Thank you Mel!

A huge thank you from us to Mel for coming in to visit us today. Mel shared with us some of her father’s professional art work and showed us how to create some illustrations. She even created us a drawing mascot who we gave the name ‘Marshmallow’.

Before Mel left she asked us to look carefully at Vincent Van Gogh’s 1888 ‘Sunflowers’. This afternoon, the children loved recreating drawings of sunflowers in vases.

Thank you Mel for being such a great inspiration to our children.

See you soon!

Awesome Oliver and Faith

Oliver has once again been doing some fantastic home learning over half term. He has explored Thorne and taken photographs. He has then compared his modern day photographs to old images of the same place. If you would like to take a look at Oliver’s home learning, it is proudly displayed in our classroom. Well done Oliver!

 

Faith has been so so brave over half term after several visits to hospital. Here is Faith with her bravery awards. Well done Faith for being a superstar! I am very proud of you!

Dan the Builder in KS1

Dan the builder came to visit the KS1 children last week to talk about how houses and other buildings are made. He talked about the different materials needed to create a house and what they were each used for. All of the children and staff loved his visit and found out lots of interesting facts. Thank you Dan for taking time to visit us!

If you can tell your teacher something you learnt from Dan or an interesting fact about materials used to build a house, you will be rewarded with 10 house points!

McDonald’s Visit

Mike, the owner of the Thorne branch McDonald’s came to visit KS1 today to inform the children about why he opened a restaurant business in Thorne and why it is a huge success in our town.

The children asked some excellent questions and now have lots of great information to support their learning exploration work.

A huge thank you from us all at Green Top to Mike for giving up his time and coming to visit us today.
