Welcome to Ospreys Class!

Ospreys is our year 5 class, taught by Mrs Catchpole

We enjoy a creative approach to the curriculum where all of the children’s needs are catered for. We also link the curriculum to outdoor learning and the children will experience opportunities to learn outside the classroom on a regular basis, alongside timetabled Forest School sessions.

In Ospreys class, children continue to develop the skill of working independently and children are encouraged to challenge themselves across the curriculum.

The children learn through a range of high quality classroom based activities and a range of practical tasks which caters for all learning styles. We link our learning objectives to our termly themes and the children immerse themselves in their learning. All learning is promoted through the school ethos and vision to provide our children with opportunities to become confident, happy children valuing and respecting diversity and who are proud of their achievements.

Our Autumn topic is Comparing People and Places, and is our geography based topic.

Important information for Year 5:

Homework will be set each Friday and must be handed in by the following Thursday. This will contain a variety of work each week linked to the learning in class. There will be English and Maths plus occasional topic based or science learning activities.

Spellings and Times tables are given out on Friday and must be returned the following Thursday in order to organise new ones for next week. It is important that your child accesses the online learning, including TT Rockstars and Purple Mash, in order to practice their times tables.

Forest School sessions take place on a Thursday afternoon – please make sure children have wellington boots, waterproofs and a waterproof coat or jacket. These are part of the everyday school uniform and may be needed for additional outdoor learning sessions at any time, so please make sure your child is fully equipped in school.

Children have PE on a Wednesday afternoon – please make sure children have the correct PE kit in schools at all times.

If you have any questions or queries please do not hesitate to contact me. I am looking forward to welcoming all the pupils back!
