Rainforest documentary

Class 14 have been learning all about the living environments of the rainforest. They have looked at the different layers of the rainforest, what the conditions of each layer are like  and how the animals within the layer have adapted to life there.

 

The children have had great fun making a David Attenborough inspired documentary, discussing some of their findings so far.

We have shared our video for your enjoyment 🙂

 

Fantastic Footballers

Well done to the Year 5 and 6 boys who took part in Wednesday night’s regional tournament. 28 schools across Doncaster took part in this event with Green Top coming in 2nd Place overall. It was great to see such fantastic teamwork with children making their team a ‘crew’. It was a pleasure to take you all! A BIG well done to those involved.

Dodgeball, girls football and hockey tournaments coming soon!

Key Learning Dates 2018/19

Our recent parent working group on the topic of holidays and attendance suggested Green Top publish our key dates for parents. Phase teams will send home details of celebration events and family learning etc but the dates below are what we have already planned into the calendar and which are crucial dates for the school.

To help you enjoy valuable family time we have also arranged our school calendar to help families plan holidays and long weekends together. These dates are: Friday 28th September and Monday 1st October and Friday 28th June and Monday 1st July.

As you know we are have planned a two week half term in the Autumn term, beginning Monday 22nd October. This should allow parents to find cheaper holidays for their families.
