Our gardening club have today been sampling the fruits of their labour thanks to Mrs Graham turning their golden raspberry and blackberry crops into incredible jam! They have already picked buckets full of runner beans and their sunflowers have turned to seed ready to gather for next year's sowing. The cabbages fed the Willow Brook [...]
Willow Brook's musicians showed off their talents on Wednesday night in style at our annual music event. From keyboards to choir, drums, guitars, recorders, ukuleles, clarinets and flutes, we raised the roof and enjoyed every minute. Well done, Willow Brook!
I hope that, like me, you thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon of sport on Tuesday afternoon! Willow Brook children are such stars when it comes to winning with style, losing with grace and supporting each other with a sense of community. That's what made the afternoon so happy and why teachers and children were so full [...]

I must say that last week's Year 6 DARE graduation caught me quite off guard! As well as loving the humour and originality of their talk show style presentation, I felt quite emotional watching their sincere and energetic response to all they have learned over the past term. Their hour long assembly showed off so [...]
Friday afternoon saw the grand final of the half term's Wacky Rally - culmination of all the hard work that has been going on around school over the past 5 weeks.

There were a few silly songs this morning in singing to mark the wearing of Red Noses and lift the Friday spirits! Year 4 were certainly the happiest bunch!
You'll see from this small selection of pictures from Friday, that our World Book Day celebrations were filled with smiles... and plenty of reading! We had a great assembly, where extracts from books matched our costumes; did plenty of author related activities and lessons; enjoyed choosing a new book of our own from the giant [...]
