The Brilliant Club!

Some of the Year 5 pupils have taken part in a University Scholars programme this year. They enjoyed university style tutorials and had to write a 1000 word final assignment! Each child that participated showed true resilience and motivation to complete the course and achieve their absolute best.

Last night, they graduated from the programme and I was so proud of each and every one of them. Well done to you all – you should all be extremely proud of yourselves!

Girls football tournament winners!

A huge well done to the Green Top girls who won the tournament this afternoon against the other pyramid schools. You were all amazing and you played so well as a team! I have really enjoyed working with you all over the past two years and I am so proud of how far you have all come!

Thank you as always to everyone who came to support our girls and a special shout out to Ryan M for being awesome at warming the girls up for me! 50hps to you all!

Rotation, Rotation, Rotation!

Today, Class 13 practised their direction and rotating skills by directing their partners around the playground. They directed them North, East, South, West and practised rotating clockwise and anticlockwise in degrees.

Well done!

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.

Leeds University!

Some of the Year 5 children are taking part in a university programme and to kick start the programme they enjoyed a launch trip to Leeds University! The children enjoyed participating in a tutorial led by a PHD student, a lecture in the lecture theatre, and a tour around the Leeds University campus! They thoroughly enjoyed their day and couldn’t believe how big the campus was!
