This week Owl Class have been working on Scratch mazes and choirs, developing their fraction knowledge, writing newspaper articles and producing leaflets about European countries which involved giving presentations. Added to which they have also made their own ice-cream whilst learning about irreversible changes in science. How I wish I was a child again!
Term 2 Week 3 - Nov 20th 2020
After exploring every possible way to hold remote, online meetings, Mrs Parker and I eventually managed to set up MSTeams meetings with parents this week.
Some parents had trouble with connections and some had no video, or couldn't see us! Thankfully, all who connected could hear and were able to find out just how wonderful their children have been this term, how hard working, and how positive. As always, please rest assured that we will take forward any concerns, and act upon them swiftly.
If you are a parent who was unable to connect, or who otherwise missed an appointment, please contact the office in the first instance. Staff have very little free time, but will endeavour to make an opportunity for a catch-up when possible.
Our current Erasmus Project 'Sharing our Past; Shaping our Future', draws to a close next month. To celebrate all we achieved, we will be holding a live webinar for parents on the 1st December. More details will follow next week, including how to log in to the webinar. In the meantime, scan here to visit the project website.

This week we welcomed back Mr Moore in a part-time capacity, as he continues his recovery. We were all very glad to have him back and the children are really looking forward to a 'Mr Moore Assembly' - it has been missed - my tiger impressions are just not the same! We continue to be very grateful for your understanding during this time. Thank you for your patience and thank you to all the staff who have been covering each other lately; I am especially grateful to our student, Miss Goodinson.
This week Fox Class have continued to entertain Mrs Parker with their 'sound' and 'music' lessons. In history they have been really amazing, learning about WWII and finding out about their ancestors who were in the war. Alex's great-grandmother helped refugees in Finland escape from their burning homes and Ruby's great grandfather served in the home-guard in Sherborne. Orlando, Alex and Arthur gave some wonderful drama performances, 'interviewing' their relatives and really thinking about what it must have been like to live through a world war.
This week, the Hedgehog class have been sorting materials in science and have been thoroughly enjoying themselves during their Forest School sessions. In history they too have been finding out about hardships, but this time about the Great Fire of London. They have been 'hot-seating' as occupants of Pudding Lane. They then wrote about it for our new Erasmus newspaper. Reception have looked at seasonal changes and have begun to write some simple sentences.
