We have had a great first week back at school!

We have been to visit our local library to meet a librarian.

We learnt all about the library and how librarians help us. The librarian sent us some membership forms prior to visiting, so we took our completed forms with us. The librarian then made us members and allowed us to take a book home.

We had a great time using the self-service counter.

Then today, we have had a visit from two lovely paramedics, who kindly gave up their time to visit us.

They even brought us an ambulance, and let us look inside.

We loved it!

We had a great time, and we are planning to write some thank you cards in our Literacy lesson tomorrow.

 

Robins and Chaffinches step back in time to visit Warwick Castle

What a super way to bring our learning to life! Robins and Chaffinches had an amazing day visiting Warwick Castle. We were met by a guide who took us to different parts of the castle and shared lots of information with us. The guides were amazed by how much knowledge the children had, they also commented on their super behaviour too. Whilst we were there we also watched a magnificent birds of prey display, climbed the original Motte to admire the views of the Warwickshire countryside and listened to an interesting talk by a skilful bowman. As always however, a popular part of the day was lunchtime!
The children were super ambassadors for our school throughout the whole day. Well done Robins and Chaffinches!

The Great Greenlands Conker Championships 2018!

The inaugural Great Greenlands Conker Championships were a huge success! We had some strict rules (soaking in vinegar or baking them was allowed, but varnishing was a definite no!) and the competition was fierce. In the end, one champion emerged from each class. Congratulations to the winners!

Robins discover the colours of Autumn

What beautiful autumn weather! Robins have recently been out and about in the local area exploring and enjoying this season. We have been learning about the signs of Autumn and what happens at this time of the year.

We collected many objects of different colour and texture, we even saw wildlife too. The days may be shorter but we are certainly making the most of them!

Hope you enjoy looking at the photos.

A few weeks ago we had two lovely police officers come to visit us at our school. They came to teach us about road safety, which they call ‘Street Feet’. They were so impressed with the knowledge we already had, but we also learnt so much more. They chose some of us to pretend to be different vehicles on the road, whilst others were chosen to be pedestrians to act out scenarios.

Today, they kindly brought a police van to show us and they let us go inside it. At the end they let us put the sirens and lights on too. They were both really friendly and very kind officers. We were very grateful that they were able to give up some of their time to visit us; we had a great time!

Sing up for Autumn time

Here we are singing two of our favourite autumn songs. We thought it might help you with the tune when you begin to sing along. You will find the lyrics in your child’s home learning books.

Have fun!

The Conkers Song

Meet the Kings and Queens of Greenlands Primary!

We had a lovely walk to Greenlands park today. We all walked really sensibly with our adults, and we were also able to use our road safety knowledge to help us get there safely.

We all worked together as a team to collect autumn leaves, and then we set about making our crowns.

What do you think?

We were all very impressed with our crowns!

 

We Escaped the Room (Well … some of us did!)

The Golden Eagles and Snowy Owls had a fantastic time in Sheffield last week. Each child had the opportunity to experience an exciting Escape Room at Escape Sheffield. The adults were so impressed with the children’s team work, problem solving and resilience. Seven of the twelve groups managed to escape the room within an hour – have a look at our photos. Some children visited the ‘Witchcraft and Wizardry’ room and others had a go at the ‘221b Baker Street’ room. We picked up plenty of ideas for our own escape room, which brave parents, family and friends will have the opportunity to try towards the end of term. Watch this space …

Crucial Crew

The Snowy Owls had a fantastic, packed day at Crucial Crew in Hellaby on Thursday 4th October. In the morning, Y6 pupils found out about responsible public transport use, how to stay safe when crossing the road, the consequences of arson and what to do in the event of a house fire. Over the afternoon, First Aid was covered in an informative and fun workshop. Additionally, the children took part in a courtroom scenario (with a rather scary trip to a prison cell).

 

The pupils threw themselves into each activity with enthusiasm. Their contributions to the discussions and scenarios were superb. Adults from school were all 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; as you can see, we all thought the bus driver was very cool!

Wrens Spread the Word About Healthy Eating!

We are learning about people who care for us, but we want everyone to also look after themselves too.

We decided it would be a great idea to spread the word about eating healthy foods by singing our new favourite song.

Please sing along!

We then had to eat all of the fruit up.

The next day we tried the vegetables too.
