National Children’s Mental Health Awareness Week


Reception rainbow
This week was National Children’s Mental Health Awareness Week. The theme of the week this year is “Expressing yourself”; this is about encouraging the children to find ways to share feelings, thoughts, or ideas, through creativity.

It’s important that we stress with the children that being able to express yourself is not about being the best at something or putting on a performance for others. It is about finding a way to show who you are, and how you see the world, that can help you feel good about yourself.

It was fabulous to see the children dressed up in their most colourful clothing as a true expression of their personalities. Well done everyone!

Friendship Fence

Thank you to everyone who has written a message for their friends or our community to hang on our friendship fence.

We decided to hold off hanging your fabulous messages as the weather has been so awful this week and we didn't want the to spoil in the rain. If the weather has improved next week we will begin to hang them- we will let you know when this is so that you can walk along the Waggonway and read these fabulous messages.

Fabulous pebble faces

Don't these pebble faces look fantastic. Well done to all those children who collected a pebble and the resources to make a face- I think they look fantastic! I can't wait to see them in a line down the drive. We'll let you know when we put them out, as we don't want them to spoil in the bad weather.

I hope you recognise some of your friends!

...be original...

This term the school value we will be focusing on is...

...be original..

~ never stop asking questions...seek out the answers ~

Be original is shown by the hands on our logo; they represent the importance of fostering our children to be questioning and evaluative of all they see and hear. This term you will see that children are encouraged to think originally about what they have learnt, develop an insatiable hunger for knowledge and question everything.

Reading recommendation

"Julian is a Mermaid" by Jessica Love.
This story is all about a little boy who wants to express himself. Thanks to his lovely Nana he finds the way to do this in quite the most fantastic style!

Reminders for families


We have set up year group email addresses if you need to speak directly with your child's teacher.

Please can parents and carers avoid using teacher's personal school email addresses. These emails are accessible to staff usually on their personal devices which means that they pick them up over the weekend and times when they are not at work. I'm sure you all support me in wanting our staff to have sufficient space away from work to recharge their batteries so that they are at their best at the start of each day and each week.

Thank you in advance for your support with this.

REMINDER Communication

Ways to contact us at school:

We have set up new email addresses for individual year groups so that if you have a query for your child's teacher you can email the staff in that year group directly.

If your child or a member of their household develops symptoms of COVID19 or you have received your test result, please use the email:

Office email for copies of letters or emails that you may have missed or general information about your child’s class:

parentsandcarers@ greenfieldsprimary.org.uk
This email is monitored by a member of the Senior Management Team. Please use this if you have a question or query which is specific to your child. We can then direct your query to the right person within school.

I’m always keen to hear any suggestions or comments about school, so that we can work in the best interests for all the children at Greenfields.

Please do not contact us via the gateway app as this is not monitored and we might not get to your query as quickly as you would like.

Watch this space!!

Watch out for some special news telling you about a special treat for Friday of next week... we can't wait to tell you what it is!
