Road Trip USA
Welcome to the Ospreys!
This term we will be learning all about the USA! We will be starting by learning about the Native Americans and reading a range of Native American myths before having a go at writing our own. We will learn all about the discovery of America and also hear some daredevil stories involving Niagra Falls. In topic, we will become geographers and learn all about North America and its geographical features. We will explore the Native American's iconic totem poles as well as designing and sculpting our own totem poles. Science will be all about 'Living things and their habitats' and will be launched by our very exciting trip to Yorkshire Wildlife Park.
Science will be taught by Mrs Wicks on Wednesdays.
PE will be on Mondays and Thursdays so please make sure children have PE kit in school for these days. In Thursday's PE sessions, the children will be working with our Inspire+ dance coach Michelle.
Grammar and punctuation work will be set every week and will be an activity to help children consolidate their learning from literacy lessons. Sometimes the homework may be a consolidation activity from a previous week's learning to help children to recap.
Spellings will be set on Thursday based on the spelling rule/pattern we have been learning in class that week and will be tested on the following Tuesday. Occasionally, spellings set may be a list of previously learnt spellings as a way for children to recap these.
Please make sure your child is reading regularly at home and recording their reading in their reading journals.
Please feel free to pop in and see me if you have any questions or concerns.
