Term 2 Week 4 - Nov 27th 2020
Our current project, 'Sharing our Past; Shaping our Future' comes to an end in three weeks time. Over the past two and a bit years we have welcomed twelve foreign teachers and fifteen of their pupils to our school, and have given fifteen of our own pupils trips to Spain, Poland, Croatia and Finland. At school we have run a 'history day' and a 'classic book' day, researched our school history from log books, made a comparative study of our school and our partners' schools, designed 'future classrooms', designed eco-bird feeders, made environmental pledges and pledges to help others, and finally we have written a new European Studies Module to add to our curriculum.
On Tuesday Dec 1st, at 10am we are hosting a 1 hour live event to mark the conclusion of the project. It will be a live event presented by each of our partner schools and features our older pupils reflecting on their experiences.

Everyone started to feel Christmassy this week (a little early I know), with a couple of beautiful, although very cold days. The children have really enjoyed playing with the ice and frost, recreating Narnia, making fairy houses or trying to stay on their feet playing football. Certainly break duty has been more pleasurable standing in a sunbeam and watching them all enjoying themselves so much. This week I also want to say how much we appreciate Miss Denmead. She had a couple of days out with illness this week and we all realised just how much she does normally - and always with a smile on her face!

This week Owl Class have experimented with insulation and have been improving their hockey skills whilst the sun was shining. In history they have been fascinated to look through the 1841 and 1851 census returns for Sherborne. They will each be following a household through time and finding out how life and occupations changed for Sherborne residents during the Victorian era .
Fox Class have continued to learn about life during the second world war and have been out and about exploring the pond area, especially interesting in this icy weather. They have been very inspired by their class book, 'The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe', which is being used with their writing and which has spilt over into imaginative play!
The youngest children have had a lovely week, almost getting caught in the rain on Monday during PE and Forest School and being very creative acting out 'The Three Bears' - having a bubble bath! Separately, they have all been impressing Mrs Baxter with their mental maths skills and have very much enjoyed practising these.
