January

So much awe and wonder was happening in Acorn class last week, it was amazing to see our pupils so engaged in their learning, grasping a better understanding of the world around them. With the Winter's chilly conditions, the frost and ice brought lots of fun and exploration.

Young Voices- what an experience! Over 8000 children coming together to sing live at The o2. Such an amazing opportunity for our pupils. It may have been a long day and a late night but it was worth every minute to see the smiles on our pupils' (and staff's) faces when singing as one incredible choir.

Cherry had an amazing time baking with Mrs Green. They learnt how to use traditional scales to weigh out the different ingredients and helped mix everything together.

Freddie was able to remember his learning from Term 1 all about the Titanic and confidently described the ship and the events which led to its sinking. 

Cherry Class have been very busy! They have made bird 'biscuits' for our resident Robin, they have made ice soup, an ice sculpture and even upcycled an old Christmas tree to make it a treat for birds.

Cherry class used piping to roll some rudolf noses- they nearly got half the length of Forest School! It was great to see some amazing team work and great engineering! 

A HUGE thank you to our amazing PTFA for treating our pupils to such a fantastic experiencing having a Panto come to them, starting off the festive season with a bang. It is safe to say all pupils loved every single minute of it, laughing, dancing, singing, cheering, booing, clapping- the room was just full of joy! They even had ice creams during the interval, just like they would if they were at a real theatre. It's thanks to our PTFA and the amazing contributions of all our families that our pupils are able to have such experiences and opportunities like this. Thank you!

Oak Class got stuck into their art lesson this week, busy making their very own papier-mâché planet. We look forward to seeing the final pieces after the have had time to dry and be painted, next week!

Our pupils love their new trim trail area and have been growing in confidence using the different parts, developing different gross motor skills.

Thank you to all those who came and joined us for our Remembrance service on the playground today. A special thank you to our Worship Leaders who led us through the service, to Mr Sermon for supporting them in doing so and teaching the whole school two beautiful songs of remembrance, and finally a big thank you to Reverend Jacky for welcoming everyone and giving us our blessing. It was lovely to share in this act of remembrance together, especially whilst the sun was shining.

We will remember them!

Wow- it was so lovely to see our pupils and staff dressed in orange on Friday to raise awareness for the Azalyia Foundation and all the amazing work those working alongside them do for children with cancer. Thank you to those who bought wristbands and gave donations. A final amount of how much was raised will be announced soon.

 

Acorn and Willow class had a fantastic time today on the K&ESR steam train from Tenterden to Bodiam. An amazing experience for all, learning the history of the first 'light-railway' to be constructed.

Oak class have recently been taking their learning outside - learning doesn't always have to be done inside the classroom!

Massive congratulations to Freddie who has received his Bronze Award in reading! Well done Freddie- keep up the amazing effort.

What a wonderful privilege it was to welcome Bishop Rose into our school yesterday, alongside Reverend Chris and Reverend Jacky. She was able to meet with all of our pupils, engaging with them in their learning, visiting our Forest School and supporting our Worship Leaders in planning worship which they delivered at the end of the day. We couldn’t have been more proud with how our pupils welcomed her into our school and enthusiastically shared what we do here at Brenzett.

Willow class had a great morning learning about climate change and how to save money around the house. They all really engaged with the activities that they had to complete. Thank you to NatWest for delivering this to our pupils.

We have had a number of 'Shining Light' Awards handed out this term, given to pupils who have been exceptionally helpful in school, especially at lunchtime, and who have shown kindness to others. Thank you for being fantastic ambassadors of our school's values.

Congratulations to Dempsey who was recently awarded for his Dance and Football skills. It is always lovely when pupils share their achievements outside of school too. Well done Dempsey!

At the end of last term, Cherry Class held a VIP story screening in their classroom, which only lucky ticket holders could attend. It was a wonderful opportunity to celebrate all the hard work each pupil had put into their stories, from the initial writing to the illustrating, videoing and recording voice-overs and sound effects. What an amazing learning experience they all had!

We wish Mrs Osborne-Bean all the best in the coming weeks as she goes off on maternity leave. We can't wait to meet your new addition to the family. Good luck and best wishes from all of the Brenzett team!

To end their 'Activities Week', Year 6 took a trip the Marsh Cinema for a private showing of 'The Bad Guys'. They had a great time thanks to the staff working there who made us feel welcome and well looked after. A great way to end the term!

An amazing day celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee! The children had a great day which involved a royal treasure hunt, letter writing to the queen, royal stamp designing, a picnic lunch in the hall and then celebrations in the playground from 2pm with family- and lots of cake! Thank you to all those who came and joined us and to the PTFA and teachers for their hard work organising everything. Thanks to the PTFAs efforts and our parents’ kind and generous contributions we managed to raise just over £345 which will be going towards new play equipment for our pupils. It was truly wonderful to see everyone together and enjoying such a momentous occasion. Thank you! ❤️🤍💙

Term 5 Week 6- Shining Light Awards were given to the following pupils for the fantastic work they produced and for having a positive attitude to learning, well done everyone!

Today, Year 6 took a trip to Camber Sands. Even though the weather turned typically British, they loved having a paddle in the sea, making sandcastles, running in the dunes, going to the park and eating ice creams. A lovely day away from the classroom, exploring the local area.

Wow! What an amazing experience Young Voices was. Every single one of the pupils who attended last night loved it, albeit a very tiring day! They all sang their hearts out, thoroughly enjoyed the supporting acts and did us proud when moving in and around the O2 Arena. Well done to all those who attended and a special thanks to the staff who accompanied our pupils, keeping them safe and ensuring they had a great time, and to the parents who came to support.
