Owl Class have been treated to more excellent lessons from our student Miss Goodinson, who has been taking them through division techniques, making geographical brochures and conducting more science experiments. In between her lessons they have also been creating haiku, practising art techniques , sewing and listening to gramophone records! It's been a fun week!
Term 2 Week 2 - Nov 13th 2020
As part of our 'life skills' curriculum, we held our first session, learning how to sew on buttons. We chose to teach this skill through making poppies, which were then worn to mark Remembrance. Mrs Baxter arranged the materials and templates and pupils then impressed us with their developing sewing skills.
Classes visited the memorial briefly and observed a 2 minute silence at 11 o'clock. Isabel from Owl Class laid a wreath at the memorial; an ancestor of hers is named on it, as is a former pupil of the school.
Pupils understood why the poppy is a symbol of remembrance and showed their respect for those who have been killed or injured through war.
This week each class took time out on Wednesday to mark remembrance day
As part of our 'Sherborne for Life' traditions, all pupils who join our school make a pebble pet, to represent them whilst they are a pupil here. When they leave they take this pebble with them as a reminder that they will always be welcomed back and always be a part of our Sherborne community. See our new pupil pebbles here.

Mr Moore continues to improve thankfully and we look forward to welcoming him back to school as soon as he is fit and well. In both his and Mrs Finley's absence, I have had the opportunity to work in all three classes, which has been a great pleasure for me. I am so proud of each and every pupil, who not only work hard, but who smile, laugh and help each other every day.
Fox class have shown great adaptability and resilience this week, whilst adjusting to a few different teachers each day. Mrs Finley has certainly brought out their very kind natures as they all rushed to help me and others when water was spilt and pen pots tumbled over - they also wrote some great information texts about hedgehogs and produced some charcoal sketches of the school, which showed some very promising skills as well as a lot of charcoal dust!
This week, Mrs Baxter has been delighted to watch her pupils thinking and debating hard about a timeline of The Great Fire of London. Developing our young children to really question and think for themselves, is very important. She was was also impressed to see how they approached their sewing earlier in the week and they have continued to enjoy their Forest School, PE and science lessons on Mondays.
