Our School Council

Some of our school counsellors went to North Tyneside Learning Trust this week to take part in NTLP Climate Strategy. They presented their strategy for tackling climate change to a panel of judges and were amazing - we are very proud of them!

Year 4 trip

Year 4 went to the Hatton Gallery this week where they took part in an abstract art workshop and explored the art gallery, including a modern art expedition.

Muddy Monsters

Our Muddy Bairns, had a brilliant time with Muddy Monsters this half term. They spent the day in our Forest School on an adventure with a Muddy Monster character exploring, investigating and discovering.

What A Half Term ...

From trips to the rising sun, Newcastle Street Scientists, Forest School, art lessons, drumming, planting seeds and hunting for signs of Autumn; the children really have had the best start ti this academic year.

Star Achievers

Our Star Achievers went to the library on Thursday with Miss Evans to pick a book as part of their reward. The children loved going to the library and have all picked a book that has been ordered and will be at school for their return after half term. Well done to our Star Achievers; we are very proud of you all.

We always teach our children that they can do whatever they set their minds to because they are amazingly talented. Never let anything get in your way!

Shakleton's book
Shackleton's Journey is a unique visual re-telling of Ernest Shackleton's landmark expedition crossing the Antarctic from one pole to the other. William Grill's impeccably researched and informative illustrations celebrate the 100th anniversary since the historic exploration by Shackleton and his crew on Endurance. Children will love exploring Grill's exploded diagrams and the fascinating details of this landmark voyage.

All Star Prize

At the end of Autumn 1, Autumn 2, Spring term and Summer term we have our 'All Star Prize', which recognises those children who always follow the school rules, always try their best and are always kind to others. As well as someone winning the 'All Star Prize', this half term we have been lucky enough to source tickets for a women's NUFC match on Sunday 27th November at St James Park where they will play Bradford City. Those children who were picked out of the hat will receive one adult and two child tickets. The tickets will be given to those children after half term.
thank you for your support
Thank you to all of our families and children for being so amazing. Without your support, we couldn't do all of the lovely things that we do. Thank you to your fantastic children who make Greenfields the wonderful and special place it is.
