CLEETHORPES

On Wednesday 20th September, KS1 had the pleasure of visiting Cleethorpes beach. The weather couldn’t have been better as we built sandcastles, hunted for shells and walked along the beach. We loved spotting the huge ships in the estuary and seeing the pier at the end of the beach. Our favourite part was the train ride back to the coach. The conductor gave us each a lollipop and we sang songs and waved to the passers-by. We felt like royalty.

 Tesco trip

This September, Year 1 and 2 went to Tesco to start their ‘Beachcombers’ topic with a fishy bang. After walking to Tesco with their class, the children we able to explore the fish counter. They learned about where the fish come from and how they are caught and stored before they get to the shop. We were even able to see a mackerel fish being filleted. It was fascinating to learn where our food comes from.

CRUCIAL CREW

On Wednesday, 13th September, the Y6 children went to the Lifewise Centre in Hellaby to learn about keeping safe as they start becoming more independent – it won’t be long before they begin their next stage of learning in Y7 and therefore become much more independent.

Whilst they were there they took part in a range of activities and scenarios that they may be faced with, along with understanding the consequences of their own actions (the age of criminal responsibility is 10).

They learnt about: fire safety, internet safety including cyber bullying, road safety, first aid, personal safety, and what takes place in a Magistrates Court.  Throughout all the scenarios, children were taught about the importance of always making the right choice and the consequences of making bad choices.

Newsletter : September

Welcome back everyone.

A new school year and new Parents to Thornhill so with this in mind this is information that we feel is useful to share.
Should you have any issues at all with the school, or positive comments, then there are lots of opportunities to speak to us:

  • Senior leaders at the gates every morning and tea time
  • Make an appointment to see the Head by contacting the school,
  • Talk to your Elected Parent Governor,
  • Contact the Chair of Governors through the school,
  • Email the school with your concern,
  • Send a letter in to school.

Whilst we would love to have an open door policy we can’t due to the safety and wellbeing of all the pupils and staff in the school during opening time.

Clubs, Clubs, Clubs.
There are many clubs that have just started or will be starting in the next few weeks. See below for days, times and member of staff running them.
