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

Disco Dancing!

Thank you to the ‘Friends of Green Top’ for organising another fantastic disco. Children in Key Stages 1 & 2 had lots of fun chatting with their friends, eating treats and showing off their dance moves!

Thank you to our parents and carers for supporting this event.

Here’s a few photographs from tonight’s discos…


Year 2 Children attend the Town Council

Jaiden, Freya and Charleigh represented the school today by attending the Thorne and Moorends Town Council. The three children told the council and local observers all about their learning onThorne and the digital brochure they have created. Mrs Jackson and myself were so proud.

Welcome Back

Welcome back everyone. I hope you all had a great Easter. Welcome in particular to our new families in Nursery, we are all excited to see these children develop over their many years at Green Top.

As always, there is lots on this week. Trips, Visitors and exciting sessions have been planned for the staff to really ‘hook’ the children into their learning. Keep up to date with these events via the class blogs.

Can I remind all parents that we have ‘Celebrating your Child’s Learning 2018’ events next week. A chance for your children to lead you through their learning and what they and their teachers think are their strengths and areas for improvement.

Next week also sees the launch of our Key Stage 1 Learning product ‘I Love Thorne’, a digital brochure created by all our children in Year 1 and 2. The launch events next week are set to be very exciting.

So another exciting Term planned, I hope you enjoy it.

Green Top has got lots of Talent!


On Thursday 22nd March, we held our annual Green Top’s Got Talent event. There were 30 acts who took part in the auditions, performances and final show. We had an absolute treat of a show with various different acts including dancers, singers, boxing to music and gymnastics.

The winners were announced on the night, with Gwenyth, Megan and Emily receiving runners up awards and Tyler taking first place with his Ed Sheeran rendition.

We were overwhelmed by the confidence and attitude of everyone of our competitors and can’t wait to see what next year holds!

Thanks as always go to our judges and parents and carers for providing a great audience for the performers.

Well done guys!
