Welcome to Osprey class!
I hope you all had a lovely summer and are ready for an action-packed year ahead!
In English, we will begin with doing some work centered around our class bird before moving onto work inspired by the mysterious book, "House of 100 clocks". After that, we will being focusing on some poetry.
In Maths, we will begin with place value and then move onto the four operations. The children will learn how to identify numbers up to 10 million and understand how to use powers of 10.
Our guided reading book up to Christmas is "Goodnight Mr. Tom". A beautiful book set during WW2 about a young evacuee called William who goes to stay with the gruff Mr. Tom.
Science lessons will be on classification. Identifying the characteristics of different species and how to group different organisms. After this, we will begin our history topic on WW2. The children always find this topic fascinating. We will learn about the fashion, food, evacuation and other points of that time.
Our PE and library slots are on a Wednesday afternoon - (black trousers/shorts and a white top please). Please remember to bring in your reading record each day as we do lots of reading!
