Next week is National Anti-Bullying week.
Our Anti-Bullying Champions have sent a letter to all of the children in school, asking them to come in odd socks on Tuesday for National Odd Socks Day. It’s an opportunity to encourage everyone to express themselves, and to celebrate their individuality and what makes us all unique!
All children have also been invited to take part in a competition to design a pair of odd socks – entries should be sent to either the Golden Eagles or the Snowy Owls classroom.
There will be no charge for either of these events.
The Anti-Bullying Champions will be running an assembly on Wednesday, during which the competition winners will be announced.
On Wednesday 16th October, children across school took part in activities linked to national Restart A Heart Day. Year 6 were particularly lucky to benefit from the expertise of players and staff from Rotherham Titans Rugby Club. As you can see, the children had plenty of hands-on opportunities to try out CPR on Rescue Annie Mannequins. It was an extremely useful, important morning.
The Snowy Owls had a fantastic, packed day at Crucial Crew in Hellaby on Wednesday 9th October. In the morning, Y6 pupils took part in a First Aid workshop, having a go at putting each other in the recovery position. They also learnt about knife crime and hate crime and had a go at spotting the signs of Child Criminal Exploitation. Additionally, the children took part in a courtroom scenario (with a rather scary trip to a prison cell).
Over the afternoon, the Snowy Owls found out about responsible public transport use and how to stay safe when crossing the road, as well as the consequences of arson and what to do in the event of a house fire.
The pupils threw themselves into each activity with enthusiasm. Their contributions to the discussions and scenarios were superb. Adults from school were very proud of the children’s excellent knowledge and their fabulous performance skills. Throughout the day, pupils were very lucky to work with a wide range of knowledgeable professionals from a variety of backgrounds. In particular, the children enjoyed the role-playing scenarios, such as the court room.
The Year 5/6 boys and Year 5/6 girls cricket teams celebrated their success at the Dinnington PE Awards Evening last Friday as the Primary School Festival winter for 2019.
Additionally, four students were recognised as Primary PE Champions for their enthusiasm and commitment to sport at Greenlands.
The Snowy Owls, Golden Eagles, Merlins and Ospreys have been putting the finishing touches to their production of The Tempest which will take place in Magna on Tuesday 9th July. Children and staff are getting very excited – it promises to be a spectacular event! There are 400 seats altogether at the venue so there should be room for everyone who would like to come.
If anyone has not yet purchased their tickets, they are available from:
The Snowy Owls have been having a great time exploring the story of ‘The Tempest’ in preparation for our performance at Magna on Tuesday 9th July.
In these pictures, you can see the ‘Whoosh’ that we held in the woodland area, where we found out about the plot and characters.
These photographs were taken during our first workshop with Emma. You can see us exploring Caliban and the island spirits.
Here we are telling the whole story through a series of freeze frames.
Our job as the Road Safety Officers is to help children stay safe on the roads around school and to cross the road safely. We want to educate children on crossing roads and make sure that they are able to choose when and where would be the safest place to cross a road. This is important because some children don’t know how to cross the roads safely so we feel it’s our job to teach them.
The School Council have been elected by our classmates. Over the year, we organise different events for our school to enjoy. We helped make the Scrap Store Play Pod for the school. We also help with lots of great activities and try to make the school as fun as possible.
It’s an important role being a School Councillor as we have to listen to the different ideas children have and try and get these things to happen.
We are the Science Ambassadors and we carry out lots of science experiments. Every Monday, we hold a club for KS1 to give them an opportunity to test out lots of fun experiments. Also we organize different events for the whole school; for example, we once organized a poster event to see how much they know about science.
We want to try and show children how exciting science is and how much fun you can have doing different experiments. Science is for everyone to enjoy!
We are the Sports Leaders: our main role in school is to promote fitness and healthy lifestyles. We offer the opportunity for all children to take part in lots of different activities throughout the week. Also, we have held different events that the whole school has taken part in such as: Bike It, Invictus Games, Circutathon and a Duathlon. We have many more to come!
