Children In Need – Online donations available!

We are supporting BBC Children in Need 2019 in school on Friday 15 November. We will be having a non-uniform day, children can wear something sporty or spotty as we get active to support the charity. We have set up a school donations page which can be accessed using the link below or via Our Schools App or by cash.

We will also be having a bake sale in school, if any parents/Carers can spare time to bake buns with your child this week please bring them in on Friday morning and send children with 25p to purchase a cupcake at break times. All monies raised will go towards school funds!

Thank you all for your ongoing support!

Doncaster Floods – Can you help our appeal?

As everybody will be aware flooding has affected different parts of the country over the last few days. Sadly, communities close to our school have and continue to be affected. Many families now find themselves away from their homes with minimal belongings and this includes a family that attends Plover.

We would like to help our neighbouring communities as best we can and are asking for donations of bedding, blankets, children’s clothing, toiletries, non perishable foods such as tins and cereals, bottled water and anything else you think may be of use.

You can bring items to school anytime this week, donations will be stored in the small hall and we will arrange to deliver goods at regional drop off points around the Doncaster area.

Thank you in advance of your support as we try to assist those in need.

Golden tokens to be found!

When KS2 were given their free book, inside was a golden token which could be exchanged for another free book at the library. These tokens were also hidden around Doncaster Town Centre and there are still many to be found. Perhaps you could try and find one this weekend! Here’s a clue…have a look around the Civic and Cultural Quarter. Let me know if you find any!

In addition to this, the final day to bring back library forms is Wednesday 13th November. These will then be taken and exchanged for library cards. The cards will allow you to borrow up to 12 books totally free of charge at any one time. Don’t worry if you’ve lost your form. These are still available at the office.

Swimming with plastic!

The Year 6 children have been well and truly hooked into our new cycle of writing! Today, they had the opportunity to swim with plastic at Armthorpe baths to take on the perspective of sea creatures, swimming in our plastic filled seas.
I am so impressed with the discussions and suggestions the children were having and how hooked in they were to their learning. The children reflected during the session and it was so powerful to see how this experience has impacted them. I can’t wait to read the awesome poetry that I know is going to come from today’s hook!
Well done Year 6, you have made us very proud!

5p challenge!


We are setting the children a challenge to help raise money for the Year 6 London trip and school funds! The class who fills the bottle first with 5ps gets £75 for a class treat and every other class there after will receive £25 for a class treat! The remaining money will be spilt and go towards school funds and the London trip! Come on 6B!

(This is expected to be a long term fundraiser across the year)

We are on our way home!

On behalf of the staff who attended RobinWood this weekend, we would like to thank the children again for such a fabulous weekend! They really have been awesome and they are all buzzing on the bus; sharing stories with one another!

We shall see you all shortly- our estimated time of arrival is 4:35

 

Lots of fun this morning

All groups have had so much fun this morning! Some groups have been caving and trying archery and others have been canoeing and raft building!

We have tried our best to ensure all children who can have their photos taken are uploaded to the blog fairly. We have taken hundreds of photos which we will share with you at the photo event and there will be an opportunity to purchase a disk with all of the photos on for a very small cost so the children can keep the photos/memories forever.

The photo event date will be confirmed tomorrow (we are aiming for the week commencing the 14th October).

The children are just having a break and a snack before getting ready for their final activity. We will then be having dinner and heading home.

The children are so excited to share with you lots of funny stories and great experiences!

Team avalanche!

Here are #teamavalanche’s photos from yesterday! They had so much fun on the zip line, caving and during the crate challenge.

The children are just getting ready for breakfast. They are all packed up ready for their final activities this morning.

We will see you all later today!
