Sensory Circuit has gone all ZEN! Every morning, after completing their early morning sensory activities, some children have been learning how to meditate. It is a great way to start the day.
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.
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.
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!
The fun didn’t stop today as Year 5/6 had fun at flying lessons! They even had time to practise their duelling skills with their wands!
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!
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 Nurture Hub: Mrs Fitzpatrick, Mrs Rafferty, Mrs Dewsnap and Mrs Dale.
