Firefighter Freebairn

Another great big thank you to Mr Rob Hallworth (Thomas and Kate’s Daddy) for being a great sport and bringing all of his firefighting equipment to show the End of Week Nursery children. Much to the children’s amusement, Miss Freebairn dressed up in all of the firefighter’s uniform – including the (incredibly heavy) air tank!

The children really enjoyed learning about all of the brave and brilliant things firefighters do as part of their job.

 

 

 

 

Parents – thank you!

We would like to take the opportunity to thank all of the Nursery parents who have taken the time to be Secret Readers this term. The children have absolutely loved having surprise guests in to read them new and wonderful stories!

If any more Nursery parents / grandparents / relatives are interested in being a Secret Reader in the Summer Term, pop in and speak to Miss Freebairn, Mrs Yates or Mrs Tucker to arrange.

Basketball Team ‘net’ a great result

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.

Year six ‘Train a dragon’ on World Book Day

For World Book Day,  the year sizes channelled their inner viking and concentrated on activities which focussed on our chosen book ‘How Your Train a dragon’ by Cressida Cowell.

We split in to dragon teams and competed in our quiz; developed our ability to build suspense by creating movie trailers for ‘How to train your dragon’ and dressed up as characters from the book.

Here are some of the pictures from the day.
