Beautiful artwork in class 7

Class 7 have been studying landscapes in art with Mrs Hardman this week and they reproduced their own landscapes in the style of Ted Harrison. The photos don’t do them justice as they look particularly striking in real life!

Next week they will be taking it a step further with paints and PVA glue to give a 3d effect! Such great work and pride from the children today!

Well done! Mrs Shaw


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.’



Adam’s Ark!

Wow – what a great day we have had! I had the pleasure of accompanying some of the Year 6 children on Adam’s Ark where we enjoyed sailing down the canal. Although the first group got incredibly wet it didn’t dampen our spirits and the group still enjoyed opening the bridges and the locks. A nice hot chocolate soon helped us to warm up! The second group were equally as fantastic and also enjoyed taking charge of sailing the boat!


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.
