Welcome to the Ospreys. We are a class of 24 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 6 is being ‘Reflective’.
For our Topic work this term the Ospreys will continue exploring Ancient Egypt. We have enjoyed the Topic so much we have decided to continue it for a little longer. This term they will be following the footsteps of archaeologist Howard Carter as he discovers the tomb of Tutankhamun and they will be making Canopic Jars from clay.
Continuing with this theme, in Literacy the Ospreys will follow the adventures of Ka the Time Travelling Cat who travels back in time to visit Ancient Egypt. They will explore how the author, Julia Jarmin, uses accurate historical dates and facts such character’s clothes, speech and mannerisms to reflect this time period. The Ospreys will also be using the nine lenses of the FANTASTICS for ideas of how to describe a character travelling through time.
In Maths they will be exploring Geometry: shape and symmetry, position and direction. The Ospreys will also be revisiting fractions and decimals and relating decimal equivalents of any number of tenths or hundredths; recognising that hundredths arise when dividing an object by 100 or when dividing tenths by 10.
In homage to the 2018 Football World Cup, the Ospreys will become Sports Writers writing a detailed match report. They will also be completing daily World Cup Maths challenges.
In Science the class will explore a variety of ways to identify, sort, group and classify living things. They will learn how animals are split into vertebrates and invertebrates and begin to consider the differences between living things within these classifications.
Another incredibly busy term. Let’s get started!
Sports Day – 3rd July (reserve date 17th July)
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.
This term the Ospreys will have P.E. on Tuesdays and Fridays so please have 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.)
