Like an Ancient Egyptian!

One day a great Egyptian Pharaoh died of choking. Three thousand years later, the tomb was rediscovered. But what was waiting inside? Find out here! 

Kapok class have been learning about the Ancient Egyptians. Pharaoh thought he was divine, while the life of the people depended on the annual flooding of the Nile. The Kapok extravaganza shared lots what they have discovered, and a really exciting story!

Poems for the Future

Children from year six took part in a poetry competition where all the poems have been sealed in a time-capsule for 20 years. 

The poems are about how Brent might look in 20 years time. The competition was organised by property company Segro who just opened a new site in the local Stonebridge area where the time capsule is buried. The children met the CEO, other entrants, and received a £1000 prize.

SOS: Save Our Stories - latest installment

Children in Year five have been working with scientists from the future at Tricycle Theater to save the world from running out of stories.

They have begun to create and develop their characters for 'the story to save all stories'. Groups have been working on body language and emotions to build on characters, feelings and their settings. We are really looking forward to working on the plots of these characters. Look out for more updates soon!

Making a Difference

Children and staff spent time over the weekend asking shoppers at our local ASDA store to buy a little bit extra and donate it to the Sufra foodbank, who provide emergency food parcels to families in urgent need throughout Brent.

Our partnership with Sufra is one of the ways Mitchell Brook is working for positive change. Assistant Head Teacher Miss Clarke said all those involved enjoyed taking some social action to help improve the lives of others.

Children had great experience seeing that sometimes people reacted negatively to appeals at first - and then came back with donations!

Feed Me Learning - It's Iron Man!

Is it a lesson? It is an adventure? It is learning? Is it fantastic fun? It's all of them - the Magnolia Extravaganza!!

There are learning expectations - can we meet them? Wait: something scary is coming. Could it be... Iron Man? By his power the pupils get to Viking times and a well known US University where a science lesson is happening... 

Lots of family and friends were here to share with the children in this living and learning at Mitchell Brook.

No-Pens Day

We had a no-pens day. Or to put it the other way, a day of specially focusing on speaking and listening skills.

Without pens we have to try other forms of communication, like debate and even drama.

Here are year one talking about maths, and years two and three exploring stories by acting out what they think might happen next....
