Adam’s Ark!

Wow – what a great day we have had! I had the pleasure of accompanying some of the Year 6 children on Adam’s Ark where we enjoyed sailing down the canal. Although the first group got incredibly wet it didn’t dampen our spirits and the group still enjoyed opening the bridges and the locks. A nice hot chocolate soon helped us to warm up! The second group were equally as fantastic and also enjoyed taking charge of sailing the boat!


Maths is fun at Green Top!

The Year 5 life skills groups with Mrs Walton used weight and measure to bake cookies in preparation for the following days maths lesson about fractions.

They were rewarded for their hard work by eating the cookies after they divided them into the correct fractions.




Sensory Snowball Fight

To get us ini the Christmas spirit, Sensory Circuit started with a snowball fight today. The blurry photos show how fast everyone was moving, and we all ended up hot and sweaty after all the fun had finished.

To prepare ouselves for Christmas, our mindfulness meditation was called ‘The Gift of You’ and reminded us that not all presents can be bought, and that being around for other people can be the greatest gift of all.


A Time for Giving

Over the last few weeks, children and staff at Green Top have demonstrated how Christmas is not only a time for receiving but also for giving, as they have donated food and toiletries to the ‘Pay It Forward Advent’ in aid of the Thorne Community Foodbank.

Children in Year 6 then gave their time to support the volunteers at the Food bank in giving out bags. Paul Brian even sang a song to get everyone in a Christmas mood.

Support of the Food bank will continue into the new year, with groups of Year 6 children going down every week to help.
