Owls

Welcome to the wise old 'Owls' class
 
 This year in the Owls class we have a fabulous group of young minds, eight boys and two girls. As this is the Year 6 class and the pupils final year at Brookfields, we encourage the children to develop their communication, independence and social interaction skills, preparing them as much as we can for their transition to secondary provision. The pupils are supported on an exciting and fulfilling learning journey, broadening their skills and developing knowledge, at a pace appropriate to them. We have the highest expectations for our Year 6 class, engaging their interest through a range of fun sensory and practical activities, alongside formal written tasks. During the course of the year, pupils will have the opportunity to get involved with Young enterprise and experience the Year 6 residential (Covid permitting!)
