed a full French breakfast in class. Bravo, Madame Tate!

Election news from School Council!

admin on: School News

  

We saw democracy in action at Brill last week as ten members of Year 6 pitched to be voted members of this year's School Council. In a special whole-school assembly, we listened to some inspiring speeches, full of great ideas to improve the school, with many of the candidates using film and Powerpoint presentations to reinforce their message.

Afterwards, the whole cohort - Years 1 to 6 - cast their vote by ticking the box next to their favourite speaker; the ballot papers were counted in secret. We can, however, report that all our speakers received votes, reflecting the quality of the candidates. Congratulations to our resulting Council members: Holly W, Tijmen P, Joe G, Nina B and Martha J. Now, to work!

Yr 5/6 boys win Cup match

admin on: School News

Our Yr 5/6 boys battled hard to win their second match in the Aylesbury Vale Cup competition, finishing 1-0 up at home against Oak Green yesterday. The goal came early on, within the first few minutes of the match, meaning that the boys had to sustain some valiant defending until the end. Special mention to Lucas M for keeping the opposition at bay. The team is really growing in strength and confidence - we are very proud of you all! Well done: Hugo B, Theo B, Joe G, Tijmen P, Thomas H, Lucas M, Ewan M, Ben N, Harry C.

Football round-up

admin on: School News

Disappointment away to Swanbourne in the League - despite two good goals, our Year 5/6 boys couldn't quite match the opposition's hat-trick - was off-set by an impressive performance in their opening match of the Aylesbury Vale Cup competition on 8th November. The 3-0 scoreline against Waddesdon was well-deserved following a great save by Tijmen P in goal and a hat-trick by Ewan M. Well done to all the team: Lucas M, Ewan M, Ben N, Harry C, Thomas H, Theo B, Hugo B, Joe G and Tijmen P.

On Friday 15th November, it was our girls' turn to pull on their football boots in their first match in the girls' League, also against Waddesdon. The team has really progressed and our new addition in attack, Sophie P, made a great debut; congratulations to Georgia A on her first goal, securing us a 1-1 draw. Captain Ivy H chose Georgia and Alice C as Players of the Match, noting that Alice was all over the pitch and up and down the wing! Well done, everyone: Ivy H, Georgia A, Alice C, Nina B, Holly W, Ellie E-M, Annie H, Maddie C, Sophie P and Lilly K.

Fast little feet!

We were delighted to take part in the Thame Partnership Cross-country competition, held at Southern Road Recreation Ground, Thame, on 6th November, over a long course. With lots of children finishing in the top ten in their year groups, it was a great sporting afternoon. Special mention to our individual medallists, Ella C in Year 6 (2nd), Alfie F in Year 4 (1st) and Lara C in Year 3 (1st). Barley Hill took the overall team title but thanks to so many amazing performances, Team Brill came 2nd, making Miss Butler extremely proud.
