Beating Siri!

Class 10 love challenging Siri with their times table knowledge! If they manage to write their answer down before Siri answers they get a house point. As you can see lots of the children have been earning lots of house points!

I have challenged the children to try this at home to see if they can beat their score next week!

Identifying right angles!

This morning, class 10 have been identifying right angles within shapes. They have been working really hard using tools to help them and they have even been able to explain whether or not other angles are greater than or less than a right angle.

Super work class 10!


Geometry fun!

This afternoon we have been focusing on the names and properties of 2-D and 3-D shapes. The children have enjoyed learning new vocabulary and sharing this in their discussions. I have challenged the children to identify 3-D shapes within their homes and to count the number of verticies the shapes have ready to share tomorrow!

Sophia the super star!

A huge well done to Sophia who has been amazing today in our reading lesson. Sophia has been a can-do Colin and has really worked on her reflection skills to be able to move her learning forward this year and this has been evident in today’s learning, allowing Sophia to achieve green standard!. I am really proud of you Sophia, keep it up!


Class 10 have really enjoyed playing benchball this term in PE. It has been amazing to see their progress over the term and how well they are now working as a team! We can’t wait for our match against another school next term!

Literacy fun!

Today, class 10 loved their literacy starter! They were given the title ‘Buzz the pug in school’ and they had to write a sentence each in a relay to create a short story. They were awarded bonus points for adding: prepositions, contracted words, adverbs and adjectives. The children then shared their stories to the rest of the class. I was so impressed with their efforts and they all had lots of fun!

Super maths!

Clasd 10 have been amazing today in maths today. They have been focusing on addition and subtraction questions and how to use the inverse to check their answers.

I have seen amazing resilience skills today and I am so proud!



I have been made aware of a potential closure of the memorial park due to the forecast of high winds.

The Thorne Moorends Town Council Facebook page states

‘Current forecasts suggest that we may experience wind gusts of up to 56mph overnight and tomorrow. If such winds do arise, due to the high number of trees in the park we may need to close access to Thorne Memorial Park for safety reasons. Access to the café however will be maintained. 

We know that a number of parents use the park as a shortcut to Green Top Primary School so please potentially plan your journeys on the basis that access to the park may be restricted.’
