Brookburn 7:2 Chorlton Park

Yet again Brookburn (away) triumphed over Chorlton Park, netting 7 goals and only conceding 2, despite starting 1 goal down!

Several players scored more than one goal and others scoring their first goal for Brookburn.

Those players that did not manage to score played exceptionally well in halting the oppositions attackers and wingers from scoring.

After a slow start where we conceded the first goal, Brookburn recovered quickly and managed to cripple the other team’ s defence.

This is a great victory for Brookburn primary and on aggregate it is 21-2 to Brookburn!

Making books with Year 1

This week, we made books for the Year 1 children.

We used their ideas, then we researched popular books to ensure that we were using the appropriate language, structure and organisation to best suit our audience.

Once we had made our books, the Year 1 children illustrated them for us.

The results were fantastic!



Hi everyone!

Alternatively, you can click the image and it should take you there!

Enjoy! 🙂

Brookburn 13 – 0 Chorlton Park – Brookburn record

 Yesterday evening, Brookburn Primary School stormed into a thirteen-nil demolition of Chorlton Park. 

 Liam began the scoring frenzy with a cool finish from close range less than a minute in. He went on to score a hat-trick, along with Michael B. Then Che decided to join in on the fun with four goals.

 With the second half about to begin and the score at 9-0, Laurie was subbed for Shaun and the goalie, James, was substituted for Max.

 As soon as the second half began, Shaun (the super sub) netted two goals and in the last minute Callumn curled the ball into the top corner.

 Brookburn maintain their winning status with two wins on the trot against Chorlton C of E and Chorlton Park, conceding just 1 goal and scoring 15. Brookburn will cherish this victory and look forward to the future games.

Their next game is against local rivals Chorlton C of E on Monday 18th of March.

World Book Day

Today is World Book Day. So, I would like to know:

What is your favourite book and why?

I have a number of favourite books; it is hard to choose one!
I like to read a range of genres, but most of my favourites seem to be fantasy books. Some of these are:

The Harry Potter series – J.K Rowling
The Lord of the Rings – J.R.R Tolkien
His Dark Materials Trilogy – Philip Pullman

I enjoy the fantasy setting and the action in these books. I also like the way that authors such as these create a whole new world with cultures, races and even languages.
I particularly like the way that Rowling plays with language in the Harry Potter books (for example, ‘Diagon Alley’ – ‘diagonally’ and ‘The Mirror of Erised’ – the reverse of ‘desire’).
