Crew Flaherty

Our final week this half term has been lovely. All the children thoroughly enjoyed our experience day about Afghanistan. We wanted to allow the children to experience what a typical day could be like in Afghanistan. We researched where Afghanistan is located, the capital city and how to greet somebody in Pashto. This experience day is in preparation for us to answer the second half of our Guiding Question Coming to Doncaster: why then and why now? Children will be learning about why people why move to Doncaster and seek refuged.

Watch out for our experience day video!

We hope you have a lovely half term and we look forward to seeing all the children back at school on Monday 1st November

Dear Parents and Carers 

Next week is maths week at Carcroft (4th – 7th May).  We will be celebrating maths and to do this we will be doing the following:

  • Each day you will be informed of a challenge you can complete at home and bring into school or send to your crew leader on Class Dojo.
  • Each day there will be a FUN maths challenge on the blog for you to complete as a family at home
  • Friday is NSPCC Maths day so we will be having a ‘maths’ dress up day or Non-Uniform Day with numbers (£1 donation)

Please see the school blog for links to the NSPCC maths day website, ideas for dress up and daily posts next week.

Contact this week with isolating crews

If your child(ren) are self isolating this week due to bubble closures in school, class teachers and support staff will be calling each day to check in with the children. This maybe on an anonymous number therefore can I ask that you answer as it maybe someone from school.

These checks are to have a general chat with the children and to see if school can assist whilst they are isolating.

Once again thank you for your continued support, take care and stay safe.

What a wonderful day it was to have our crew reunited after lockdown 3. All the children have worked incredibly hard over the last few months

online and in school. We are super proud of everyone. All the children were rewarded with a certificate and a yummy chocolate bar. I’m sure they will be super kind at home and share it with you.

Highlight of the day:

In maths we used equipment to help us with repeated addition. It was lovely to see the children sharing the equipment and supporting each other with their number sentences. Keep up the hard work year 2!
