Teamwork - Respect - Aim High
We are now at the end of the Spring term. Our learning this term ahs been 'What makes a good story.' In History and Art we have studying the 'Early Islamic Civilization'.
We had hoped to hold an exhibition to share our learning but unfortunately that is not currently possible. We have therefore put together our learning into a virtual exhibition. We hope that you enjoy watching it and learn something about this interesting period in history.
The outcome for this term's learning, was planned to be the creation of a community event / group, to support people who are new to our local or school community. This was going to involve cooking food for others and having a get-together in school. Unfortunately, due to the ongoing pandemic and the important restrictions in place, we have had to rethink this. The children in Osprey class decided that they would instead, carry out three different activities linked to food and our community.
1. A recipe book, with favourite recipes from our community
2. A survey about peoples' favourite foods
3. 'Food Stories' where people share the stories behind why some meals are special for them
In order to complete this project, we want to ask you, our community, to join in. Please read the children's letters and information to find out more. All the information you need is below. Please send all contributions to email@example.com and use the subject box to tell us whether it is the survey, a recipe or a food story.
We are very much looking forward to receiving your contributions and publishing them on this page.

Autumn term: part 1.
Osprey Class have settled in very well on their return to school. We have quickly learnt our new routines and a new normal at school.
This term much of our learning is based around the book we are studying, The Other Side of Truth by Beverley Naidoo.
In English we will be reading the story and focussing on the new vocabulary including some Yoruba and Pidgin English. We are going to be writing recounts and looking at journalistic writing including interviews.
In RE we are looking at commitment and learning about the five pillars of Islam.
In PSHE we have looked at friendships and how to keep ourselves safe.
We have PE twice a week. Currently both outdoors on a Tuesday afternoon and Thursday morning and we participate in the Golden mile daily, weather permitting.
