On Tuesday 15th June children in Owls, Bees and Squirrels will be honing their detective skills as they learn how csi scientists investigate a crime. The children will be collecting and analyzing the clues, taking finger prints, calculating the time of the crime, identifying handwriting left behind at the scene and eliminating suspects to find out who committed the crime. Thank you to Miss Krasauskas, who has planned and organized this fantastic science activity for the children across KS2.
On Thursday, staff and children got to enjoy a Maypole day like no other!
Like every year since 2014, the weather was kind to us. Year 6 children paraded onto the field and we all watched as Matthew crown Cassidy the Maypole Queen for 2021.
Then, the dancing began. Just like every other year, there was a mixture of traditional and modern songs. Frogs class got the party started:
Next were Hedgehogs, with this colourful number, complete with lace ribbons.
After that, Badger’s class took to the field for this very elaborate dance, choreographed in groups of 4 with some traditional Scottish dancing thrown in…
Squirrels shared a more modern dance, which got the whole field on their feet
As things moved towards the big finale, Bees class did a traditional ribbon dance…
…and Year 6 brought proceedings to a close with a beautiful rendition of ‘You’ve Got a Friend’
After the song, the children in Owls class went on to the dancefloor to dance and party thanks to the PTA organised Year 6 disco.
The children really enjoyed the event, performed to their usual high standards and, again like every year, all the staff worked their socks off to put the event on. Hopefully, next year we can look forward to Maypole celebrations of old, when we can all get back together and celebrate as a community.
Well done to Miss Worthington and the children in Hedgehog class for all the efforts they went to on Friday to celebrate their learning during the Superhero topic with a fantastic fancy dress party, where they came as their favourite superhero. A wonderful time was had by all as they played games and put the world to rights. Thank you to the children and parents for the positive feedback. Next Thursday the class are making pancakes and on Friday, Frogs class are bringing their topic to an end with a Pirate themed party.
Our second week of this term has certainly proved to be another eventful one! We had to close school early Thursday and we would like to thank those parents whose children were in school for collecting their children so quickly. Due to the treacherous driving conditions and freezing fog that affected large areas of Doncaster, we remained closed on Friday.
The snow provided lots of opportunity for families to get outside and make the most of it while it is here and gave all the children an opportunity to experience live lessons for the first time. Thank you to those of you who have uploaded photos, videos and work onto Google Classroom.
I thought it would be nice to share photos of things that the children have been doing at home on our upcoming blogs, just like we did during the March lockdown I will include home learning, things that the children are proud of or an example of family time spent together.
