Welcome to Ospreys Class!
Osprey 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 assistants, including Mrs Sykes, Mrs Walling and Mrs Hinchcliffe.
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. We regularly recap our learning, to help us to remember it and develop a positive, responsible attitude and resilience towards learning. Our R.E. and PSHE topics also build upon developing tolerance, respect, responsibility.
Outdoor P.E. is usually on a Monday afternoon. Indoor P.E. is usually on a Tuesday afternoon. We recommend that children have their P.E. kits in school every day.
Throughout the autumn term, the topic is about the environment and plastic pollution, with focuses on the U.K. and the Philippines. The class novel is ‘Trash.’
