About ospreys2015

Hello from all of the children in the Ospreys class of 2014/15 at Gastrells Primary School. Please enjoy browsing through our work and some of the activities that we get up to during our time in school. It’s a great class to be a part of.

Sports Day

Standard

Wow! What a scorcher! Ospreys took part in a very hot Sports Day yesterday. They jumped obstacles, skipped on the spot, threw javelins and did shuttle runs. After having a picnic on the field with parent and grandparents they were ready to run the races. All the children enjoyed themselves and Ospreys would like to thank Sean for representing them in the staff race. 

Climbing the walls

Standard

After a very exciting few days, Ospreys had more fun by going to the Climbing Wall in Gloucester on Friday 23rd June. Ospreys were joined by Peregrines in this adrenaline packed morning. During the morning the children climbed walls, went into caves and played special games on a wall that lit up with red lights. All the children had so much fun that all the way home they couldn’t stop talking about all their achievements on the climbing wall.

Ospreys said goodbye to Mr Brown after their trip . Ospreys would like to say Thankyou to Mr Brown and wish him well for  the future.

The Crayon plays

Standard

Ospreys performed 2 fantastic plays over 2 days. The day the crayons quit and the day the crayons came home were brought to life by a very enthusiastic class. The Ospreys had lots of fun learning new acting skills, learning all their lines and songs. Ospreys would like to say a big thank you to everyone who helped them make their performance so fantastic.

Making and Tasting Ginger Beer.

Standard

Ospreys learnt how to make ginger beer on Tuesday. The children were divided into 3 groups with each group following a different recipe. After the beer had been made each one was tasted. The most popular recipe was the ‘Cheat’s Ginger Beer’ recipe however it wasn’t as popular as the mass produced one we also tried! We need to practise more!

Banners.

Standard

Ospreys have made and decorated letters to make a special banner for Mrs Merriman. The banner will let everybody know when Mrs Merriman’s door is open or when Mrs Merriman is in a meeting. The children used many different techniques to make such a fantastic banner. Ospreys presented the banner to Mrs Merriman on Thursday.
