We continue with our Lockdown learning for the first two weeks of this term, before we return to school. At school, pre-Christmas Covid routines continue with a staggered start - 09:50 and finish 15:10hrs. School uniforms must be worn except on PE days where you can wear PE kit to school. PE will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
This term’s topic theme is Robotics which gives the Ospreys the perfect opportunity to explore the classic novel The Iron Man. In Literacy, they will use Jane Considine’s three zones of writing - FANTASTICS, GRAMMARISTICS and BOOMTASTICS - to explore News Report writing before they write an independent news report on the Iron Man’s Challenge.
In Maths the Ospreys will build on their fraction work from Year 3 and the previous unit, by extending their knowledge of adding and subtracting fractions to fractions where the answers are greater than 1. They will start to explore subtracting a fraction from a whole number, which will support their more in-depth exploration of fractions in Year 5. Finally, the Ospreys continue to find a fraction of an amount, working with divisions within times-tables they have learnt.
In Science we will be exploring Electricity and will use this knowledge in Design and Technology to create a robot head which lights up. What fun!
In RE, the Ospreys will explore the Trinity as we look forward to our Easter celebrations.
Phew - it’s going to be another busy term!
