Welcome to Osprey!


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.


The Other Side of Truth. By Beverley Naidoo

Running alongside this our curriculum topic is focussing on Geography and Science. We are learning about communities including looking at the lives of refugees and asylum seekers, finding out why they need to leave their homes and move to a new country. Our science learning is all about classification of plants and animals and we are particularly looking forward to learning about Micro-organisms, a very topical subject at the current time!

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.
