Music




Miss Stavish knows that whilst we have not been in school we have all been missing our music lessons so she has created a log in for each of you so you can do some music lessons at home.

https://www.doncastermusicserviceonline.co.uk/yumu

Each of you have a username which is the first 3 letters of your first name and the first three letters of your last name. For example if your name was Alex Smith your username would be alesmi
Everyone's password is set as password.

Below is a video of Miss Stavish logging in to show you how it will look.

Doncaster Stories

Hi all,
Doncaster Literacy Trust are organising some great competitions over the lockdown period.  I think this would be a great opportunity for your child to develop their creative writing skills and their love of reading.  
Here is a link to their facebook page - please take a look!

This week the creative writing challenge is set at The Frenchgate Centre!  I could see some amazing creativity from this!  Please encourage your child to take part.  It is such a great opportunity for them.

Happy Writing!
Mrs Clark xx

ICT Challenge



As we all know, Miss Stavish loves ICT and particularly coding and programming. Without coders and programmers we wouldn't be able to have this blog or any other form of technology for that matter. Whilst Miss Stavish is unable to teach you she has found you a great, fun course of coding to develop your skills whilst you are not in school.

This course is free to sign up and track your progress which is brilliant. This course can be done over time whilst school is closed. You will have so much fun coding a dance party with current music, coding an angry birds game, learn functions with minecraft, create a maze game and so much more.

Simply click here: https://studio.code.org/s/express-2019

Can't wait to have some master coders when we get back to school.
