Children in Need 2021

Every year we look forward to raising money for Children in Need... this year has been no different!

All the money raised by Children in Need goes towards changing the lives of children and young people across the UK. This year our children have been thinking carefully about the environment and so we made some of our very own spotty t-shirt out of recycled clothing. We think we look rather fabulous! Don't you?

Thank you to all of our families who were able to donate a silver coin to this very special cause.

GCPS goes to the Panto!

It's finally here! On Tuesday 23rd November, the whole school will be going to the panto....we can't wait!
Here are a few key things to remember:
- Children should wear their school uniform so that they are easily identifiable. If your child would like to
accessorise their school uniform with tinsel in their shoes, hair or even a festive hair band please
feel free.
- Your child does not need to bring any money.
- The GFPTA have kindly provided sweets, a drink and crisps for all children, so there is no need for your child to
bring any snacks. They can bring a waster bottle if they would like.
- The panto finishes at 5pm and whilst we will be as quick as we can, we do not expect to be back at school until between 6pm and 6.15pm.
- Children will be collected from the following doors:
*Reception Out of Hours - door (through the garden area)
*Year 1 & 2 – normal door at the front of the school
Year 3 & 4 – Nursery yard exit
Year 5 & 6 – Main office Reception door

Be Brave

In our half term value,

Reading recommendation

There will be times when you walk into a room and no one there is quite like you. There are many reasons to feel different. Maybe it's how you look or talk, or where you're from; maybe it's what you eat, or something just as random. It's not easy to take those first steps into a place where nobody really knows you yet, but somehow you do it. Jacqueline Woodson's lyrical text and Rafael Lopez's dazzling art reminds us that we all feel like outsiders sometimes and how brave it is that we go forth anyway. And that sometimes, when we reach out and begin to share our stories, others will be happy to meet us halfway.


Anti Bullying week 2021

This week all of the children have been thinking about this year's anti bullying theme #onekindword.

You can help us at school by talking to your children about the impact just one kind word can have, especially when we are using technology or a virtual spaces.


This week we received the exciting news that we had been awarded £500 grant from the Ernest Cook Trust to support us in developing a "nature for nurture" space in school. The Ernest Cook Trust is a charitable organisation which shares many of our values here at Greenfields. They believe that;

"Every person should know the feeling of being utterly captivated and intrigued by nature"

We can't wait to develop this space for our children to use.
we want you

World of Work

Do you have, or do you know someone who has an interesting job that would like to share it with our children?

We are looking for local businesses, parents or members of our community that could help bring our next term school value focus;
...be original... to life. If you think you may be able to help, or you know someone who you could put us in touch with, please email; parentsandcarers@greenfieldsprimary.org.uk
