Good morning everyone,
I echo the children who said “why is it snowing in March!” Hopefully you have all received the message via the app.
Some snow activities to try
Today we would have awarded certificates to (will now do this on Monday)
All of Y2 – for their resilience during test week and trying their very best.
Melissa- For curiosity and asking questions about the learning taking place and previous learning.
Finlay- scholarship- remembering to use brackets in his writing.
Lewis O Neil- tenacity- really improving his handwriting this week and earning a pen.
Georgina Garbutt- aspiration-listening well and then achieving well in maths lessons
Have a good day and a relaxing weekend.
Remember if children read at least 3 times in the week (proposed 3 x to encourage more children )and have their reading diary signed they can earn stickers on their chart. These stickers earn the children a prize for each milestone they hit. We will also feature their photo in the school hall and in this news post. So please support your child to read as much as possible. Thank you.

Draft homework policy
We discussed our draft homework policy with the school. Our next steps is to take feedback from parents, pupils and teachers. More information soon.
We have decided to encourage more children to get onto our Reading Challenge board by awarding stickers for those that read at least 3 days per week. Please help your child by signing their reading diary- thank you.
We will be awarding hours to children who volunteer in school for example as a Playground Leader, Eco or School Councillor.
- Children receive a BRONZE certificate when children have collected 30 hours in their Passport to Learning.
- The next one will be a SILVER certificate for 65 hours.
- Then a GOLD certificate for 100 hours.
- Thereafter, children will then get certificates at every stage of 30, 65 and 100 hours after that, all the way up to 1,000 hours!
- Children only need to collect 30 hours in their passport to be invited to our Children’s University Graduation!
- Children will be invited to the annual CU graduation ceremony held at Doncaster College & University Centre.
- Children wear a mortar board cap and gown and are presented with a special graduation certificate.
- Families, friends and teachers are invited, with talks from guest speakers and performances where possible
