Welcome to Osprey's class page!

Ospreys are a Year 3 class taught by Mrs Hillier and we are supported by Mrs Herd and Mrs Hopton. This year we will be exploring what life was like for the Vikings and we are also taking a trip back in time to Ancient Rome!


Our Year 3 children are lucky enough to experience Forest School on a Thursday where they learn with Alex about how to light fires, make wooden necklaces, how to spot different types of birds and much more!

We appreciate that some of the grammar terms that are being taught in schools now are unfamiliar to a good deal of us who were not taught these things during our own school days. This helpful resource should help with these definitions so that you can find it easier to support your child with any homework that they may bring home.

As part of our Roman topic, we have been building our own Colosseum using recycled cardboard. We have enjoyed working as part of a team or independently to build these fantastic creations!
