What a great time Year 5/6 choir had at the Singing in the Rain event - Queen Square Tuesday 17th May.
We've missed this event immensely, but more than made up for it as not being able to take part over the last 3 years.
We sang our hearts out, and made some wonderful memories!

Goldthorn Park celebrated Eid in school, children dressed in their traditional clothes or wore a shade of green, which Islamic holy colour. They started with an assembly and during the day children got involved in different Eid activities including calligraphy, making Eid cards, and other art and craft activities.
We have had a fantastic day at the Botanical Gardens, getting up close to exotic animals, creating art using natural materials and exploring the outdoors! The children were all amazing, polite, considerate and inquisitive. A credit to Goldthorn Park!

Year 4 thoroughly enjoyed their visit to the ThinkTank Museum in Birmingham, where they took part in an Electrifying Science workshop to support their learning in school.
"I had so much fun and learnt lots of new things about electricity" said Jia. "I would love to go again! It was an great day!" said Marta.
Comic Relief 2022 was a huge success at Goldthorn Park. Children wore something red or became superheroes for the day. The School Council raised money by leading a cake sale. We raised £450! Thank you to everyone who contributed donations for the non-uniform days and took part in the fun activities.
Goldthorn Park Primary is working towards becoming a School of Sanctuary.
A School of Sanctuary is a school that is committed to being a safe and welcoming place for those seeking sanctuary. It is a space for those whose lives were in danger in their own country, who have troubles at home or are just looking for a space where they can feel safe.
We will keep you up-to-date with our progress and share our success with you.
"Reading for pleasure opens up new worlds for children. It gives them the opportunity to use their imagination to explore new ideas, visit new places and meet new characters. Reading for pleasure also improves children’s well-being and empathy. It helps them to understand their own identity, and gives them an insight into the world and the views of others. Research shows that reading for pleasure can be directly linked to children’s success throughout their time at school and even into adulthood."

Goldthorn Park took part in World Book Day on Friday 4th March. Children were invited to dress up as their favourite book characters. All children enjoyed taking part in book related activities during the day.
Amongst the many characters from Harry Potter, and multiple princesses across the year groups, we also had very hungry caterpillars, Where's Wally, Horrid Henry, Gangsta Granny, Mildred Hubble and the Cat in the Hat, amongst many others. Staff also enjoyed dressing up as much as the children.
World Book Day in Nursery!
We enjoyed breakfast bagels and books!
