Autism Awareness Week Prize Winners!!

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

Ava’s Award-Winning Dragon!

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!

 

The Green Top Hub!!

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.

Collaborative afternoon for year2

IMG_1053 IMG_1054 IMG_1061 IMG_1066 IMG_1069 IMG_1070 IMG_1072 IMG_1076

This afternoon both year 2 classes got together to do some amazing collaborative learning about the parts of a castle. The children could choose who they worked with and painted a basic shape of a castle and labelled all the features. We all had lots of fun and we didn’t make  a mess on Mr Gravil’s carpet, hoooray!

We had a visit today from the Yorkshire Cricket Club and had an hour workshop with them. The children had loads of fun and had some great cricket skills! Definitely some future cricket stars at Green Top, watch out Joe Wroot!  A big thank you to mr Spetch for organising this afternoon and I think some children are keen to sign up for the allstars training camp!

Great Start to The Book Fair

The book fair opened on Friday morning  and it was lovely to see so many children excited about buying a new book!

There is a great selection of books at very reasonable prices – made even cheaper with the World Book Day token, that gives £1 off!

The Book Fair is on until Wednesday after school – come and buy a book and raise funds for school!
