Week four sees our Reception pupils in full time, 8.50 – 3.15. We are delighted to see how the older pupils have been  getting to know their names and taking care of them in the playground. This caring attitutude is something we are very proud of at Sherborne. This coming week sees our first sporting tournament of the year – quicksticks hockey, so we will continue to promote the #YesUCan message across all our curriculum.

Forest School

One afternoon a week all class 1 attend ‘Forest School’ in the neighbouring National Trust woods where we have a dedicated roped off area of woodland. With a member of staff trained to lead ‘forest schools’, children get up to all sorts of activities from building dens to researching mini beasts. ‘Forest school’ follows an exciting curriculum designed for exploring the great outdoors. In addition, the whole school has links with National Trust rangers, who teach them interesting skills such as dry stone walling and bush craft.
