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.
Thank you so much to those who have signed and returned their consent form for the Harry Potter studios tour. As we need to act quickly to secure our tour, we are only able to book places for those children who have returned their slips by Friday.
We will be raising funds for the children’s tea at the service station on our trip by selling bacon/sausage sandwiches next Friday to 5/6 children. Please remember your £2 next Friday to secure your sandwich. We will also continue to fundraise this summer towards further leavers celebrations. Thank you so much for supporting these fantastic opportunities for your children.
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! -Miss Blackham
Well done to Treasure…this week’s yellow T-Shirt winner in 6H. He always work so hard. He loves to spend time with his friends, reading to them and having them read to him. His infectious laughter echos around the classroom and he always brightens up our day.
I’m so impressed by this group of children: they have all been awarded Plover Postcards at some point this week for a variety of different reasons and they are so proud of their achievements! Well done guys. Go Crew Piper!
On Friday 14th May, we will be celebrating Pyjamarama Day in school. Children are invited to come to school in their pyjamas for a suggested donation of £1. The aim of the day is to raise awareness of the importance of a bedtime story for all children. Donations will go to the National Book Trust, who use the money to help all children have a story in their homes to read. Children will be participating in some fun activities in school on this day, all linked to reading for pleasure.
Today we have been scientists again and have been making predictions about which substances we thought would dissolve in cold water. We were impressed with how accurate we were in our predictions and decided that in order for some of the solutes dissolve properly, hot water would be needed as a solvent instead of cold.
A special shout out to Adam who challenged himself to ensure inclusion of the scientific terminology he was introduced to today within his writing. What a star!
