XP Climate Conference ’22

On Thursday Evening, Miss Tortora and I had the pleasure of attending a learning celebration at XP East. It was a fantastic event to raise awareness of the impacts of Climate Change and what we can do as a community to help.

A huge shoutout to all of the children from across the Primary schools that attended and presented in front of over a hundred people. They shared their learning journey from our Spring Expedition ’Why should we protect our beautiful planet?’ In particular a big thank you to Thia, JJ and Georgia, along with their parents that represented Green Top. An added shout out to Jersey and Dexter for being a HUGE help selling the CD’s on our stall.

It was a great way to celebrate and showcase our Final Product and music video!


Year 3/4: Football Tournament at XP

On Friday, a small number of year 3/4 children had the wonderful opportunity to play in a football tournament with another school in our Trust (Plover). A big ‘shout-out’ to all the children for working hard and being kind. It made the afternoon competitive and very enjoyable. A special ‘shout-out’ to Niah for being player of the tournament – you worked your socks off for your team and never said a negative thing to anyone. A thank you to all the parents involved in taking the children and returning them, to Mr Overson for all your help and to Mr Mead (of Plover) for arranging a fantastic afternoon.

Year 3 and 4: GTGT 2022

Yesterday it was fantastic to see so many talented children perform for us in our phase crew meeting. We were blown away by the efforts and dedication that you all put in to practising and performing your acts.

It’s not an easy thing to get up and perform in front of an audience but you all smashed it and it showed such brilliant character growth for getting up there and having a go!

We are so proud of you!!

**We have voted in our crews today so we will be announcing the Year 3/4 winner tomorrow!**

Watch this space but you definitely all deserve 50 HoWL points for working hard!

Thank you, the year 3/4 team 🙂 x

Staff crew tonight 💚

Staff took part in their own staff crew sports day tonight. We felt exactly the same as some of the children did on sports day, when we were put outside of our comfort zone.

There were some falls, some competitiveness and lots of laughs!

What a great staff crew we have


get crew right, you get everything right 💚

Year 3 and 4 Celebration of Learning

It was great to see so many people at our celebration of learning on Tuesday. The children did a great job of sharing their learning from our expedition ‘Why is sugar not so sweet?’

As part of our celebration, we had a competition to guess how many sweets were in the jar. This was to help us raise even more money for our chosen charity – City Hearts. Congratulations to Isla for getting the closest guess of 260! The jar actually had 265 sweets in it!

Year 3/4 Celebration of Learning

Last night we had our celebration of learning for our last expedition of the year ‘Why is sugar not so sweet?’

The children lead the celebration and showcased the learning they had done throughout the 3 case studies. It was amazing to watch you all so confidently deliver your pieces in front of the audience, it was clear for all to see how much you have learnt and taken from this expedition. To top the sweet the night off there was the opportunity to try the products you have made before taking these home for a donation.

It was an incredibly successful night, thanks to you all. We appreciate all the support you have given us and for the money raised to go towards the charity, city hearts.

An overall shout out and well done to everyone for trying their best in their assessments last week. It was a super hot week but you all grappled with each test and showed such determination throughout them all. We are SO proud!!
