Half term has been a busy week!

Well what a week we’ve had here at school!

While you’ve been resting those braincells and recovering from a manic term of camps, SATs and lots of hard work, we’ve been busy working on the school environment.

Many of you commented in your parent questionnaires that you’d like us to do more with our space, I’m pleased we agree on this.

In September I am delighted to tell you that we will have a *BRAND SPANKING NEW ART STUDIO* and *PARENT CHILL OUT ZONE* which are two things the children said they wanted us all to have access to.

Have a look at the plans below. Work started this week when the sinks were installed. The room is the one that links to the hall-the one we walk through sometimes to get into assembly. We won’t be able to use it this term as it is being transformed!

In other news this week… I have enjoyed taking care of the ducks that hatched in reception last term, though as you can see from the photo, keeping them away from my cat has been a challenge! We wanted to keep them as long as possible and I’m grateful to Mr Palmer for keeping an eye on them at the end of this week for us.

On Monday we will announce our Shaun the Sheep design competition winner and we will be talking to the children about all the exciting things happening next term: Sport’s Day, Year six Camp, Our Malago Music Extravaganza at St Mary Redcliffe church, poetry competitions, Science WOW day, the summer fair, moving up week and much more!

Looking forward to it!

If any of you would like to stay for our assembly then please do so, you’d be very welcome. Just come to reception and Miss Coles will show you a seat to wait for us to register before starting at 9:15ish.

See you on Monday,

Miss Richardson

Another fantastic term!

Another brilliant term of learning here at Greenfield. Much of our learning this term has been outside of the classroom!

We’ve had two wonderful camps. Year two visited Barton Hall in Somerset for two fun filled days of den building, learning about nocturnal animals, outdoor swimming and sausages and chips!

Year visited Beam House for four days and enjoyed abseiling, surfing and quad biking! The children learnt how to work in teams, how to stay safe and how to take risks in a safe environment. All really important life skills.

Year one have been walking, yes walking (!) all the way to Hengrove Park for swimming lessons. We are really impressed by their healthy attitude and they have enjoyed lunch in the park afterwards as a reward.

Reception and nursery children have enjoyed watching chicks and ducklings hatch, whilst learning about the author Eric Carle. We’ve seen some lovely books made by the children being bought round at gold time.

We also had a successful SATs week for our year six children, and many other learning opportunities across the academy, like learning about the solar eclipse in year three, and year five’s village topic.

Next term will bring many more fun learning opportunities- science week, creativity week, sports day, school photos, the summer fair, moving up week and year six camp to name a few! See our new look newsletter for details and dates.

Here are some pictures of our successes, and also two community events happening in half term that you might like to join in with:

Sunshine and Shaun

After a dismal start to the day I’m happy to say that the sun has come out and we have been busy busy busy learning! We’ve already had VIP lunch, year two camp assembly and stars of the week all round! I also managed to embarrass year six by asking them all to stand up as stars of the week after Miss Morgan and Mr Rees nominated their whole classes!

I’m pleased to see that many more parent surveys and pupil Shaun entries have come in too! Here are a few to show you how wonderful they’ve been. I’ve got over 200, which is just fantastic and it has been really hard to choose a top three. Governors will judge this week and winner will be announced on Friday.

Happy sunny Monday,

Miss Richardson
