This term we are performing What’s the Crime Mr Wolf? Under the watchful eye of Lord Feathers of Eiderdown, Fabletown's Forest Court meets to bring charges against Mr Wolf for his dastardly deeds. The prosecutors, Mr Hugh Mann and his assistant, Justin in Case, call on a range of characters to give evidence. You, the audience, are the jury and must decide whether the verdict is guilty or not guilty! So please look out for news about ticket sales – we look forward to seeing you there.
Continuing with this theme, in Literacy the Ospreys will analyse the story of the Wolves in the Walls and compare it to other stories they have read. They will explore how the author, Neil Gaiman, plays with rhyme, repetition, alliteration, and metaphors to write a slightly scary but hilarious tale. They will then rewrite the story which they will share with their Falcon friends and their pen pals.
In ICT the Ospreys will be learning how to code - they will learn how to create effective and precise algorithms, they will learn how to use loops/repetition within code to avoid repeating commands and they will learn to use the ‘if statements’.
In Science the Ospreys will be developing an understanding of States of Matter, through a large range of simple practical enquiries.

Homework – this term we will continue to focus on Times Tables so please continue using the Times Table Rockstars. In addition, there will be weekly maths homework which will relate to the maths we are doing that week. Reading continues to be a vital part of our homework schedule so daily reading should continue - #10minutesRead. Weekly spelling rules will also be issued.
This term the Ospreys will have P.E. on Wednesdays and Thursdays 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 and warm clothing. (Bring your plimsolls too, just in case we are inside.)
