Year 6 - Global Day (Added 15/03/2019)
Yesterday, our Y6 children attended 'Global Day' at Brunt's as a key part of their general primary-secondary transition and we had a fantastic day!
All of the activities focused upon the works of William Shakespeare and we began by learning all about some of the key battles within 'The Hundred Years' War' as part of a history lesson involving organising our own time-lines and storyboards. We were able to make some great inferences based on images and a range of other sources and did a very good job of explaining our answers by referring back to evidence from the text.
Next, we had a fantastic French lesson where we focused upon Romeo and Juliet and developed our understanding of how to use adjectives to describe the main characters. We even pushed ourselves even further and began to use colons and commas for lists as a way of practising our SPAG!
After lunchtime, we spent some time in the ICT suite which we really enjoyed! In this session, we developed our understanding of creative media and used software to create, develop and edit our own short videos linked to our earlier history work.
Overall, a fantastic day and we really enjoyed it!

Tree Planting (Added 03/12/18)
Four classes of pupils planted 120 trees native to Nottinghamshire thanks to a national tree planting project in the run up to National Tree Week. The Greenwood Community Forest Initiative helped with the planting event which was a huge success.
On the day, the children also planted a woodland area with Oak, Silver Birch, Field Maple and Rowan thanks to a free pack from the Woodland Trust’s Trees for Schools programme. This will not only encourage wildlife to the area, but also provide a new outdoor learning space in years to come.
Football - District Finals! (Added 16/10/18)
Our year 5 & 6 football team competed at the district finals in a highly competitive competition. There was 9 teams in total with only one point separating the top 3 teams. Our boys finished 3rd and were awarded a bronze medal! Congratulations to everyone that took part.
