📖Book Parade📖
By Sarah

Last week on Friday 24th, November, we had a book parade. There were many interesting costumes. It was a very awesome day. During the parade,  we saw a lot of wizards. “It was nice seeing everyone in costumes for the last time,” said Jiwon in Year Six. It is the last time that the Year Six students got to dress up as their favourite book character.

Sherwoods New Beehive Project
By Grace

A beehive for leaf cutter bees had finally came into Sherwood Primary’s Enviro garden. We are so excited to introduce you to the beehive that has been donated from New World.

The beehive is for leafcutter bees that do not sting because the are not that strong and protective about their honey unlike honey bees. So if they sting it won't be a huge deal. We made our own beehive and it was really fun and fascinating. We also learnt a lot by making the beehive such as the leafcutter bees make their own cocoon and they come out when in becomes 23 degrees celcius. We hope that they come out and start hibernating quickly for the flowers and wish them good luck!

Stu Duval
By Isabella

It was Book Week from the 20th - 24th of November at Sherwood School! To celebrate we had Stu Duval, an amazing New Zealand author and illustrator. He illustrates his own books while writing them - WOW! He tells stories in year groups and each is different to suit the age level. He also did cartoon lessons to some age groups. He sold books for the price of $20. They were signed! Levon was one lucky student who bought a signed book. He said, “I’ve started reading ‘The Yeti Hunter’ and it is gripping". Everyone is excited for book week next year!

Athletics day!
By Hyun and Jimin
Athletics day is an annual day we have at Sherwood Primary School. They are a few activities that we do in age groups. There is Sprints, High Jump/Fun events, Long Jump, Quoit throw and Shot put. Jimin said, “I like Sprints the best because I came 1st  and I came 3rd in Quoits and you use your muscles and push the heavy shot put.” Before athletics day finishes, the class relays take place. This is when each class does a relay race with 6 people in each class- 3 boys and 3 girls. Hyun commented that, “Athletics day was one of our best days at Sherwood.” Tahlia enjoyed her day and said, “It was a challenging yet fun day and I hope future children at Sherwood have a great Athletics day too.” Grace said, “Athletics day this year was amazing.” Thank you so much to Mr Smart for his wonderful organisation.
