Ospreys had an exciting day at Forest Green on Friday! We started by thinking about the food we eat and where it comes from. Pupils were set the task of designing three meals for someone following a vegan diet. Next we did some dribbling practice, and played a game in teams, collecting as many footballs as possible for your team. After lunch we were shown around the stadium, looking at all the environmentally friendly features of the site, such as the electric car charging pumps, solar roof panels, water recycling, and the automated mow-bot. We looked at the model for the planned new stadium, and we also visited the first team dressing room and found out about the ice bath. After that we met Rovers’ keeper, Sam Russell, who signed our FGR shirts and certificates. We had our photo taken with Sam and the Vanarama trophy. Finally we said a big thankyou to everyone at Forest Green for such an interesting and fun day.
Well done to the two Ospreys pupils who this week completed all the mental recall targets on their maths passport test sheet within the time limit, to enable them to move up to the next continent.

In our Art lesson this week, Ospreys looked at the art work of the children’s author and illustrator Liz Pichon, who created the Tom Gates stories. Liz Pichon uses doodle style pictures and decorated text to illustrate the stories of Tom Gates. Ospreys watched some clips of her at work, before having a go at creating their own illustrated cover page for the diary recount they have been writing in literacy this week. The recounts will have an alliterative title, e.g. ‘The Diary of a Bubbly Boy’, and will recount a whole day, as remembered by each pupil.
Well done to our two maths Passport Movers this week, who have worked hard not only to complete all the targets on their continent, but also to become fluent and complete the whole test inside 5 minutes, and move up to the next level.

In our Maths we have been looking at the value of numbers shown on a number line. Ospreys played a game today, marking a point on a number line drawn on a whiteboard, and then writing the number, hidden, on the other side of the board. The partner then had to guess the number by looking at the number line.
