On Friday 10th December, we will be having a Christmas jumper day to raise money for the ‘Save the Children’ charity. Children are encouraged to come to school wearing a Christmas jumper or t-shirt and bring a donation of £1. Thank you for your support, we can’t wait to see your Christmas outfits!
Good luck on Sunday England! Make the children of year 4 proud! Although, we’re already very proud to be honest.

As part of this week’s community crew, we wanted to take part in ‘national walking month’. We talked about the benefits of walking from a health aspect to our mental health. As you can see from the pictures we certainly enjoyed the fresh air, sunshine and time to chat. Great work team year 4.
This Friday, Friday 30th April, marks the beginning of the Captain Tom 100 Challenge which will continue until Bank Holiday Monday 3rd May.
The family of Sir Captain Tom Moore is inviting the world to take inspiration from his famous 100 laps around his garden to celebrate Tom’s life, his generosity of spirit and the hope and joy he brought to millions.
YOU can join this celebration and take part in the Captain Tom 100 by setting yourself your own challenge based around the number 100!
Let the number 100 be your inspiration and do something amazing, whether it’s..
100 Star Jumps
100 laps of your garden
100 minutes of gaming
Baking 100 cupcakes
Singing for 100 minutes.
We would love to see lots of you taking part and taking lots of photographs of your challenges. Please send any photographs or videos to [email protected] so we can celebrate your contributions on the blog.
Here is a video with more information about the fundraising event.

Dear Parents and Carers
Next week is maths week at Green Top (4th – 7th May). We will be celebrating maths and to do this we will be doing the following:
- Each day you will be informed of a challenge you can complete at home and bring into school or email to [email protected]
- Each day there will be a FUN maths challenge on the blog for you to complete as a family at home
- Friday is NSPCC Maths day so we will be having a ‘maths’ dress up day (£1 donation)
Please see the school blog for links to the NSPCC maths day website, ideas for dress up and daily posts next week.
Tuesday’s challenge is: Maths is everywhere! Take a photograph of something maths related around our local community. This could be a percentage in a shop sale, a date on a building, a bus timetable or numbers on a traffic sign. Who will be the most creative? Send your photographs to [email protected]. Good Luck!
Last year was a huge success and enjoyed by all – we can’t wait to see what next week brings.

Crew Thurkettle are the best! They completed yet another crew challenger!
Today they had to turn the sheet over without anyone stepping off the sheet onto the floor!
They managed to do it with just 1 minute left from the 15 minutes time limit. Well done Crew Thurkettle! 👏👏👏
