Year 6 have been taking part in their cycling proficiency training this week. Lessons begun in the playground where they learned how to stay safe on the roads, be considerate riders, and how to ensure their bike is safe to ride. The children have now taken to the roads!
Children in Year 4 have taken part in a fantastic project at Fulham Cross School this week, where they have made their own chutneys. They were involved in every part of the process, including designing their own recipes, picking the vegetables from the garden, and designing the labels. The final products will then be sold in local Wholefoods shops. Children from Year 4 across the Brightwells Academy have been involved in this new project. We can’t wait to taste them!

On Friday 24th March our school council organised a talent show to help raise money for Comic Relief. Children from years 1 to 6 told jokes, sang songs, showed off their gymnastic skills and did impressions of famous people to make people laugh! We even had some special guests to come and be our judges. Jayden from our school council said “Everyone was so brave to get up on stage to make people laugh. It was a really nice day.” Thank you to all of our talented performers for putting on such a great show!
Our day ended with a fabulous cake sale to help raise money. Thank you to all of our parents for your support and generosity. A special big thank you should go to Malachi and Elle’s parents who came in to school to bake with the children and made over 500 cakes for the cake sale!
Our Year 5 children were given the task of inventing a new product to take along to Dragon’s Den.

Moses in Year 3 said he enjoyed playing his trumpet and playing his first ever solo in a concert.
Year 1 were lucky enough to meet Julia Donaldson today. The children visited Stamford Bridge for an event to celebrate World Book Day.
