Welcome to Year Six!
We are an enthusiastic class of 18 girls and 10 boys taught by Mr Isaacs. The other adults are Mrs Mahmood and Miss Kelly.
We have had a fantastic first two weeks back. We have played lots of team building games, worked on several classroom displays and begun our Back to the Future topic by making our own paint and leaving ‘cave paintings’ on the playground wall. We were also proud to win the first attendance trophy of the year!
We are looking forward to presenting our charity assembly on Thursday 28th September and hope plenty of family members come along to enjoy some music and drama.

On Friday, Mrs Matthews our volunteer reader came to talk to us about her work as a host for Bradford Nightstop. Mrs Matthews volunteers her home to people who are in desperate need of a bed for the night. She provides a warm meal and a warm place to rest for the night. Children in Year Six were amazed by the genrousity Mrs Matthews shows on a weekly basis and were moved by the plight of homeless people across Bradford. After Mrs Matthews visit, the class made items to sell at our charity fair on Friday 6th October.
As part of the Leeds thought bubble festival (a celebration of comics and their art.) students in Year Six were invited to Mannigham Library to meet Imran Azhar the chief executive of AZcorp entertainment. AZcorp are based in Pakistan and create comic books about heroes of different nationalities,religions and races. The heroes in their comics help to solve local problems and encourage young people to take action around global issues.
During the workshop, we discussed problems within Bradford and created heroes and heroines that would help us solve our problems. We discussed the importance of tolerance and kindness and how everyday ordinary people can be heroes with small actions.
Watch out Atlas, superheroes are about!
