Welcome to the Ospreys. We are a class of 30 children. Our teacher is Mrs Kelly and our teaching assistants are Mrs Riley and Mrs Bexson. We are delighted to have Miss George, a student teacher, join our team. Our learning journey, this year, includes many exciting activities which you could follow on Twitter. Send a follow request to @Ospreysketton and receive up-to-date pictures and information of what we’ve been doing.
Epic Learning – We have introduced ClassDojo to the school this year. It is being used to promote the 6 Rs – being ready, responsible, resilient, reflective, resourceful and respectful. Our focus in Term 5 is on being ‘Responsible’.
We will continue on our learning journey with Barry but his focus will be on promoting emotional wellbeing – be on the lookout for his tweets giving us tips on how to keep healthy.
Our Topic for the next two terms is " Veni, Vidi, Vici!"
This Topic provides opportunities for the Ospreys to become history detectives exploring the Roman invasion of Britain, Boudicca’s rebellion and Roman buildings and engineering. They will also use their Roman studies to create their May Dance. Parents be warned!
In Literacy they will make a documentary called ‘What the Romans did for us – the Legacy!’ In order to do this, they will use Jane Considine’s three zones of writing - FANTASTICS, GRAMMARISTICS and BOOMTASTICS - to explore information texts and internet articles about Roman Britain. They will learn an important skill when conducting independent research – to be discerning when evaluating digital content. The Ospreys will then collate all their research and create a documentary using video editing software.
In Maths they will be revisiting Roman numerals and embedding this learning by creating Roman maths games. They will start the term by exploring decimals before moving onto measurements and looking at perimeter and length. Times Tables Rock Stars will continue - Keep Rocking Ospreys!
In Science the Ospreys will be investigating sound. The rock stars of the world need their help. They want their children to come to their concerts and rock-out but they want to protect their precious ears. The Ospreys will find out all they can about sound; how it travels, pitch and volume. Then they will investigate materials to see which will provide the best insulation against sound.
A short Term but a busy one! Andiamo Ospreys!
Homework – Maths Super Sixes - Monday to Thursday. Reading is a vital part of our homework so daily reading should continue. They will also be given a spelling rule and weekly spellings to learn. Remember to practise your Times Tables by taking on the Rock Star challenges!
P.E. – this Term on Mondays we will be going swimming. Please remember to bring your swimming costumes, towels and a packed lunch. P.E. will be on Tuesdays; we will try to be outside for as much as possible this term so you will need your trainers. (Bring your plimsolls too, just in case we are inside.)
Multi-Sports - Wednesday 8th May.
May Dance - Thursday 23rd May.
