Greenleaf Children Rise to the Challenge!

Yesterday, Greenleaf hosted its first ever Challenge Day – a forensic science puzzle to discover who had stolen chocolate from the teachers.  The children were very enthusiastic investigators, learning to work together, listen carefully and evaluate different types of evidence, including footprints, fingerprints and suspect statements.  At last the true identity of the thief was revealed … but who was it?

Many thanks to the PTA for funding this event – a winner all round!!

Summer Fete Sizzles!

Thank you to all who helped to set-up and run this year’s very successful summer fete – it was a sizzler and the sunshine was enjoyed by all.  As were the many stalls and entertainment.  Thank you also to all the parents, children and friends of Greenleaf who came out in force to support.  A great success!

Dieppe Day 3

See below for a few photos from our visit to the dairy farm at Louvicamp yesterday.  Today we had to abandon our visit to Artmazia because of torrential rain but spent a lovely afternoon at the ice rink, followed by a walk along the sea front eating ice cream.

Dieppe group arrive safe and well.

What an amazing first day for Year 5 and 6 school journey children.  A wonderful visit to historic Rochester castle, followed by a new experience for most – the euro tunnel.  Were we really under water?  On arrival at the hostel in Dieppe, dinner was served, followed by the excitement of settling into rooms.  Last, but by no means least, a visit to Dieppe beach – a few wet feet and one lost camera, but lots of very happy children!
