Summer days are here again!

The children have completed our TASC day on the theme of summer. By Thinking Actively in a Social Context they have participated in many summer activities, showing how they can work together co-operatively. With the exception of Class MB, pupils from other classes were put into a big mixing bowl, given a stir and with a pinch of hard-work and a sprinkling of caring and sharing they came out in different groups. Everyone worked very hard and Mr Reed was especially pleased with the way our older pupils supported and helped the younger children, a real recipe for success! Well done everyone and thank you for such an inspirational day…

 

 

Awesome Athletics!

Team spirit wins through! Class FS enjoyed an afternoon of athletics at Dorothy Hyman on Thursday 15th June. Our team of 26 children competed in a range of events from javelin to the 600 metres. We finished 5th out of the 9 schools on the day but displayed determination, team spirit and sportsmanship. Well done Year 6!

Ancient Egypt

Class EF visited the Leeds City Museum on Tuesday. We were very excited because we got to see a real Egyptian Mummy. It was over 4000 years old!!

Class AH visit Yorkshire Sculpture Park

We all had a great day viewing some of the many sculptures in the park by Barbara Hepworth and Tony Cragg and then using this as inspiration for our own work.

Despite the very soggy weather Class AH were not deterred from their mission to build large abstract,sculptures based on opposites such as land and sea or man-made and natural.

Mission accomplished!

A very special meeting

On his recent visit to the Vatican, Fr Ian had a very special meeting!

 

 

Helping your child to learn!

Our final half-term learning plan has been added to the website. We welcome the support and knowledge that parents give to the children and our school. Please copy the plan, from your child’s class teacher, to assist with any work at home. It is helpful to discuss the work being done at school and also finding out more information with them. 
Thank you for your assistance in helping your child to learn!

 

A special service

We welcomed Fr Ian today to lead our school Mass. The service was extra-special as we were outside in our Peace Garden, bathed in beautiful Spring sunshine. We reflected and gave thanks for someone special  in our lives and then said prayers to God for His love. The children sang ‘He’s got the whole world in His hands’, which seemed very appropriate today listening to the birds and enjoying our lovely school environment. Some pupils received Communion and Fr Ian closed the service with a special blessing for us all.

 

Goodbye!

Teaching assistants Mrs Allen and Miss Greenwell are leaving us today. They have been a fantastic support to the children at our school. Although we will miss them very much everyone knows that those who leave Brierley school always take a little piece of us with them – wherever they go and whatever they do, and in turn they leave something special with us. With fond memories and our very best wishes to you both thank you very much for the love, care and friendship shown to all of us over the years.
