Greythorn Primary School is housed in a modern building, constructed between 1988 and 2000. The accommodation has been completely remodelled in recent years to provide bright and attractive individual classrooms.

Greythorn Primary School is situated to the west of the Loughborough Road, West Bridgford, and provides education for children mainly from the “Compton Acres” estate and the neighbouring area. Some parents also choose to send their children to Greythorn from other local areas.

Greythorn Primary School has a strong positive ethos as a “Kind and Caring Learning Community” with a positive culture of respect. We are a rich multicultural community and celebrate the diversity of the many different cultures represented. We are committed to providing our children with an engaging, skills based, creative curriculum which engages and challenges children of all abilities.

 

Thank you so much for your support in our recent festive events in school, we feel privileged to work with such a giving community. We had our Christmas jumper day on Friday which raised £229 for Save the Children. This was followed by our cake sale which was run by a group of Year 6 girls and raised £100 for Text Santa. Many thanks also to FOGSA who ran another successful Christmas Fair and raised over £1600!

Well done to all of our Foundation Stage and Key Stage One children who gave a fantastic performance of Babushka last week. The children have worked really hard to learn songs, dances and their lines for the play over the past few weeks. They were so enthusiastic and excited to perform every day for each of the four performances! Many thanks also to all the staff and parents who have helped to put the performance together and help make costumes and props.

From November 17th to 21st,  Greythorn Primary had a Book Week to celebrate reading and enjoying books. We had great fun sharing books with teachers, parents and friends. Key Stage One and Foundation Stage had Footprints theatre company into school to tell stories and act them out. Key Stage Two had the poet Andy Tooze in to perform poems and inspire the children to write their own. Even some of the teachers wrote a poem! We all (staff included) had great fun dressing up as a book character. Thank you to all staff, parents and children for making the week go so well.

To support the Year 3 and 4 topic of Romans, we had a fantastic Roman day in November. Partake Theatre company delivered an engaging and informative day to the children.

They learnt about the Roman soldiers, the dress in Roman times and the entertainment they would have enjoyed. The children tried some food that would have been in eaten  and had fun making mosaics and aqueducts.

As part of our Remembrance Week activities we had a special visitor in school on Thursday 13th November. Reg Hale, who is 100 years old came in to talk to a group of children about his memories of World War 2 and earlier. He even has a very vague memory of bonfires being lit in the street to celebrate the end of World War 1! As he is a keen photographer he bought in a 1920s camera and some old photographs. He had many interesting memories to share and  the children enjoyed meeting him. Reg thoroughly enjoyed his visit.

Last week children in Years 5 and 6 graduated at the end of their 10 week D.A.R.E. course. D.A.R.E. stands for Drug Abuse Resistance Education. During the course the children learnt about different types of drugs, the pressures to take them and how to resist those pressures. At their graduation, the children told the audience, of supporting parents and relatives, about what they had learnt, and shared role plays demonstrating the methods they had learnt to “Say No”. They were then presented with their D.A.R.E. certificates by Mr Oakes, our D.A.R.E. officer.

Thank you to FOGSA who fund the D.A.R.E. programme at Greythorn.
