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 15 had great fun during Diversity Week. We made our own self portraits using oil pastels. We learnt how to use the pastels and the effects that we could achieve with them. We explored light and dark, colour and layering before we attempted our final piece. After that, we considered our backgrounds and how they could reveal our personalities and uniqueness. I must say, the final products are truly amazing and they are of the highest quality. It was brilliant to see how the children developed and improved their skills with this material over the week as well as using the sketching skills that they had already developed with Mrs Green.
Well done to Henry, Louis-John, Callum, Alex and Jayden who represented Green Top at a maths quiz, hosted by Trinity Academy. The boys had to work as a team to complete a range of puzzles to crack a code. The Y6 teaching team are very proud of you all!
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.’
Wow – what a great day we have had! I had the pleasure of accompanying some of the Year 6 children on Adam’s Ark where we enjoyed sailing down the canal. Although the first group got incredibly wet it didn’t dampen our spirits and the group still enjoyed opening the bridges and the locks. A nice hot chocolate soon helped us to warm up! The second group were equally as fantastic and also enjoyed taking charge of sailing the boat!
Yesterday, class 15 took part in a science experiment linked to Darwin’s theory of evolution. The activity allowed us to explore a wide variety of beak types that can be seen within the bird population, as well as developing our understanding of the way in which beak shape is related to the available food sources within an environment.
