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

EasyPeasy App!

This week was the launch of our EasyPeasy App. I am so pleased to have welcomed parents already into the EasyPeasy pod! Don’t forgot to return your slip with your name and number and you can receive a text with the latest game  to get your child School ready! Today we tried the game of the week ‘sock puppets’ .

The focus of this game is writing and a simple game where children can explore using narrative and their creative thinking to tell a story. Skills children will need for creative writing when they are ready! Have fun at home and don’t forget to comment in the forum so we can see how much fun you are having!

As part of World Book Day staff have written a quote about reading.  Can you spot them around the corridors?  Maybe you would like to write a quote about reading and share it with your class.

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.

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!

Story Club Fun !!

We had a fantastic night in story club on Tuesday – we read “One snowy night” and then each child made their own hedgehog model to take home. The children were so well behaved and enthusiastic about the activity – we love sharing books and making crafts linked to them.
