The children of Brookhill Leys Primary School in Eastwood have thoroughly enjoyed their final week of lessons before breaking up for the summer holidays with a jam-packed programme of events.

Their week of fun kicked off with a summer fair last Friday and included a talent show and the year six leaving assembly to give the youngsters a fond farewell before they move to secondary school.

There was a huge variety of stalls at the summer fair where pupils had the chance to ‘draw the moustache on the teacher’, compete in penalty shoot-outs, play ‘hook-a-duck’ and have their faces painted.

Organiser and deputy head teacher Janine Waring said the afternoon had been well attended by parents. The event took advantage of sunny weather to raise more than £500 for the school, which is on Chewton Street.

The rest of the week included a second talent show on Monday, an Isle of Wight exhibition on Tuesday displaying photos of the year six trip to the holiday destination and a leavers’ assembly on Wednesday.

The talent show was won by nine-year-olds Kasey Scattergood and Kirsty Maddocks, who rewrote the lyrics to ‘Let It Go’ from Disney’s ‘Frozen’ to create a school anthem about Brookhill Leys.
