The Nursery children celebrated their last week together by taking part in sports day sessions. The children were challenged to complete twenty activities including ‘jumping the hay bales’ and ‘welly wanging’ . All received a certificate and medal for taking part. Well done to my gold medallists!
On Wednesday our parents and carers were invited to our garden party themed celebration to celebrate our theme ‘what are the Scarecrow’s secrets?’ We had fun sharing our books and slideshows of learning. We read together the story of ‘The Scarecrows’ Wedding and sang songs together including Dingle Dangle Scarecrow. We had lots of fun posing by the tractor, having our faces painted and taking part in the scavenger Hunt. Lots of you enjoyed a picnic and dancing in the hall with Mrs Hardman! There were games and story sessions in F2 classrooms and a fantastic time was enjoyed by all! A big thank you to all staff and parents for making our event extra special but also appreciating and celebrating the last theme of the year and the vast amount of learning that has taken place.
Nahla Walker proudly presents her fundraising cheque to her class friends. Nahla explained that she has raised more than £900 for the children’s hospital which she attends by doing a raffle and cake sale for family, friends and teachers. She baked buns throughout the afternoon to share with friends and talked about how she was “baking it better by helping poorly girls and boys.” We are so very admirable of this little girls initiative and awareness at such at young age.

The community of Thorne have come out today to take part in Green Top’s Picnic in thePark. The choir, cheerleaders and other talented Green Top children are all performing in Thorne Park this afternoon.
Den day Fun! The children were very proud of their certificates! The children discussed why we were having den day, planned their dens and worked as a team to create and decorate. In the afternoon the children critiqued each others and planned how they could make their dens better. We then had a walk around to school to look at the dens made by KS1 and 2. Well done Nursery!
The nursery children have had a fantastic time being mini-beast explorers this week. The children’s interest, exploration and level of conversation was exciting to see and hear. The children spoke not only about what they had found but the differences in mini-beasts, where they like to live and how we can care for them further. Well done F1!

Noah brought in cress heads he had made at home for his learning challenge! Noah wanted to eat his cress and also shared with friends! They were a little apprehensive of the taste but Noah encouraged them to try. The verdict? “We love cress!”
Noah shared his product at the homework learning circle and very soon children were making their very own cress pots complete with name labels! Come and see how well they have grown and have a try if you are brave enough!
