For our class read, the Ospreys will use Jane Considine’s Reading Rainbow to continue to explore Journey to the River Sea by Eva Ibbotson.
In Maths, the Ospreys have a very busy term! They will be exploring ‘money’ where they will learn how to convert pounds to pence and vice versa. They will round amounts to the nearest £1 and the nearest 10p to help them to estimate totals and they will compare and order amounts of money. They will also be exploring ‘Time’ – here they will convert seconds to minutes and minutes to hours. They will also convert between longer periods of time – days/weeks/months/years. The Ospreys will be able to tell you both analogue and digital time including the 24hour clock. Finally they will also be exploring ‘geometry’ – here they will investigate angles, and different types of triangles and quadrilaterals. They will also be reading and writing coordinates of positions in the first quadrant. I did say they would be busy!
In Science the Ospreys will investigate living things and their habitats. They will learn about wildlife and their habitats - how their environments have changed and what we can do to help them. We will consolidate our learning with a field trip to Deene Park.
Finally, in DT the Ospreys will explore simple pneumatic systems with a view to create a moving creature. This will be linked to our Science topic living things and their habitats, ie a rabbit leaving its burrow. I can't wait to see what the Ospreys create.
Phew busy final term ahead so let’s get started!
