brave school
The children have returned to school looking refreshed and ready to learn. This half term we are making our focus our school value which is teaching the children to ...be brave...

...be brave ~ confront your fears and take a chance… mistakes are the best lessons ~

This half term we'll be looking at developing the skills needed to take a chance, to know that the best lessons often begin with a mistake.

Why not join us by sharing our #bebrave on social media.

Greenfields Community

We are inviting parents and carers and our local community to join us in commerating Remembrance Day this year as a community together. All of the children will be writing a short message of hope and bravery on a poppy which we will be tieing to the trees that line our driveway.

Over the course of next week, leading up to Wednesday, please do take this opportunity to write a poppy for us to hang on our trees of hope and bravery. A table will be out daily with poppies for you to do this.

If you are not coming to school to drop your children off, you can email your message to:
With "poppy message" in the email title.

On Wednesday 11th we will be holding a ceremony for the children in school which we will video and make available to you.

"Together we can change young lives"

Children in Need day is next Friday 13th November. The theme this year is "together we can change young lives".
We are asking you to join together with us to dress in your wackiest Children in Need outfits, onesies or accessories for a donation of 50p.

Who will be our Greenfields All Stars Winner this half term?

At the end of this half term we will be drawing another All Stars raffle. Mrs Allan is already thinking about what she is going to put into the prize box. To have a chance of winning this fabulous ...be brave... prize, all the children need to do is keep their Greenfields stars. Good luck!

This week our family challenge is to share with each other those situations where you might have been frightened to do something but you were brave and succeeded!
We look forward to hearing all about them! Why not share your stories with us on our social media pages.
