This term year two are trial ‘running’ the daily mile challenge. Children will go outside and test themselves to run a mile (6 full laps of the playground), no matter the weather condition, shoe choice or hairstyle for that day all children take part. It is a challenge amongst themselves and it is no competition. Children (and teachers) are able to tally up how many miles they run in a week, with the idea that they will try and beat their own score the following week. Brooklands are hoping to make this a whole school challenge to help all children and staff get fitter and healthier for the New Year.                                                                    

This term Years 4 and 5 have taken part in a Greenwich schools cross country competition at Long lane. Both classes did exceptionally well with Year 4 coming first overall, with Year 5 boys coming 4th, though Benjamin Tranter came in 2nd. Year 5 girls came 1st with Rojda coming 2nd. Overall out of nine schools Year 5 came 3rd.

                                        
                  

This term we also have the FA working with year one and Year 3 classes one hour a week. Teachers will be getting professional development observing these high quality teaching sessions. They will also be holding a girl’s only lunchtime club to encourage the girls at Brooklands to participate in sports daily in the playground.

Miss Bonner will be working with some year 6 children to become qualified ‘Sports leaders’ by the end of the term. These children will be trained in how to lead sports games and how to encourage healthy competition and leadership skills at lunchtimes to all children.

We have some exciting new after schools clubs this term such as chill out yoga, karate and roller blading!
