English Open Morning (Years 1 to 6)

Parents and carers came into school in order to observe the children in Years 1 – 6 writing an array of limericks. The visitors were provided with a feast of talent as the children excelled, demonstrating how to captivate an audience by using rhythm and rhyme to their fullest extent. As ever, the children enjoyed seeing the adults involved with the teaching and learning. Thank you to all who were able to attend; your support is very much appreciated. 

Here is some of the parental feedback from the day:


 ‘I love how kind and warm the atmosphere is in Sherington. All the children are focussed, excited and inspired. It’s a privilege to see them being taught in their environment.’

‘Great class participation. Fantastic learning (for me too!). Terrific engagement of class. Warm welcome for parents. Real sense of purpose and achievement.’


‘Enjoyed seeing the children work collaboratively and having fun with words.’
