Are you Ready for the World?

Children at Greenfields understand that learning is not defined by the content of their knowledge but combining how they learn with the skill of being able to use what they know; a sense of responsibility and a confidence in their own ability to succeed; essential qualities that will equip them for lifelong learning.

Our Ready for the World Awards are to recognise children who are showing that they are developing positive learning behaviours. Our Ready for the World Awards are progressive statements across the school that focus on four key learning behaviours linked to our school values; amazed, brave, original and bold.

Look how many children have been ready for the world this week!

Keep your eyes peeled for updates!

Year 2 Football Sessions

This afternoon, Andy Cartwright held a fantastic session for our Year 2 children. We are looking forward to working with Andy in the next couple of weeks for children in KS2.


Red Nose day 2021

We wanted to make sure that everyone could celebrate World Book Day together so we decided to postpone the national event from last week to today.

We have been using the day to write a whole school story based upon the book "Maybe" by Kobi Yamada.

Down Syndrome Awareness Day

This Monday, (Monday 22nd March) we will be celebrating World Down
Syndrome Day. The theme of this very special day is "you decide" It is important that as a school we recognise that we are all unique individuals all with similarities and differences. To mark this day we are asking our children to wear mismatched socks. The reason we wear mismatched socks is because chromosomes look like socks, and people who have Down’s syndrome have an extra copy of chromosome 21.

Exciting News!

You will of course all remember that in September, with the help of the children, we changed our school logo and values statements.

I know that many parents have already started to think about next school year. Over the course of the next few weeks we will be bringing you some information about our new uniform for September. We hope that the changes we are bringing will make uniform much more affordable and readily available to all of our families.

In the meantime, if your child has out grown their green sweatshirt, please do not replace it; please do contact us as we have some that you can use. Alternatively, if you would like to buy a sweatshirt, we are asking parents to replace with a plain NAVY sweatshirt or cardigan.

Currently, Asda is stocking blue sweatshirts- 2 sweatshirts for £5.

Don't forget... Friday 26th March ~ Training Day for staff

Next Friday -Friday March 26th is a staff training day. School will be closed to all children on this day.


progress meetings
Parents’ Progress Meetings will take place next week ~ beginning 22nd March. Please be aware that the phonecall from your child's teacher will come from an 'unknown' number.

Reading recommendation

"Marmaduke the very different dragon" by Rachel Valentine & Ed Eaves
Marmaduke's not like all the other dragons - his ears are too big and he never even tries to fly. He just doesn't fit in, however much he wants to, and so he feels terribly lonely.

And Princess Meg? Well, she wears trainers and breaks into dance at the most inappropriate of times, which means that she sticks out like a sore thumb. She doesn't really have any friends, but then she's far too busy having fun to notice . . . Until one day when Marmaduke and Meg's lives collide in the most exciting, brilliant and surprising way and they both realise just how much they need each other.

And, who knows, maybe a princess and a dragon will make the most perfect best friends.
