On behalf of the children, staff and Governors, welcome to the new Edenthorpe Hall Primary School website. We hope you find the site useful and informative.
A huge thank you for all the support and sponsorship for our Speedmark event.
All the children (and teachers) thoroughly enjoyed the day and we have raised just over £1400 for school funds.
Please let me know if you have any suggestions as to how the money should be spent.
Year six have recently visited Crucial Crew with lots of other year 6 classes from South Yorkshire.
We learnt about how to be safe on public buses when travelling around Doncaster.
Through role plays, we also learnt how to contact the emergency services. Members of the fire service warned us about the danger of hoax calls and taught us what to do if there is a fire in our house.
Finally, we took part in a trial in a magistrates court. We all took different roles in the court and learnt what happens when children have to go to court.
Back at school, we are continuing to learn about road safety, cyberbullying, first aid and the emergency services in our PSHE lessons and assemblies.
We would like to extend a huge ‘thank you’ to Friends of Edenthorpe Hall for their
continued fundraising. At Christmas time, they donated £500 to school to purchase
games for each class to use during wet playtimes. The toys and games were
delivered from Santa to each class and we had a fantastic response from the

At Edenthorpe Hall Primary we aim to develop our pupils learning power, not just so they can complete school learning more easily and effectively, but so they will leave school with a general purpose and set of habits and attitudes which will serve them well in all areas of life. Below are information leaflets which explain what BLP is, how we are implementing it at Edenthorpe Hall Primary and how you can further support your child’s learning at home.

Dear Children and Parents,
Welcome back to our new term in 2014! We have lots of exciting events planned over the next term e.g. trips to Muton Park, Crucial Crew, visits from the Young Shakespeare Company, Science mornings, Speedmark events- watch this space! The Friends of Edenthorpe Hall have also planned another visit from Mark’s Magic Kingdom (20.01.14), following last years successful event.
For your diaries: Please note that the last day of this half term (Friday February 21st) is a training day. School closes to children on Thursday 20th February.
Year 6 have been developing their BLP skills by taking part in a Marble Run challenge. They had to work in teams to create a rollercoaster for a marble. The children had to design a rollercoaster including bends and twists and they could earn extra points by including a loop or jump as well as points for teamwork and creativity.
Having learnt about structures in class each group set to work in creating a unique design with varying levels of success. The children thoroughly enjoyed the morning and learnt a lot about the importance of design as well as developing their BLP skills.
Year 6 would like to thank Mr Boden for coming into school to deliver the exciting project and Mrs Pick for organising the materials.
