Empty Classroom Week

As part of Brook Greens ongoing  commitment to learning in the natural environment the school took part in Empty Classroom Week.  Students and staff planned their lessons to take advantage of our unique environment.  The weather was really kind to us and we took every opportunity to get out and about. I witnessed a really great  maths lesson on shapes where students had to collect 9 twigs and make as many triangles out of those 9 twigs.The record was 18! The teacher involved commented

"This sort of education lends itself to experiencing the learning firsthand.  Nature is the best teacher after all. I cannot wait for the next one in July".
