Science Week

Our children had great fun in their science lessons this week celebrating British Science Week. British Science Week is a ten-day celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths. At Greenfields the children focused on inventors and inventions and they all had a special visit from Sterling Organics who lead a chemistry workshop with them.

North Tyneside Dance Festival

On Tuesday night, some of our KS2 children went to Whitley Bay Playhouse to perform a dance routine, to a packed audience, as part of North Tyneside Dance Festival. They were amazing and we couldn't be prouder of them.
Year 1

Year 1 Sponsored Cycle

Well done to our year 1 children who raised an amazing £312 from their sponsored cycle. Thank you so much to everyone who supported them. The money raised is going towards their summer trip.

Muddy Bairns

What fun our Muddy Bairns have had over the past few weeks. From cooking to painting, to snow and mud; there really is never a dull moment.

Year 3 Forest School

On Thursday, year 3 had their final Forest School session. They cooked marshmallows and sausages around the fire as well as exploring and making dens. What a fantastic way to spend a Thursday afternoon!

At Greenfields, we encourage our children to be curious in every way possible.

There is a wonder and magic to childhood. We don't realise it at the time, of course . . . yet the adults in our lives do. They encourage us to see things in the stars, to find joy in colors and laughter as we play. But what happens when that special someone who encourages such wonder and magic is no longer around? We can hide, we can place our heart in a bottle and grow up . . . or we can find another special someone who understands the magic. And we can encourage them to see things in the stars, find joy among colors and laughter as they play. Oliver Jeffers delivers a remarkable book, that will speak to the hearts of children and parents alike.


Please be reminded that the school day starts at 8.40am for all of our children. The children will be taken into school at this time so children must be on the yard before this. Doors will be shut once the children have entered the building. If your child is not in school for this time and they will be marked as late.

Please only send your child into school with a water bottle filled with water. Although, I understand that Prime is extremely popular with many of the children, it is not allowed in school along with fizzy drinks and energy drinks.
