The Winter Wonderland Reading Event

As our first ever reading event at Greenfield Primary School, we are thrilled with the turn out and success of our Winter Wonderland Reading Event. Children from all classes attended the event with their parents, grandparents, other family members and friends to share books and grab a hot chocolate. 

We were able to raise £60 from this event in just 60 minutes which will go towards even more new books for our library space in 2020. Our aim is to continue to refresh our library with up to date, relevant and exciting books for our children, of all ages, to get excited about. We gathered feedback from those who attended the event, both adults and children, and will be using this feedback to inform our future events to ensure that they are successful and beneficial for our children and parents. 

 

Please see below for some pictures from the event. Our next reading event will be coming up in February so watch this space...

National Poetry Day

3rd October 2019

Each class worked on poetry and poetic style throughout the week and we came together on National Poetry day (Thursday 3rd October) to celebrate what we had been working on through performances.

 

Here is an example of the performances from the day:

 

Year 6's Poetry Performances

Still image for this video
Year 6 performed the dinosaur rap as a class and worked on some descriptive, free-verse poetry about winter. Some children used the ideas that we had discussed but developed their own ideas into the theme by looking at changes over time relating to climate change and pollution as well as the transition from autumn into winter.

Road Safety Week 2019 

Greenfield Primary school took part in road safety week. Pupils had an assembly where they discussed the importance of being safe on the roads, whether that is walking, cycling or scooting. 

In KS1/KS2 pupils did work on how to be safe on the roads. Some Classes also had the opportunity to use the new zebra crossing safely, they made sure they STOPPED, LOOKED, LISTENED and THOUGHT before crossing the road. 

 

There was also a colouring competition for EYFS and KS1 and a road awareness poster in KS2. Take a look at the winners!

OLYMPIC TORCH VISITS GREENFIELD PRIMARY SCHOOL

 

Muriel Brown, one of the Olympic Torchbearers who carried the flame
between Barnsley and Kexbrough, visited pupils at Greenfield Primary
School on 26th June 2012.


Muriel, age 81, is a great-grandmother from Uppermill. She is the world
champion over 50s 10K runner and has completed 3 marathons. Muriel
talked to all the pupils in an assembly about how she became nominated
and the processes involved. She informed children that the torch weighed
1 Kilo and there are 8,000 circles in the torch representing the 8,000
torchbearers who carry the torch over a total distance of 8,000
miles. Pupils were able to ask Muriel lots of questions and each pupil had
an opportunity to hold the Olympic Torch.
