Year 4 / 5 / 6 - 2021 - 2022
Class Teacher: Mr Pearce
Welcome to Osprey webpage
Spring term curriculum overview
This term our project is Materials.
Through cross-curricular learning, we will be exploring how materials are used in our everyday lives. We will be looking at how these materials are used all over the world and comparing where they are found and how countries use and trade them. In Art we will be using environmental artwork by John Dahlsen to create our own sculptures linked to materials in our community. Our class music is The Shape of Water by Alexander Desplat. Our class book is Itch by Simon Mayo. Itchingham Lofte is an element hunter. He uses the periodic table of elements to collect every know element on earth. What he doesn't know yet is that there is a new element about to be discovered, and people will do anything to get their hands on it. Will Itch be able to ensure that this element does not fall into the wrong hands?
Homework will consist of the following:
- Times Tables Rockstars
- Spelling Shed
- Individual reading
It is really important that you read with your child at least 5 times a week.
To support your child at home with their reading you could use lots of different questioning techniques. Asking your child to repeat/ summarise what they have read or picking specific events in the book to talk about will help you to understand what they have learnt. You can find lots of example questions to ask your child below.
Reading books will be sent home with each child along with reading records. Please ensure your child's record is signed after you listen to them read.
Please have a look for any reading books from last term that you may still have at home and bring them back to us as soon as possible.
