Term 4

The Ospreys start Term 4 with a Geography topic, where they will learn about rivers and their effects on the landscape. Their aim is to answer the enquiry question - how does water travel around the world?  In order to answer this question they will learn about the water cycle and the importance of water as a resource.


In English the Ospreys will explore the awesome book Arthur and the Golden Rope by Joe Todd-Stanton. They will use this book as a driver to create their own myth and an information text. The Ospreys still have a few chapters left of last Term's thrilling class read before they move onto The Secret Lake by Karen Inglis which is a time travel mystery adventure. 


In Maths the Ospreys will be learning about fractions and decimals. They will find links between tenths and hundredths; identify equivalent fractions; learn to simplify fractions and explore fractions that are greater than 1.   Once they have mastered this they will then learn how to add and subtract fractions with the same denominator; learn how to subtract a fraction from a whole number and understand how to find a fraction of an amount. Fractions, fractions and more fractions!


The Ospreys also have Design and Technology this term. The enquiry question for this topic is ‘Can you design a tasty lunchtime snack?’ They will investigate different sandwich fillings and different ways to make a sandwich.  They will develop an understanding of what healthy eating is and what seasonality is. 


In RE the Ospreys will be exploring why Christians remember the events of  Holy Week every year.  The idea of Salvation and the events of Holy Week are at the centre of Christian belief. They will explore readings from Mathew, Luke and John about Palm Sunday, the Last Supper and the Resurrection.


We will continue to have PE on Monday and Tuesday afternoons this term. On Mondays the Ospreys will be doing Orienteering. They will learn how to use directional language to effectively navigate and they will demonstrate a range of effective teamwork skills.  On Tuesdays they will be doing Gymnastics where they will create and perform a floor sequence of 4–6 actions combining various types of rotational actions.


On Tuesday mornings Mrs Honorez will be teaching French and to top off this busy Term we also have our class production ‘Ye-Ha!'


An incredibly busy and exciting Term ahead of us! wink
