Last term was very busy and it looks like Term 6 will be equally as busy. We have our postponed Osprey Centre visit, we have an Athletics Festival, we have a French Experience Day and we are taking part in the Rutland Hub music project. Exciting!
The theme for this term is ‘Looking after our Planet.’ 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.
In line with this term’s theme, in Design and Technology the Ospreys will design and make a lever and linkage poster which will promote recycling.
The theme will continue in Art; the Ospreys will explore the work of two sculpture artists – Barbara Hepworth and Augusta Savage before designing and creating a 2D sculpture inspired by nature and created from wire and Modroc.
In English, the Ospreys will revisit the many genres of writing we have covered this year and use our class read Secrets of a Sun King by Emma Carroll and our topic theme ‘Looking after our Planet’ as a stimuli for our writing.
In Maths, the Ospreys will be learning to convert between units of time and tell time in both the 12 hour clock and the 24 hour clock. They will also learn to present data using pictograms, bar charts and line graphs before moving onto geometry where they will be learning about angles, quadrilaterals and symmetry.
In RE they will continue exploring ‘How and why do people show their commitments during the journey of life?’ This unit enables the Ospreys to learn from different religious and spiritual ways of life, relating to milestones on the journey of life. Through exploring baptism, Amrit Sanskar and marriage, they will learn how and why people show their commitments during the journey of life.
French - Mrs Honorez will be delivering our Modern Foreign Language lessons this term with a focus on sports and hobbies.
We will have PE on Tuesday mornings and Friday mornings this term. On Tuesdays, the Ospreys will be learning striking and fielding skills with a focus on rounders. On Fridays, they will doing dance with a specialist dance instructor from the Welland School of Dance.
Phew - an exciting final term for the Ospreys!
