Osprey Class - Year 5 2023 - 2024
Welcome to a full, fun-packed, exciting new year of learning in Osprey Class!
To find out more about who will be teaching the class click on our 'Meet The Teaching Team' page.
Just a short overview of some of the topics we will be covering in Osprey Class this term:
In English we use quality texts as vehicle through which we develop our writing. We won't share what these texts are here as certain lessons require children to predict what the text is about or what comes next. In maths we are excited to continue using Power Maths. This is a mastery approach to the teaching of mathematics designed to strengthen and deepen understanding for their currciulum objectives. It will help ensure the children are fluent in mathematics, whilst also embedding problem solving and reasoning skills. This term we will be focusing on place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and fractions.
Music will continue to be every Thursday with Mr Kitcher learning Percussion.
In our wider curriculum:
R.E - 'Creation and Science: Conflicting or Complimentary' and 'Was Jesus the Messiah?'
