We've had a great year at THNS and celebrated today with our end of year family picnic. Good luck to our children who are leaving us to start primary school this September. Please have a look at the photos on our 'galleries' page. Thank you to all of the staff, children and families who make THNS such a special and unique school. We'd like to wish everyone a happy and safe summer break and look forward to welcoming everyone back on 5th September.
Children and families from THNS were invited to The Brit School 'Little People's Day' this week, where they had a fantastic time watching performances by Brit students. We even had fun on a bouncy castle! Thanks to The Brit School for offering us tickets to this great event.
Dinner is served! This week our children have been busy preparing for their transition to primary school. The children have made, served up and eaten school dinners and have learnt how to line up, collect their tray and remember to use good manners.
We are very proud of two of our girls for their independent art work this week. They decided to draw a penguin and then looked up the image on the iPad. The girls then used different media to create their picture and applied their phonic sounds to write a label. The finished product is amazing and these girls are definitely ready for reception!
We have a limited number of places available for 2, 3 and 4 yr olds from September 2018. Hurry! Places will be snapped up quickly. Please give us a call on 0208 684 0494, or pop in to complete an application form.
The sun shone this morning for our THNS sports day! Our 3 and 4 year olds participated in the great water dash, balancing quoits, wheely push and superhero dash races. The parent races were a particular highlight of the morning! Everyone was a winner and went home with their own special medal and an ice lolly. A BIG thank you to all our hardworking staff and the families who attended today to cheer their children on. Many thanks to Mr Gadd and Whitehorse Manor for letting us borrow their field. Photos to follow next week...
Thank you to all those parents/ carers who attended our 'Sharing Success Day'. It was lovely to see so many families sharing their children's achievements throughout the year, whilst looking through their Learning Journeys.
This week, our school leavers had an exciting trip to London to see 'Not Now Bernard!' at the Unicorn Theatre. The children walked beautifully to Thornton Heath station and travelled safely on the train to London Bridge, which was quite an achievement with 53 children aged 3 & 4! We're so proud of our children for their beautiful behaviour and for being so sensible. A HUGE thanks goes to our parent volunteers and amazing staff who have spent weeks preparing this unique experience for our children. Please click here to see photos from our trip.
Our 2 and 3yr olds had a fantastic day out at Crystal Palace Park Farm today. Their parents/ carers attended the trip with them so it was a fabulous family experience. The children had the chance to meet and handle lots of different animals. Thank you to all the staff who worked so hard to arrange this valuable learning experience. Please click on our 'photo galleries' for more pictures!
We love getting messy! THNS led a successful 'messy and sensory play' workshop for our parents and carers this week. Families and their children had the chance to explore different textures, sounds, smells and most importantly learn how messy play can support children's learning and development across all areas of the curriculum. A big thank you to Helen for organising and leading a fabulous workshop, which our parents/ carers have given excellent feedback on.
