Welcome to Y6 Sparrowhawks!
Sparrowhawks class is one of three year 6 classes at Brampton Ellis Primary School. Our teacher is Miss White and we are also well supported by our teaching assistant, Mrs Hinchcliffe. Continuing the theme, which runs throughout school, our 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.
PE is usually on a Wednesday, children should come to school in their PE clothes.
Outdoor P.E. is usually on a Monday afternoon and is taught by Mr Allen.
Miss White is out of class on a Friday, to allow her to fulfil her role as Assistant Head in the morning and on PPA in the afternoon, and so we have Mrs Malone and Mrs Daniel teaching us.
Throughout the autumn term, our topic is ‘World Cities’ and will later focus in on Egypt. Our class novel is ‘The Red Pyramid.’
During the spring term, our topic will be the Tudors and medieval laws and punishments. For our class novel, we will study some of the works of Shakespeare.
Our final topic in the summer term will be about the environment and Human Rights and we will be using Trash as a class novel.
