Welcome to Kestrels Class!
Kestrel class is one of three year 5 classes at Brampton Ellis Primary School. Our teacher is Mr McLeavy and one day a week the class will be taught by our very experienced Higher Level Teaching Assistant, Mrs Krzebietka. Mrs Hackman from the Inclusion Team will also support the class each morning.
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.
Our indoor PE session is on a Wednesday and our outdoor PE session is on Thursday.
We also have a huge emphasis on the benefits and joy of reading. Children are reminded to ensure they are reading as much as possible and bring their records in to be checked on a regular basis.
Throughout the autumn term, the topic is about the Industrial Era and our class novel is ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone’ by J.K. Rowling.
During the spring term, the topic is the Mayans and our class novel is ‘The Jamie Drake Equation’ by Christopher Edge, linked to our science topic on the Earth and space.
The final topic in the summer term is Yorkshire City and Coast and our class novel is ‘Room 13’ by Robert Swindells.
