Welcome to Year 6’s class page! We now have two Year 6 classes at Brackenhill; Rowan and Sequoia. In Rowan class the teachers are Miss Mir (Mon-Wed am) and Miss Saunderson (Wed pm-Fri). In Sequoia Mr Parker is the class teacher. Our teaching assistants are Mrs Jabeen Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday then Mrs French will take over on a Thursday and Friday. Also, we are very lucky to have Mrs Hamid helping us on a Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. As complicated as it may seem we are all really excited to be working together and helping Year 6 during their SATs year. We have lots of exciting things planned for throughout the year and we look forward to sharing them with you on our web page!
This Year So Far...
Year 6 visited the Bradford Royal Infirmary as part of the Injury minimisation project (IMPs). We learned about vital life-saving skills and how to give CPR.
South African Pop Art
We explored the work of Andy Warhol and created our own South African animal pop art. We used the text ‘Journey to Jo’burg’ for inspiration.
Stay Safe workshop
We took part in the annual Stay Safe workshop at Odsal stadium. Here we found out about the different dangers we can face on a day to day basis and how we can ensure we keep ourselves safe.
As part of our Science work, we do lots of investigations. Two of the investigations we looked at were about shadows and plants. We explored what effects the size of a shadow and also what parts make up a plant and what the functions are of these different parts.
As part of this workshop we explored our worries and put them on a scale of 1-10. We then talked about the different ways in which we can be kind to other people. The workshop was planned and run by students in year 6.
In History, we have explored the mysterious world of Ancient Egypt. As part of this work, we researched pyramids and then created our own. We collected vocabulary to use in our English work later in the topic.
French Food tasting
With Miss Day, we have been learning lots about France and the French language this year. As part of this, we were able to taste different foods from France and give our opinion – in French, of course!
Soap making and Science day
As part of Science week, we took part in a special workshop where we explored different scientific concepts. We also had a science day where we explored how to change potatoes into plastic! We also created out own soap. As we were the first primary school to undertake this project, we were also in the local paper!
