Easter Fun 🐣

It is so lovely to see the photographs of you having fun at home and making lots of special memories! Please keep sending them in, they’re making me so happy seeing your smiling faces! Here’s some pictures of Scott, Cohen, Amelia and Isobel enjoying their time at home

School learning legend!

Elizabeth has been such a stick-ability Stan. She has being working very hard on her Easter learning in school and also has been working hard to get used to our new distancing and cleaning rules in school to help keep herself, her friends and her teachers safe! Well done and thanks for being a superstar.

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.

Class 13 Learning Legend!

Some super distance learning again today, I’ve loved seeing all your photographs of your work you have done at home! I could have chosen lots of learning legends but today’s is Emily Rothwell. Emily has been super motivated completing all of her  slides and then also completed an activity from the menu!
Emily has written a detailed set of instructions, including many features from the rubric, based on sewing a planet which the children have completed in G-Block.

Awesome Emily – Well done, I’m sure Mrs Green will be very proud of this too! 🙂
