Osprey Class

Welcome to Term 4!

In this term our topic is...London's Calling!

A fantastic Geography focused topic that will teach the children some map work skills, to understand Physical and Human Geography and of course, have plenty of moments for creative, practical and exciting learning opportunities.

We will continue to develop and promote wellbeing, teach high quality PSHE lessons and fill any gaps missed from the period of time when schools were closed,  as well as teach the new core learning from the Year 6 Curriculum. We will also be ensuring that the children are able to engage in creative opportunities to support and enhance wellbeing.

Please message me via ClassDojo if you have any questions or require any further information :)
