It was a great joy to have the first Celebration Assembly of this academic year. Today we celebrated our amazing Key Stage 2 stars of the week, handwriters of the week and sports stars of the week. It is so good to see our new Year 3 children off to a flying start, and to welcome our brand new Reception children, who loved taking part in their first assembly.
At the end of the assembly, we celebrated our traditional House Cup with our new House Chiefs: Mr Reid (Hoy), Miss Mitchell (Ennis), Mr Hughes (Adlington) and Mrs Wensley (Farah). Next week, the Cup will be awarded to our new House Captains, who are being announced on Monday morning, along with our new Junior Leadership Team and Head Boy and Head Girl.
More children than ever are enjoying a freshly cooked, healthy and delicious school dinner at Greenfields Primary School and Nursery. Please remember to book them on the app so your child has their favourite foods. We know lots of you also like to send children with a packed lunch, so below you'll find some information about how to plan for healthy packed lunches on a budget.
Thank you for your continued support - have a lovely weekend
Mixing with Colours
This week the children in Reception have continued to settle in well and have enjoyed a focused activity with an adult exploring colour mixing. They have also been learning numbers songs in maths and talking about what they would like to be when they grow up. A great second week in Reception.
Swimming for Powerful Panthers
Powerful Panthers had an AWESOME time swimming on Thursday afternoon! They smashed their learning and the class behaviour was impeccable! Miss Mitchell loved watching them in the pool and seeing how everyone's confidence soared! The Panthers can't wait to join the new groups and get practising new skills next week!
This week Year One welcomed ex-pupil Giacomo from a surveying company called Virtuscan into school. He showed us how aerial photographs/maps are made using drones. They were very excited to see how high the drone could go and can't wait to see the aerial photos and video footage that was taken of the school as part of the Geography topic.

Google Classroom is where you will find Flipping Greenfields and the rest of Greenfields' amazing virtual classrooms full of chat and lots of hard work! If you have not used Google Classroom before, or you are new to Greenfields, please follow this link that explains how to log on to a PC, Android or Apple device. You will need your child’s email address and password, and the class codes below:
Home School Agreement
As we become more used to our online way of working, we thought it was important to add to our home/school agreement (that you signed when your child started at Greenfields) to include online learning. Please follow the link below to complete this short addition relating to online learning with Greenfields Primary School and Nursery.
Class Code and Google Link
These have been updated for the classes in 2023-24, so click on the link for the class you will be in in September.
Teachers always look forward to posting their ‘Flippin' Greenfields’ videos every Friday next term in time for the weekend. Each one is all about next week’s learning, so will get your child prepared for a flying start on Monday. Research shows that children who feel prepared for the coming week are less anxious about school, happier to get up and go on a Monday morning and achieve better than those who are not.
