Welcome to the Ospreys class page!
The Ospreys are a class of 12 Year 5 children and 11 Year 6 children taught by our class teacher Ms Yusuf.
Year 5 and 6 is an important year group and this year the focus is on teamwork! Being in year 5 and especially year 6, the children are keen to show they are responsible and this is tested by the several jobs they are given throughout the year. Year 6 children will become prefects; this is an important role and the younger children look up to them as they carry out many roles within school. Children in the Ospreys will also have the opportunity to be sports leaders, health and safety leaders and be part of the school council.
Ms Yusuf is expecting the children in the Ospreys to show resilience and be up for any challenge which they may face - this is a fantastic skill to have and continue with when they start high school.
We follow and use the online platform of 'Google Classroom.' This is where our homework will be set, it also will be marked electronically. Pictures or videos of the children will also be uploaded to google classroom and parents can access their child's online platform.
Purple Mash is used for computing across the school. We follow the mixed aged cycles (A and B) within this document.
