Fun Maths Starters!

Today we tried a new maths starter. The children worked in groups and each member took it in turns, to spend 30 seconds looking at an angle poster before going back to their team and drawing what they could remember! There was some great communication between team members and they were extremely competitive!

I was impressed with some of the groups who had a very close match to the original picture!


Learning Club

Leah, along with her friends, has set up a learning club in Year 5. She has set up this club to support her peers with any learning they want to get better at. She runs this club herself on her break time and lunch time and dedicates her time to helping others learn!

Here they are choosing whether to practise times tables or reading. I am looking forward to next week when they learn about fractions! Well done Leah!

Lucas’ Great Homework

Lucas has produced a lovely picture based on Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution. He has illustrated the different finch beaks which were used for eating different foods. A fantastic drawing Lucas – Well done!


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.’
