In between doing our assessments this week, the children have been engaging in some superb activities to help unwind and get creative. Yesterday, the Year Two children looked carefully at different fruits and did some beautiful observational drawings.
Class 7 are making the most of the sunshine and have enjoyed painting outside. Their landscapes look amazing, they get better each work and have learnt some fab art skills this year! Super effort children

A huge well done to our boys who played in the tournament at keepmoat over the weekend. They played against some really strong teams and managed to get through to the semi-finals.
Well done boys!
Misha brought in some amazing homework this week. He’s been busy gardening and doing some awesome maths. Well done Misha! I can’t wait to see what you do next!

We had our open the book assembly yesterday and some of the audience got a chance to be part of it! Everyone listened to the story carefully and joined in with the song at the end. Everyone showed our guests how great Green Top children are, we are very proud of you all.
We are working hard at school to develop your child’s handwriting skills. Here are a few simple ways you can help support your child with their handwriting…
1. Practise letter movements
Children get better at producing letters by practising letter movements: big letters on concrete with chalks; little letters in shaving foam; letters in sand, jelly and on paper.
The same is true of joins between letters. If children learn the correct movements for basic joins, they will use them efficiently when writing on paper.
2. Plan handwriting into every day
Try to encourage your child to write something everyday. This could be a shopping list for your weekly shop or writing a story of their own to share with you.
3. Reward all writing
Children need to build confidence in their writing. By rewarding their writing efforts with a simple sticker or tick chart will encourage them to continue writing and build their confidence in their own abilities. We will always give extra house points in school to encourage anything extra your child does at home!
If you would like any support with handwriting or the cursive scheme Green Top follow, please feel free to see me or your child’s class teacher.
