To all of our wonderful and amazing Year 6 role models, you are going to be missed very much. We have enjoyed every moment having you here at Wadworth watching to grow into the fantastic, hard-working, enthusiastic, kind, caring and resilient young people ready to embark the next exciting part of your learning journey.
Good luck to every one of you wherever you are in September – every secondary school is going to be blessed as they get to know you as we do. Take care and remember, you are always welcome here at Wadworth!
The last week of term was a busy week for the PTA, who organised and prepared the food for the Year 6 Maypole disco on Thursday and The PTA ‘Break The Rules Day’ on Friday. Both events were a success and the children seemed to really enjoy them. They raised an impressive £393 and were awarded a certificate by Miss Krasauskas on Friday, along with staff and pupils, for all their hard work.
This week has seen some significant milestones in our local Coronavirus response. Firstly, for the majority of the week our hospitals have reported 0 cases of COVID-19 being treated. We have also seen, for the first time this year, our case rates drop significantly below the national average, our current figures show our rates are 21.5 per 100,000 (from 23 to 29 May) compared to the England average of 32.5 per 100,000.

Our vaccination programme has also continued at a pace – with almost 75% of the eligible Doncaster population having received their 1st dose and just under 50% of Doncaster residents now being fully vaccinated.
This is all great news, and I want to thank all of you for continuing to make safe choices in how you enjoy the relaxations of restrictions. It has been great to see families enjoying half term activities across the borough (including at our newly opening Danum Gallery and Museum) while being sensible and thinking about hands, face, space and fresh air. I urge everyone to carry on, and let’s try and get our figures even lower ahead of the decisions due around 21st June and step 4 of the roadmap.
Please remember the best way to protect yourself and the rest of Doncaster, is to continue with your weekly testing regimes, isolating when you need and getting your vaccination as soon as you can. Visit the Doncaster Council Coronavirus Update website for more information on Drop In Vaccination Clinics, more information on testing and Danum Library.
As part of their ‘What a Wonderful World’ topic, Squirrels class learned about rainforests and Mr Robson challenged the children to create the features of a rainforest by making a model jungle in a shoe box using different tools, media and techniques, combining natural and synthetic materials. Below are a few examples completed by the children.
Sofia moved up a level in swimming and Ellis was man of the match after his football team won 10-3. Aria received a certificate for a 180o kick in taekwondo and Lilly won a puzzle competition on holiday.
We have invited Mr Dan to teach our KS2 children some exciting new skills. On Tuesday 8th June KS2 will have the opportunity to take part in a speed rope skipping workshop followed by a Circus day on Tuesday 22nd June. We would like to ask for a contribution of £6.00. This includes both workshops and food. Payment can be made via ParentPay. Consent for your child to take part in the activities will also be required when paying. Children will need to wear their P.E kits for these days.
