Goldthorn Park and Edward the Elder were two of the ten schools from across Wolverhampton to be selected to feature on the Mayor of Wolverhampton’s Christmas Card for 2018. Two children from each school went to Bantock Park for the special photo shoot with the Mayor and Mayoress, they were then treated to refreshments, which everyone enjoyed!
Keep a look out for the Mayor’s Christmas Card.
Well done to our super readers! We are through to the final against Wilkinsons Primary and Woodthorne Primary in the reading quiz next Wednesday.
We hope you have had a wonderful half term break and we look forward to seeing the children safely back in school on Monday 5th November.
We have pencils, rulers and erasers for sale in addition to the normal remembrance day poppies. These will be sold in school during week beginning 5th November. Prices range from 50p to £1 and all proceeds go to the Royal British Legion. Please send your child to school with the appropriate amount if they would like one.
Goldthorn Park have entered the ‘Paint a Poppy Challenge’ run by the SAA and the British Legion. This has proved to be a fantastic way for us to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of World War One, as well as displaying the progression of art skills taught across the school with a range of high quality children’s artwork.
Each year group created a beautiful, bright display of poppy paintings and drawings. These are now displayed in our Key Stage Two building.
Nursery parents, children and teachers enjoyed getting together to learn about and taste different types of bread from all over the world. Everyone tasted the bread and voted for their favourite.
Just like the Little Red Hen Mrs Sahni asked 'Who will help me?'.
A big thank you to all the parents who said 'I will help!'.
Generously they supplied all the bread and accompaniments.
Thank you from Mrs Sahni, Mrs Chana and Mrs Baker

Shiver me timbers what a day we had on Wednesday 17th October 2018! Pirate Ron anchored his ship at Goldthorn Park for a day of fun and learning opportunities. Almost 60 pirates raided our classrooms at 8:40am as we opened our doors. There were stripes, cutlasses, parrots, and eye patches galore. Pirate Ron taught us about pirate life, battles, and historical characters. The children enjoyed an upbeat puppet show, and took an active part in finding the lost treasure. After a hearty lunch the children got stuck in making fantastic puppets. There were pirates, mermaids and parrots.
Parents' evening takes place on Tuesday 16th October (except 3R) and Wednesday 17th October. If you have not yet made an appointment please return your appointment slip as soon as possible as this is a great opportunity to meet your child’s teacher and share any relevant information regarding their learning. We look forward to seeing you.
