What a lovely day!

First up – some photos of the brilliant bazaar – thank you so much to all the FROGSs who supported us with wrapping and selling presents, and all parents and carers who sent their children in with money today. We will let you know the total raised so far but it is looking BIG which is great news for all of the children.

Then, we had our brilliant 100% attendance reward for children who have been in every single day this term. We made green white chocolate Oreo Christmas trees, they were yummy! More to come tomorrow…

Finally, our fabulous year 6 made chocolate chilli and produced some brilliant writing, games, and a raffle to showcase their Mayan learning with parents. Thank you to all those you who came in, and if you didn’t make it don’t worry – the work will be on display in the entrance hall for you to see – we are very proud of it.

We hope to see you all at the Carol Concert tomorrow at 2pm in the playground. We will be drawing the raffle and opening our new reading den – don’t miss out!

Greenfield in the Post

Very proud to see our name in the post this week celebrating our fantastic progress results. These results are a reflection of the journey your children make when they start with us to the end of year six, and we are really proud of how well they do and how hard they work.

All credit to them, to you and to our fantastic staff.

This is great news for Greenfield-it means our children can hold their heads high at secondary school and feel confident that they have learned just as much as their new friends. It also means we are getting a good reputation -which makes our school an attractive place to work so we can recruit the very best teachers and staff to work here.

So all in all, fabulous news!

Look forward to celebrating this week and seeing you all at the productions and Carol concert on Friday (2pm in the playground)

Let’s make this last week a great one,

Miss Richardson

Being mindful

The parents who came to our jigsaw staff meeting will know that we are now regularly teaching lessons which allow the children time to reflect and think about their actions, behaviours and happiness. We teach them accept their situations and feel calm at these times. We call this ‘mindfulness’.

Here are year six enjoying being ‘mindful’ this afternoon.

Christmas Productions

Dear parents,

I cannot apologise enough for the confusion over tickets and any unsympathetic responses you have had to your pleas for additional tickets.

This is what we have done:

-Spoken to fire safety experts today and increased the number of tickets per performance from 70 to 100. 80 seated and 20 standing.

-Raised the number of tickets to ONE PER CHILD (NOT ONE PER FAMILY)
so if you have two children in key stage two, you can have two tickets. We will issue the last of these tonight after school.

On Monday morning from 8:00 you will be able to buy spare tickets in a first come first served basis.

We are confidential that this will ensure that separated families can have both parents attend, and limit any upset for children.

Thank you for bearing with us and apologies again for any miscommunication.

On a positive note the rehearsals have been fantastic and the children are really enjoying performing!

See you at the shows, if not before,

Miss Richardson

See you at the shows!

Spoken to the front office who will be issuing any
