Scoot to school! 🛴

Dear Parents/Carers,

I am delighted to let you know Carcroft School is participating in a Scoot to School scheme funded by Doncaster MBC. The school has received 20 scooters and helmets and scooter storage. These will be available to be used in school time by all pupils. 

To celebrate the start of Scoot to School we are having a Scoot to School Day! It is a fun day that encourages children and their families to come to school on their scooters. We would love you all to get involved so if your child doesn’t have a scooter you can walk, cycle, or skate to school instead. 

We know there are some things that make it more difficult for some pupils to get involved. If you would like to discuss more about your child(ren)’s specific needs, please contact (insert name) and we will make sure there is a way your child can take part. 

Scoot to School Day will be taking place on Thursday 19th May 2022

What activities will be taking place on Scoot to School Day?

Wheel around school session: There will be a designated time and space for the children to be able to use their scooters, skates and bikes at school. 

Dr Scoot: Active Travel Officer Chris Pryor will be carrying out scooter checks to ensure that they are safe and will make any minor repairs that are needed. 

Launch the Scoot to School Challenge: each class will be competing to win the challenge by recording the most Scoot to School journeys over a 4 week period. 

We really hope you can get involved and join in the fun.

Kind Regards,

Chris Pryor and Miss Marsh

Modeshift Active Travel Officer

Word Collecting

Today in Crew Welburn, we’ve had a focus on collecting adjectives for our writing. We are writing a description about our local area, so we took a walk to the park to listen to the sounds we could hear, and to describe what we could see. We wrote down loads of ideas and can’t wait to get writing tomorrow!

Carcroft School would like to invite our pupils parents/carers to the Big Royal Picnic to celebrate Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
