They played a range of samba instruments and the children are loving learning this new skill. Parents, look out for the NMPAT leaflet your child should have brought home yesterday.

  • Friday 17 September 2021 Broken Bones! This week in Science, Year Four have been learning all about the different types of broken bones. To help the children remember the different types of breaks the children practiced recreating the breaks by drawing on their partner, with a blank label and a whiteboard pen. The children had lots of fun (as you can see from the photographs), to making their learning memorable. Mr Leach was also particularly impressed with the children's amazing abundance of knowledge about the use of X-rays and their incredible ability to work out the names and approximate location of the different parts of the body, by examining a range of X-ray images closely. We almost certainly have a handful of future medical practitioners on our hands!

  • Friday 9 July 2021 Sports Day-ish In true Greenfields style, we didn’t let COVID spoil our end of year sports. Instead of having a traditional Sports Day all together, each year group selected their favourite sport they or sports had learnt over the year and held their own inter-house competition. There was a great range of sports including football, netball, curling and dodgeball, with younger children focusing on using their skills they have developed following the ‘Horizon’ programme for early sports development. The house points accumulated were combined to find the overall winner of the coveted Greenfields House Sports Cup. The winning house this year was ……Hoy! Congratulations to all the children in Hoy House (yellow). We look forward to continuing our inter-house sports over 2021-2022.
