World Book Day Brings Out the Creativity at Brookhill

I am so impressed with the imaginative and detailed World Book Day hats we had in school today. Thankyou to all the children and their families for the time and effort you have put in.

It was so nice to hear the conversations that children had shared with their adults whilst making the hats and discussing their favourite books.

Thankyou for your ongoing support.


Orangutan Class and Mr Fowkes receive a letter from the Queen!

Mr Fowkes helped all the children in school to plant trees for the Queens Canopy. He sent photos and letters telling Queen Elizabeth what Brookhill Leys had done to help with this project.

Today we received a very special letter back from Buckingham Palace! Even the envelope said Buckingham Palace on it.

We feel so very pleased to receive a royal letter.

I wonder who we can write to next …

A Very Special Visitor Turns 100

Kathleen’s came to visit us. She has recently turned 100 and is a much loved resident in one of our local rest homes.

Kathleen used to work at Brookhill Leys Primary School as a teacher. Her family left photos with us from when she worked here and we will share those with you.

Mrs Charlesworth played the piano for us and we sang Happy Birthday to Kathleen and Heidi gave her flowers.

According to Kathleen’s relatives the Queen of England no longer sends a telegram to people who are 100. “What is a telegram?” A child rightly asked. Instead she sent a lovely birthday card.

What a privilege to share.
