Our school challenge next week is to recreate a famous portrait. Use your imagination and get creative. Involve your family members if you want, but pick your picture, strike a pose and get snapping!
I chose a portrait by Holbein (a Tudor Artist) to copy, but you can choose any artist and style.
Have a look at the website for some brilliant examples!
Email a copy of the original portrait and your new version to me: email@example.com or to Miss Blackham: firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday 28th May
Y5/6 played at GOAL! football centre in Wheatley this afternoon in a football tournament that saw 32 schools from all over Doncaster compete for the shield and go on to represent Doncaster in the South Yorkshire finals.
The team played well and got off to a fantastic start winning their first group game. Playing some fantastic football. Although they lost their second game, they continued to play well and never gave up. The final group game saw them draw 0-0 and were unlucky not to get the win with several shots just going wide of the goal and the opposition goalie saving some of them.
Plover came 2nd in the qualifying group of 4 and continued their journey in the main competition. Unfortunately the result didn’t go our way but once again the played some fantastic football.
Line up as follows:
Josh / Lucas / Lucas / Lucas / Taylor / Maison / Xavier
As is in previous years, the last week of the school year will be Sports Week at Plover Primary School. This year we will be putting on a range of sporting activities for the children as well as hosting sports days for each Key Stage.
To launch the event we have the athlete Eden Francis visiting us on Monday 15th July in the morning. Eden is looking to represent Great Britain in the Tokyo Olympics next year. The sponsor form you have received from your child will partly go towards help Eden’s training for the Olympics as well as providing the school with sports equipment.
On Monday 15th July all children will come to school in their PE kits. Class teachers will then inform the children about arrangements for the rest of the week.
During the course of the week, children will learn a sport from another culture/country which will enable them to have a totally unique sporting experience. In addition to that the children will also take part in inter-house / inter-team competitions. These competitions will vary from year group to year group but will including inter-house cricket, inter-house rounders, etc.
Also during the week there will be the traditional sports day. The times are as follows:
Foundation Stage Monday 15th July 9.15am Key Stage 1 Thursday 18th July 1.20pm Key Stage 2 Monday 15th July 1.20pm
You are more than welcome to attend the event and we look forward to seeing you there!
