This week’s Showstopper goes to Sophia Yates. After starting our Read, Write, Inc. phonics sessions this half-term, Sophia impressed Miss Freebairn by producing a whole board full of the letter ‘m’ – neatly and beautifully formed. Well done Sophia, keep it up!
Many thanks to our surprise Secret readers who have volunteered to read a story to our class. We truly love these special visits and can’t wait to find out who it will be next! If you would like to be our next Secret guest, please speak to Mrs Arnold.
We are absolutely thrilled to announce that we have successfully achieved our Green Flag award again! Well done Thorn Grove!
Over the last two years the Thorn Grove Eco team along with the whole school have been involved in a range of projects throughout the school to support our Green Flag award which we received in 2014 for our efforts to become more sustainable.
Recently the Eco team were interviewed by an ‘Eco-schools’ assessor to apply for our first ‘Green Flag’ renewal. This involved our Eco-warriors taking the assessor on a tour of our school and sharing some of the projects we have done and are continuing to do across the school. We have focussed on a number of areas including energy, biodiversity, waste, litter, recycling, healthy living and school grounds.
The Eco warriors answered a vast range of questions linked to all our projects showing a huge sense of pride for our fabulous school! Well done everyone! See our wonderful Eco Warriors along with some photographs of some of our projects throughout the year!
On Tuesday 22nd November EYFS and Key Stage 1 eagerly anticipated the arrival of ‘The Rhyme Rocket’ team as seen on CBeebies. The children were introduced to rhyme in the most fun way possible. They thoroughly enjoyed an energetic and exciting performance. Our special visitors really did make learning come to life through entertaining songs, raps, chants, dance and lots of comedy. The children haven’t stopped talking about it!
