Ospreys are focusing on invasion games this term, and have been getting to grips with hockey over the last couple of weeks. Ospreys have been working together in teams to develop tactics and practicing their skills with hockey sticks in seven a side games.
We we were delighted to have six Ospreys who have made a great start to the new term, and today set off for the next continent in their maths passports. One pupil completed all questions correctly within two minutes. Fantastic work, all of you!
We had a wonderfully relaxed and fun final day in Ospreys today, with Pirates in the hall and board games in class. Thankyou to everyone for all the kind words and gifts I received today. Thankyou to all the parents who have been so very supportive and helpful throughout the year. Thankyou to all the parents and grandparents who have given their time to accompany the class to make it possible for us to go on all our day trips and visits. Thankyou especially from me to all the pupils in Ospreys who have worked so well, made amazing progress, and above all, been such fantastic fun to be with this year.
I hope you all have a fun filled Summer holiday!
Friday 20th July
Well done to these three Ospreys who managed to complete all their targets in time and answer verbal quick fire recall questions to be able to move up in their maths Passports. They will start on a new continent in Sparrowhawks in September.
In Literacy this term, Ospreys have been reading stories set near the sea or rivers. We are currently writing a recount of the journey of a river, following its course from the source in the mountains, to the river mouth as it opens out to the sea. We have been reading a rhyming story, called ‘The Journey’, by Neil Griffiths and Scott Mann, to help us plan our recount writing. We used the illustrations from the book, drawn by Judith Blake, to give us ideas for our own illustrations of a scene from our river recounts. We thought about how to create perspective in our pictures, and looked at the use of tone and shade, before beginning careful sketches. We then finished our illustrations with watercolour paints. Please come and see all our finished paintings outside Ospreys classroom!
Friday 29th July
It may be approaching the end of the Summer Term for Ospreys but there is still time left for learning and progress. Well done to another pupil who, after months of practice and hard work, this Friday completed all targets in Australasia within the time limit of the Maths Passport test, and is now able to move on up to Antarctica. Fantastic work!
