“We are really lucky as we have a brand new, special classroom in OGNS. We have a girls’ room and a boys’ room and the girls have even brought in their slippers!”

“Charades and wink murder sessions have been hilarious, with much drama and a lot of giggles. We have loved having the chance to play football with friends on the field, or just taking time to soak in the sunshine and have a good chat”

“Obviously, we are still busy on Google classroom doing our work and staying in touch with our other teachers and friends. Year 5 have particularly enjoyed doing our Haiku poems. Class 4 have produced some fantastic WANTED posters for Viking marauders”

“Although we are having fun in school, we are still looking forward to when all our other friends can come back and join us at school”
