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
Year 5/6 enjoyed participating in a range of activities for Sports Relief. These included: basketball, running, football, tennis and yoga. The children showed great determination and sportsmanship throughout and enjoyed raising awareness for Sports Relief.
Class 14 and 15 were joint winners of the Year 5/6 attendance award! However, Class 14 managed to sneak it into our classroom where we are hoping it will stay! Keep up the great work guys and keep coming to school!!
Year 5/6 have had a great family learning event today! They had such fun making slime (or at least trying to!). When they weren’t brewing slime they were busy creating and designing lots of potions, bottles and labels! Some even learnt how to draw Harry Potter!
Year 5/6 took part in a Harry Potter inspired transfiguration lesson today where they looked at changing state. The children melted chocolate and made toast and had to decide whether the changes were reversible or irreversible!
Year 5 and 6 came together today and FaceTimed Mr Jim Kennedy – the former director of NASA! It truly was a fantastic experience, listening to Jim and some of the children even had the chance to ask him their own questions!
Last Thursday, Year 5 went to Hatfield Water Park and participated in various water activities including: rafting, canoeing and jetty jumping! It was a fantastic experience which we all loved!
The children impressed everyone with their excellent team work, communication and determination. The resilience and team work throughout the canoe treasure hunt was especially impressive and I’m sure lots of the children had aching arms the next day!
The children were extremely brave throughout the day as a lot of the children (me included) were nervous about the deep water but this did not stop them from performing some impressive jetty jumps!
It truly was a fantastic start to the year and the trip will have no doubt created memories that will last a life time.
