What an absolute privilege to be able to take these students and staff to the xpose conference today. They shared their views and experiences in their workshops ‘we are crew too’ and ‘why is Green Tops roof Green?’
If you’re on Twitter please see the #xpose2019 for all the coverage of a truly amazing day.
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.
Thanks to Mrs Fenwick for sharing the photos from the Thornensians event at the weekend. We were delighted to support Mr Ambler and his team mates (many of whom are past or present parents). All the children who attended or took part walking out with the team have been talking about this experience with pride today. Well done all- a great community event! Mrs Fenwick shared the news of the ‘Junior Vase Final which took place at the National home of Rugby Union.
Thornensians has the chance of a life time to play at one of the best venues in the world. Freya Fenwick was picked to be the mascot of the team to walk out on to the pitch alongside the Captain of Thornensians, her Dad, James. Many children from Green Top were in stadium to watch and we’re also given the opportunity to be part of the Guard of Homiur for the players and Freya to walk through.
An amazing day and an experience of a lifetime for all.’
If you have time spare over the holidays, please login to Frog Learning and have a go at the tasks I have set you. I have assigned you a range of activities; please choose activities you want to work on (there are tutorial videos to help you too!)
There will be a treat on the first Tuesday back for everyone that has completed at least one assignment!! Please comment below and let me know how you get on!
Class 17 have been learning about Charles Darwin’s theory on adaptation. In Science we used a range of resources to use as Finches Beaks and used these resources to pick up a range of items in 30 seconds to see which beak was best adapted for picking up food.
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.’
