about Learning Exhibition
We were delighted to host the Learning
about Learning exhibition on Monday 10 March. The exhibition attracted visitors from far and wide who were
impressed by the display of enquiry based learning by the student teachers. Kathleen Taylor exhibited the
work in collaboration with Bishop Grosseteste University. Visitors young and old enjoyed a delicious learning
about learning celebration cake.
St Chad's Day
The whole school had a wonderful afternoon in the sunshine
taking part in a PILGRIMAGE around Dunholme in celebration of St Chad’s Day on Monday
3 March. We would like to thank all parents and friends of the school for helping us on the afternoon.
Photographs and a video of children singing can be viewed on our School’s website.
As part of the Mukherjee Trust project, we will be holding another Golden Ticket Day at the end of March.
All children will have an opportunity to take part in a variety of activities ranging from swimming, Easter baking,
a visit to RAF Scampton and many more.
Dunholme St Chad’s School Ground Force Day
Thanks to the glorious
weather, our second Ground Force day was a huge success. A big, big thank you to all the community members, staff and parents
who gave up their free time to help us in our out door area. We achieved almost everything on the list so hopefully our
next ground force day will involve the children. A massive thank you to Angela Hopson and Peggy Roate who kept the troops
fed and watered with delicious homemade soup, bacon rolls and cakes! Photographs can be viewed on our school’s
website. Please come to our next day if you can spare an hour or two. The date for this
will follow shortly.
Children in years 5 and 6 have been busy rehearsing
for their production of ‘Peace Child’ this term. Parents and guests will be in for a treat
when performances will be held on 17th and

Classes were involved in a variety of activities although some had trouble recognising their teachers!

We love reading at Dunholme
St Chad's and there is so much happening that we thought we would share with you all the things we have been involved
‘Read for my School’ National Competition:
All KS2 children have been challenged to read as many books as possible until the end of March. There are 100 free titles
that can be accessed online. Our KS2 children have read 452 in the first month of this competition!
Scholastic Book Fair - 27th February to 3rd March:
As part of its enterprise, Y6 did a fantastic job running this year's Book Fair. A target of £400
was set and purchases totalled £518.90!
New Book Scheme for KS1:
We have recently invested
in a new ‘Collins Big Cats’ book scheme for KS1, which gives KS1 access to many exciting titles, including non-fiction.
The children have been very excited about the new books.
Thank you to those of
you, who have already collected and handed in donations for the Readathon, which is raising money to support different children's
charities. Thank you for your generosity.
Changing a Life Forever – Y6 set out on a mission!
Year 6 are supporting Visayans Spoonsor a Child Project. These children are living on a
dumpsite. This is a global problem which our Y6 children would like to help with. Their
goal is to raise enough money for a child’s medication, education, well being and food. They are
doing this because of their class book, Trash, which has told them all about dumpsite children and they wish to stop this.
To learn more about the charity and how it aims to help a child who is living on a dumpsite in the Philippines visit
www.visayans.org/sponsor-a-child. So far
our Y6 children have organised a non-uniform day and raised £113.91! Other forthcoming fund raising
events are an Easter Egg Hunt, The Great George Quiz and many more!
