This Week at Brindishe Green

Dear Children, Families, Staff, Governors and Friends,

Well...what a week! We were delighted to welcome the parents/carers of our Year 1-6 classes into school this week to see their children’s learning, classrooms and teachers. It was fantastic to see so many children proudly showing their grown-ups around and talking about what they have learnt so far this year. One parent was overheard saying, ‘I had such a lovely time, I didn’t want to leave.’ Thank you to everyone who came.

On Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, families and staff from the Jewish community celebrated Rosh Hashanah. The festival, meaning "first of the year" or "head of the year," is a special time for reflection.  We hope that they had a wonderful time celebrating and gathering with their families and others in the community. Next week it is Yom Kippur, the holiest day in Judaism. ‘G’mar chatima tovah,’

On Thursday, some of our Year 6 children and staff showed around members of the community who have children that will be ready to start Reception next September. We haven’t been able to do this for a number of years, due to Covid, so it was very special to hear our oldest children talk about what makes their school a great place to learn.

Also on Thursday, we had some very special visitors. Two police officers, and their magnificent horses came to visit the children in Years 1-4. This was part of their schools’ outreach programme. The children asked very thoughtful questions, and the horses enjoyed munching on some delicious carrots. In addition to this, the children in Year 5 and 6 had a talk from another police officer about how they can keep themselves safe when they are out in the community without an adult, such as walking home from school alone.

We would like to send Ms Waite and Ms Cairns all the very best for their London Marathon run this Sunday. They are undertaking a huge task and although they are both enthusiastic and brilliant runners, we know that this will be a massive challenge. The school community sends you both lots of good wishes and will be cheering you on! We look forward to hearing all about it on Monday. Please see below for more information on how you can sponsor them....
