Thorne factory shop winners!

Here are a few photos from the Factory Shop 50 years celebration event today. Class 10 were the local winners of the competition and they were given the opportunity to; perform some songs today, see their art work on display, have their faces painted and they were given goody bags and buns as a well done treat!

Well done Class 10! Mrs Clay and I are so proud of you. You all sang beautifully and you were a credit to Green Top! As always a huge thank you to parents and carers for supporting the children. I know they had fun and we appreciate you giving up your Saturday afternoon to support them!

I shall add more photos on Class 10’s blog and please keep your fingers crossed we win the final round!

Year 3/4 Learning Visit


Trip letters will be going out tomorrow for Year 3/4’s visit to the York Chocolate Story on Monday 3rd June (Year 4) and Tuesday 4th June (Year 3).

On both days, we are due to return back to school for 3.30pm therefore you will receive two things that will need filling out and handing back to us giving permission for it going out of school hours.

Can you please fill in both consent forms, sign and hand them back to your child’s class teacher ASAP!

Thank you very much for your patience and continued support. It’s going to be an amazing day for the children!!


The Year 3/4 Team

3/4 benchball

A number of children from years 3&4 played in a bench ball tournament against Marshland this evening. I was so impressed with how well they played. We didn’t get the overall win but we managed to score lots of points over the course of the games.

Thank you as always to all the parents and carers who came to supper the children. It is hugely appreciated. We hope to see you all at the next game after half term!

Lego foundation visit Green Top

These children made me so proud today completing a learning ambassador tour of our school for 16 teachers from Billund and the Lego foundation in Denmark. The visitors were blown away by the passion shared by our students and the learning produced at Green Top. Well done to all the staff and children involved! Wow!

Factory shop 50 years competition

Class 10 entered the factory shop 50 years competition last week and I am so pleased to say they won the local competition and are through to the next stage (the national competition). They had to create a piece of artwork which represents our community. They included the pit gates, Thorne church, peel hill and the mayors chain. Of course, we added children in green top uniform too! Then the children included self portraits with the quote “we are all different, we are all unique but together  we make a community”.

The children have been invited to a reveal of the art work at the Factory shop where their artwork will now be displayed for all to see. This will take place on Saturday 18th May at 2:00pm. 

We are keeping our fingers crossed we win the next round and the prize of £1000 for our school. Well done Class 10, Mrs Clay and I are so proud of you all as always!
