red nose day
Thank you for all of your donations for Red Nose Day. The children had a great time today completing challenges and quizzes to raise money for such great causes. I think they all particularly enjoyed the teacher challenges; we were all certainly put through our paces.

Computing at Greenfields

This week, the children have been enjoying using our new Computing Suite and testing out our new iPads and robots.

Technology Tom

Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 had a treat this week when Technology Tom came into school to work with them. They made their very own vehicles and focused on how to connect wheels and axles. We certainly have some budding engineers in our school.

A Warm Welcome
