We’ve had a great week in Year 1. The children have settled well into all of the different routines and have already had some great experiences, especially when exploring their topic of hot and cold. They have built hot and cold scenes, touched (and tasted!) ice, felt warm sand and enjoyed role playing in desert and polar areas. We also spent time learning to draw chickens! This was a fun way to teach the children how our pencil grip is really important for writing and drawing and the pictures they created were amazing! Ask them to draw you a chicken at home!
On Monday the children had a fantastic time on their school trip. Have a look at the different experiences they had when exploring in the woods.
The chicken coop has arrived and finally been put together! The chickens will be arriving at their new home next week and we can’t wait. The chicken coop is for the whole school and we’re looking forward to arranging for children from across the school to help look after them. Do you want to help?
From Monday 9th June, you are able to vote for our school to receive some new cricket whites courtesy of Arnold Clark. Click the link to take you to the relevant page. The more votes we get – the more likely it is we will win the kit!

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?
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?
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.
Did you enjoy it?
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.
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?
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.
Thomas P (GK)
Max B (GK)
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.
