Forces & Gravity

Investigating the Theory

Ospreys are learning about forces, including gravity. We went outside to investigate the theory that “two objects of a similar shape, when dropped, will land at the same time”.

We used various balls from the PE shed, from sponge balls to medicine balls, and dropped them. Our partners had to get down to floor level to see if they did land at the same time.



It was amazing

Ospreys Forest School

John Muir Award - Conservation

As part of Ospreys conservation element of their John Muir award, we went around the village litter picking … I think you well agree we did well.

We tried to build shelters, but the weather got the better of us, however it was fun.

Ancient Greece

Yesterday we were learning about life in Ancient Greece. Once we had done some research by reading together as a class, we split into small groups and we were asked to recreate Ancient Greece using classroom objects to represent some of the key features found in Greek cities. Ospreys worked really well together in their groups and their results were fantastic, showing the main city features.

Here are some examples of what they came up with. Ask them to tell you what each part represents.

Osprey Journey Sticks

Osprey class are working towards the John Muir Discovery Award during their Forest School time. As part of this they have been learning a little about John Muir himself.   Muir was an adventurer, explorer, writer and botanist. One of his adventurers that combined his love of exploration and botany was an impressive 1000 miles walk. On this walk he took notes but also samples to remind him of what he had seen.

Osprey class went for a more modest stroll but thought about John Muir walk. Like John Muir they collected items as a reminder of what they had seen and where they had been. These items included leaves, sticks, pine cones, stones, feathers etc and then bound them to a stick. Making a ‘Journey Stick’ is a traditional natural craft that has been used by many over the years and across cultural groups, for story telling and catching memories. All the journey sticks made by Osprey class were unique, reflecting their individual creativity and experience. They made a colourful and interesting collection when grouped together.
