Mega Travel Pass

Get ready for September. Apply now for a MegaTravel Pass.
Cheaper travel is available for all under 16s living in South Yorkshire with a MegaTravel Pass. MegaTravellers can travel in South Yorkshire for a single fare of 80p per journey on buses or trams. They can also buy discounted 1, 7 or 28 day tickets, which are loaded onto the pass, which might be cheaper if they travel regularly. Under 16s travelling without a valid pass may be charged full fare, so even if your pupils are not travelling on public transport right now, we’re encouraging early application so they’re ready to go in September. The pass proves a child is eligible to travel for the concessionary fare on public transport in South Yorkshire.
Instructions on how to apply for a MegaTravel Pass are available at

We are so proud of Blake:

Information for Y6 students

Local Authority Transition Update:

We have been given this additional information to support you with the transition classrooms:

  • You should have received your Doncaster Transition booklet in the post with a letter giving guidance on how to access the transition classroom.
  • The letter you received informs you that a gmail account will be needed to access the classroom.  Please be aware that the email needed to log in needs to end with @gmail.com this is why the children can’t use their Green Top email account.
  • The transition Google classrooms will be available into the autumn term and into the new school year so if you haven’t accessed it much this week, please do not worry.
  • Streaming the videos to almost 4000 students has meant that on occasions there is a message saying that they can’t be played. Our solution to this is to share the videos directly with you, these can then be downloaded and played by you at home or at school. 

 

We are sharing the following links:

4 mindfulness videos https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1svgJXIZ7fOTMYl_uPJrkEkzwEcZ-aDzE?usp=sharing 

6 workbook videos https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1uN-mvRictFypJJ8jtukSz84RvF5IPlvv?usp=sharing 

6 group work sessions https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1uN-mvRictFypJJ8jtukSz84RvF5IPlvv?usp=sharing

School Games Active Championship

Youth Sports Trust have teamed up with TopYa to create an exclusive School Games Active Championship which can be used by pupils and schools.

Three times a week TopYa! Release a challenge for pupils to try. Children practise the challenges, then submit their best video using a mobile device to receive personal coaching feedback from the TopYa! team of experienced virtual coaches. Points are earned for each video submitted, leading to climbing leaderboards and winning prizes!

The TopYa! Active app is committed to online safety and meets rigorous COPPA and GDPR safeguarding standards. No one can communicate within the app. All children can do to communicate with one another is give each other a virtual ‘high-five’, which functions like a social media ‘like’.

The points pupils gain are then tallied up and compared in a league table against other Doncaster schools (in the Rossington School Games Area).

This is completely free and a great way for pupils to be active at home and at school.

I have attached above information from TopYa! And you can also read more on the School Games Website.

You will need the following code which is unique to your school: 22612

 

Good luck and enjoy!
