This week we (Miss Hearn and Miss White) have been given an incredible opportunity by the British Council to go to Sri Lanka and collaborate with one of the schools there. So far, we have been educating them on the importance of recycling in order to reduce waste and achieve one of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
We have created a very positive partnership with the school, which we will maintain when we return to England so that Brooklands Farm can do some collaborative learning with schools around the world to reduce waste!
In the evenings, the teachers have been kind enough to taken us on a tour of the city to understand their culture. We have tried lots of Sri Lankan food and have seen lots of different animals, including monkeys, lizards and elephants!
We will have to tell you all about it when we are back!
Welcome to Brooklands Farm Primary School.
It is with great pleasure that we welcome you at our new and expanding school. The first building on the block of the Brooklands community development serving Broughton Gate and Brooklands.
Our school building is predominantly glass emphasising our ambition to be connected to the world around us. We believe in transparency and accountability and again the ability to look inside our school from every direction emphasises our leadership ambition for excellence. Our school believes in ‘anytime’, ‘anywhere’ ‘everyone’ learning, we have created spaces to learn in our school that recognises learning in groups, as an individual or within a whole class setting.
As we begin our learning journey we have no idea who will come to learn with us!! This is extremely exciting and we will leave space to accommodate and weave in all talents and skills. For this reason our vision statement is – Weaving a Learning Journey.
We believe we will achieve excellence during that learning journey if we –
OPEN – hearts, minds, eyes, ears and dialogue.
GROW – talents, mindsets, skills, knowledge, relationships.
BELIEVE – I can…., we can ………….. and you can…………..
We are all leaders of learning on this journey and please come and join us to share your learning as we will only have a great school if we all run in the same direction.
