FROM THE EXECUTIVE HEADTEACHER

Welcome to Greenside

GREENSIDE FILM FACTORY

Dear Students, Families, Friends and Visitors – Welcome to Greenside!

We are delighted to give a big ‘welcome’ to our students. families, friends and visitors to our website. The summer term  ’19 has begun and as the blossom adorns our trees with a short lived but none-the-less beauty that signifies the last academic term of the year we are ready to go!

We hope that you will enjoy a Greenside website search and appreciate the many Learning Experiences that make up summer adventure we are about to begin. If you a student you will be ready to watch your next STAR Day film and to be inspired by the idea that Music makes the’World go Round’: an exploration of how music affects film and then a study of an iconic musical from The king and I to Bollywood

Our Students will also be focused on their spellings this term as we participate  in a big ‘Spelling Bee’ (think Akeelah!) and, of course, Y4 will be the 1st to take part in the national Multiplication Tables check – go Greenside Rock Stars!

Our Reception, Y2 and Y6B students will be part of the National Assessments and Tests and all out best wishes, love and support will be with them all over the next few weeks. The Y6 Tests will take place on Monday 13th May – Thursday 16th May; our students have worked really hard and we are proud of how they have approached their learning – go Greenside Y6!

We are thrilled by the prospect of our Film Crew Day Brief this term – it’s a fun and exciting prospect – we will be curating a Green-Day Festival in July in aid of Good Chance where we will be peforming some show stopping musical numbers and Dance Pledge synchronised show- We can’t wait!

By popular demand we will see the return fo the TEF Bake off! Greenside GGL will be challenging our Elliot Foundation academy partners form London, Birmingham and the West Midlands to a baking competition to raise money and to ‘show off’ our extraordinary cake making skills – watch this space for more information!
