Coronavirus Update

Tuesday 2nd June 2020

Good morning Parents,

School reopens today for children of Key Workers and Vulnerable children. Following advice from Lancashire County Council, School will not open to EYFS, Y1 and Y6 at this stage. We currently have 5 groups of Key Worker children attending school and a number of planned changes to provision will be implemented from today. We plan to carefully review and assess these measures over the next two weeks.

If your child is currently attending school, please read the Letter and Guidance below. Please note, that there is not currently a crossing patrol. We therefore ask that all children are walked across the road with an adult for drop off and collection.

If you require a school place because you are a key worker and your child is not currently attending school, please email admin@sherwood.lancs.sch.uk

 

Remote Learning and Learning in School

Our Teachers have planned a range Curriculum Themes for this half term. Following your feedback, we will provide one overview for learning for the whole week. This will be available each Monday on our remote learning pages. Please see our Learning Themes Overview below for a taste of what's to come!

Please request new remote learning books through our Year Group emails. We now deliver books each Wednesday as required. 

 

Behaviour Policy Update

In response to current Health and Safety guidance, our behaviour policy has required some amendment.

Children in school are regularly reminded of the following:

  • We will keep our distance from one another as much as possible
  • We will wash our hands thoroughly and regularly throughout the day   
  • We will walk sensibly through school, on the left-hand side
  • We will stay in our Learning and Play Zones until told otherwise
  • We will Catch it, Bin it, Kill it!

 

Going for Gold!

We are always exceptionally proud of Sherwood children, and we continue to be proud of the effort we're seeing in school and at home. This half term, all Sherwood children are challenged to Go for Gold! The following rewards will be used in School and we'd love our children at home to take part too.

EYFS – Year 3

Children in Foundation and Years 1, 2, 3 will now be awarded Rainbow Points! These are a positive reward for good work or effort as well as kindness. Staff will be awarding Rainbow Points in school, or through email for those sending work from home; 1 or 2 Rainbow Points for good work or effort and 3 or 4 when exceptional. Children colour a section of their rainbow for every 5 Rainbow Points achieved. On completion of their rainbow, they receive their Pot of Gold; a Gold Certificate presented to them if in school, or posted home.

Red – 5 points

Orange – 10 points

Yellow – 15 points

Green – 20 points

Blue – 25 points

Indigo – 30 points

Violet – 35 points!

Please feel free to use this system as part of your own rewards at home. A blank rainbow can be downloaded below or you could make your own! Please notify us when your child has reached their pot of Gold and we can organise their Certificate to celebrate.

Years 4-6

Our reward system for children in Years 4, 5 & 6 has continued to be the use of House Points. These are a positive reward for good work, effort and kindness. Staff will be awarding House Points in school, or through email for those sending work from home; 1 or 2 House Points for good work or effort and 3 or 4 when exceptional. When 50 House Points have been achieved, children will receive a Gold Certificate in School or which will arrive through the post. House Points can be marked off with a runner moving along the track to finally win gold!

Headteacher Awards will continue to be Awarded Weekly, please keep your eye on our Newsletter for these Weekly Awards.

Year 6 Leavers' Year Book

This year, we are inviting all of our Year 6 pupils to help produce a special Year Book to mark and celebrate their achievement at Primary School. Please visit the Year 6 remote learning page for all the details.

 

A question to ask at home

Our Team are feeling re-energised after half term and ready for the seven weeks ahead.

Keep going everyone - we've come this far and I'm confident that the Sherwood spirit will carry us all through the next half term! If we were in an assembly now, I would be asking the children, which one of the Sherwood Values means 'keep going'? Perhaps you could try this at home to find out the answer!

My kindest regards to all our families,

Jodie Lumb
