This week children have been learning formal methods of multiplication and supporting each other with some difficult learning. 6EG have shown resilience and determination when faced with these tricky problems – well done!
Children in 6EG have worked collaboratively to create an awesome piece of art work of an animal from the Amazonian rainforest. They had to work carefully and precisily together to ensure the sections of the image matched which took concentration and teamwork!
Today is National Read-A-Book Day and to celebrate Crew Gould and Crew Blunt read their favourite books with their classmates. Hopefully this love of books will continue!
On Wednesday 24th May, a team of year sixes travelled to the Eco-Power stadium to take part in the Richard Bailey Memorial Play on the Pitch tournament. The team played exceptionally well, winning five out of six group games and only drawing one game – credit to the boys, no goals were conceded. Winning 16 out of a possible 18 points, the team then convincingly won their quarter final and semi final games before unfortunately losing 2-0 in the final.
Organised by Club Doncaster, it was a memorable occasion for the team to play at the stadium. Whilst the team performed brilliantly against tough opponents, especially in the latter stages of the tournament, the character of the team shone brightly throughout the competition. Well done! ⚽️👍🏼
This week Year 6 have began our latest expedition ‘At the Coalface’. We were lucky enough to have an expert visit us from Sandvek mining company. A great way to immerse ourselves in the expedition!
As a break from the intensive learning the children have worked so hard on this week, we made some spring bunting to decorate the corridors and classroom.
Over the past two weeks, teams from years 3&4 and 5&6 have ventured to Campsmount to take part in Leger Sport basketball competitions. As always, the events were well organised and highly competitive with our children representing the school proudly. Whilst both teams achieved third, their team spirit, resilience (against incredibly tall opponents) and togetherness was inspiring. Well done to both teams!
