I am delighted to let you knowCarcroft 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.
I lent out shin pads to children in our last football tournament that we competed in a few months ago. If you have a pair at home please can you send them back to school as they are needed for our next tournament.
Y5 swimming commences this Friday for the next 12 weeks. Y5 children can come to school in their swimming kit ready as this makes it easier when we arrive at the pool – swimming costumes for girls, trunks for boys and a towel. Girls I would also recommend having your hair up or bringing a bobble with you. Please don’t forget to pack your undies for coming home in!
Y5 will be leaving for swimming lessons at 8:45am so if children could be at school promptly this will massively help getting to the session on time, doors will be open for Y5 from 8:35am.
LKS2 were lucky to hold a basketball tournament at school today and they played brilliantly well. We came up against some tough opponents in the glorious weather today, but I couldn’t be prouder of the effort the children showed. They never once gave up, tried their very best and played with a smile. We came 3rd and 4th, but will only keep on improving. Well done for your effort guys and keep up it up!
It has been a pleasure taking the Y5/6 children to the dodgeball tournament this afternoon. The children really excelled themselves with their dodgeball skills and worked really hard in every game. It was great to see their team spirit! We came 4th out of 10 teams, massive well done carcroft! 🙌🏼
