A few of the old Greenfinches are not really having a new teacher or classroom even though they are having a new start to year six ( the last year at primary school). With them are the year six from Bramblings and 6 year 5s from Bramblings.For the new people arrived in Greenfinches it is a bit weird as we might not have the same things like:
- No golden time on Friday,
- Gold and silver achievements
- Getting a pen if you are on Gold and
- Curves ( times tables) every day.
But they are all settling in well especially the ones who might think Miss Marshall is a bit too strict ... in fact she is not! (It all depends on the choices you are making : what you are doing).
The Year 6s have been working hard all year for this important test which is a bit less important than Sats.
This test is not for maths , English, spelling or reading it is all about knowledge and thinking about what you are doing carefully.
The year 6s have taken their first exam on 16/09/17: on a Saturday. Their first exam was the Verbal Reasoning, their second exam is on the 23/09/17: on a Saturday; the Non Verbal Reasoning.
They are scared but as they say it is good to be a bit scared as you get things done quicker with a bit of pressure. Their first exam was 50 minutes long to do 80 questions and their second one will be 30 minutes long to do 60 questions.
We wish them all good luck.
On Wednesday 5th July it was sports day!
In the morning, we organized all the teams and what races you were doing. Then, all of the classes went down to the field and practised some of the carrousel activities around the actual track races, they were:

On Thursday 6th of July 2017 all the classes from Reception - Year 5 (because year 6 are not going to be here next year) went into their new classes. So the receptions went into year one with Mrs Whadcock; the year ones went into year 2 with Mrs Whadcock as well. The year 2 went into year 3 with Mr Johnston and so did some of the year 3 which were going to be in year 4.The rest of the year 3 who were going to be in year 4 were with Mrs Anderson with some of the year 4 that were going to be in year 5; the rest of the year 4 that were going to be in year 5 were with Miss Marshall with the year 5 becoming year 6. We all enjoyed getting to know our new classmates.
