Welcome to Ospreys!
As a class, we believe that hard work and resilience will ensure that everyone achieves to the best of their ability. Our classroom is one where every child’s work is valued, all ideas and opinions are encouraged, and the children are given the tools and support to work at their own level.
We start each morning with thinking skills; this allows our brains to become switched on ready to learn! As you know, reading, writing and maths skills are extremely important and remain the focus of our morning activities. All children are expected to develop their reading, spelling, mental maths and times tables skills at their own level. We practise these every day and they should also be practising at home!
However, we also believe that it is important to have fun and develop their creative skills. Therefore, a lot of our work this year will be done creatively, with an emphasis on presentation.
I hope you will join us in encouraging your child to work hard, take pride in their work and develop a sense of independence. You can help us achieve this by supporting your child with their home learning and independent reading.
Thank you, here’s to a great year!
