Supporting the children of Wideopen to be amazed, be original, be brave and be bold.

at Greenfields

If you want to know about all things Art, then Mr Coverdale is your man! He is our Art subject leader and he absolutely loves Art. You should ask to see his sketch book.

The Art curriculum at Greenfields is carefully planned so that children learn skills and knowledge which are progressive, giving the children a rich, broad and deep appreciation of art.

The aim of our Art curriculum is to ensure that all pupils:
  • Produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences
  • Become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques
  • Evaluate and analyse artistic works using the language of art, craft and design
  • Know about local and relevant artists, craft makers and designers, and understand the development of their art forms
  • Create individual and original work in response to what they have learned
At Greenfields, we ensure that children are at the heart of our teaching and learning in Art. We aim to provide varied opportunities for children to develop and explore their individuality and originality through a range of mediums. Art, craft and design is a subject that engages with children’s imagination and which values originality and our aim is to inspire artists of the future.

Take a look at some of the fantastic artwork which has been created so far this term. I think we definitely have some artists of the future!

Coming out of lock down together...

As you will know, the government announced this week that they will be allowing Step three of the road map out of lock down to take place.

In school, we will for the moment, continue to adhere to our infection control systems that have helped to keep all of our community safe and well.

We will however, be relaxing the rules on the wearing of a face covering on our site.

From Monday 17th May:

This means that when you are outside of our building in any of the outside spaces, you do not need to wear a face covering.

If you need to come into school for any reason, we will ask you to wear a face covering. Staff will continue to wear face coverings.

Reading recommendation

"Malala's Magic Pencil" by Malala Yousafzai.

Year 2 learning all about Malala Yousafzai. As a child in Pakistan, Malala made a wish for a magic pencil that she could use to redraw reality. She would use it to give gifts to her family, to erase the smell from the rubbish dump near her house, to sleep an extra hour in the morning. As she grew older, Malala wished for bigger and bigger things. She saw a world that needed fixing. And even if she never found a magic pencil, Malala realized that she could still work hard every day to make her wishes come true.


Parking on Taylor Avenue

We are respectfully asking parents and carers to park with consideration in our local streets. Please do be careful not to block the driveways of local residents or to park on the footpaths.

Thank you for your support.
After the very challenging 12 months we all have faced, I know some families may be looking ahead and thinking about holidays for the future- please see the school calendar with term dates for the academic year 2021/22. Please note the training days when school will be closed to children. We are respectfully requesting families not to book holidays during term time- they will not be authorised. I am sure that you would agree with me; it is really very important that your children are in school for the whole of the year.


Drop off and collection times - please make sure that you are keeping to your bubble stagger time for collection and drop offs.

Times are as follows:
Year 6, 5, 4 and Reception 8:45am - 3:05pm

Year 3, 2, 1
8:55am - 3:15pm

The 50p breakfast club begins at 8:15am- we will take children up until 8:30am, when the doors will be closed.

Contacting school - Please don't forget, there are lots of ways you can get in contact with school. Email is often the best and quickest way to resolve your query. We're here to help!

Good luck!

This week we say goodbye to Mrs Williams who is retiring.

Mrs Williams has worked her outdoor magic with countless children over the years and has touched the lives of so many families from Greenfields. She will be sorely missed!

We know that you won't let yourself get bored Mrs Williams, as we know you can always find an outdoor adventure!

Good bye and good luck!

New School uniform

You will have received a letter today explaining where and when you can begin to buy our new school uniform. For those of you who have walked passed the entrance of school, you will have seen a sample of the new jumper and t-shirt. We think it looks really very smart- we hope you agree!

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.
