Bronze Award from the Woodland Trust

Greave has now obtained the Bronze Award from the Woodland Trust in relation to our involvement in learning about trees – including planting trees.

Well done to Year 4 for this week’s tree planting and a big thank you to Miss Clayton, Mr Houlihan and Mrs McKenzie for helping us.

Year 4’s European Afternoon: Denmark

As part of a culture exchange, year 4 were visited by children (and their teachers) from a school in Denmark.

They shared with us all about school and life in Denmark.

 

 

Fab facts:

  • No school dinners – only packed lunch
  • No school uniform
  • School day is 8am – 1.30pm
  • There is just one school – age 6 – 15
  • Denmark has a population of only 5.5 million Danes (UK = 65.6 million)
  • Monarchy – Queen Margrethe II of Denmark
  • Tallest hill called “Sky Mountain” – only 150 metres above sea level
  • Denmark is a very flat country
  • Similar weather to us in Greater Manchester

We learnt the song Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes in Danish – taught by the students who came over.

Hoved, skulder, knæ og tå (Heads, shoulders. knees and toes)

Hoved, skulder, knæ og tå – knæ og tå

Hoved, skulder, knæ og tå – knæ og tå

Øjne, ører, næse og mund

Hoved, skulder, knæ og tå – knæ og tå

The only thing you can see is the leaves of the forest floor going down. The mighty Spittler only eats raw meat that he has just killed from a animal or a person he also eats freshly picked from a tree on top of his little hide out. Speaking of house when I say on top of his house I mean he lives underground. In his little house where he sleeps is apple red feathers that he glued together with his sticky slime from his mouth that dry’s up to glue them together. Also in his underground house is a little desk made out of huge pieces of wood and tied it light green chopped up vines. You have to do a password to get into the draws if you get it wrong you get shot with a trap which is a bow and arrow shot from the back and you fall onto a icy cold place with a ice bed. The passcode is made out of technology. A very long time ago in like the 1720’s all of the creatures from the forest of sin came out to steel things. All of the creatures from the forest of sin came out to kill people that there was only 5 to 10 people that were left. But the creatures didn’t know that when babies are born they grow up so there were loads more people again . all of the strange coloured animals from the forest of sin sped back to the forest. The people built bars that the animals could never ever get out again.
