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 6 is on being ‘Reflective’.
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 this term 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. Our topic will finish with a trip to Stibbington where the Ospreys will be Romans for the day J
In Literacy they will create two Roman themed poems. In order to do this, they will use Jane Considine’s three zones of writing - FANTASTICS, GRAMMARISTICS and BOOMTASTICS. The Ospreys will create a Kenning poem based on the Roman legacies learnt in Term 5 which we will share with the staff at Stibbington and they will also create their own Roman narrative poem inspired by The Highwayman.
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 living things. We will be taking a trip into the local environment to observe habitats and look for bugs. The Ospreys will become experts in the 7 characteristics of living things and will be sharing their learning with younger children in the school.
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. – We will continue to go swimming on Mondays. Please remember to bring your swimming costumes, towels and a packed lunch. P.E. will be on Wednesdays; 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.)
