MAKE A SCARECROW – family learning

Tuesday morning was fantastic! Parents and children were collaborating and problem solving as they made their own scarecrows which are displayed in the EYFS classrooms and outdoor areas.


I’m sure you’ll agree they have made fabulous enhancements for our new theme ‘What are the Scarecrow’s Secrets?’



Green Top’s Learning Song

During Arts Week, the entire school came together to produce this music video. Thanks to all the staff involved, especially Mrs Close and Mr Mumby. Enjoy!
Sing along with the words:

Little Ladybird

Kesha found a ladybird in our outdoor area today. During sharing time she told the class how she’d been a ‘Curious Cleo’ looking at the ladybirds wings and spots and how it walked on her hand. There were lots of children looking at her ladybird. IMG_5414

EYFS cannon hall visit

Our day at Cannon Hall Farm was truly amazing! The children were an absolute delight to take and represented Green Top beautifully. They found out lots of new facts about farm animals and came back ‘hooked’ by their new them. When we talked about our favourite part of the day, many children enjoyed the pigs, reindeers and feeding the goats. But above all the favourite part of the day had to be the ‘Sheep Race’.

Lola’s Bird Nest and Oliver’s book!

Lola brought 2 Robin’s nests into school today. She shared them with class, explaining where she had found them and lots of facts she had learnt at home.

Oliver has also been enthused by our new theme he brought his farmyard tales book from home and one of the shorter stories in the book was called ‘Scarecrow’s Secret.’ Lots of children in class 2 then went away and wrote their own secrets for the scarecrow.

The children have had an awesome day and enjoyed our immersion in our new classroom. We are excited for more learning tomorrow… Trip day Wednesday – you might need your wellies the forecast is a wet day! 🙁




Thank you for your attendance at parent and child celebration of learning conferences this week! It was fantastic to see your childrenconfidently talking about their own learning and how they could improve. I hope you enjoyed it as much as the children and I.
