Water Safety at Hatfield Water Park

A huge well done to the group of Year 4 children who went to complete the water Safety course at Hatfield Water Park.

These children are already in Stage 3 at swimming so were chosen to take part in this course where they learnt  about the dangers of open water and how best to deal with this in case of an accident.

It was incredibly cold but the children showed sheer resilience and determination by getting to the end of the course.

They are all absolute super stars!!

Adopt a grandparent scheme

I know I speak on behalf of Class 10 when I say how much we have thoroughly enjoyed our community link with Parklands care home and participating in the adopt a grandparent scheme. Over the past year, we have shared many learning experiences. We have read numerous books and played many games. I have seen so many children grow in confidence; from our first visit where I had many quiet and shy year 3’s who were nervous to go and show their books, to today where I had a class full of confident children, beaming with excitement and who are very much so year 4 ready and I couldn’t be prouder. The residents have really enjoyed spending time with Class 10 and I know the feeling is mutual. This afternoon, we spent our last visit of the year doing Zumba and singing songs. Here are a a few short videos. As you can see, fun was had by all! You have put a lot of smiles on a lot of people’s faces during these visits and you should be very proud of yourselves.

Well done Class 10 and as always, you make both Mrs Clay and I so proud!

Out of school achievements in F2 and KS1

Well done to everyone who brought their certificates, medals and trophies in today to share in our assembly.  We always love to hear about the activities and clubs you go to and we are so proud to celebrate with you.  This week we had dancers, swimmers and football players.  Well done to you all!

It was great to hear from the boys football coach about their amazing and much improved football skills.  Congratulations on coming runners up in your tournament at the weekend.  You should be very proud of coming 2nd out of 12 teams.   Keep up the hard work I am sure you will do so well when the season starts.


3/4 Rounders tournament

Can I just say a huge well done to everyone who played tonight. I genuinely couldn’t be prouder. It’s not a sport we have been practising for long but I have seen huge improvements in each and everyone of you and it was a pleasure to watch you all play!

We had one team who were the overall winners, another who came third and our final team who came joint fifth. All schools who joined in were brilliant: King Edward, Marshland, Brooke, West Road and Hatfield Woodhouse; the children were a credit to their schools. All members of staff from the other schools commented on how well our players played and how they showed good sportsmanship! So there is 50 hps from me to everyone who played tonight!

As always, thank you to all parents and carers who came to watch and support our children and to the many staff who gave up their time to support- we couldn’t do these events without you!

Thank you again,

Miss Blackham

The launch of the KS1 Safety boards

Last week we were so proud to launch our KS1 safety boards both within school and out in the local community.  We had the pleasure of the local Mayor attending and praising the hard work of our Y1 and Y2 children.  A group of representatives from each class, their parents, Thorne Mayor and a representative from the Thorne Times attended a small launch in Thorne Memorial Park where one of our safety boards is located.  This was followed by a larger launch back at school where all children and parents were invited to attend and celebrate with us.  The children have worked incredibly hard on developing their knowledge of road safety, skateboarding, riding a scooter safely and bike safety.

We are so proud of you all and we love seeing our work out in the Local Community.

Well done to all of KS1.

KS1 Family Learning


What a fantastic afternoon for our KS1 Family Learning! The children and their grown ups had lots of fun matching foods to their different food groups, doing some exercises to see the difference in resting pulse and pulse rate after exercise, some painting of fruit and even some potato stamping to produce beautiful pictures.

All of the children filled out an exit ticket about what we learned today and we will record these in Theme books.

A huge thank you to all of the parents/ carers and families who attended today and embraced all of the activities so enthusiastically!!

We appreciate your continued support!

Hope you all enjoyed it!

The KS1 Team 😊


We are so proud of all the achievements in key stage 1 and reception today.


We had our weekly house point winners that had been earning top house points for great learning and behaviour. I was so happy to see some of our yellow top wearers up there this morning setting a great example to the rest of school.

We had some amazing achievements in dancing too! Nahla had some beautiful photographs of her medals and she looked stunning in her Irish dancing outfit. It was amazing to see so many medals given out for our girls, well done!

Last but not least we had our gold award reading certificates. These children had read more than a hundred times and got to choose a book from the reading box. We also had lots of other children that were awarded with bronze and silver reading certificates and I was blown away that some were the second or third certificate to be awarded.


What incredibly talented children we have at Green Top! Keep working hard everyone we can’t wait to see what you achieve in the future.
