History Club

The children in History Club continued their learning on D Day tonight by adding to the 80th Anniversary commemoration display in the KS1 corridor. Children from all year groups have contributed work to the display and I am blown away by both the quality of the work, and the empathy shown in the content of the writing. We discussed the Normandy landings on the morning of the 6th of June 1944, and the children learned about the reasons behind the previous evening’s mass drop of paratroopers behind Hitler’s Atlantic Wall and how these brave men fought to capture and hold roads and bridges to secure a safer passage for those who were to follow in the beach attacks the next day.

There are still a few finishing touches to be added and photographs of the completed display will be blogged as soon as it is completed but here is a sneak preview…

Year 4: Multiplication Tables Check (MTC)

Year 4 parents, please find information regarding the MTC which the children will sit in June.

We are working really hard on times tables in school and will continue to do so throughout the year in the run up to the MTC.

You can help at home by encouraging your child to use their TTRockstars account regularly. Jamming and Soundcheck modes are particularly useful.

Y3/4 Celebration of Learning

Year 3/4 will celebrate their expedition ‘Ancient Innovators: What did the Romans do for Doncaster?’ on Thursday 7th December between 2pm and 3pm.

We would like to invite Y3/4 parents to a coffee afternoon in the hall where you can drop in between the times of 2pm and 3pm to sit with your child and look through all of their learning on the Romans! We will also launch our website all about the Romans which the children have been working hard on for their expedition product!

More details will follow but we look forward to celebrating our learning with you soon!
