Week 2 plans for home learning

As you will know next week and the week after should have been the Easter holidays. However, Green Top will remain open to key worker families. Therefore there will still be people available to answer your calls, texts and emails Monday to Friday 8am-5pm.

We will be continuing with Google hangouts and Google classroom in the same way we have this week and there will still be work set for English and Maths skills lessons daily. In addition there will be fun activities to complete as part of the Expedition learning plans. It would be great to catch up with you using one of these tools each day. We encourage you to have some down time too but don’t want to lose your enthusiasm and engagement in the home learning success we’ve had this week. It is such an uncertain time and all staff, children and parents who’ve spoken to me have really valued the positive impact the communication with friends and staff has had on the Green Top children and wider community. Unfortunately, no one knows how long this period of enforced school closure will last for and lots of you have asked me for more ideas of things to do at home when you’re stuck in the house.

We’d like to hear from you as often as possible and therefore will continue with our safe and well checks next week. As always if you need to talk or have anything to ask we’re at the end of the phone, email or text service.

Hope to see you all in hangouts or google classroom next week, send your teachers/phase leaders lots of photos too and look out for next weeks challenge for feel good Friday.

Daily Critique!

I notice… how many children are challenging themselves to achieve in their maths today.

Real motivated Mo’s just like Imogen and Junior!

I praise… children working above age related expectations!

I wonder… how many nursery children can now write their first names independently?



Today’s Learning Legends are…

Junior and Imogen!

They have been true Motivated Mo’s today by practicing writing their surnames as well as their first names! They have continued to practice the letter formation and the order of the letters throughout the day, challenging themselves to achieve. Well done!

Monday Maths

The nursery children have had a magical Monday exploring maths at home. Deacon worked hard to order the numbers on the playing cards while Harper, Ellis and Emelia explored 2D shapes by playing dominoes and creating some gorgeous Easter pictures. What a fantastic day! I am so impressed with your ‘hard work’ today

Francesca’s number bonds to 10.

Today’s Learning postcard is going to Francesca for a fantastic number bonds to 10 video, it made me and Miss Schon laugh so much that I had to share it with the rest of the teachers in school to make everyone smile. Well done for being an amazing Motivate Mo and putting together such a great video of your learning. Thanks for making us all smile and laugh!

30.3.20 learning

I feel so over whelmed at how hard everyone is working at home to complete daily learning for English, Maths and Expedition. I am so proud of everyone taking part. It is so humbling to know that even at home you still want to learn and take part in our special school community. Today has been amazing after not seeing any of you for a week, that I can still chat to you on the classroom or talk to you on hangouts, it has seriously cheered me up loads!

Thank you class 8 you are all learning legends! It’s got to be Motivated Moe today, well done everyone!


Well done class 8, keep working hard! See you all tomorrow.
