Green Top Allotment

At Green Top we are very excited that we have been given our own allotment. The EYFS children have been visiting over the last few weeks to begin planting our first seeds. The community in Thorne have been amazing and we have had lots of help and donations from the lovely people at the allotments. In addition to this, Mrs Hardman helped us to plant some seeds, Mrs Salter brought us some plants which had been donated by her dad and Mrs Cook has been busy weeding and looking after the allotment after school. Today some of the EYFS parents and children went to the allotments to continue weeding, adding top soil and planting some more plants. We had lots of fun in the sunshine! We will be visiting lots more over the next half term to keep our allotment weed-free and to sample the fruits and vegetables we are growing!

A big thank you to all the parents who have supported us over the last few weeks. Without you we would not be able to provide so many children with these opportunities!

The children who participated in the Doncaster Rovers ‘Play on the pitch’ tournament have made me extremely proud today. Not only did they play excellent football but kindness, determination and teamwork was demonstrated throughout both teams. In class we talk about how important crew is and why it is important to be part of a crew; today 16 children used those skills to be, frankly, incredible role models.

Both teams played dazzling football and really stuck to the task. Green Top team 1 managed to reach the semi-finals of the tournament, only conceding 1 goal in 7 matches (placed 3rd out of 40 teams)

A special mention to Louis-John who played as our target man striker and scored a hattrick in one game.

Thank you Y5/6 footballers and to Kelly Jackson-Powell at Doncaster Rovers for inviting us to this event.

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!

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!
