Many thanks to School Nurse, Pat Kemp and the Family Information Service and SaidSend for attending our coffee morning this morning.
It was the first time we have held a coffee morning in school in partnership with other services supporting families and it was well received by our parents and carers and family members who were able to attend.
We certainly hope to repeat it again in the future.
I have added a video below which gives a really good explanation of the Phase 5 sounds, this week we have been focusing on ay, ou, ie and ea.
Could you write some words with your children that contain these sounds? Maybe your children could highlight the sound within the word. They can do these in their homework books and I will give out house points.
To help you support your child in their phonics learning, here are the Phase 3 and Phase 5 sounds. By knowing these sounds, your child will feel more confident in tackling reading the real and pseudo words.
If your child can read words which include these sounds, please write them down in your child’s reading journal so they can be awarded extra house points!
I would like to say a big Thank You to all the children and teachers at Green Top for the fantastic work they completed to celebrate World Autism Week during Aspiration Week on the theme of “It’s OK to be Different!”.
We shared stories, learnt how to support a friend with autism and learnt that we a re all different – and that’s OK!
The class activities inspired one year 5 boy to write about his own personal experiences and then share it in assembly!
As a result of our activities, we won a prize from TTS Group – an education supplier – of £150 of resources to support communication and sensory needs! A fantastic prize that will be put to very good use!!
If anyone has any questions about Autism or would like more information, please contact Mrs Graves in school
Class 6 have had 2 lessons this week on how to tie our shoe laces. We have found this a little tricky but we have all been a ‘Stickability Stan’ and we won’t give up! If you want to practise more at home, you will be awarded with 10 house points.
Ava’s amazing design has been selected as a winner from lots of entries from all over Doncaster, in the Doncaster Book Award ‘Design-a-Dragon’ Competition. Ava put lots of effort into her Dragoon design at book club and at home and her design has been chosen as a winner by the Book Award Committee! Ava has now been invited to a ceramic arts day with a professional artist during half term, where she will be able to bring her design to life and make her dragon design out of clay!
Ava and her winning dragon!
Congratulations Ava – I’m sure you’re going to have an amazing time!
