The Year 5 life skills groups with Mrs Walton used weight and measure to bake cookies in preparation for the following days maths lesson about fractions.
They were rewarded for their hard work by eating the cookies after they divided them into the correct fractions.
Over the last few weeks, children and staff at Green Top have demonstrated how Christmas is not only a time for receiving but also for giving, as they have donated food and toiletries to the ‘Pay It Forward Advent’ in aid of the Thorne Community Foodbank.
Children in Year 6 then gave their time to support the volunteers at the Food bank in giving out bags. Paul Brian even sang a song to get everyone in a Christmas mood.
Support of the Food bank will continue into the new year, with groups of Year 6 children going down every week to help.
Year 5 and 6 have worked incredibly hard this term learning all about the rainforests. To celebrate their learning they have produced a fantastic re-usable calendar which will be on sale for all to buy! Our calendars will be sold at our celebration event on 18th December 2018 at 5pm. Calendars will be £7.50 to buy – a real bargain!
We hope to see you there!
A big well done from me to the choir and all the effort they put in rehearsing for the Christmas light switch on. A lovely little video here (thank you Miss Knowles) and thank you to all of the support from parents, friends and family. Feeling very festive now!
Year 5 are beginning to see the results of their green fingers and hard work as the garlic and carrots they planted 3 weeks ago are beginning to sprout.
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.
Sensory Circuit has gone all ZEN! Every morning, after completing their early morning sensory activities, some children have been learning how to meditate. It is a great way to start the day.
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
