The children this week in Literacy were given a short piece of text from Room 13, which they created symbols for and performed as a class. Today, the children have written up the symbols amazingly into their Literacy books. I am absolutely blown away with all of the writing they produced and they were all awarded with a class learning legend. Well done Class 10!
This week in Year 3, we were visited by Baby Joshua in Roots of Empathy. The children asked some fantastic questions to Joshua’s Mum and were fascinated by Joshua’s movements and sounds! Next session we will be measuring and weighing Joshua which the children are looking forward to!
Well done to Keira who had her beautiful, long hair cut short at the weekend in aid of The Little Princess Trust. The charity provides real hair wigs free of charge to children and young adults who have sadly lost their own hair due to cancer treatment and other illnesses.
We are all very proud of you Keira on doing such a kind thing for others. We all think your new hair style is gorgeous too and you look very grown up! Well done!
Take a look at the before and after photographs below.
Today, Year 3 & 4 were visited by the Mayor of Thorne, Susan Durrant. The Mayor answered some very challenging and interesting questions from the children. Susain explained the many roles of her job and especially how she enjoys helping Thorne community. The children then used this information to create a poster about the Mayor. A fantastic end to a fantastic week!
Today, Class 10 had their family learning event where they made lots of amazing stained glass windows. The children really enjoyed making the windows using plastic wallets and tissue paper, as well as cutting out a template from black coloured card. Well done all!
As part of our new theme, we have been exploring physical features in Thorne. Today, we looked at Thorne Moors in more detail. After the children had found out some great facts about the Moors, they sketched out an image of the Moors. They then completed a self critique on the first image and then created a second improved sketch. The children’s sketches really were fantastic, well done everyone!
Year 3 & 4 were over the moon today to receive a letter of thanks from PC Wood on behalf of South Yorkshire Police.
Well done again to our children for sending such heartfelt letters to those working over the Christmas period.
Take a look at the letter below.
Thank you to all at South Yorkshire Police from the children at Green Top!
Today in Class 10, the children have been researching man made features in Thorne. Using their knowledge and chromebooks, the children have been looking at: Thorne Leisure Centre, The Bandstand, War memorial, Thorne Bridge, Trinity Academy and St Nicholas Church. The children then used images and their information to create their very own poster! They look brilliant!
Class 9 & 10 have today been introduced to their new theme ‘Where would you like to live in the future?’.The children will be comparing Thorne, Doncaster and Bridlington throughout the next 10 weeks and deciding where they would rather live. Today, we split the classes into 2 groups and completed 2 separate tasks. Mrs Ogle took a group of children around Thorne looking for Human and Physical features. Can you remember any which you saw? Whereas, Mr Spetch took a group of children on a walk to Sainsbury’s & Lidl where they completed questionnaires with shoppers about Thorne as a town and the landmarks which they were aware of. This afternoon the children then sketched some of the landmarks in Thorne, they look amazing! A great first day back for Year 3!
