Welcome to Greenside School

Dear Greenside Community

As always we hope our Greenside web-site will give you a flavour of our wonderful students and their very varied and intriguing successes.

We had such fun with our Pop-Up Festival just before the holiday – please take a look at some of the excellent photographs that show some of the ‘golden moments’ of a Festival Experience that took place around our site and showed what an incredibly talented group of students we have!

The summer term has begun this week and all the joy that the next 14 weeks promises to bring.

We are working hard with our students who have national tests and assessments coming up – particularly our Y6 students who will take their end of Key Stage 2 English and Maths tests in early May. We are so proud of their attitude and efforts and wish them luck as they forge forward in the next few weeks.

Parents/ carers – don’t forget Parents Meetings take place next Tues (19th April) & Thurs (21st April) evenings providing a formal consultation occasion for you to meet with your daughter/ son’s Class Teacher.

We are looking forward to ‘Dance Pledge’ at the end of May when we will be taking the whole of our Greenside community to Pinkwell school to share a The Elliot Foundation experience of dancing with our partner schools…Go Greenside….

Our Experiential Learning Model continues – our Art medium to be World Ready & Test Ready is Documentary and we will all be learning about and be inspired by Documentaries as well as making our own Documentary Films in our Thursday Crew Days. There are some wonderful texts to be studied!

Do check the Learning Plans for this half term in the different class pages.

We are also auditioning for a summer performance of Animal Farm, which promises to be lots of fun too!

Parents/ carers – do check out the letter on the web-site Animal Farm Letter and return to me by the end of Sunday 17th April to book your daughter/ son an audition!

If you have any questions about Greenside please do not hesitate to contact us.

Best wishes

Karen Bastick-Styles
Executive Head.
