A big well done from me to the choir and all the effort they put in rehearsing for the Christmas light switch on. A lovely little video here (thank you Miss Knowles) and thank you to all of the support from parents, friends and family. Feeling very festive now!
Tyler was our Mindfulness Mentor this morning, leading us in a meditation to help us calm our feelings by imagining we were blowing snow on an angry volcano.
Sophie and Courtney have been so busy at home this week! Sophie made an incredible tank and Courtney has spent two evenings this week practising writing sentences which include fronted adverbials. A huge well done girls! Mrs Ogle and I are very proud of you!

The Year 3 and Year 4 children have been busy this half term creating some beautiful poppy canvases for the ‘Thorne Remembers’ gallery at St Nicolas’ Church that will be on display from 9th – 11th November. Why not pop down and take a look!
I am incredibly proud of all of the Year 4 children today. They worked collaboratively to create a canvas per class filled with individual poppies in remembrance of those who died in the war. The children used acrylic inks to create their masterpieces.
Well done to you all! I’m blown away by the high standard of art work you have created.
The paintings will be displayed in the St Nicolas Parish Church for the week running up to Remembrance Sunday before returning to school to be displayed somewhere for all to see!

The children had a great morning exploring the works of Roger Hilton and the techniques he used to create his paintings.
We used charcoal to sketch the large shapes we saw around the school grounds then brought them back inside and applied a mix of water and PVA to add tone and texture to our sketches.
The children mastered this technique and I am incredibly proud of them all! I can’t wait for next Tuesday!
