The Chicken Coop

Year 5 Visit to the Cuerden Estate

Year 5 visited Cuerden Valley Park on Monday and Tuesday 28th and 29th April to take part in a Victorian themed apprenticeship day. The children tried their hand at becoming a Gamekeeper, a Gardener, a Scullery maid and a Forester. They all enjoyed the day although some took to the hard labour better than others. Who do you think might deserve a job at the big house?

Hundertwasser Art in Year 1

Year one have been looking at the art of Hundertwasser. It has inspired them to produce their own work and the results are amazing. They are all incredibly proud of their masterpieces. What do you think?

Sound – String Telephones

Class 4PW have been looking at sound. They are been looking at how sound travels.

Will have tried to prove that sound travels better through a solid object than the air.

Treasure? Yo, ho, ho!

I’ve just got back from the first performance of Treasure Island by Year 3/4.

Wow! What can I say?

Excellent acting, singing and dancing.

Pirate Day!

Year One enjoyed life as a Pirate on Monday! They looked incredible (and terrifying) and began the day by making up their own Pirate name. During the day the children made hard biscuits that would actually have been eaten at sea. They also used watercolours to paint what they could see through a telescope and worked brilliantly together to create their own 3D Islands.
To top it all off a treasure hunt took place in the afternoon to find our stolen loot. Mr Stanton was made to walk the plank for this!
It was definitely a day to remember.

World Book Day in Year One

We enjoyed reading our own books, comics, dictionaries or magazines in Year One. We then reviewed our books with friends and wrote a leaflet about them.

What did you do to celebrate World Book Day?

Football – Year 3/4

Next Thursday, Sherwood will take part in the Preston Schools’ Year 3/4 Football tournament at Vida.

Mr Whelan has had ‘trials’ with both year groups and, after consultation with his scouts, (Mr Hudson, Mr Green, Mrs Wiles, Mrs Mirza and Mrs Wild) he has selected his squad.

The following children need to get a letter off Mr Whelan on Wednesday morning.

A-Team
Thomas P (GK)
Isaac M
Thomas A
Henry N
Reece L
Bryce M

B-Team
Max B (GK)
Rian B
Sam M
Jay B
James G
Reece C (Y3)
Bobby H (Y3)

Well done to those selected and we are sure that they will represent Sherwood to the highest standards.

If you didn’t get selected, don’t get too downhearted. You never know, you may be selected for other teams in the future.

Pirates beware!

Year One began their pirate themed topic this week. They started by exploring all the resources in the classroom – the role play pirate ship, books, pirate Lego, small world pirate treasure and a treasure island. They also made their own treasure maps and drew ships.

Later in the term we will be learning about famous local animation hero Nick Park who created Wallace and Gromit. He also worked on “Pirates, an adventure with scientists”. We will also be going on a local treasure hunt as we look at our surroundings.

Yo ho ho!
