The Professor Fluffy's Roadshow
We had a special visitor in school today. Professor Fluffy from Liverpool University!
PROFESSOR FLUFFY - cute but also very clever!
Professor Fluffy’s Primary Roadshow is an exciting, classroom-based project delivered by Liverpool University. It is aimed at raising awareness and aspirations of university in school aged children. Children get an insight into what being a student is like, what courses they can study, where they can go to university and what happens at graduation.
Pupils had so many questions today:
- "How do I go about becoming a dentist..?"
- "How many years does it take to graduate in...?"
Here are some snapshots from the session in 5W, Mr Water's class.
30.01.18 – The Power Of Reading
At Greenbank we love reading, and we all know that practice makes perfect, right? Therefore, we strive to use every opportunity to foster children’s love for reading. We are also outstanding at using every surplus space and every corner in our school to provide a safe and comfortable environment for students to enjoy a book and improve their reading skills.
Look at the stunning reading nook set up in YR3 for children to read. Well done to our wonderful team of teachers!
READING NOOK - in one of our YR3 classes
We also welcome volunteers to regularly come in our school and listen to our children read. Today Mr Charlie Jones, from Mossley Hill Church was helping one of our students with reading and comprehension. Mr Jones was recording how long and how much was being read, as well as making notes of the student’s general progress.

24.01.18 - YR1 Gymnastics Class
Gymnastics is an important and compulsory element of the primary P.E. curriculum. Future Gym Sports deliver some of our lessons, with a focus on developing students’ physical skills, while having fun at the same time.
The National curriculum in England for Key Stage 1 requires children to master basic movements including running, jumping, throwing and catching, as well as developing balance, agility and co-ordination, and begin to apply these in a range of activities.
