Ms Sarwar, Ms Stock and Mrs Baldwin would like to welcome you to Ospreys class web page.
As many parents are aware school will be closed from Monday 23rd March until further notice. In preparation for this eventuality, every child has been provided with additional booklets to support them with core subjects, Maths and English. In addition to this, children have logins for Purplemash, TT rockstars and My Maths which they can use to complete tasks and homework set.
White Rose, the maths curriculum we currently use in school, has created home-learning for most year groups. It will be updated regularly.It relies on worksheets but most of them do not need to be printed off, so children could work on paper.

. STEEL PAN LESSONS
On Monday 13th January, Ospreys class began their music lessons for the term. They have been learning all about the steel pans which is the musical instrument they are learning to play. Throughout our music lessons, the children have learnt how to read music and recognise different notations, listen and respond as well as, learning some historical facts about the origin of steel pans. The children have learnt three songs which they will on our 'play day' at King's house.
ENGLISH! ENGLISH! ENGLISH!
Our learning this half term is based on Ted Hughes book called The Iron Man. During the week, the children have used their inference skills to explore who the Iron Man is, where he has come from and who made him. The class made some of the following predictions:
The Iron man was made to destroy the world by a villain.
The Iron man sends smaller robots to destroy the planet.
The Iron loses a body part and he will need help from the little boy. They will become best friends.
The children have been learning about fractions over the past few weeks. In our lessons, the children have learnt to recognise a range of fractions and how many parts make a whole. In addition to this, they have learnt to add and subtract fractions with the same denominator, find equivalent fractions and find fractions of numbers.
