Coronation Celebration 2023- King Charles III
This afternoon the whole school and their families came together to mark a great moment in history- the coronation of King Charles III. The celebration began with a truly wonderful afternoon tea complete with Royal cupcakes and biscuits, delicious quiches and sandwiches. The tables were decorated with an array of beautiful handmade crafts by the children including- decorated crowns, Royal boiled eggs, commemorative plates and Royal wooden figures. The tea was followed by some traditional sporting events and lots of fun was had by all involved as the children and their families participated in a range of races including a variety of running races, egg and spoon, potato race, a family relay and of course the real favourite of the afternoon- family sack! It has been a terrific, memorable day which was enjoyed by all. Thank you so much to everyone who was involved- it was a brilliant celebration which we’re sure we won’t forget. Have a wonderful time celebrating over the coronation weekend.
Easter Fete 2023
An ‘egg-celent’ time was had by the whole school at the Easter Fete this afternoon and the effort made by the children in the Easter garden, egg and bonnet competitions was outstanding- there were some fantastic creations which were judged and rewarded! The afternoon began with an egg hunt outdoors and a chocolate treat prize! All before the children were involved in an afternoon of activities including an Easter Bunny hop race, egg and spoon race, decorating an Easter biscuit, making Easter cards and playing games including ‘egg drop’, pin the tail on the bunny, giant egg run with pipes, name the lamb and more! The fun was enjoyed with a tasty treat of popcorn and lemonade before an Easter bonnet parade commenced around the garden. What a brilliant afternoon- Happy Easter everyone!
What a wonderful way to begin our Christmas celebrations. The children have worked so hard and really enjoyed performing this year's Nativity,
We have come together to take part in 'The Big Plastic Count' organised by Greenpeace UK and Everyday Plastic. We began by recapping the importance of caring for our environment and how, as duty bearers, we all have the power to make a difference both locally and, as a result of these actions, globally. As we collected litter from our village we sorted it into plastic and other recyclable litter. The children were very aware about how removing litter from the environment, and then recycling it, makes a difference to the waste that can pollute the oceans and other protected wildlife areas as well as its impact on climate change. Over the rest of this week, the children will keep a tally on the plastic that is thrown away to help us find ways where can reduce this waste. We are very proud to be working towards becoming a Gold UNICEF - Rights Respecting School.
We are delighted and very proud to share our fantastic news - Greystoke School has topped the performance tables!
This is the result of everyone's hard work and dedication in supporting our children's learning and curriculum. Thank you to all of our governors and staff who have made these results possible.
