Goldthorn Park celebrated King's Coronation with children and staff dressed in red, white and blue They created their own crowns and union jack flags, ate a scrumptious coronation dinner, sang the coronation song, wrote important events of King Charles III and took part in traditional games. Also, The School Council and Welcome Committee children had the honour of meeting Lord Lieutenant Dr Sharma MBE, who presented a message from King Charles III and gave an inspirational speech about his life and how he was able to achieve the title of 'Lord Lieutenant'. Dr Sharma certainly inspired many of the children who he spoke to.
Comic Relief 2023 was a huge success at Goldthorn Park. Children wore something red for the day. The School Council held a film night fundraiser for KS1 and KS2 where children watched a movie in the school hall. We raised £500! Thank you to everyone who contributed donations and attended the film nights.
Pupils and teachers dressed up in their night time clothes to highlight the joys of reading as they celebrated World Book Day on Friday 3rd March 2023. Teachers shared their favourite stories with different classes and children enjoyed sharing their favourite night time books. Year 6 organised and ran a pre-loved book sale as part of World Book Day 2023.
The pre-loved book sale proved to be a popular and successful event that enabled children to pick up a new book for 50p. A big thank you to Ekam, Eishamjit, Rionjit, Rupinder, Kashvi, Shana, Avni and Hannah who helped to organise and sell the books to children across school.
We raised a total of… £99.50 which will be used to purchase new books for school.
A massive thank you to each and everyone of you that donated books to help make this event a success.

Year 1 had a fantastic inspiration day to introduce our new topic, 'City Explorers' which is based on the book Claude in the City. Linking to the book, we had a 'robber' come in a steal a very special parcel that was supposed to be delivered to Class 3 and Class 4. The children had to chase the robber to try and get the parcel back! Once the parcel had returned to us, we got to explore all of the things that Claude had left for us in there. This helped the children to learn all about the different countries within the UK and the capital cities for each of them. They then had the chance to create their very own posters in teams to encourage Claude to visit the city of Wolverhampton by telling him all of the wonderful things that you can do here!
Year 4 children had a disco on their inspiration day! They came dressed as their favourite musical hero and shared great facts about them to the rest of the class. We listened to a variety of musical genres from over the years. Some were live performances! We enjoyed dancing and celebrating great music. What is your favourite music genre?
On Friday 7th January 2022, Year 2 children took part in Rumble in the Jungle inspiration day. The children dressed up as explorers and rainforest animals.

They ‘imagined’ they were explorers to visit the Amazon Rainforest and enjoyed learning number facts in Jungle Maths. In the afternoon, the children created their own paper plate rainforest animal and collage trees for their classroom.
