Ospreys

End of Year Update 

We are now in the last few weeks of school and we would just like to keep you informed of upcoming dates and projects we have on the go. 

Enterprise project:

The children have been busy researching ideas for an enterprise project. It involved them working in groups to present their product to the class to vote on. The next step is to source the cheapest ingredients and put together their product to sell at the summer fair next week. We asked each member of the class to contribute £1 each to kick start the project and watch their money grow. 

Year book project:

All of the Year 6 children are working hard on putting together a special book to mark their time at Larkhill Primary. If you have old photos, especially any old class photos, that we could scan into the computer to include in our book they would be gratefully appreciated. We will look after them and return them to you as quickly as possible. 

Science project:

This term we have asked the children to design and build a 3D structure that will have an electrical circuit attached to it to either light something up or have moving parts. If you have any suitable items at home, please have them ready to begin building on Monday 2nd July during our D+T/Science lesson. Children, you will need your cardboard box ready for Monday. 

Summer fair:

We are aware that most Year 6 are out at taster days on Wednesday 4th July but understand that some of you will be coming back to join in with the festivities. Some of those that are, have signed up to help run our enterprise stall as well as take part in a special performance the Year 5 and 6s will be putting on. 

Family Camping out and BBQ 

Next Friday on the 6th July, Year 6 will be camping and having a BBQ with their families on the field following the lasertag at the Space Station. More details to follow in a letter on Friday. 

Year 6 show:

  • Dress rehearsal – Friday 13th July at 9.30am  This is when the rest of the school will get the opportunity to watch the end of year show: Alice the Musical. We would like to invite any pre-schoolers to this performance as the show nights are only for those aged over 8 years old. Ticket letters are to follow next Monday.
  • Performance night 1 Tuesday 17th July at 6:30pm
  • Performance night 2 Wednesday 18th July at 6:30pm 

Leaver’s celebration and picnic:

On the last day of school, Tuesday the 24th July we will be having a Leavers Celebration that will start at around 10:45 am and be finished by approximately 11:15 am. It will include some songs, speeches and readings. This will then be followed by a picnic lunch in the hall (outside if the sun is shining). When this reaches a natural end point the children are then free to go home and begin their holiday.

Thank you

Topic Term 6

Ospreys-Topic-Term-6.pdf

 

This term Ospreys have been busy learning about World War II. We started at the beginning finding out how it all began, who were the allied and axis powers and where it all look place. Then we wrote a series of different recounts such as diary entries, descriptive recounts of an event, informal letters and eyewitness accounts. 

In October we also took part in a whole school Fiji day and Year 6 looked at some intricate patterns that we had a go at recreating using tracing paper to repeat our pattern.

We have been learning about the digestive system in our Science lessons. Look at our science experiment below:

Science - The digestive system

Literacy

We have spent some weeks looking at including tension and suspense to our writing through horror. We watched the short film clip from The Literacy Shed 'Francis' to inspire our writing; it was very scary!  See the link below.

Maths - Fractions, fractions and more fractions!
