At Courtney’s Request…

Courtney suggested that I should write a blog about what we have been doing in the summer holidays – what a good idea! My summer holiday has been quiet. I have come into school every week to sign papers and to see how the building work has been going on – and I am very excited about the start of the new term. Stella and I have been playing lots of tennis every day – and she has been in a few tournaments. This summer she has won 13 games and only lost 5 so I am well-pleased. Eve has read lots of books and been hanging out with her friends. We have also had lots of sleepovers – rather, the girls have. I went to Straford upon Avon for the weekend with the girls and Tracy and we watched a play – it was fab. Next summer, all the Y6 are visiting Stratford to see the house where Shakespeare lived as a child and we will all see a play! So what have you all been doing? Some people have sent in photos – remember that everyone who sends in a photo to head@ivanhoe.doncaster.sch.uk will be entered in the draw for one of five £20 Meadowhall vouchers.

  1. I’ve have had lots of lovely, family days including Scarborough twice, Cusworth Hall, Brodsworth Hall and Cannon Hall Farm. I’ve been to the cinema to see “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” and “Brave”, both great films. We went up to Thyrbergh Park and saw Mrs Grimwood there and a few others from school. My favourite day out so far was the Tropical Butterfly House & Falconry Centre. We saw some good bird shows and a parrot came and took a coin out of my hand and put it in a collection box. They have some cool ride on electric cars and I won the race between me, my Dad and Sister!! They have some giant tortoises now which we liked stroking. Today we are going to Graves Park in Sheffield as the weather is lovely. I am looking forward to being back at school next week and my sister, Emily, is looking forward to starting Nursery. She wants to wear her uniform all the time since Mum got it for her!

  2. Emily is so cute wanting to wear her uniform. I have bought some new school trousers and I will wear them on the first day with the price tag on and then do an assembly about how beautiful the children look in their new uniform!

  3. Amy and Cara have had lots of day trips this summer holidays, they’ve been to cleethorpes twice, bridlington once, yorkshire wildlife park and clifton park (too many times to remember). We also took them to rother valley country park, the highlight for them was the pedal boat ride, but not so much a highlight for mum and dad as they had to do all the pedalling ;). They’ve also had days at the cinema, swimming and various indoor soft plays. Both have become much more confident with their bikes.

    They’ve really enjoyed themselves, but they did request a quieter last week in the holidays as they were getting a little tired (and if truth be told, so were mum, dad, gran and grandad!).

    The girls are looking forward to getting back to school and starting in their new classes. It’s been a fab summer holidays this year and very enjoyable.

  4. Hello Mr Brian

    I went camping with Mummy & Daddy to Edale for two nights. While we were there we went to Speedwell Cavern where you go through a tunnel in a boat and have to wear a hard hat. We also went on a daytrip to Cleethorpes where we saw Cara, who is in my class, and her sister, Amy. I’ve been to Clifton Park (where we also saw Cara and Amy) and also to the playground and the library with my sister, Erin a few times. A couple of weeks ago we got a bubble machine to play with in the garden.

  30. Hi Mr brian
    I had a great time.I went to holland and went glamping- gloamorous camping in a massive posh tent with posh beds and everything. It was boiling hot so I went in the outside pool when I came out I was shivering. We went to the seaside and on loads of rides. On the 4th day my mum got very ill so we took her to hospital and she had to stay for 10 nights so my Auntie Joanne got an aeroplane and brought me and my little sister home. My mum says we need to go on another holiday now to make up for this one so we are going somewhere at half term but we haven’t decided where yet. I had a lovely time back in Liverpool with my Auntie Joanne and the rest of my family- so that was like a holiday really. I am glad to be back at school with everyone this week.

  31. That sounds quite an adventure – your poor mum! I am glad that you are happy to be back at school – we had a fab week with all that sunshine!

  32. during the six week holidays I did lots of exiciting things like going to chester zoo which was really fun the best thing was seeing a jaguar.I also went down to a fun day at charleys dads shop and it was really fun on the bouncy castle.at the begining of the holidays i went to brid which was good my favourite bit was the
    king frog which is a ride.

  38. Mr Brian. I have been helping jess blog and came across you praising Y6s sats results, It made me think back to my last day at Ivanhoe and our Y6 assembly, It was an emotional but memorable day. Me and my mum thought it was very generous of you to give each and every Y6 a meadow hall voucher for a whopping 30 pound! My mum is taking me this saturday to meadow hall for a girly day for me putting a lot of effort into my new school. I will let you know what I buy with your generosity . THANKYOU! XxX
