Year 4 had a wonderful morning with the Police Community Support Officer Team!
The children were extremely well behaved and the officers commented on the children's enthusiasm and positive attitude.
Well done children, we are very proud of you!
Year 4 had fun at Elston Hall Primary School with other pupils from across our trust.
They have been exploring the app 'Garage Band'. The children have learnt many skills that they are going to bring back to Goldthorn and teach their class friends.
We are looking forward to making music!
On Tuesday 11th February 2020, the children at Goldthorn Park celebrated Safer Internet Day. The digital ambassadors presented a special assembly to KS2 children about online identity. Children across the school took part in a PSHE afternoon session. EYFS created avatars and buntings about their favourite online activities. In KS1, the children discussed and created their ‘This is Me’ online identity and understood what information they can and cannot share online. Meanwhile, KS2 children created their online identity wheels and discussed how children needed to be careful what they share online.
On Tuesday 11th February 2020, EYFS and KS1 children watched a Live Read session that was broadcast across the UK. The broadcast featured a police officer, Dax Bryne Turner from British Transport Police, who read a new Thomas the Tank Engine book, Stay Safe with Thomas. During the live broadcast, the children learnt how to be safe when using the railway.
Year 1 children took part in ‘Paddington’s Space Mission’ inspiration day. The children made NASA space badges and rockets ready to take off to the moon. We took off in our rockets and watched the first moon landing by Neil Armstrong. Once we were safely on the moon, we listened and followed instructions to create a moon dance. We also created our own aliens using handprints. After a busy day we listened to the story ‘Whatever Next’ and had our own space picnic on the moon before coming back to Earth. I think the children will all agree that it was an enjoyable day and were left feeling inspired for our learning this term.
Year 4 have kicked off their new topic 'Hey Mr DJ' with a Disco!
The children had a great afternoon dressed as their favourite musical artists.
We listened to recorded music over the years and talked about the different genres of music.
On Friday 10th January 2020, Year 2 children took part in Rumble in the Jungle inspiration day. The children dressed up as explorers and rainforest animals. They recited a poem called ‘Walking through the Jungle’ and created their own rainforest poem. 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.
All staff hope you had a Merry Christmas and wish you a very Happy New Year. We look forward to seeing the children safely back in school on Tuesday 7th January 2020!
