This morning key stage 1 had a special visit from the estate agents William H Brown. They told us about their job and what they did and what is happening in Thorne to help it expand. They told us lots of interesting facts about Thorne and the children asked some great questions linked to our theme.
If anyone can answer this question on Tuesday they can have 10 house points and a treat from class 7’s treat box. How many people live in Thorne?
Thank you from Mrs Jackson, Mrs Hay, Mrs Wallace and Miss Hilton.
We have been very busy this week exploring Thorne Town to launch our new theme ‘Would you like to live in a place like this?’ The children have thoroughly enjoyed our walks to Morani’s Gelato Parlour where we ate some delicious ice cream! We have been to feed the ducks and are going to visit the Park at the end of the week.
We have taken lots of photographs and are looking forward to getting back into school to write about all of our experiences. We will also be doing some observational drawing of the places we have visited this week.
Our KS1 Christmas play this year saw our nine learning aliens come and visit us to learn all about the Christmas story. The children were absolutely amazing at learning lines, speaking loudly and clearly, singing some great songs and even doing some dancing during the final song! Thank you to all the parents who provided costumes and helped the children learn their lines at home. The KS1 staff team were very proud of the children’s efforts.
This afternoon the children in KS1 enjoyed sharing their theme learning with parents and carers. They shared amazing art work, information about their trip to The Deep and visit from Sam’s Safari, historical facts about the artist Henri Rousseau, great singing and fantastic performances of poems and talk for writing.
