The Pride of Thorne Awards Ceremony 2023 – A KS1 Celebration of Learning

This evening, we are delighted to have held our KS1 Celebration of Learning – the very first Green Top Pride of Thorne Awards Ceremony!

This very special event has brought together nominees from across our local community who have been recognised for their invaluable work both with and for the people of Thorne. From foodbanks to emergency services to care homes … The list and variety of work celebrated this evening was phonomenol and each and every award was so well deserved. Congratulations to all of you!

Special thanks go to our KS1 children and their parents / carers for their ongoing support in both our learning journey towards this event and the success of our event this evening – we really couldn’t do it without you.

A huge thank you and well done from everyone in the KS1 team x

Class 5’s reading superstar!

Today, I have the absolute pleasure of being in class 5 and to kick start our morning we had Martha showing such courage when she ever so proudly told us about the most recent book she had read. We love Little People Big Dreams and Martha had found one with the stories of Rosa Parks and Gloria Steinem. Martha sat proudly in front of the rest of the class and read, with outstanding fluency and expression, the beautiful stories of these two inspirational women!!!! Well done and a huge thank you to Martha!

Is your child using the latest version of Timetables Rockstars?

I have been notified by TTRS (Maths Circle) that many children are using out-of-date versions of the game which may not have the new functionalities.

It’s important that they use the latest versions of the app and and website to ensure they receive the most secure, feature-rich and enjoyable experience of Times Tables Rock Stars. Some of the versions are so far behind that they’re missing out on key updates. 


If using the website at home, please ask parents to visit to load the latest version in their device’s browser. Otherwise please to update the Times Tables Rock Stars app from the app store.

Refreshments will be available and there will also be the chance to buy a digital copy of the amazing photographs that were taken of the children during our superhero dress up day at the beginning of term.

Please fill in this Google Form to request seats at the event. There is no limit to the number of other children you can bring but the adult seats will be restricted to 2 per KS1 class member.

If your child attends an after school club you could send in party clothes for them to change into and meet them at the ceremony. If not, you could take them home to change and return to school in time for the awards to begin at 4pm.

The children are looking forward to welcoming you all!

Y1 Family Learning

What a wonderful afternoon we spent today with our parents and carers at our family learning event. We got crafty to make crackers and gift boxes and used wrapping paper, sparkles and lots of love to wrap presents to spread Christmas cheer in our community. The gifts will be donated to The Thorne and Moorends Food Bank at our celebration of learning which will take place next Thursday (please see other blog post for details of how to book seats).

Today’s event wouldn’t have been as successful as it was without your support and for that, as always, we are so thankful.

Looking forward to seeing you all next week

The Y1 team xx
