Teamwork - Respect - Aim High


Welcome to Osprey!


Creative Curriculum 

In Spring 2, we will be learning about what it takes to be an engineer! As well as recapping our knowledge about light and electricity in science, we will be designing and constructing electric cars in DT. It will be a very exciting term for Ospreys! 


Guided Reading and Literacy

In addition to continuing our learning on The Other Side of Truth, Ospreys will explore some poetry: Ozymandias by Percy Bysshe and The Way Through the Woods by Rudyard Kipling. The Way Through the Woods will inspire some of our writing later on in the term where we will use the mysterious setting or the woods to write our own mystery story openings. We will also be writing to persuade families to attend incredible theme parks of our own design, inspired by Adrenaline Towers! 






With SATS fast approaching, Ospreys will be ensuring that we are super confident with all our maths topics including place value, four operations, fractions, decimals, percentages, algebra, measurement and geometry!
