Welcome to Kites
Kites class is one of four year 6 classes at Brampton Ellis Primary School. The class teacher is Miss Welch and the children are also well supported by the teaching assistant, Mrs Dunkley, as well as a one to one support, Mrs Woodward.
Continuing the theme which runs throughout school, the classroom ethos is Respect, Responsibility and Resilience. We promote being kind and polite to both children and adults in the class, being responsible and continuing to try our best, even when things are challenging.
Outdoor P.E. is usually on a Wednesday afternoon and is taught by Mr Allen – children come to school ready prepared by being dressed in their P.E. kits.
We also do regular games, such as throwing and catching, football, cricket and running during our break times.
Throughout the autumn term, the topic is about the environment, with two books being explored by the children: Here We Are, and the novel, Trash.
During the spring term, the topic will be the Tudors and medieval laws and punishments. Instead of a class novel, children will study some of the works of Shakespeare.
The final topic in the summer term will be ‘World Cities’ and will later focus in on Egypt. The class novel will be ‘The Red Pyramid.’
