Thank you Doncaster Stories

Today we feel really lucky as Doncaster Stories, the Children’s University and the Doncaster Opportunity area have provided all KS2 children with bags and craft resources to take part in the Doncaster Reading Miles challenge!

All Children in years 3, 4, 5 and 6 are being encouraged to read at least 10 minutes a day and to work their way round their Doncaster map, earning stickers as they reach their destination.

Completing the map will count towards the Children’s University graduation and will earn the children certificates.

We are also going to have our own friendly competition in school.

Supporting our local mining memorial

Dennis, the lovely gentleman in charge of Markham main mining memorial, personally invited these three children back to the gardens along with numerous other schools in our area. He wanted to share our anthology of poems with them as he wanted to inspire other schools to write their own. We were so proud when Dennis read out our poem in front of the newspaper representative as well as numerous ex miners and other schools! The children also really enjoyed listening to the Markham main band!

What an amazing crew!

We [Crew Marshmello] have just had an amazing crew session about keeping safe online. The children, yet again, amazed me with their thoughtful comments about how to keep safe – tell parents, talk about things that make you feel uncomfortable as well as what to share/not share on line.

Crew Boseman and Branson also came into class and said they too enjoyed the session. Well done everyone!

Giving back to our mining community…

Today, Noah, Lola and Agrima represented crew 5/6 and took the money we raised for Markham Main mining memorial to Dennis along with copies of our anthology of poems. The poems will be placed on a plaque to go inside the memorial garden. We feel proud of our mining community and we desperately wanted to give something back to them once we had learnt all about the miners and how they shaped Doncaster in our last Expedition. The sponsored walk was an amazing way to raise funds and we’d like to thank everyone who took part and sponsored our pupils. The anthology of poems are available to purchase for £1 each and the money raised will be donated to Markham Main. We are so proud of you all 5/6!

We are Scientists!

5W have been keeping up the great work this week! We have taken part in some more Science experiments. This week we delved into exploring what happens to different solutes when mixed with water. We found that some solutes such as sugar dissolved whereas others like pepper and gravy granules had a different effect on the water. The children learnt a lot about scientific vocabulary and had a fantastic time reflecting on what they learnt.
