Autumn 2 News Week 3 November 18th 2022

Good morning everyone,

Today we are aiming to raise some money for Children In Need. The School Council decided that everyone can come to school in non uniform and have suggested a £!.00 donation, This afternoon there will be a chance to buy toys, books and fruit. Please send your child with a small amount of money so that they can take part in this. Georgina and her team will be organising games on the playground.

Don’t forget to wear your Odd Socks,

Mrs Mason

Some children from Year 4, 5, and 6 have chosen to take part in Young Voices. Other children from Years 1-3 have also decided to join a singing club during lunchtimes.  

To assist the children in learning the songs, I have attached a link to the songs we will be singing. Listening to these at home will familiarize them with the songs.

The songs can also be found if you search Young Voices 2022-23 Songs. 

I will send a separate message to those taking part in Young Voices, regarding tickets.  

Thank you, 

Miss Houston  

We need donations of  old books or toys- thank you.

 

Update on electric scooters

E-scooters are treated as mopeds in UK law. This means they cannot be driven on the pavement and will need to be road-legal, taxed and insured like any other road vehicle. Also, the rider must be 16 or over and wearing a suitable safety helmet. Please can I ask that you do not bring e- scooters on site.

Book at Bedtime

Message from Mrs Fletcher

As the nights draw in, we are giving you the perfect opportunity to snuggle up and keep warm together. The next half term, right up until the Christmas break, will be our ‘Book at Bedtime’ term! This will be a competition, encouraging everyone to share a book before bed. This could be older children reading to younger siblings, Parents reading to their children or children reading to Parents. We ask that, for the whole term, a book is shared at bedtime and you sign the calendar, that your child will bring home. At the end of the half term, we ask that the calendars are returned to school, fully signed, and they will be entered in to a special draw for a lovely prize. There will be 2 prizes; for EYFS/KS1 and for KS2.

In addition, we will loan out school books from our new library, in order for children to be fully engaged in the books shared.

At Denaby Main Primary, we believe that reading/sharing books together is fundamental in developing a long-lasting love for books that enhances children’s vocabulary, their imagination and their writing skills.

Thank you for your continued support. Happy reading..

 

Children’s University

 If you haven’t signed up then please return your letter so your child can take part. Attendance at lunchtime or after school clubs will earn your child a stamp on their record. These will be added up over the year so that your child can attend the graduation ceremony.

  • 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 3065 and 100 hours after that, all the way up to 1,000 hours!

Graduation

  • 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

Class PE days

Children can wear school PE kit ( no logos please.)
Y1 – Monday and Wednesday
Y2  – Wednesday and Thursday
Y4  – Tuesday (all PM)
Y3 – Monday and Wednesday
Y5 – Tuesday and Friday
Y6 – Thursday and Friday

 

 Remember if children read at least 4 times in the week 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.

Below is a handy guide for parents of children in Years 1 and 2.
