 Land Ahoy! - The First Topic of 2018/19

 Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum! Arrr... me hearties, - it's a sailor's life for me¬

Get your sea legs on, it's time to sail the salty seas. Navigate, investigate and explore the world - just like Captain Blackbeard.

Our topic will take us on a journey around the world focusing on the routes of famous explorers such as Captain Cook and Christopher Columbus. We will be finding out what life was like on board a ship and making applications to join Captain Blackbeard's crew!

Our topic will cover a variety of objectives including:

  • using and making maps
  • significant historical people
  • locating and naming countries, cities and seas

Until August 28th there is an exhibition at the British Library, London all about Captain Cook  www.bl.uk/events/james-cook-the-voyages

Our Christian Value in Year 2!

 
This year, Year Two will be working  as ambassadors for the Christian Value "Courage". Throughout the year we will be exploring the other values adopted by Sherrier pupils but we will be focusing on what it means to be a courageous in class, on the playground and at home. If your child impresses you with how courageous they've been at home do share this with us by making a note in their Boomerang book so that we can celebrate it in class.
 
 
In class we will be talking about the value of courage...
 
   Courage to own up when you are in the wrong
   Courage to say 'no' when everyone else is pressing you to do something you do not want to do
   Courage to stick at a task even when it is taking time and is beginning to become boring or difficult
   Courage to be first to volunteer or stand up and be counted
   Courage to admit you don't know or understand something
   Courage to stand by your beliefs despite mockery or being in a minority
   Courage to take part in something, to give it a go, although you are fearful and unsure of yourself
 

Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. Christopher Robin to Pooh (by A.A. Milne)
 
Courage is not simply one of the virtues, but the form of every virtue at the testing point.C.S. Lewis
