Welcome to Kites Class!
Kites class is one of three year 6 classes at Brampton Ellis Primary School. Our teacher is Mr McLeavy and our very experienced teaching assistant is Mrs Gaskin.
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 outdoor PE session is on a Monday and our indoor PE session is on Tuesday.
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 environment and plastic pollution, with focuses on the U.K. and the Philippines. Linking with this topic, the class novel will be ‘Trash’ by Andy Mulligan.
During the spring term, the topic is World War 2 and our class novel is ‘Letters from the Lighthouse’ by Emma Carroll.
The final topic in the summer term is ‘World Cities’ and will later focus in on Egypt. The class novel will be ‘The Red Pyramid.’
