Thursday 2nd July

Good morning everyone,

Well, my clock says it’s morning anyway but my eyes tell me it is bedtime.

I hope you enjoyed day one of your transition lessons yesterday, despite the few teething issues there were with access etc.  I hope everything runs a little smoother for you all today.

Please remember there is no expectation to complete learning from Plover for the next two days but come next week I expect to be hearing from you all again.

Shout out to Dominik, yet again, for sending me copies of his transition learning.

Have a great day everyone.

Mrs H 🙂

Year 6 transition info

Doncaster council’s transition team have confirmed that on the letter sent out directly to all Year 6 children that it says you must create a gmail account for children to access the school classroom and they can not use their primary school email. Therefore, you have two options when completing transition work. You can access the work directly from your child’s secondary school website and email the work to their class teachers to pass on or you must set up a gmail account and then follow the instructions on the letter.
If you have any questions or issues please email me and I’ll forward to the transition team to support you further.

Year 6 Leavers 2020

As the end of the year approaches we would like to share our plans for our Year 6 leavers celebrations. Whilst it is not the plans we all hoped for, we do hope it gives everybody the opportunity to say goodbye and share many primary school memories.

We have provisionally planned this for Wednesday the 15th July at 1:30pm. However, this is weather permitting due to it being an outdoor event.

Whilst there will be some seats available if needed, we thought it would be a nice idea to invite families to bring a picnic blanket along with some afternoon treats.  We have arranged for an ice-cream van to visit us during the event and our Year 6 children will be treated to an ice-cream.  Ice-creams will be available to buy for other family members should you wish to.

We would like the children to be able to take part in traditional shirt signing and will therefore have tables set up where they will leave their shirts. Please ensure you bring a shirt on the day if your child wishes to participate in the shirt signing. There will be tables designated for each class which will be supervised by the class teacher.  Shirts will be labelled with the child’s name so others can see whose shirt they are signing. Children will collect a pen on arrival and this will be disposed of once they have finished signing shirts. Hand sanitizer will be available at each table with children being invited a few at a time to sign the shirts whilst following a one way system.

Children will also have the opportunity to take socially distanced photographs with their friends as well as a small presentation ceremony.

As part of the preparations for the event, we would like to ask for your support by sharing any photos of your child from their first days at primary school through to Year 6.  Please can any photos be sent to ablackham@ploverschool.co.uk by Monday 6th July at 4pm.  Please could you also email any short videos of your child marching to the song called ‘Amarillo’. We hope to share these videos by email for you and your child to treasure forever!  Please email me by Monday 6th July should you not wish for photographs of your child to be included in the celebration and shared with others.

Finally, if any parents would like to send a video wishing their child good luck for next year, please email me too! 

We look forward to seeing you at the event and if you have any questions in the meantime, feel free to contact me.

Regards, Miss Blackham

It’s the last day of June already!

Where on Earth has the time gone? How is it July tomorrow?

I hope you are all well despite the miserable weather – I really am a sun baby and love to bask in it – with protection on my skin of course!

Today is your last day of Plover learning for this week.  Please remember it’s transition learning from Wednesday to Friday and that first impressions are incredibly important.

I’m in school all five days this week so I don’t think I will have the opportunity to do a class hang out – sorry Cailey, Dominik and Kyren who always login to these.

Have a great day everyone!

Mrs H 🙂

 

Good morning!

Good morning! I love seeing pictures of what you all get up to. Luke and Liam had lots of fun in the sun before the rain came down this weekend! Please keep sending your photos in!
Remember your work is on google classrooms, we love seeing pictures of your work too!
If you have any questions regarding transition this week, please pop me an email and I’ll be happy to help!
Have a lovely day everyone and stay safe!

Pride of Plover Time

So, who am I going to award the Pride of Plover certificate to this week?

Well, it is someone who works incredibly hard all of the time.

It is someone who is so very kind, I wish I could be like them.

This person is quite quiet but has developed an awesome sense of humour over the last year or so.

He is always on hangouts and submits as much learning as he possibly can every day.

He has struggled with the heat this week – so much so that his brain melted during maths on Wednesday and he struggled to find the correct answers – but he persevered and succeeded!

Well done Dominik – you really are a star young man.

Mrs H 🙂

 

Friday 26th June 2020

Good morning everyone,

I hope you have all managed to get some sleep over the last few nights – the heat has certainly kept me awake.

Thank you, as always to those of you who regularly check in and submit your learning.

Did you see the picture that Cailey asked me to upload to our classroom stream yesterday?  It’s of her dog and is soooooooo cute!  If not, check it out.

Check the blog out again in about half an hour and I will announce this week’s Pride of Plover winner.

Have a great day guys.

Mrs H 🙂
