A wonderful week…

This week in Class 6, we have been reading the story ‘Beegu’ and spent lots of time comprehending and inferring the text. Today, we got to read the complete story and create some Talk4Writing symbols in collaborative groups. The children thoroughly loved the book and worked brilliantly sharing beautifully together.

The children in my phonics group have been working so hard this week on reading and writing words with the zz, ch, qu and ur digraph. They have particularly loved hunting outside for words, finger writing with paint and even writing on the carpet in chalk. Keep up the hard work! 🙂


This week started off with a fun filled crafting afternoon with our families. A huge thank you to parents and carers who brought in lots of boxes for junk modelling landmarks in Thorne.

In just 1 hour some amazing models were made and are now proudly displayed down the KS1 corridor. We hope you enjoy looking at them as much as the children (and dare I say parents a little more…) did making them!

Family Learning

Year 5/6 have had a great family learning event today! They had such fun making slime (or at least trying to!). When they weren’t brewing slime they were busy creating and designing lots of potions, bottles and labels! Some even learnt how to draw Harry Potter!

Thorne’s Explorers

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.

We’re Hooked!

It’s been a wonderful few days so far of ‘Hook Week’. Here are some of the things Class 6 have been getting up to…

Here are the children 5 minutes in to the day on Monday morning enjoying our new Thorne Park themed reading area.

Here we are on Monday making lists about what is in Thorne Town.

Yesterday, the children got a little sticky and made lolly stick houses for them to display their family portraits.

Would you like to live in a place like this?

Class 5 have had an amazing start to hook week and have loved exploring our new theme Would you like to live in a place like this?

The children had lots of discussion about the places that we could find in Thorne and they presented their ideas to the class.

They had lots of information and I think they taught Miss Cooper and I a thing or two!!

What a great start Class 5
