Today in Ospreys class, we used the iPads to create a digital collage. We went outside to find interesting things to take pictures of, and then came back in to put them on a collage.
This morning Ospreys had an exciting Spanish lesson with Carolina in which they listened to a Spanish story and had a go at some of the yoga poses. A lovely start to a Friday outside in the sun!
A lot of hard work has been going on behind the scenes at Gastrells, as Ospreys rehearse their play.
We can’t wait to perform it next week.
In maths, Ospreys have begun to study capacity. We compared different sized containers by pouring water in them. We were very surprised by the results! Short containers can sometimes hold more water than tall ones, if they are very wide.
Prior to writing information reports, Ospreys have been using the internet to find out interesting facts about animals from hot and cold climates.
Ospreys learnt how to make ginger beer on Tuesday. The children were divided into 3 groups with each group following a different recipe. After the beer had been made each one was tasted. The most popular recipe was the ‘Cheat’s Ginger Beer’ recipe however it wasn’t as popular as the mass produced one we also tried! We need to practise more!
Ospreys have made and decorated letters to make a special banner for Mrs Merriman. The banner will let everybody know when Mrs Merriman’s door is open or when Mrs Merriman is in a meeting. The children used many different techniques to make such a fantastic banner. Ospreys presented the banner to Mrs Merriman on Thursday.
Ospreys have been learning all about Rounders with Sean from Atlas Sports. They have been throwing and catching but this week they learnt how to use the bat in rounders.
Look at the fantastic pictures below.
A new sign is being created to go outside the front of the school. It will be a huge Kestrell with lots of things on it to represent what goes on in our school. This week, Ospreys made their contribution by drawing cakes and making planets.
In art, Ospreys learnt all about the work of American artist, Georgia Okeeffe, who was famous for painting still life in extreme close up. We painted our own pictures of bright and colourful flowers, inspired by her unique style.
