Year 4 had a terrific time at Think Tank!
The children were extremely well behaved and represented Goldthorn Park very well.
All of the children participated in a Forces and Friction workshop where they learnt so much! Ask your child what they know about magnets and friction!
Well done Year 4, we are very proud of you.

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.

We have taken the difficult decision to close school today. Conditions have worsened this morning and we have many staff who cannot make it in because either their children’s schools are closed, or their journey is too unsafe. The safety of pupils and staff is our priority.

There are some  work packs below for each year group if you are able to support pupils with this.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused but we have had to make the difficult decision to close the school today due to adverse weather conditions.

Year 6 enjoyed a fabulous day as Ancient Egyptians learning all about the pyramids, the mummification process and creating their own side-portraits of an Egyptian Pharaoh using mixed media! They also worked in teams and using problem solving and communication skills to work together in order to escape from an Egyptian tomb. Thankfully all groups managed to escape with minutes to spare!
