So far this term...
Our first few weeks in Osprey:                                                                               
 
We have all settled in to Osprey now, in our temporary classroom (the old Kingfisher). Everyone has come back with lots of energy and determination to work hard this year. See below for some of the exciting activities we have taken part it so far!
 
In Science we learnt all about how to keep our bodies healthy.
We made fortune tellers in our PSHE lesson on being kind. Each number had a kind message or action hidden beneath it.
Our Maths focus for the first 3 weeks was place value. Here we are working together to show place value of numbers in lots of different ways.
