Dear Parents and Carers,
Another year has come to an end at Green Top and I’m sure we can all agree on the business of the academic year. We have been on so many learning visits, hosted many celebration assemblies and family learning afternoons as well as producing many pieces of amazing work including a published book.
Thank you for all your support with the above and also for the reading you do with your children at home, ensuring that the children come to school in the correct uniform and contributing to the residentials and learning visits we organise.
I would like to thank my leadership team and all my staff for supporting your children. The dedication that my staff have demonstrated this year in their planning and delivery lessons has been first class. The learning environments are exciting and engaging, the staff deserve the credit for these learning spaces.
I would also like to thank the board of governors for their dedication and time commitment. This year has been an extraordinary year as we continued on our academy journey consulting with staff, parents, children, unions and the wider community.
Well done and thank you for the children. Once again they have been amazing, taking all the learning opportunities staff have presented them and making great progress.
I hope you all have a great holiday and we will see you all, open for business on Monday 4th September.
Thank you for your support
Whist the rest of the school are taking part in transition week, the remaining year 6 children have created this amazing video based on Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes. The children created the artwork and performed the poetry brilliantly.
I have really enjoyed working with you all! Thank you Year 6!
As you are aware at Green Top we like to offer children unique and exciting experiences which supplement the curriculum we already offer. We are currently canvassing the opinions of our stakeholders to develop a list of ’50 things to do at Green Top’. (We developed the idea from the National Trust and their 50 things to do before you are 11 ¾!)
We are asking you to consider, as a family, the things you would like to do, experiences you’d like to have, non-academic things you may want to learn, whilst you are at Green Top. Use the grid overleaf to jot down your ideas. This list may include some of things you get up to as a family over the summer break.
This list may include ideas such as, create a rap song, toast marshmallows on a campfire or create a meal from vegetables we have grown. You’re sure to have better ideas.
Miss Salter will collect these in during the first week back in September and compile a list alongside those ideas offered by governors, parents and significant people in our local community to create a list of ‘50 things to do at Green Top!’
Look out for the list on the school website and the display that will appear in the foyer near the hall in the Autumn term.

Well done to Lily for handing an expensive mobile phone into our school office after she found it on her way to school. It was eventually returned to its rightful owner who was extremely grateful and by way of appreciation sent Lily a letter and gift card.
Everybody at Green Top is very proud of you Lily!
Will Cameron left our school yesterday to continue his learning journey at Trinity Academy. Will’s parents and his sister Maddison all wanted to say thank you for their time at Green Top. Will had the great idea of buying every class a new football for break times. This is such a thoughtful and very useful present. Thank you Will and your family, we will miss you all.
The weather was amazing, allowing us to hold a great sports day. Thanks to all the staff for organising the event, the parents for turning up and supporting and well done to the children for trying their hardest and competing fairly!
Here is a picture of the winning team:
The sun is shining and the grass in drying, so Sports Day 2017 for Nursery and KS2 children is on this morning!
The school held its first house team football tournament in the beautiful July rain. Children from different classes came together to play for their house in a series of matches.
The games were played with motivation, skill and a high level of team work. I’d like to say on the behalf of all staff who were present how proud we are of our children and the way conducted themselves throughout the afternoon.
It will certainly become an annual date in the diary!
Well done to the Comets house on winning the tournament; You will be presented your medals and trophy on the last day of term.
The weather hasn’t stopped the Green Top Y6 children from partying!
