Welcome to the Ospreys webpage. The class teacher is Mrs Kelly and the teaching assistants are Ms Dimbleby and Mr Aust. We are excited to welcome a new student teacher, Mr Dalby, to our team. We have a stimulating year planned for the Ospreys and parents and carers can follow their learning journey on Classdojo.

 

To enable the Ospreys to access our EPIC curriculum they will continue to use the 6Rs – being Ready to Learn, Responsible, Resilient, Reflective, Resourceful and Respectful. The focus in Term 2 is being ‘Respectful’.

 

Term 2

This term in Geography, the Ospreys will explore Scandinavia. They will learn the difference between the Scandinavian countries of Norway, Denmark and Sweden and the Nordic countries. They will explore the climate, physical and human geography and compare an area in Scandinavia with a local area in Britain. Their learning will culminate in the creation of an information leaflet for tourists who wish to visit to a location in Scandinavia.

 

In English the Ospreys will explore the beautiful picture book The Whale by Vita and Ethan Murrow using Jane Considine's three zones of writing. Together we will write the story of two young whale watchers who set off to capture incontrovertible proof that the mythical Great Spotted Whale exists. For our class read, the Ospreys will use Jane Considine’s Reading Rainbow to explore Empire’s End - A Roman Story by Leila Rasheed. In addition to this, they will also explore Arthur and the Golden Rope by Joe Todd-Stanton - a traditional tale set in the Nordic country of Iceland.

 

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 hearing. They 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 so that ear defenders can be made from that product.

 

In RE the Ospreys will study Christmas around the world, learning about Christmas traditions and understanding the role celebrations play in different cultures and religions.

 

Phew a busy term ahead – Let’s get started!

 

Homework – times tables, a spelling rule with weekly spellings and grammar work linked to current learning or revisiting previous learning. Reading is a vital part of our homework so daily reading should continue - #10minuteRead. Homework will be issued on Monday to be handed in on Friday. Throughout the year, the Ospreys will also be set Creative Topic Tasks which relate to their work in school.

 

 

P.E. – this term P.E. will be on Tuesdays so please come to school in your P.E. kits in school on this day. Due to the Covid restrictions, we will to be outside for P.E. so you will need your trainers and warm clothing.
