Meet Our Mighty Falcons...
Hello and welcome to the Y5/6 Falcons family! We are very proud of the warm atmosphere we have in class and our new recruits fit right in - we are very pleased to be in the company of such a positive, friendly, upbeat group of children and predict a wonderful year ahead!
All the adults in Falcons work very hard to enable the children to be the very best they can possibly be - both academically and in terms of their wellbeing. Mrs Bostock's and Ms Kearvell's expertise and knowledge is indispensable to us all, and we are joined by Mrs Edmunds this year - a welcome addition with her wealth of skills!
Good communication and mutual support between home and school is at the heart of our practice in Falcons and valued highly. Parents, your children come first, so please get in touch if you have any questions or concerns, no matter how trivial these may seem - we are here to help and keep everyone as happy as we can!
With warmest wishes,
Mrs. Dawn El-Masri
Well, we’ve had our leavers assembly with gifts from church and the amazing profiles that document the journey of each child from the beginning of their Brize journey to the end. It’s all becoming quite final!
Today was also our ‘leavers lunch’; lunch chosen by the Year 6’s and made a little more special with table decorations and gift bags for all of the children courtesy of the lovely Mrs Bostock ❤️
It was a noisy affair but lovely to have another opportunity where they’re all together before moving on 😊
Year 6 Oscars
What. A. Night. I think it is safe to say that the Year 6 are going out in style this year. Thank you so much to the School Association for all of your behind the scenes work to create a night that I am sure they will remember. Also huge thanks to the staff that came along to watch, applaud, award, photograph and dance.
There was some fab House of Pain jumping around, DJ Casper would be proud of your Cha Cha Slide and I think Coolio may need a new job after your karaoke!
Such an amazing night - well done all of you…official photos to follow, courtesy of another former pupil, Hollie Merriman!📸
Our Commonwealth Sports Day
Wow - what a fantastic afternoon we had; from the opening Year 6 baton relay (where they arrived at the track for their last sports day to the crowd applauding them) to our aerobic warm up with Miss ‘Motivator’ Reynolds, cycle races, weightlifting and rugby (to name a few).
It was so amazing to see the children come together to take part and cheer each other on. The Year 6’s were fantastic, helping to guide the younger children and set up the fun races. The teamwork and sportsmanship was brilliant.
It was a VERY closely fought afternoon with many personal wins - but only one House got to lift the cup; congratulations Dragons!!
Class of 2022
After a morning in the classroom talking about mottos and our time at Brize Norton Primary, it was so nice to be outdoors with Year 6 this afternoon making memories. It is unbelievable to think that this bunch will soon be off to Secondary school - so it was an honour to have some of the children request ‘one last forest school’ before they go😊
It was all quite last minute and, although the children were given some inspiration, many of them chose to take our ideas and run with their own. We had some amazing Hapazome pencil cases and tote bags made - but it was also a perfect opportunity to have friends sign their creations.
Of course, we told the children at the start that, if they wanted to do anything that we hadn’t mentioned, then just say; so, several snails were made - alongside a spear!!
Drumming, pond dipping, posing with froglets, bug hunting, fire lighting and den building were also super popular. I just love that some of these kids were just mere 4 year olds when they first came out to us - and yet, here they are today, still loving being at forest school; working together, hanging out, playing and creating. 💚
Congratulations to our 12 cyclists who have passed their cycling proficiency tests this week.
