Welcome to the Ospreys. We are a class of 29 children. Our teacher is Mrs Kelly and our teaching assistants are Mrs Riley and Mrs Christoforou. 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 – After a year travelling through the EPIC solar system Barry is back! The Ospreys look forward to sharing more adventures which they will help him prepare for through the 6Rs – being ready, responsible, resilient, reflective, resourceful and respectful. Our focus in Term 6 is being ‘Reflective’.
Our topic " Veni, Vidi, Vici!" continues allowing the Ospreys to carry on being history detectives exploring the Roman invasion of Britain, Boudicca’s rebellion, and Roman buildings and engineering. To support this exciting topic they will be visiting Stibbington Centre on Friday 30th June to experience being Romans for the day.
In Literacy the Ospreys will engage in active reading and exploration of a 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 they will be exploring Geometry: shape and symmetry, position and direction and area and perimeter.
In Science the Ospreys will continue with the BBCs Terrific Scientific campaign. This term they will explore carbon storage through the context of trees on our school grounds. In addition they 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.
