Happy Father’s Day!

Your child has learnt this little song to say Happy Father’s Day.

 

Hope you wear your tie with pride. Happy Father’s Day!

 

 

Fruit Tasting in Progress……

Well we had read the story, wrote about it, and drew pictures of the animals from it. It was now time for the best bit! It was time to sample the fruits from the book ‘Handa’s Surprise’. The children were really excited to try some of the fruits, but obviously not others.

There were some interesting faces, as children stepped out of their comfort zone, and tried some fruits which were new to them.

The children then recorded which fruits they liked and disliked. We found that three children liked six of the seven fruits available.

It’s Raining, It’s Pouring………

Well, the weather wasn’t great yesterday, so we used our time wisely!

We went and ticked off another one of our ’50 things to do before we leave Greenlands’.

Here we are playing in the rain.

WOW! – Wrens fly off to Africa

The children arrived today in their holiday clothes for our flight to Africa.

They then set about writing luggage labels for their backpacks, and then filled in the necessary details on their passports, which would allow them to travel to Africa.

They then passed through security, and had their passport checked and stamped.

They then boarded the plane and took a seat.

The children then listened and followed the instructions given by the pilot.

The in-flight entertainment was then switched on, which was an African safari film, and they were served refreshments.

Let’s see what we get up to whilst we are on our holiday in Africa!

 

 

News Flash!! – Wrens get celebrity status

Wrens have worked their socks off this term creating their film ‘Zog’, for our final event.

We wanted parents/carers to come and view our film, so we wrote them an invitation. They all received popcorn on arrival, which went down really well.

The film was really well received, and got raving reviews by our audience. Here it is for you to enjoy too!

I think it’s official now!

Wrens now know the story ‘Zog’, by Julia Donaldson inside out.

We also decided to sing ‘ A Million Dreams’, as this is one of our favourite songs at the minute, but also as it’s about dreams.

We also got some great donations for our raffle as well. Here are a couple of them.

We would like to say a big thank you to everyone for all their support, and generosity.

Happy Mother’s Day!

We have been busy making cards for our lovely mums, and learning to sing this song for them. They do an amazing job, and we just wanted to say… Happy Mother’s Day to them!

Shrove Tuesday – means it’s time to eat…. PANCAKES!

Wrens helped make, and obviously eat pancakes at snack time.

They had a choice of various toppings, which made them go down so well.

It also gave them an opportunity to work on those knife and fork skills too.

The children all talked about how they were going to be celebrating ‘Shrove Tuesday’ with their families too. We then went and made a special delivery, which was greatly received.

A big thumbs up for ‘Shrove Tuesday’.

 

 

Happy World Book Day 2019 – Reading is Power!

Wrens have had a great time celebrating ‘World Book Day’ today with the rest of the school.

Look at the characters we chose to dress up as…..

In the afternoon the older children in school read stories to us, and played games linked to that book. We also went to different classes to listen to staff reading stories. What a great day!

 

 

Happy Chinese New Year Everyone!

Wrens have been busy making Chinese crafts, and participating in celebrations to ring in the year of the pig.

We came to school dressed in something red, as this in Chinese culture means good luck. The golden colour symbolises wealth and also happiness.

We found out that people who celebrate Chinese New Year, decorate their homes, with red and gold decorations, so here we are making Chinese lanterns and candle holders. We also made money packets, but the significance of red envelopes is the red paper, not the money inside. Wrapping lucky money in red envelopes is expected to bestow more happiness and blessings on the receivers. Hence, it is impolite to open a red envelope in front of the person who gives it to you.

We have also been learning how to write in Chinese too.

After all this work, we decided it was time to try some Chinese food. We sat in our restaurant, listening to lovely Chinese music, and some of us had a go at using chopsticks!

We learnt all about the Chinese Zodiac, and how the twelve animals were chosen. We then had our very own race, but we ran. We thought it was a safer option!

We all found out which Chinese Zodiac sign we were too!

We finished our celebrations off with a dragon dance. (Not Zog, we gave him a day off!!)

Happy Chinese New Year everyone, love Wrens x

 

News Flash! Greenlands Staff & Parents Netball Team are in Action!

Five months ago some parents and staff started to attend our ‘Back to Netball’ sessions after school on a Thursday. This has progressed so much; that they are now playing competitively in the Bassetlaw netball league on a Monday night. After quite a lot of deliberation, and laughter, it was decided that they would be called ‘Elle Plates’. Their first game was Monday the 7th January, against Panthers, which was very challenging, but everyone came off the court brimming with pride. They all put 100% effort and are looking forward to their future games.

If anyone would like to get ‘Back to Netball’, we are still running training sessions every Thursday at 3.30pm on the junior yard. Please come along if you would like to meet new friends, and fancy a learning a new sport.

For further information, please speak to Mrs Baird or Mrs Rowlands

Here are the ‘Elle Plates’. You could be one too!
