Y3/4 Celebration of Learning

Year 3/4 will celebrate their expedition ‘Ancient Innovators: What did the Romans do for Doncaster?’ on Thursday 7th December between 2pm and 3pm.

We would like to invite Y3/4 parents to a coffee afternoon in the hall where you can drop in between the times of 2pm and 3pm to sit with your child and look through all of their learning on the Romans! We will also launch our website all about the Romans which the children have been working hard on for their expedition product!

More details will follow but we look forward to celebrating our learning with you soon!


Wow wow wow! What an amazing morning we’ve had with Chloe and Charlie from STAG-ED who came to perform the pantomime Cinderella. We had so much fun, laughter and songs. The children absolutely loved it. What a treat for a drizzly Monday morning!
The cast even sang our birthday girl, Isabella ‘Happy birthday’.
A huge thank you to the Green Top Friends committee who paid for us to have this wonderfully festive treat.


Last week in phonics we were learning the sounds x/y/z.

Please check in with the phonics homework sheet that was given out on Friday 1st December. This is specific to your child’s learning and will really help to boost their progress if you can practise the sounds with them and have a go at reading the words.

This week is a consolidation week so there will be no new sounds to learn, if you can keep going over the previous taught sounds to ensure that your child is as confident as they can be that would be great.

Year 3/4 dodgeball! 🏆

I would just like to give a massive shout out to our Year 3 and 4 pupils who represented Green Top in our Trust dodgeball tournament! What a super set of performances you put in! There were some really really tight games and I think it is fair to say that fun was had by all.

Most importantly, the children represented the school and themselves really well. Thank you to the adults who took our players to the tournament – it is really appreciated!

Harry Potter Day – Year 5 and 6

On Monday 11th December Year 5 and Year 6 are having a Harry Potter day, where they will take part in a variety of themed activities linked to the film/book series.  The children are invited to come dressed up in clothes linked to Harry Potter if they choose; please note there is no expectation for you to purchase a costume for this themed day.

When we visit Harry Potter Studios, it will be the ‘Hogwarts in the snow’ experience.  As part of our themed day, we would like to watch the film ‘Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire’ as it has a number of winter snow scenes.  The film rating is 12A – if you would NOT consent to your child watching this film, please let your child’s crew leader know as soon as possible so alternative plans can be made.

Thank you

The Year 5 and Year 6 Staff Team
