To our lovely year 6’s

We want to wish all of our lovely Year 6’s all the luck in the world as they take their next steps in life to secondary school! Thank you all for being fabulous young people and making us all at Plover so proud every day! We are going to miss you so much next year and we can’t wait to celebrate with you later. Here are two little videos I’ve put together for you. So please watch them, enjoy and we’ll see you at 1:30 for our picnic!

 

 

Meet Your New Teacher!

As this school year comes to an end, we start to think ahead to next year. Our children have been informed who their teacher is going to be next year, had the chance to find out a little bit about them and are hopefully writing about themselves to share with their new teacher.

School restrictions during Covid-19 have made it impossible to complete the transition activities we would normally put in place to support your child with their move to their new class, however we would like to offer all children the opportunity to meet with their new children ‘virtually’.

We have arranged Google Meets on Thursday and Friday with all of our teachers. We have tried where possible to offer two times to avoid clashing times with classes and to provide some choice – children do not need to join both Google Meets.

Meeting joining codes will be shared via email and Google classroom.

Transition online issues

Good morning all, there have been a few technical issues with transition this morning. Transition is being set up by Doncaster Council and not us personally. Therefore, we are unable to sort the problem directly ourselves. Until the issue is fixed, Danum have put ALL work on the school websites (linked below) please email any work you do in the mean time to your class teachers and we will pass on. We are contacting other schools to ask them to do the same. The transition team will phone me back as soon as the issue is fixed and you’ll be able to access the classroom.

Thank you all for your patience!

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

I have spent a very exciting morning in Sandal Beat Woods, as F2’s information board was erected. F2 children spent a long time researching woodland animals and creating beautiful artwork as part of their last expedition. I am sure you will all agree that their finished work looks fantastic. Our F2 children should be very proud of themselves. I wonder if you can spot your portrait?

The information board is within the fenced off area by the fire circles, opposite the park. I’m sure it will be very helpful to all members of the public and children visiting the woods. Due to current restrictions at the education center, the best day to visit the woods and see the sign is Tuesday as the gates to this area are locked through the week.

Well done F2!
