Ospreys Year 6
Children from Ospreys recently represented the school in a Basketball competition involving local schools. The children were super ambassadors for the school and played with a smile on their faces throughout. The highlight was a 4-0 victory in our final match!
To begin our new topic, 'Raiders and Rulers', we had a visit from a Saxon storyteller (who looked strikingly like Mr Moseley!) We listened to the tale of Beowulf and then created our own stories - complete with heroes and mythical beasts - in comic-strip form.
Recently in class we have been exploring the work of Andy Goldsworthy, who is known for his use of natural materials to create sculptures using the landscape around him.
Today we used examples of Andy Goldsworthy's work as inspiration for our own pieces. We began to plan for what our sculptures may look like and went in to the school grounds to get ideas for colours and textures that we can use.
Children from Ospreys have recently taken part in a Cross-Country competition at Swanmore College. Each race had around 50 competitors did and all of our children did the school proud by persevering over what proved to be a long and very muddy course!
Well done all!
In English we are aiming to produce our own nature documentaries with the goal of sharing the wonder of the Amazon Rainforest with our intended audience. Today in class we retrieved information from non-fiction texts and considered how we can present it in a way that would inspire a reader.
Whilst we still have quite a way to go on our learning journey, we hope to share our finished documentaries with you at the end of term!
Letters from Uganda
On our return from our Summer break, we were excited to find letters from our pen pals in our partner school in Uganda that had been brought back by Mr Davies following his recent trip.
As well as responding to the letters, we have begun to film short videos to share with our friends, detailing life in our school. We are looking forward to finishing these and sending them over the coming weeks!
