Well done to the two Ospreys pupils who this week completed all the mental recall targets on their maths passport test sheet within the time limit, to enable them to move up to the next continent.

In our Art lesson this week, Ospreys looked at the art work of the children’s author and illustrator Liz Pichon, who created the Tom Gates stories. Liz Pichon uses doodle style pictures and decorated text to illustrate the stories of Tom Gates. Ospreys watched some clips of her at work, before having a go at creating their own illustrated cover page for the diary recount they have been writing in literacy this week. The recounts will have an alliterative title, e.g. ‘The Diary of a Bubbly Boy’, and will recount a whole day, as remembered by each pupil.
Well done to our two maths Passport Movers this week, who have worked hard not only to complete all the targets on their continent, but also to become fluent and complete the whole test inside 5 minutes, and move up to the next level.

In our Maths we have been looking at the value of numbers shown on a number line. Ospreys played a game today, marking a point on a number line drawn on a whiteboard, and then writing the number, hidden, on the other side of the board. The partner then had to guess the number by looking at the number line.

In Literacy, Ospreys were set the task of finding as many adjectives as they could, using alliterative adjectives to describe a boy and a girl. Pupils also found adjectives beginning with the same letter sound as their own. We used dictionaries and thesaurus to find our words. We will use our favourite alliterative phrases for the titles of our diary recounts.

Ospreys this week began limbering up for Gymnastics. Pupils were shown some simple balances and movements to start with, and began sequencing these into a routine. We practiced forward rolls and our more advanced gymnasts even demonstrated cartwheels.
