Brooklands Assembly is back!

Did you miss us? We're back with our first online assembly of the new school year for pupils, parents and friends of Brooklands. Sit back, relax and enjoy!

                          *Mellow Yellow Day*

Thursday 24th September 2020


On Thursday we will be taking part in our second 'Mellow Yellow Day' in school. 


This is a day where we focus upon positive mental health, as we celebrate all that we can do and all that we are thankful for, as well as practicing relaxation techniques, mindfulness, art and activities surrounding well-being. 


This month has been a gentle return back into school, where our children's well-being has been central to everything we do. We felt that this would be a lovely way to celebrate our return to school, from within our own classes, before we finish for a long weekend, with an Exceptional Closure on Friday 25th September.


There is no cost for this day, and unfortunately due to restrictions, we cannot ask the children to dress-up this year, however, if your child would like to wear a yellow accessory on Thursday, such as sunglasses, a hairband or yellow socks, they'd be so welcome to!!


We want to take this opportunity to thank you so much for helping your child settle back into school so well, and for all of the support you have shown us too. Your support means everything, as we work together for the best of every child in Brooklands.


This 'Mellow Yellow Day' we want to say thank you to you, and to all of our children for the most wonderful, positive return back to school. 


We are so thankful for each and very one of you!

Julia Donaldson and Axel Sheffler's Story Adaptations to help Children Understand Corona Virus


Children's Author Julia Donaldson and Illustrator Axel Sheffler are adapting their famous stories to help children make sense of the Corona Virus and the Stay at Home guidance that we are all following.


Julia Donaldson is posting updates and videos of her reading from her books on her Face Book Page each week too. Here is a link to articles and examples of their adapted texts, which are really reassuring for the children to read, as the message is coming from the characters they are already so familiar with...
