Osprey Class

 

Welcome to the Osprey Class page! My name is Miss Robbins and I am the Osprey Class teacher. I am new to Aylesford School, and I am so excited to be a part of the Aylesford family. I like to make learning exciting and fun! In Osprey Class, we will spread our wings and soar through new adventures.

Summer Term

Our topic in Osprey Class this term is 'Pharaohs'

The April Fools' Day - gaming and betting events in Egypt

We are time travelling back to Ancient Egypt. We will be studying what Ancient Egypt was like, noting connections over time and understand how Ancient Egyptians recorded information (using hieroglyphics). I can't wait for all the fun and exciting learning that will be taking place, particularly when the chin will be taking part in mummification!

As always, we will be covering this across the curriculum, linking it to creative and exciting ways for children to experience.

In Literacy, we will focus on the key texts: ‘There's a Pharaoh in our Bath.' We will also focus on observational poetry and create our own poems.

Reading for pleasure

Reading for pleasure can make a big difference to learning! Throughout the day, the children will have opportunities to read their book, they can even get cosy in our reading corner! Evidence shows if you read at home for 20 minutes per day, you will have heard 1,800,000 words per year. 

 

Homework

Pupils will continue to have two pieces of homework each week which will be found on EdShed and Purple Mash/TTRS:

  • Weekly spellings (set on EdShed)
  • A piece of work which will consolidate learning from class (Purple Mash) OR times table practice (either to be set on TTRS or taken home on a slip).

In addition, please continue with:

  • The creative homework
  •  Daily reading
  • TTRockstars/times table practise in preparation for the MultiStar quiz

 

Home Learning

If you are self-isolating and are feeling well enough, please access the home learning links via the home learning timetable. The links are in line with what we are learning in class and each activity is included in the video, therefore it will need to be paused at the appropriate time to complete the activity.
