Overall everyone had a great time. Old Earth School came first with 365 points. Greetland came second with 245 points, All Saints third with 189 points. We came fifth out of eight teams with 165 points. Next time our goal is to train more and represent Calderdale in the Yorkshire final.

On the 19 November 2013, Brooksbank hosted the Calderdale Sports Hall athletics. Seven schools in total took part and the whole thing was a great success. There were lots of events including the triple jump, long jump, vertical jump, 4x1 relay, 6 lap relay,1x1 race, chest push,standing jump, obstacle relay and speed bounce. Unfortunately we couldn’t do the javelin.

Back In Time
Years five and six travelled back in time on Friday 29 November as they relived a day in a Victorian school complete with rote learning, playground games and rigid timetables.
We hope it made them appreciate the richness of today's learning - and the slightly more easy going line on discipline!
It’s not often we get a visit from a Roman but Thursday 5 December was one of those! He came to Y3/4 to make their History topic come to life with tales of weapons, battles, food and toilets...amongst others. All the children loved it.
Fortes Fortuna Iuvat!
Thank you to everyone who came along and made the Christmas Fair so successful. We will let you know how much we raised later in the week.
The choir sang wonderfully to open the event and then headed down into Elland to close the lighting of the christmas tree sing-a-long. They were superb, with a big crowd gathering round to enjoy the rocking and rolling!
This week is Concert Week so we look forward to welcoming you to school once again.
Christmas Is A-Coming
On Wednesday 4 December Mr Adrian Guy, HMI, visited the school to support us in our progress. He visited each class and looked at maths across the school before working with Mrs Simpson and Mr Pilkington looking at the children’s books. This was a very useful and supportive exercise and Mr Guy found lots to celebrate. He does not now intend to visit the school again until the Summer Term, feeling secure that the school is making good progress towards its aims.
