Welcome to the Ospreys. We are a class of 26 children. Our teacher is Mrs Kelly and our teaching assistants are Mrs Riley, Mrs Bexson and Mrs Roberts. Our exciting learning journey can be followed on Twitter. Send a follow request to @Ospreysketton and receive up-to-date pictures and information of what we’ve been doing.
Epic Learning – Having travelled through the EPIC solar system, Barry now has his Fishatron 3000 which he will use to travel around our wonderful planet. The Ospreys look forward to helping him on his adventures by earning Fishatron fuel through our work on the 6Rs – being ready, responsible, resilient, reflective, resourceful and respectful. Our focus in Term 3 is ‘Resilience’.
In Literacy the Ospreys will engage in active reading and exploration of the narrative poem, The Highwayman by Alfred Noyes. Through practical activities and discussion, the class will explore how writers use language to create dramatic effects. They will also investigate different aspects of longer, narrative poetry, including the structure. To explore the characters in greater depth the Ospreys will use drama strategies and they will devise questions to ask the main characters.
In Maths the Ospreys will be measuring and calculating the perimeter of rectilinear figures in centimetres and metres then learning to convert between different units of measure such as metres and kilometres. They will also be exploring distributive law by solving problems which involve multiplication and addition.
Excuse me, are these your teeth? Who did this poo? Am I a predator?... The Ospreys will find the answers to these and other peculiar questions about digestion and food chains in Science this term.
Reading is a vital part of our homework so daily reading should continue.
Maths – Super-sixes - Monday to Thursday.
Spellings - a spelling rule and weekly spellings to be learned.
Topic Project – will be set once a term.
This term the Ospreys will be Swimming on Mondays and have P.E. on Fridays so please have your swimming costumes and P.E. kits in school on these days. We will try to be outside for P.E. as much as possible this term so you will need your trainers. (Bring your plimsolls too, just in case we are inside.)
