Learning Legend Round-Up

Congratulations to all our learning legends this week! Special shout outs go to Annabel and Poppy who have shared some wonderful homework they have been busy with at home.

Annabel has made a lollipop replica of Amelia Earhart’s first aeroplane, as well as a fantastic fact file all about her. Whilst, Poppy has made a fantastic 3D cardboard model of a car – well done girls!

Anti-Bullying Awareness Week

This week kicked off with odd socks day on Monday and Class 6 have shared some wonderful reflections about anti-bullying, linking their ideas to our Being Kind HoWL. The children have also enjoyed designing their own jigsaw pieces to show how we are all one piece of the picture in stopping bullying.

Tots Rugby

Class 6 thoroughly enjoyed their Tots Rugby session this afternoon. It was great to see their beaming faces zooming around the playground and practising their catching skills and touchdowns – great job everybody!

Keep your eyes peeled for more information about regular tots rugby sessions starting after Christmas.

Year 1 Children in Need 2020

Well done to all the boys and girls in Year1 who celebrated Children in Need day 2020 with a fantastic display of dots and Pudsey bear ears 🙂

The children showed great empathy and understanding when discussing some of the ways that children around the world might need help and they shared fabulous ideas to help one another too!

Till next year, Pudsey…

Year 1 reminders for Monday

Hello Year 1


Just a couple of reminders for Monday.


On Monday we are doing a tag rugby session in the afternoon for 30 minutes so you will all need to come in your PE kit on that day and this be be used as our weekly PE session.

Also on Monday we are wearing odd socks in support of anti- bullying week. You still need to wear your PE kit but you can wear some crazy socks over the top. We cant wait to see you all.


Have a fun and safe weekend!

Well done to Poppy who is our Out of this World champ this week. Not only is Poppy a real Motivated Mo every day, always trying her best but she is super kind and always very polite to others. A great role-model to her crew mates.

And a big well done to our learning legends this week, including: Poppy, Samantha, Cara, Harley, Savannah, Kaila and Harry. Great job guys 🙂

Diwali Celebrations

This week, Class 6 have enjoyed learning about the Indian festival of Diwali which begins on Saturday. We have learned about the story of Rama and Sita, practised our fine motor skills by carefully colouring rangoli patterns and listened to some Diwali-inspired Indian music.

Welcome back 2.11.2020

It was great to welcome Class 6 back today after our half-term break! All of the children have had a great day back and it was lovely to see them well rested and ready to learn again 🙂

Well done to our learning legends today – Bliss from Crew Dutton and for Crew O’Neill: Harry, Francesca, Harley, Teddy, Cara, Reef and Kaila!

There can be one entry per child and all entries must be entered by a photograph sent to familylearning@greentopschool.org by the 12pm Tuesday 27th October. As photographs are entered they will be blogged on the website for all to see. All students who enter will receive a ‘treat’ on their return to school on 2nd November.
