Standing Challenge for Science Club

The science club were set the challenge of building a structure containing three cubes - from something malleable, and something rigid - namely marshmallows and spaghetti! It turned out to be much harder than it looks!

Still, eventually two prizes were awarded - one for the team that successfully built the tower, and another for some brilliant team-work in the attempt.

It's All About Rights

We are on our way to being an officially Rights Respecting School.

Evidence has been sent off showing how respect for Children's Rights has been applied all across the school, and we are expecting Recognition soon.

The Sycamore and Banyan Classes Extravaganza reminded us of the key rights of children - and the articles of the UN convention that define them. There was even a test for the adults of what we learnt! See lots more on the RRS extravaganza page.

Where Everyone is a Winner

Mitchell Brook children have received a special award for top sportsmanship.

At the Brent schools indoor athletics tournament the team of 14 athletes from years four and five came first in the award for fair play.

It was a big endorsement for Miss Melissa and the team who created and signed their own sportsmanship treaty. Later they each received an individual certificate from the school for the great way they represented the Mitchell Brook values. (Click the pic for a bigger image)

Explosive Explorers: The Kauri and Sequoia Extravaganza

On todays show with the stars of Kauri and Sequoia classes are special guests - the first to reach the Americas, the South Pole, and the Moon.

They showed how it takes great qualities to be the first to do something, or the very first to see something, like courage, perseverance and total belief in yourself. But it is important to be mindful of how others are affected also.

We'll never forget these amazing lessons! See more here.
