Look out for a letter this week which tells you all about our new Forest School programme commencing after Easter.
We need volunteers who have a passion for the outdoors to join our team!
Follow the link for further information.
On the evenings of Tuesday 20th and Wednesday 21st March 2018 there will be an opportunity for you to meet with your child’s class teacher to discuss their progress to date.
You will be informed of your child’s progress and their next steps for learning this term. Our aim for these meetings is to create a strong home school partnership so that we can together, support your child.
We are now using an online booking system to make this easier for parents/carers and teachers. Please could we encourage parents/carers to follow the link from the text and email sent out to book an appointment with their child’s class teacher. If you are having problems with booking an appointment please contact either Mrs Smith or Mrs White in the school office.
Appointment bookings will be closed on Monday 19th March 2018.
Yesterday evening, the Thorn Grove Basketball Team went to compete in the District finals. They battled hard and did extremely well, facing stiff competition from five other superb teams. After winning three games and losing two they finished third – one point off second place. The squad and coaches would like to say a huge well done to Charlotte for achieving the Spirit of the Games award for her determination.

Today saw the the SAS Sports Ambassador Sqaud role in to action. The newly formed group of 24 dedicated volunteers from year 5 and 6 rolled their sleeves up and started their mission to transform physical activity, PE and sport at Thorn Grove.
This group will be heavily involved with the organisation, delivery and development of physical activity, PE and sport at school.
Our first assignment was to organise and audit all the PE equipment to make sure we have the right balance of apparatus and kit to help us deliver exciting activities to the other children.
Here is the squad in action
Over the next few weeks we will be:
Deciding on our School Sports Organising Crew
Starting training on delivering a range of activities
Researching and launching whole school competitions and initiatives
We will keep you updated of any new developments regularly on the website.
A huge well done to our amazing basketball squad who played in the Stockport Primary heats this week.
Basketball is quickly becoming a very popular sport at Thorn Grove and twenty two of our year five and six children represented the school fantastically.
We we entered three teams in to the tournament and all players performed excellently.
The B and C squad battled valiantly in their groups and missed out on more victories by the smallest of margins.
The A squad managed to remain unbeaten and topped their group. They will move forward to the finals later in the year.
A very special well done must go to Leah, Bradley and Thomas who were recognised for their superb performances and to Mrs Bodley who once again helped coach the team magnificently.
If any KS2 children would like to join the basketball squad, please sign up for Basketball club on Thursday evening. Mr Wilson would be thrilled to add even more numbers to our ever growing basketball programme.
The sqauds folowing the competition.
