With England’s fantastic result in the Quarter Finals on Saturday. We here at Plover are going to show our support by having a England themed non-uniform day on Wednesday, as England are playing in the Semi-Final on Wednesday evening!
If you don’t have England kits, don’t worry, you can wear other football shirts, PE/sports clothes or something red and white to represent England!
Despite the speed at which you need to move you hands to sign ‘This is me’, 6H and those of 6B who joined them today were so resilient. It was great to see everyone give this challenging song a go … we will be experts!
Today we managed to raise £60 on our ice pop sale so thank you so much to everyone who bought one. Some children were too excited to eat their ice pops that they didn’t want a photo. We know some children had forgotten their money so please don’t worry, we will be selling ice pops again next week. -Miss Blackham
If your child would like to submit an entry (and there are fantastic prizes to be won). Please bring your entry to 6B by Tuedsay 25th May and we will send your entries off on your behalf. 5 crew coins to everyone that gets involved!
Children across school have been reading and quizzing to be entered to win a box of 6 Dunkin Donuts. Your teachers are incredibly proud of the effort you have put into reading over the past few weeks!
Due to success of this competition, we have decided to run the competition again! There will be a winner from each class and every time you read (and quiz for those children in KS2) in school or at home, you will be entered into the draw!
You have from Friday 26th February until Thursday 26th March to enter. Winners will be announced in Pride of Plover assembly on Friday 27th March, with the winners bringing their boxes of donuts home from school with them!
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!
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!
We have had a lovely half term term. Mostly it has just been four children and two or three staff to work with them. The Key Stage 2 children have been enjoying their topic “Natural Disasters”. We have watched fascinating video clips about volcanoes, tsunamis and floods. We have made salt dough volcanoes and erupted these using bicarbonate of soda and vinegar. We have also made edible volcanoes from chocolate crispy cake mixture and coloured icing. They were fun.
We have done some art work on The Great Wave and we enjoyed our colour mixing to make different shades of blue and green for the ocean. We also enjoyed colour mixing when we painted volcanoes for our wall display.
We have enjoyed a range of baking and making activities. We particularly liked making slime. It was good fun stretching it! Have a look at the photos -that was a fun afternoon!
We have continued to work hard in our speech therapy sessions and we are getting familiar with meeting Mrs Allardyce, our Deaf Instructor, on ‘Google Hangout’ too. The snow has added to our enjoyment of playing outside and we have managed to do some art work in the snow using powder paints, as well as make snow angels and build a snowman!
