This morning year 1 had a fabulous celebration event linked to their theme ‘what secrets do the castle walls tell us? A king and queen from each class was selected for the occasion by who had the smartie hidden in their cake! Riley became king and Ava became queen for the event. The children then enjoyed a banquet of cheese and crackers, gingerbread, fruit and juice whilst they took it in turn to entertain the royal guests with dancing, gymnastics and tricks. They all managed to make the king and queen laugh, smile and cheer! The event was finished with a jousting competition that even some of our parents took part in. Great fun was had by all!
The community of Thorne have come out today to take part in Green Top’s Picnic in the Park. The choir, cheerleaders and other talented Green Top children are all performing in Thorne Park this afternoon.
Class 4 and class 5 enjoyed a fantastic day visiting Lincoln Castle linked to our theme ‘Whats secrets do the castle walls tell us?’. The children enjoyed knight training which included trying on armour, archery, jousting and dressing the knight ready for battle. They then enjoyed taking part in a Medieval banquet where they took on the roles of King, Queen, Lord, Lady, servants, dancers and jesters, as well as sampling cheese and biscuits, gingerbread men and fruit.
After a picnic in the sunshine, the children had the opportunity to walk the castle walls and take in the fabulous views of Lincoln, the castle prison and the castle grounds.
