World Book Day – Friday 5th March

World Book Day will be celebrated in school and at home on Friday 5th March. We would love all children to get involved in the fun. This year, the theme of World Book Day will be ‘Books That Make You LOL’. We would like to invite all children to dress up as a character from a book that makes them laugh. There will be prizes up for grabs for the most creative efforts put into a costume.
Please see our exciting World Book Day Google Site for all the information you will need for the big day!

World Book Day

World Book Day will be celebrated in school and at home on Friday 5th March. We would love all children to get involved in the fun. This year, the theme of World Book Day will be ‘Books That Make You LOL’. We would like to invite all children to dress up as a character from a book that makes them laugh. There will be prizes up for grabs for the most creative efforts put into a costume.
There will be a ‘decorate a potato challenge’ which we invite everyone to have a go at. You can decorate a potato as a character from any book or even decorate several potatoes if you are making a scene from a book. We also will have a competition just for fun based on the TV show, ‘The Masked Singer’. Staff have hidden their identities behind books and you will be using the clues to discover who is behind the mask!
Vouchers will be emailed to all parents and carers for the World Book Day £1 books. These will take the place of the normal paper vouchers. Some shops are requesting paper copies of the vouchers so please check before spending the voucher. If you find you need a paper copy but do not have access to a printer, please let your child’s teacher know and they will print you a copy.
We can’t wait to see your costumes and celebrate with you!

Plover school sharing the love 💗

I am so proud of all of the children who contributed to the Santander ‘thank key workers’ valentines display. This is the display so far and I am sure you will all agree, it looks beautiful! Keep an eye out for the video of all the contributions, which will be coming very soon! Well done everyone!

School places

This is a reminder to all families who have children starting school in September either in nursery or reception to apply for a place if you haven’t done so already. Please remind friends and family if they haven’t applied also.

We have 15 hour and 30 hour places available in nursery. 30 hour funded places are usually from 9-3 and 15 hour places either in a morning or an afternoon. However, if this doesn’t meet your child care requirements please let us know and we will try to accommodate where we can.

We are able to offer places in nursery for those children who will be moving up to reception in September. This will enable children to make friends with the children they will be with in September.

If your child was 3 before Christmas then they can also start as an early starter in nursery now.

If they are 3 between January and April then they could start as an early starter after the Easter holidays.

EYFS children are usually able to access before and after school paid provision and clubs. Due to the pandemic however these are currently not running.

If you are interested in a nursery or reception place and would like more information please contact the school office.

Thank you

Mrs Price
