I have been made aware of a potential closure of the memorial park due to the forecast of high winds.

The Thorne Moorends Town Council Facebook page states

‘Current forecasts suggest that we may experience wind gusts of up to 56mph overnight and tomorrow. If such winds do arise, due to the high number of trees in the park we may need to close access to Thorne Memorial Park for safety reasons. Access to the café however will be maintained. 

We know that a number of parents use the park as a shortcut to Green Top Primary School so please potentially plan your journeys on the basis that access to the park may be restricted.’



Year 3 and 4 Pyjama Day!

Just a reminder that as part of our current Theme, Natural Disasters, Year 3 and 4 will be taking part in a charity fundraising day on Friday 29th March 2019 in aid of the fantastic charity, Habitat for Humanity GB.

Children in Year 3 and 4 will be allowed to wear Pyjamas that day with a donation of 50p.

Any questions, please see your child’s class teacher.

It has been brought to my attention that there is a worrying video currently being shown at the end of YouTube videos which are aimed at children. Upon further investigation, this has been covered in the national news today also. The messages given out during these videos challenge children to do inappropriate and dangerous things but also not to tell an adult or ‘Momo’ -a scary looking character- will ‘get them’.

This is obviously a huge concern and we will be discussing e-safety tomorrow in our daily circles in all classes, however, please also safeguard your children when they are using YouTube and other social media apps by discussing actions to take if something pops up they are worried about or feel is inappropriate.

Further advice on how to restrict searches on YouTube can be found here 

However, please be aware that some of the inappropriate messages have been embedded into child friendly videos in this case and therefore even safe searches may bring this concerning message up.




get ahead with your learning

I am challenging year 3 to get ahead with their learning. This week and the week following half term we will be focusing on multiplication and division. Any child who recaps the grid method and completes some multiplication questions over the holidays can have 100 house points! Please see me to with your sums to receive your house points!


Get multiplying!!!!

Charity fundraising for our new theme!

Years 3 & 4 will be raising money for a charity called ‘Habitat for humanity’. The children enjoyed learning about the charity and how it helps rebuild the lives of those that have been affected by natural disasters. The children discussed potential fundraising ideas and set themselves a target to raise £500 as a phase. We will keep you all updated when our fundraiser has been confirmed!

Thank you,
