A visit to the Mirfield Centre and the Community of the Resurrection

Class FS visited the Mirfield  Centre to learn a little more about their work and history. Being the home of the Community of the Resurrection the children were shown  round this modern day monastery. A very interesting experience  for them all that included a tour of the site, quiet reflection, meeting brother Jacob and singing  hymns! Brierley children were once again commended for their first-class behaviour and were fantastic ambassadors of Brierley School.


Party Food!

As part of our Design Technology topic Class FS will be designing and creating a buffet for our leavers’ party. Of course we needed to taste test and analyse the foods available on the market to make our selections!

Brierley Bake Off!

In preparation for our bake sale tomorrow and to celebrate the end of SATs examinations Class FS enjoyed baking some brownies. I would like to take the opportunity to thank Class FS for their hard work and dedication this week (and this term). You are all superstars and I know you have tried your very best and I am very proud of you all.

Learning about the past

Pit Closures…

As we reach the end of our topic on our local history of coal mining Class FS discovered the extreme action the miners took going on strike for a year to save their pit. We considered the arguments from both sides but wanted to experience what peaceful protest would feel like. We made our own signs and banners and proudly paraded them around the playground.

Thinking Actively in a Social Context

Class FS have had a fantastic day researching the board games that are currently available and then designing and making our own. This week we will be writing the instructions and creating advertisements to ‘sell’ these to our classmates.

Working in a coal mine!

Class FS had a fantastic day visiting The National Coal Mining Museum on Wednesday 31st January. We travelled 140m underground to experience what daily life was like for a miner – they even put us to work! We will be using this experience to write tourist information leaflets and stories from a historical perspective.

Class FS visit to Crucial Crew

Year 6 had a fantastic day visiting the Lifewise Centre in Rotherham to discover how to keep themselves safe from fire, peer pressure, cyber bullying and learnt some vital first-aid skills. They have lots of information to share with their families and their behaviour was exemplary. Thank you Year 6!

Groovy Man!

Class FS have been working hard on their Design Technology project, transforming a simple white t-shirt into a 1960’s inspired design. We will post photos from our fashion show when they are completed!
