Tyler was our Mindfulness Mentor this morning, leading us in a meditation to help us calm our feelings by imagining we were blowing snow on an angry volcano.
A huge thank you to all of our parents and carers who came to celebrate our learning achievements this half term and more importantly at the end of the year. Your support is very much appreciated and means so much to the children involved. We hope this gave you a little insight into the phenomenal learning journey we have all taken part in this year and I’m sure you has as much fun as the children!
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
This week was the launch of our EasyPeasy App. I am so pleased to have welcomed parents already into the EasyPeasy pod! Don’t forgot to return your slip with your name and number and you can receive a text with the latest game to get your child School ready! Today we tried the game of the week ‘sock puppets’ .
The focus of this game is writing and a simple game where children can explore using narrative and their creative thinking to tell a story. Skills children will need for creative writing when they are ready! Have fun at home and don’t forget to comment in the forum so we can see how much fun you are having!
As part of World Book Day staff have written a quote about reading. Can you spot them around the corridors? Maybe you would like to write a quote about reading and share it with your class.
A big thank you to everyone who came to join in the film fun on Friday for our EYFS Film afternoon! We had lots of fun watching and dancing to Paddington. It truly brought our literacy book alive.
The newest area in school was installed over the summer holidays in the KS1 outdoor area. ‘The Hub’ consists of the ‘Learning Hub’ and the ‘Nurture Hub.’
The Learning Hub is an area where children, from across the school, get extra support in their learning for English and Maths.
The Nurture Hub is where we support the child’s social and emotional needs, in a relaxing and calming environment.
Both Hubs have been busy since term started and we are looking forward to working with more children as the year goes on.
The Learning Hub: Mrs Graves:
The Nurture Hub: Mrs Fitzpatrick, Mrs Rafferty, Mrs Dewsnap and Mrs Dale.
We had a visit today from the Yorkshire Cricket Club and had an hour workshop with them. The children had loads of fun and had some great cricket skills! Definitely some future cricket stars at Green Top, watch out Joe Wroot! A big thank you to mr Spetch for organising this afternoon and I think some children are keen to sign up for the allstars training camp!
