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!

Unfortunately FS2 have had to cancel their walk to the Delves tomorrow afternoon due to not having enough volunteers to walk with the children. Instead, we have decided we will take some of the children to help out at the allotments. We have lots of weeding, planting and digging to do to keep our allotment in good condition. Any parents who were looking forward to spending the afternoon with the children are more than welcome to join us. Please call the school office to confirm your attendance and then you can meet us in the office at 1:15.
We had such a great day at Sherwood Pines today. We wish we could of stayed for much longer! The children had lots of fun exploring the forest and taking part in the Gruffalo Orienteering Course and the Zog Walk. Here are some pictures of what one of our groups got up to. More photos to follow!
Unfortunately due to the weather forecast tomorrow we have taken the decision to cancel the walk tomorrow for EYFS children. We are hoping to rearrange to another date before the end of term weather permitting!
Thank you to all parents and carers who offered their support to walk with us and we hope you can join us next time.
Thank you for your understanding
Miss Carter, Miss Schon, Miss Vaughn and Miss Salter
The children really enjoyed planting bulbs and flowers in the park with the help of ‘friends of Thorne Park’ who kindly supplied the flowers and bulbs and invited us to help out. The weather wasnt great but it didn’t stop the children having a lovely time. Thanks again to the parent helpers
