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.

 

The whole of KS2 went to support Team GB at an International Speed Skating Competition on Friday 9th January. It was an amazing experience which included Mexican Waves, spot prizes for some of the children’s banners, amazing racing from the skaters and the loudest cheers from the children whenever a GB athlete got to the front of the line. We were so impressed with all of our children who were great ambassadors for Greythorn. We were rewarded in one of the last races of the day with a massive win by Elise Christie, who narrowly missed out on several medals at the Winter Olympics. Farrell Treacy, who sadly fell in his final, tweeted to thank all of Greythorn for their great support. It was certainly a day to remember, my ears are still ringing!

World Champion, Jonathan Eley, and British Champion, Farrell Treacy, very kindly took some time out of their very busy training schedules to deliver a talk to KS2 in December. They spoke about their experiences as skating stars, which included Jonathan being flag bearer for the GB team at the Sochi winter Olympics. One child had a go at holding the flag in one hand with a straight arm and everyone had a chance to hold a World Championship Gold medal! We were also presented with a signed photograph of Jonathan in action, which now has pride of place above the office window.

We are all really looking forward to Friday 9th January when KS2 are going to watch the skaters in action and, hopefully, cheer them on to victory.

Mrs Platts had the pleasure of taking Georgie and Ethan to represent Greythorn at a cross country competition at Rushcliffe Country Park in December. The first twelve finishers represent Rushcliffe area at the County Schools Championships in February. It was the day of the ‘weather bomb’, so not ideal running conditions, but this did not put either of them off. They both ran really well and should be proud of their achievements. Ethan finished mid field and Georgie battled away and was very happy to receive a medal for third place. Well done both of you and good luck to Georgie in the County Championships.

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.
