I would like to say a massive THANK YOU to you all, children and parents, for the engagement in our work this week.
To the children, thank you for completing so many tasks and for sending the work and photos in. It has been great to catch up with so many of you in our daily check ins and hopefully it won't be too long before we are back together in person.
To the parents, I know it is incredibly difficult for you having to juggle your own work and be there for your children's work too, yet the way you have responded has been brilliant.
Finally, I would also like to thank Mrs Lewis, Mr Wells, Miss Hughes and Mrs Pennington for supporting the children in our lower key stage two bubble at school and for ensuring that they too have been supported in their learning.
Have a great weekend and see you next week.

Message from Fr Darren
I just want you to know that I received so much from visiting you and your class today. It did me the power of good.
Over recent months I have found myself dealing with many things that feel unrelated to what I am trained for as a priest. It has been far from easy.
Talking about the Holy Family was a joy, it made feel alive again.

Year 3 Museum Visit
Year 3 visited Doncaster Museum as part of their topic on Ancient Egypt. They impressed the guides, Ashleigh and Sam, with their prior knowledge and learned a great deal more through their workshop entitled,'What no mummy?'
As always, the behaviour shown by the children throughout the day was excellent and I would like to say I am proud of the class I am for their efforts/
The class would like to thank Mrs Hamilton and Mr Eyre for joining them on the trip.
We have a session in the library each Friday so children can swap their books if they have finished them or have a little time to enjoy books quietly.

Welcome to Year 3 2019/2020
I have thoroughly enjoyed the first two days with Year 3 and am sure we will have a super year ahead of us. Please check the website regularly for updates on what we have been doing and also for reminders about homework and so on.
The welcome letter which was sent home today is attached.
LOVELL HOARDING BOARD
RUNNERS UP 2019
We collected our medals from Nicky at the Lovell building site.
We are very proud of our artistic achievements!
Stop the Drop!
We did a litter pick around the school grounds. Just look at the amount of litter bags we filled from our school ground in half an hour!
We have been working with Katie from Green Energy again. We looked at the problems of litter and we were amazed at the number of years it takes for litter to break down for examples, a nappy takes five hundred years to degrade and a plastic bottle NEVER!
On Tuesday 25th September we enjoyed an evening at the theatre
Welcome to Year 3!
