St. Edward's CE Primary School

Osprey Class

Year 4 / 5 / 6 - 2020 - 2021
Class Teacher: Mr Pearce
Welcome to Osprey webpage

This term our project is The Living World and Space.

Through cross-curricular learning, we will be delving deep into planet Earth (in more ways than one). We will be exploring the outer reaches of our solar system, understanding why we are able to live on Earth. Closer to home, we will look at the life and work of Sir David Attenborough, using his knowledge and experiences as the starting point for our biographical work in literacy. To see the termly overview, click here.


Homework will consist of the following:

  • Times Tables Rockstars
  • Spelling Shed
  • Individual reading


It is really important that you read with your child at least 5 times a week.

To support your child at home with their reading you could use lots of different questioning techniques. Asking your child to repeat/ summarise what they have read or picking specific events in the book to talk about will help you to understand what they have learnt. You can find lots of example questions to ask your child here.

Reading books will be sent home with each child and upon their return we will ensure to leave adequate time before given them out to any other children

Please have a look for any reading books from last term that you may still have at home and bring them back to us as soon as possible.
