Sherwood were invited to take part in a penalty competition at Blackburn Rovers’, Ewood Park ground at the half time interval of ESFA u18 v SSFA u18.
We didn’t win but had a good time.
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.
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!
Hearts were pumping not just with love on Valentine’s Day in Year One!
We learnt about what the heart does, how it works and how to keep it healthy. We tested our heart rate, used stepometers and tasted healthy homemade smoothies. The children invented their own.
We then finished the day by learning a new cheerleading routine with our own pom-poms!
We are exhausted! But our hearts have been active!
3CW were so impressed when they shared the stories that 2MH had written about Horrid Henry this week. Year 2 heard some of the Year 3 stories too. What did you think about our story time?
Everyone in Year 1 and Year 2 had a fantastic time putting on our show last week. Here are a few pictures to remember it by.
Year One discussed the recent winter storms. They were inspired to write amazing poems about stormy seas. They used sand, pebbles and water to find the sounds of the sea. They even flooded a doll’s house to see how it would feel to have their houses flooded by a winter storm.
Special films of waves crashing made the classroom feel cold and wintery!
Could you write a poem about a winter sea?
Year One have enjoyed investigating flowering bulbs over the past few months. They have made up their own experiments. Some of them decided to put bulbs in the freezer or fridge to see what happens. Others put them in sand or water.
The results have been very interesting. Did the bulbs in the freezer survive?
All the children that travelled to the MEN on Tuesday had a fantastic time. Their singing and behaviour was wonderful and it was great to be a part of such a special event. It might have been a long day but it was worth it! I’m looking forward to next year’
s trip already! What did you think about the day? Would you like to be a part of it next year?
This morning we had a Chinese takeaway in Year 1. The children enjoyed tasting spring rolls, noodles and prawn crackers and thinking about how to describe the food. We then wrote letters back to the Takeaway to thank them, describing our thoughts about the food. One idea was that prawn crackers could be made in special shapes, like a heart or car! What do you think about Chinese food?
Despite getting a bit wet, we had a great walk in the local area to Booths. What are your highlights of the morning?
