The League Play Offs!

                                                                 The League Play Off!

On Tuesday 18th June, Greenfields girls competed in the football League Play Offs. There were four teams but unfortunately, one of the teams dropped out so our B team Greenfields girls stepped in. Greenfields B team were in a black kit and the A team wore white! The first match, the A team won 3 nil and the B team lost 1 nil. Second match, both Greenfields teams played! The A team won 3-1. In the last match, it was tied and if the A team won the match, then they would win the Play offs, but sadly at the end of the time they lost 2 nil! In the end they came second and our other Greenfields team came fourth but they never gave up! They were a good team to play against! Well done everyone!

Our visit to Crucial Crew

Crucial Crew is a training camp for training soldiers but has different activities to teach you about health and safety skills. There are 13 different life activities to teach children how to survive life.  

When we went to crucial crew on Tuesday 11th June. We did lots of
different scenarios like go in a smoke tent, Alcohol room, Abandoned dogs room and lots more. The room I am telling you about is the Alcohol room. It taught us things about when we drink alcohol it ruins' our body inside of us. Like it damages the organs. The lady who taught us proved we could have nice drinks without alcohol. The amount that adults should have is woman 2-3 men 3-4 units a day.

In Crucial Crew  we did many fun things such as the smoke tent the drug tent and many more . I’m here to tell you about the drug tent there was a 16 year old women who offered us a party with our friends tonight . Most of us said ok but somewhere sensible and didn’t take the offer. we were offered cocaine cigerates  these are our pics. By Lewis

:The smoke tent!
Yesterday when we went to crucial crew, one of the activities was the smoke tent…
Before we entered we were all very nervous, (we thought we were going to choke!)
But then the instructor reassured us, that it was sugar smoke!
 The main purpose was to teach us how to escape during a fire.
Do YOU have a fire alarm?
Do YOU have an escape route?
Do YOU know how to survive a fire?
Well here’s how…
1) Stay low!
2) Don’t stop to collect personal belongings!
3) Don’t panic
4) And get out as soon as possible!
By Poppy, Emily and Ella

At the end of the day, we were all given a goodie bag and the famous Crucial Crew T-shirt each!


On Tuesday the 4th of June at the Shrewsbury cricket club we had a cricket tournament and we were against all  different schools like Saint Giles,Saint Georges and Crowmore and we won  two games out of  7.This was the year six team and from our school there was a year five team and girl' s year six team .

Unusual Story

As a table we wrote an.....interesting story! We took turns saying random sentences until it turned into an odd piece of writing.

Pink writing = Mya
Purple writing = Grace
Red writing = Isaac
Dark green writing = Amy
Light green writing = Ethan
Ester helped and her writing is in black.

We went on a school trip today. It was the museum we visited, but it was not quite how we expected it would be. In fact it was quite the opposite. As soon as we arrived, surprises jumped up before our eyes.
The moment we stepped through the door, we knew we were going to hate every moment of it. Suddenly, out of the blue cheese, cheddar warriors wielding wednesleydale swords came and attacked- our friend Isaac was not amused by the happenings. We all froze to the spot, wandering if all of this was a massive wind-up. The cheese still proceeded, and we all knew we had to run. Being the brave, if not stupid one of the group, Harry called the angry cheddar to halt.
Unfortunately, the cheddar chose to ignore Harry’s attempt to stop him and he continued to pursue us down the old museum corridors. As we ran, we realised the floor was lined with warm ,toasted bagels, so suddenly Sam G came up with a brilliant idea to defeat/eat the cheese warriors. So we began to take on the huge challenge of eating masses of cheese and bagels.
To cut things short, our plan failed, later the teacher was hovering above a steaming pot of philadelphia and we all knew we were soon to follow...

Tag Rugby Winners!

On Tuesday 4th June, we went to Belvidere School for a Tag rugby tournament with Liam, Callum, Matty,Adrian, Gracie, Dana, Jade, Cayla, Owen and Ceri.

At Greenfields we run a range of clubs after school and one of them is Enterprise club.This club is a club that was inspired by The UK tv show “The Apprentice” In this we each get a budget of £10 ($16.53 australian) And then we have to make a company making items to sell and then make a profit.This year we split into two teams. Team number one is called “Team Fearless” and the other is called “Team Spectrum”.Team Fearless made paper bead bracelets whilst Team Spectrum made biscuits. Heres the link to their blog:

My Driving Lesson.

On Sunday, I went to Birmingham, to have a driving lesson at Young Drivers. Young Drivers was brought to the UK, because most people crash on the first six months of getting their licence, so if young children, under the age of 17 start now, they hopefully won’t crash! There was an instructor next to me, telling me what to do, and he called me “The cone Murderer!” because I ran over all the cones. My instructor had a clutch and brake on his side, and he also called me the  “Speedy one!” It was so much fun, I will definitely do it again!

Maths Games with Year 4 and 5!!

Last week us Year Sixes taught the Year 4 and 5s how to play some maths games!! Here is some of the games that we taught them: 7 Puzzle, Mathematically Possible, Shut The Box, Impossible Cubes, Maths Magic and loads and loads more!! I (Molly) played Mathematically Possible with the children! The aim of this game is to get the highest score possible! They pick a card of the top of the pile. (They can use the four operations + - x  ÷ to get the highest score they can possibly get.) On your card there will be three numbers, you can use each number ONCE. Then once you think you have got the highest number, you put your counter on top of the number on the playing board.
 Lucy and I (Lauren W) did Shut The Box and we played it with the Year 4 and 5s, it was really fun! Also they played some other amazing Maths games that we listed above! How to play: First, we told them what to do. Then they got two dice and they had to get the right number to get the blocks down. If you didn't get the right numbers, you couldn’t knock them down so you had to pass the dice around until the person knocked the last block down.
 If you would like to have a go at some puzzles and mind muddlers please visit this website:

Our visit to the Mayor - by Isaac

On Wednesday, our class's School Councillor and Eco Councillor went to see the Mayor of the town with the other Eco and School councillors, as well as three teachers. We left school at lunch time and headed for the Mayors Parlour at Shrewsbury Castle, which was only about a mile away. When we arrived we met the Mayor (John Tandy) and the Lady Mayoress. He guided us around the Castle and showed us his own private parlour, which was a great privalage as it is normally only open on special occasions. Next, everyone went to the Mayors Parlour at the Guildhall, which is the main council building in our town. Here he showed us all the old Mayors photographs,some pictures dating back to the 70s. Then we went to his other Parlour and Mr Mayor (that is what we had to call him!) showed us his formal clothes. It was basically a long red coat with fur sowed into the cloth, and a long hat that looked like a beak from a bird! He also showed us his trophy cabinet, where some pieces of silver dated back to the Tudors. All the children had a great trip and enjoyed both of the Mayor's Parlours.
