Year 5's trip to St James Park for StemFest

Year 5 visited St James' Park to take part in The North East STEM Hub event around the theme of ‘Net Zero’ in partnership with Newcastle United Foundation. The fun, interactive and hands on event showcased businesses from across the region, their response to Climate Change and their plans to reach Net Zero by 2030. Over 3000
young people from the regions schools were there and our children had a fantastic time!


The Big Toddle

Our pre-school children took part in The Bog Toddle this week and they didn't let a bit of rain stop them.

At Greenfields we are creative ...

Across school this week our children have been getting creative in lots of different ways. From cooking, designing and drawing to painting, exploring and building they've done it all.
