Welcome to Osprey class!
Nearly the end of the first term! Wow!
Well done for achieving so well in the Mocks SATs week. I'm very proud of what you have done.
In English, we created our own prologues based from the one in the story: 'Dream Snatcher'. We used suspense techniques to give the writing atmosphere and make the reader want to find out more about the story. Now, we have moved onto 'Shackleton's Journey'. The true story of one man's expedition to Antarctica and what happened there.
In Maths, we are continuing fractions. We have divided and multiplied them. Also added and subtracted them. In all cases with different numerators and denominators.
We completed our Local area study with a walk and analysing data from the parent questionnaire. We also looked at how Christians celebrate their core beliefs through different expressions and behaviours. Now, we are moving onto electricity and building circuits. This will lead into our DT work, to build our own light-up boxes!
We have completed our guided reading book is 'Goodnight Mr Tom' by Michelle Magorian. The children also watched the film and enjoyed seeing which parts remained the same and which parts they changed for the film.
Our PE lesson and Library session are on Wednesdays. Please remember to wear appropriate kit to school on Wednesday.
Reading records need to be brought in each day please. Homework will be set on Fridays to be returned by the following Friday.
See you soon,
