Wonderful World Book Day

It has been a week since World Book Day, and I thought it would be lovely to look back and remember what a great day it was.

The website has been updated with photographs, so head over there if you want to linger over the pictures a little longer.

But for a whistle-stop tour of the day, check out our video…..

Wonderful World Book Day

We had a great day celebrating books at Plover. There were all sorts of characters walking around from Gangsta Granny to Mr and Mrs Twit; Mary Poppins and Wonky Donkey; Little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf in Grandma’s clothing- plus lots, lots more!

We had lots of potato photos for the potato character competition and some great reviews on the Padlet – check out the books that have been recommended – they are bound to make you LOL!

Our Masked Reader competition was very popular – well done to Harper in 4G for correctly identifying all 20 of the Masked Readers

We have lots of photos of the day so check out our World Book Day Website for many more: https://sites.google.com/ploverschool.co.uk/ploverworldbookday2021/home

LKS2 Shout Out

I just wanted to say a big well done to Year 3 and 4 today. Teachers and staff have been seeking me out to tell me how pleased they have been with the effort you have made in class and online.
Mrs Foster was blown away about how kind, polite and helpful to each other the Year 4 pupils were with each other online today.

Miss Topliss couldn’t wait to show me the poetry created by Year 3, brilliantw collaboration!

And to top it all off – I loved dancing the water cycle with Year 3!

Well done guys – that’s proper Plover Crew!

Explosive Expedition for LKS2

Year 3 and 4 had a great time on Friday afternoon, seeing how effective their volcanoes were at exploding and here are some of the highlights…..


Well done to everyone that took part in school and at home – the smiles on faces and squeals of excitement were brilliant!

Who wants to win a box of Dunkin Doughnuts?

It all starts by reading a book to be in with a chance to win a box of doughnuts delivered to your door or in school.

Excellent Experts and Emotional Experiences!

What a really interesting couple of days we have had in Year 3 and 4 with our expert visitors.

We had the really informative talk from Claire at the Canals and Rivers Trust yesterday. She helped us to understand the causes of flooding and ways that we can protect people from flooding.

Then, today, we had an emotional talk from Mrs Poncia, who was flooded out of her home in 2019 during the Fishlake Floods. She gave us a very personal account of everything her family went through, including photographs and video clips. The talk was brilliant preparation for the poetry writing we are going to do next week – I am really looking forward to getting started and I think the children are too!

We recorded both talks, so if you were unable to join them live, you can see them on the Experts and Visitors page of our Expedition Website. Access the website by following this link:https://sites.google.com/ploverschool.co.uk/plover-y3-4-natural-disasters/home

Well done everyone who has been working so hard, in school and at home, keep going, you are making your teachers proud.

Thursday 28th January

Good Morning


Big shout out to everyone who took part in the talk about floods from the Canal and Rivers Trust. I was so impressed by the brilliant contributions and how you took part.

I am really looking forward to this afternoon, when my friend, Mrs Poncia, is going to talk to us about her experience during the Fishlake Flood of 2019. You will get a join code to join the Google Meet starting at 1:15. It will really help with our poetry writing.

Well done for the work you have been submitting and keep working hard
