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!

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!

Is your child using the latest version of Timetables Rockstars?

I have been notified by TTRS (Maths Circle) that many children are using out-of-date versions of the game which may not have the new functionalities.

It’s important that they use the latest versions of the app and and website to ensure they receive the most secure, feature-rich and enjoyable experience of Times Tables Rock Stars. Some of the versions are so far behind that they’re missing out on key updates. 


If using the website at home, please ask parents to visit play.ttrockstars.com/reset to load the latest version in their device’s browser. Otherwise please to update the Times Tables Rock Stars app from the app store.

Year 4: Multiplication Tables Check (MTC)

Year 4 parents, please find information regarding the MTC which the children will sit in June.

We are working really hard on times tables in school and will continue to do so throughout the year in the run up to the MTC.

You can help at home by encouraging your child to use their TTRockstars account regularly. Jamming and Soundcheck modes are particularly useful.

Crew Knowles: Awesome Heidi!

Heidi fetched her two well-deserved trophies to share with her crew last week! One for her fantastic dancing and the other for her football! Wow, well done Heidi! Keep up the amazing work outside of school!

Crew Knowles: Odd Sock Day!

We had lots of odd socks yesterday in support of Anti-Bullying Week! We talked about the importance of kindness and celebrating everyone’s differences. We also listened to a lovely story read by the Learning Council all about being the kind kid!

Here are just some of our odd socks!

Lest We Forget…

Our children have spent the week leading up to Armistice day learning about the reason we wear the red poppy and have produced these stunning examples to display in our corridors.

A beautiful and fitting tribute to the fallen.
