As part of the maths curriculum, Pine class¬†have been building up to a trip to Woodfields Den to set up their own class shop. They spent the weeks leading up to the trip making things to sell, including decorated plant pots, magnets, bookmarks, key rings and soaps.
Pine class set up a stall outside of Woodfields Den charity shop and sold their creations to the general¬†public to raise money for the school. All pupils got involved with the customers, taking money and giving change. Pine class made an impressive ¬£24.50.
On the¬†18th July the school held their annual summer sports day.
This year each class designed their own personalised t-shirt to wear on the day. The designs were fantastic!
The sporting events were spilt into 2 sessions. For the first part of the morning pupils had a chance to try sessions which helped with throwing, kicking and balancing whilst at the same time encouraging cross- curriculum links (to help with maths, colour matching and working with a partner or group)
The¬†second part of the morning saw pupils participate in some of the more¬†traditional races.¬† The morning finished with several staff races (with lots of cheating) with the pupils cheering on staff.
The sports day was a fantastic success and an excellent way to finish the school year.
More than 40 fellow students, former students, governors and staff were there to wish the four leavers who were able to come all the best for the future.¬† A disco was provided by Darren of D and H Entertainment and a buffet was laid on by the Dunstable.
We were delighted to have a professional photographer, Chris Taylor, to take pictures of all the guests, some of which will be made into a montage which will be presented to the leavers at their leaving assembly ¬†on Wednesday 23rd July at 10.00am.

Thanks to all who made the evening such a success.
On the 2nd July the school participated in the Active ¬†Norfolk School Games at the UEA. For many, this is seen as the highlight of the sporting calendar. The event allows all¬†special schools to get together to complete in Olympic style games.
The day started by pupils competing in various¬†track and field events. Pupils took part in long jump, shot putt, javelin, sprints and relays.¬†¬†Sheringham Woodfields School¬†won Silver in Shot-putt and Javelin. The relay was a chance for some of our younger students to show off¬†their skills¬†which resulted in a fantastic¬†bronze medal.
The afternoon¬†session included¬†archery, rowing and table cricket. We had yet another success with silver medal¬†in the rowing competition.
The school will be closed to pupils on Thursday 10th July 2014 due to a number of staff taking industrial action. Passenger Transport and NORSE have been informed. We are open for staff that are not taking industrial action.
We shall be open as usual on Friday 11th July 2014.
