EYFS Celebration of learning

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.



Bake it Better Day!

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.

Well done Nahla!  We are all very proud of you!


Calla’s wonderful work

Calla had produced an amazing touch down task, using her rubric. She has written one of her best pieces of writing so far this year and all her hard work and determination will get her the step she deserves, it is a piece she should be proud of. Well done Calla, keep up the good work!

Green Top’s Pop-Up Chocolate Shop

A big thank you to all the parent’s, carers, family and friends who came to the Year 3 and 4 Pop-Up Chocolate Shop at school today. It was wonderful to have so much support – I hope you had the opportunity to taste your purchases!

The children have worked so hard over the last few months to design and create all aspects of the products – from the packaging production to the chocolate creation!

Well done to Kane and Megan for writing and presenting such a great introduction to the event – you both spoke with confidence and clarity in front of so many people!

Finally, a big thank you to all the staff, who have supported the children in their chocolate exploits over the last few weeks – Green Top really has resembled Willy Wonka’s factory at times – the children could not have done it without your assistance!

Choctastic Event, perfect for Chocoholics!

The hall was filled with great excitement this afternoon, as we prepared to sell our chocolate products.  Much thought had gone into the design of the chocolate and the packaging and the children had really enjoyed making their chocolates and adding lots of different flavourings.  We had chocolate lollies and bars and individual chocolates – all hand made!  Class 8 were so pleased that we were supported by so many parents and carers and were amazed at how quickly their products were sold.  Our hot chocolate proved to be very popular too!  A big thank you to all who supported us this afternoon – and very well done to Class 8 from Mrs. Raper and Miss Bisby – your chocolates were amazing!

Goodbye party for Baby Daniel

On Tuesday, Class 9 had a celebration and goodbye end of year party for Roots of Empathy. baby Daniel came to visit and we sang songs, played, ate party food and drank juice. We all had lots of fun and had a wonderful time reflecting on everything we had learnt over the year.
