School places

This is a reminder to all families who have children starting school in September either in nursery or reception to apply for a place if you haven’t done so already. Please remind friends and family if they haven’t applied also.

We have 15 hour and 30 hour places available in nursery. 30 hour funded places are usually from 9-3 and 15 hour places either in a morning or an afternoon. However, if this doesn’t meet your child care requirements please let us know and we will try to accommodate where we can.

We are able to offer places in nursery for those children who will be moving up to reception in September. This will enable children to make friends with the children they will be with in September.

If your child was 3 before Christmas then they can also start as an early starter in nursery now.

If they are 3 between January and April then they could start as an early starter after the Easter holidays.

EYFS children are usually able to access before and after school paid provision and clubs. Due to the pandemic however these are currently not running.

If you are interested in a nursery or reception place and would like more information please contact the school office.

Thank you

Mrs Price

Amazing artwork in Year 3 and 4

It has been a great week of learning for so many of our children in year 3 and 4. So many children have been logging on and completing their work, it is great to see.

I have been particularly impressed with the artwork that has been produced during the Thursday afternoon art sessions with Mrs Foster.

They have been learning about the Japanese artwork ‘the Great Wave’ by Hokusai, to link with our expedition theme of Natural Disasters and today’s lesson moved on to using a tsunami as a subject to study using perspective in their drawings.

I am blown away by the quality of the drawing and the care and pride they have put into their work.

Have a flick through our gallery below (swipe left and  right) and who knows, one day, some these pupils might be displaying in real art galleries!

Enjoy our art!

We need your help!

Plover, we need your help in supporting Santander (a bank in Doncaster) by helping them decorate their shop window ready for Valentines day! All you need to do is create a ‘thank you’ poster in the shape of a heart, thanking key workers. You can thank whoever you like and as many people as you like! If you are in school, you can pass your hearts to your teachers who will pass them on to me or you can email photos of your hearts to myself at ablackham@ploverschool.co.uk

If you submit a photo of your child holding their artwork, you are consenting that their photo can be displayed in the shop window! Let’s spread some love and share our thanks 🙂

We will create a video of all the entries!

The deadline for the photos is 2pm Friday 29th January

During this current Coronavirus Lockdown, the well-being of our children remains very important to us. We understand that children are dealing with the restrictions in different ways, and that some children are finding it hard-going.

If you have concerns, this resource may help, there are a selection of tips:

The resource is available as a document and short video presentation.

Please do speak to your class teacher too, as there may be more support we can offer.

This link will also be in the Parent Support Centre area on the front page of the school website.

Fun in the snow!

Last week, in between our live lessons, we managed to squeeze in some well deserved time to play in the snow! Thank you as always to everyone who sent in pictures! We hope you enjoy our snow video!

Well done Year 3 & 4! What a week!

A big well done to Year 3 and Year 4 for how you have engaged with online learning and worked hard in school.

Who would have thought at the start of the week that we would have had volcanoes, snow and disco – but we did and so hopefully that has helped you to have fun.

Miss Topliss and Miss Lister have been full of praise of the effort Year 3 have been putting into their learning and Miss Lotysz and myself feel the same about Year 4.

I look forward to reading the shape poems that you have been writing and also seeing your photographs of the fun you have had in the snow.

Enjoy your weekend and look out for this week’s Feel Good Friday video on the blog.
