A special ‘Science’ assembly

Science teachers from Wingfield Academy fascinated the children with a range of experiments and information in a special assembly all about space. The children really enjoyed the different experiments that the teachers showed them.

EASTER BONNET PARADE

On Friday we had a special Easter Bonnet parade.  Lots of children had been working very hard at home to makes some spectacular bonnets – they all looked amazing and the children were very proud to share their creations.  The audience loved looking at the finished designs and shared their thoughts about how lovely they all looked.

MAGNA Science Week Homework Sheet A4

As it was science week last week, MAGNA have shared some exciting experiments to try.  Why not have a go!  Please be very careful if you are doing the second experiment as it asks you to boil some cabbage. If you are going to have a go at this experiment please get an adult to do the boiling for you. Please be careful of the boiling water and hot cabbage. Take care. 

Enjoy experimenting!

SNOW WHITE

On Friday the 8th February, all the children were entertained by a traditional pantomime in our school hall.  Audience participation was crucial to the hilarity with everyone joining in the traditional panto chants and singing along with the familiar songs.  A well earned morning of hilarity!

Magnificent performance at Magna!

On Tuesday 13th and Wednesday 14th November, children from Year 4/3 were involved in two evening performances at Magna to commemorate the centenary of the end of World War I. They performed alongside children from three other schools, students from Rotherham College of Art and Technology, professional actors and musicians to tell a story of how young men and women from Rotherham were involved in this conflict and the sacrifices that they made.

Children from Thornhill sang beautifully, acted with confidence and made a significant contribution to the overall success of two moving and memorable performances. Parents and staff, who had the privilege to watch the performances, were both very impressed by and incredibly proud of our children. 

HARVEST FESTIVAL

A big thank you to all the parents who were able to contribute items of food and come and share our Harvest Festival assemblies.  The children have all worked hard to find out about the types of food we eat, where crops are grown, the work of farmers, and about how Global warming could affect the work of our farmers.  They shared this information through some beautiful singing and reciting the information clearly.  All the food contributions have been donated to a local organisation – SHILOH – who prepare meals for the homeless.

 

Summer Parade

On Wednesday 18th July Thornhill School held their summer parade! All the children from Y1 to Y5 took part in parading around the school to the beat of our drumming band!! Many parents and friends stood and watched in the early morning sunshine as all the children walked past either as either a Tiger, Eagle, African Elephant or a Manta ray.

The costumes all linked to our teams “T E A M”  

Our  Mantra is “Together Everyone Achieves More”

The costumes and masks were stunning and all the materials were provided by the Big Lottery Fund for our “Carnival Project”

The fund ensured we had the support of 2 amazing local artists to support the project:

The children worked with Angie Hardwick from Ange Made Ceramics in Sheffield and Gemma Nemer from The Button Tin in Barnsley.

Both ladies are very talented and have supported the children well through the year in a series of workshops to develop their art and craft skills. 

Enjoy the images…
