A Musical Visit - The New Mozart Orchestra

admin on: School News

      

A huge thank you to the members of the New Mozart Orchestra who came and visited us in school today. We were all delighted by the story of Hansel and Gretel and the musical accompaniment. Being introduced to all the different instruments in the orchestra was inspirational and the children enjoyed hearing a little more about each family of instruments. 

For the majority of our children at Brill, this was the first time they had seen an orchestra playing live, which was really exciting and enlightening. "I really liked being able to see all the instruments playing together!" (Arthur)

Run, Brill, run!

admin on: School News

    

Wet weather couldn’t dampen the spirits of our KS2 distance runners as they took on Long Crendon and Haddenham schools at cross-country last week. Mr Dickson brought out a Brill team in full strength: 33 runners from Years 3, 4, 5 & 6 competed in six races with many of our children placed in the top three.

Special mention to the winners in their categories: Lara C (Yr 3), George H (Yr 3), Alfie F (Yr 4) and Lyla V (Yr 5).

Our hosts, Long Crendon School, ensured it was a well-organised occasion and we were delighted that Brill carried home the trophy for overall team performance. Congratulations to all our cross-country champions!

Maths Challenge Day!

admin on: School News

   

Stop the clock! Year 6 sent a team of four talented mathematicians to Magdalen College School in Oxford for the afternoon on Tuesday 1st October, ready to pit their wits against a series of eleven challenges devised by staff and sixth formers at the school. These included Triangular Solitaire, Pentomino and the Tangram Plane puzzle; a large stop clock gave participants just four minutes to complete each station, ensuring some quick mental arithmetic.

Claudia B said, “I enjoyed working as a team to solve the problems,” while teammate Nina B liked the challenge of the timed element. The group performed very well, finishing all bar two of the problems within the allotted time. Well done Tijmen P, Nina B, Alice C and Claudia B.

Jeans for Genes

admin on: School News

Our school uniform was slightly adapted today as we raised funds for a very worthwhile charity. Jeans for Genes helps some of the most vulnerable children in the UK. We want to help children who have to cope with genetic disorders and this was one way we felt we could. The total raised was £223.86

Thank you to everyone for your support.

Opportunities to Perform Musically

admin on: School News

Each week, we have slots at the beginning and end of Collective Worship for our children to perform either musically or through the medium of interpretive dance. Callum was our first performance this week and the whole school was delighted with his electric guitar playing. Thank you, Callum, and well done!

We love Forest School!

admin on: School News

Forest School began this September with Year 3 on a beautiful misty morning. The children were well prepared and excited. They ran down the hill, stopping at trees on the way and picking up different seeds.

The children were observant as we explored the diversity of life in our Forest School, which we will compare to the Rainforest (their topic this term).  We found a mouse hole, a bone and all sorts of minibeasts. Jaime taught us all the difference between a grasshopper and a cricket. Does anybody know what this caterpillar will turn into?

Two of the children were new to Brill school and it was good to see them finding special pieces of wood, beginning to talk imaginatively and making a house to live in.

Music Rocks!

admin on: School News

  

We have an exciting opportunity to share for all children in Years 3-6. XYZ Music have been into school today and have inspired our children during an assembly where they played electric guitar, drums and bass guitar. The children loved the assembly and much head bobbing was spotted!

XYZ Music are going to be offering electric guitar lessons and drum lessons in school during this academic year. If your child is interested in taking up this opportunity, please contact the office by 12.9.19 on office@brillschool.org.uk

In addition to the lessons provided by XYZ Music, we also facilitate lessons provided by Aylesbury Music Service on different musical instruments. If you are interested in any of these opportunities, do please contact the office and the appropriate paperwork/links will be sent to you either in letter or via email.

Brill Staff became Artists for their Inset Day!

admin on: School News

We had a visit from a local Artist on Monday 2nd September. He delivered a workshop with a focus on the teaching and delivery of Art to children across the school.

We spent the morning taking part in an abstract painting workshop. It took many of us out of our comfort zones and tested our Growth Mindset to the max!

It was a fantastic start to the year, inspiring and enthusing us all to look at the planning and delivery of our broader curriculum (in particular Art) with innovative, rich and vibrant eyes.

It also demonstrated what a fantastic and creative team of staff we have here at Brill.

I am very excited to be back and a part of it.
