Impact of Snow on Green Top

The following arrangements are put into operation at Green Top, during days when we experience disruption caused by severe snow or extreme weather.

  • A text will be sent to parents by 7.30am if the school is going to close
  • The closure will be also be posted on the school website.
  • If conditions deteriorate during a school day a decision may be made to close the school early. A text will always be sent parents to inform them of any changes and arrangements for early collection to be confirmed. 
  • If you do not hear from the school then assume it is a normal day and we are OPEN
  • If we are open but pathways and drives are of concern, then we will send a text requesting support from parents to help Alan to clear these areas.

Thank you in advance for your support with this.

Factory shop 50 years competition

Class 10 entered the factory shop 50 years competition last week and I am so pleased to say they won the local competition and are through to the next stage (the national competition). They had to create a piece of artwork which represents our community. They included the pit gates, Thorne church, peel hill and the mayors chain. Of course, we added children in green top uniform too! Then the children included self portraits with the quote “we are all different, we are all unique but together  we make a community”.

The children have been invited to a reveal of the art work at the Factory shop where their artwork will now be displayed for all to see. This will take place on Saturday 18th May at 2:00pm. 

We are keeping our fingers crossed we win the next round and the prize of £1000 for our school. Well done Class 10, Mrs Clay and I are so proud of you all as always!

Great Reading!

Class 13 completed their reading activity around the room this week and they looked at extracts from the book Mina by David Almond. Mina is a character from Skellig so it was really fun to find out more about her!

The children coached and supported each other through the questions and worked really hard to retrieve information from the text.
