I would like to say a big Thank You to all the children and teachers at Green Top for the fantastic work they completed to celebrate World Autism Week during Aspiration Week on the theme of “It’s OK to be Different!”.
We shared stories, learnt how to support a friend with autism and learnt that we a re all different – and that’s OK!
The class activities inspired one year 5 boy to write about his own personal experiences and then share it in assembly!
As a result of our activities, we won a prize from TTS Group – an education supplier – of £150 of resources to support communication and sensory needs! A fantastic prize that will be put to very good use!!
If anyone has any questions about Autism or would like more information, please contact Mrs Graves in school
Class 6 have had 2 lessons this week on how to tie our shoe laces. We have found this a little tricky but we have all been a ‘Stickability Stan’ and we won’t give up! If you want to practise more at home, you will be awarded with 10 house points.
Mrs Hay 🙂
Well done Ava!
Ava’s amazing design has been selected as a winner from lots of entries from all over Doncaster, in the Doncaster Book Award ‘Design-a-Dragon’ Competition. Ava put lots of effort into her Dragoon design at book club and at home and her design has been chosen as a winner by the Book Award Committee! Ava has now been invited to a ceramic arts day with a professional artist during half term, where she will be able to bring her design to life and make her dragon design out of clay!
Ava and her winning dragon!
Congratulations Ava – I’m sure you’re going to have an amazing time!
FROG LEARNING has been launched! Tomorrow your child will bring home a sticker with their username and password to log into FROG LEARNING. Mrs Wallace and I have set online assignments to complete. Each time your child completes an assignment, they will be awarded with 10hps each.
Log in here from tomorrow at 3pm…
The newest area in school was installed over the summer holidays in the KS1 outdoor area. ‘The Hub’ consists of the ‘Learning Hub’ and the ‘Nurture Hub.’
The Learning Hub is an area where children, from across the school, get extra support in their learning for English and Maths.
The Nurture Hub is where we support the child’s social and emotional needs, in a relaxing and calming environment.
Both Hubs have been busy since term started and we are looking forward to working with more children as the year goes on.
The Learning Hub: Mrs Graves:
The Nurture Hub: Mrs Fitzpatrick, Mrs Rafferty, Mrs Dewsnap and Mrs Dale.
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!
How do Class 10 learn about the water cycle? By creating it in a plastic bag of course! We have created perfect miniature climates inside clear plastic backs and attached them to the window.
As the sun shines through the window, it heats the water allowing it to evaporate into water vapour. As it cools, it condenses back into water droplets – in a clear demonstration of the water cycle!! See if you see it working!
In science, we have been learning how materials change state and in maths, we have been looking at statistics in maths and how to read and draw tally charts, bar charts and line graphs – so it seemed like the perfect opportunity to use chocolate to investigate our theme in a little more detail!
To complete the tally charts, we quizzed year 4 on their preferred chocolate flavours and then converted the results into a bar chart – making sure we had a correct scale and appropriate labels.
To generate data for our line graph, we investigated how quickly chocolate melted and compared the temperature of the water as it cooled the chocolate! Class 10 showed great restraint with all the melted chocolate around the class room!
Lucas has tried so hard with his writing, producing a very persuasive advert about his new chocolate product. He used our imitate and innovate texts, together with our television adverts, to make his writing so amazing. Well done Lucas!
