Beat the Street

By Community, Corona - Covid19 Virus, Mental Health, Sporting Excellence

Our school is getting involved in an exciting community challenge called Beat the Street. On Friday we will send home fobs, maps and leaflets with the children.

Beat the Street is a challenge across Rotherham where local schools, workplaces and community groups compete to see who can walk, run, cycle and scoot the furthest by the end of the game.

Find Beat Boxes around your area and hover your contactless fob to earn points for your team and help win hundreds of pounds worth of prizes. Playing the game is easy, just follow these simple steps:

1, Register your fob online at beatthestreet.me/rotherham to join your chosen team.

2, Find your nearest Beat Box and hover your fob until it beeps and flashes.

3, Walk, run, cycle and scoot to a different Beat Box within an hour. Hover your fob to earn 10 points.

4, Carry on your journey to score 10 points for each extra Beat Box you visit.

Please see the attached powerpoint for further information.

We would like to say a huge thank you to J.T. Pickfords who have kindly offered to pay the shortfall to build our foundation climbing frame. This means we can set contractors to work very soon.

World Book Day – Thursday 4th March

The Masked Reader

To celebrate World Book Day, we want our children to film themselves reading an extract from their favourite book in disguise. On Monday 8th March, when all of our children return to school- yeah! We will show the recordings in class. Can children guess the person behind the mask? What are they reading? We hope that this activity will be lots of fun for everyone.

Mrs Teale and Mr Frelich (our English Leaders), are delivering collective worship on Monday 1st March. In this assembly, they will tell you all about World Book Day and answer any questions that you may have.

Further details:

-On Thursday 4th March, key worker children can come to school dressed in their disguise and record their masked read with the support of their teaching assistant.

-All masked readings need to be sent to the class teacher through Class Dojo – before Monday 8th March.

-Recordings to be no longer than 30 seconds.
