Welcome to Class 7
Welcome to Class 8
We would like to welcome you all back for this new school year. We are very excited to see you all again and get the children back into the classroom! Although we are still in some very strange times, we will strive to ensure that your child is in a safe and happy learning environment at Goldthorn Park. We are sure that the children will be looking forward to their learning this year!
Our PE sessions will be on the following day:
Soccer 2000: Thursday
To keep everyone safe in school we have decided to ask children to come to school on PE days already wearing their PE kit: green shorts, white T-shirt, School jumper and black pumps/ trainers. We ask that children do not wear jewellery (including earrings) on these days in line with health and safety guidance.
Children will receive two sets of weekly spellings which they need to learn before their test in Phonics and English lessons. We encourage you to help your child learn the spellings and talk to them about the meaning of the words. Children also have access to Reading eggs, RM Easimaths and Times Tables Rockstars which they are expected to use regularly.
If you have any problems with accessing any of these, please do not hesitate to ask a member of staff.
We look forward to working with you over the next year to ensure your child has an enjoyable and valuable year. If you have any concerns or worries, please arrange a time to speak to one of us, as you play a vital role in your child’s education.

We have had a lovely day raising money for this worthwhile cause. With your help we raised £250.00 for the charity. Thank you very much for your kind donations.
In English, the children were reading a book called 'Spaghetti and Meat balls for all'. In the story, the characters made food for a large group of people and hosted a dinner party. We decided to give the children an opportunity to experience making their very own vegetarian spaghetti dish and having a dinner party.
The children had a fantastic time! They peeled, chopped and grated tomatoes, onions, mushrooms, carrots and peppers in order to make a tomato sauce for our meal. We added garlic into our sauce too!
Then the children watched and listened as the teachers began heating the vegetables and turning it into a sauce. The children estimated how much salt would be needed in the sauce.
We then boiled the spaghetti in water, added a little salt and oil.
After the food was made and mixed together, the children learnt how to fold their napkins. Then, we had a dinner party with relaxing music as we ate our delicious spaghetti!
September 2018 - Stone Age Day
The children had a wonderful time. They learnt many interesting facts about the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age which will help with our understanding for our history topic this term. Today, we learnt fow to make felt from wool, looked at fascinating artefacts from both the Stone Age and Iron Age period, and wove wool to make bracelets.
