FROM THE EXECUTIVE HEADTEACHER

Welcome to Greenside

GREENSIDE FILM FACTORY

GREENSIDE FILM FACTORY

Dear Friends of Greenside

Here we are at the start of the summer term 2021 and I am delighted to welcome you all to our Film Factory and to our website.

We are delighted that we are ready to begin the term together onsite – what a difference a year makes!

We will be ensuring we remain Covid-safe over the next couple of months and this means we still cannot invite our families into the building or into classes at the moment. Let’s hope it won’t be for too much longer!

A message to our friends and potential families:
We are oversubscribed in Nursery and Reception for September 2021. 

If you have been offered a place for September and you are reading this as one of our new families we will be in touch very soon with our arrangements to ‘meet’ you in the summer and to get ready for the next academic year. We offer you a very big and warm welcome to Greenside and look forward to meeting you all very soon!

With the movement amongst some of our families during the Covid period we now have a couple of places available in Y3, Y4 and Y5 at the moment. If you are interested in talking, visiting or applying please contact me asap: karenbs@greensideschool.org. If you know anyone looking for a local school please pass on this information.

Here at Greenside we have one more term of our Year of Colour and we intend to make a loud colourful splash in everything we do …. from our STAR days to designing and making an 8 foot Greenside Amazing Technicolour Dream Cloak  as a gift for Little Amal as she sets off on her Good Chance Walk in July. 

We have a super exciting term ahead!

We begin with a shared film from Nursery to Y6: Alice in Wonderland (Tim Burton version) and we are thrilled by the Learning Experiences ahead – including a Greenside Mad Hatter’s Tea Party in week 1 to launch the fun! In the final week before half term, we will be enjoying a live performance of the story to Greenside from a professional theatre company (by kind courtesy of our wonderful PSA) which we hope will make a wonderful finale!

We have new Specialisms ready to go that include Robotics and Home Management, summer PE and some amazing STEAM Experiences to explore ‘big questions’ and get us ready to change the world.

We hope later in the term we will be performing an open air whole school production of Oliver! 

Our script is ready, our cast will be announced this week and Greenside will be filled with songs and dance – how exciting!

As always if you have any questions about anything we do at Greenside please do not hesitate to contact us and we will get back to you asap.

Wishing all our families, friends and anyone else sharing our website today a happy, safe and happy summer term ’21.
