Term 3 – Wow it’s 2022!
We start 2022 with our Geography topic where we will explore the world beyond Europe by visiting the continent of Asia. Our aim is to answer the enquiry question - how does water travel around the world? In order to answer this question we will learn about the water cycle and the importance of water as a resource through studying the River Ganges.
In English it is poetry all the way this term. We will start with having fun writing Kennings and will move on to explore the use of imagery in poetry. Our poetry journey will be aided by the wonderful anthology of poems Poems from a Green and Blue Planet by Sabrina Mahfouz and Pie Corbett’s The Works.
We also have another awesome class read this term The Firework Maker’s Daughter by Phillip Pullman.
In Maths the Ospreys will continue developing their understanding of multiplication and division by learning how to use written methods to multiply and divide 3-digit numbers by 1-digit numbers. They will then go on to use this knowledge to problem solve.
In Science the Ospreys will be investigating electricity. They will try to answer the enquiry question – why doesn’t my TV work? In order to answer this question the Ospreys will learn how to construct a simple series circuit and investigate how to identify electrical conductors and insulators. They will use this knowledge to solve electrical circuit problems and develop a buzz wire game.
In RE the Ospreys will be exploring what it is like to be a Sikh in Britain today with the aim of enabling them to hold balanced and informed conversations about religion and belief. At the end of this unit, they should know who the 10 gurus are, what the 5Ks are, what the holy scriptures are, how Sikhs worship and know what Sikhs believe about God.
We will have PE on Monday afternoons and Tuesday mornings this term. On Mondays the Ospreys will be learning to play Tennis. They will learn the rules of Tennis and apply throwing and catching skills so they can rally and play in a game situation. On Tuesdays they will continue to improve their skills of travel, travelling with a ball, and sending it with control and accuracy.
Looks like we are going to have an exciting term to start an exciting 2022!
