Making Mince Pies for the Christmas Fair

Ospreys were busy last Friday morning making puff pastry mince pies to sell at the school Christmas Fair later that afternoon. Children cut out lids and bases, then spooned in mincemeat to each pie, carefully sealing and crimping the edges. With the help of some parents who generously gave their time, we were able to bake more than 100 pies that morning. Pupils then dusted them in icing sugar for a frosty Christmas finishing touch.


Frankie‚Äôs Magic Football Reading Challenge

Four weeks ago I bought a series of books for Ospreys Class, written by former England footballer, Frank Lampard. The set, comprised of eleven books, tells of the adventures of Frankie, and his magic football, which takes him to a different world in each story. The set of books came with a free Frankie’s Magic Football kit bag, and so I set the challenge that the first person who could read all eleven books, recorded correctly in their reading log, and successfully answer questions on the stories, would receive the kit bag as a prize.

Well done to this Osprey, pictured here with his new Frankie kit bag, who was the first to read all eleven adventures!
