As part of our 'People Who Help Us' week, we received a visit from the Thornton Heath Neighbourhood team who were kind enough to let us try on their uniforms and explore the patrol car. The children had a lot of fun, showed exemplary behaviour and asked the officers questions to find out more about how they help our local community each and every day. We were even allowed to turn the siren on and off!
THNS children and their parents/ carers thoroughly enjoyed our cooking workshops today. They learnt how to make scones and all joined in with mixing, pouring, cutting, spreading and even tasting! Thank you to Helen and Donatella for arranging and leading this popular workshop. What shall we make next time?
We had an amazing day fundraising for 'Water Aid', raising £130 for this very worthwhile charity. Children at THNS completed a lap of the garden, carefully carrying water in a cup and then pouring it into our brand new water tray. Many thanks to all those families who contributed. Please have a look at our 'galleries' page for lots more photos.
This week our children have been learning about friendship. They have been drawing pictures of their friends and then using name cards to carefully write out names. We are very proud of their accomplishments and have created a fabulous display to celebrate their achievements.
All of our children had a fabulous time at our party today and a special thank you to the parents who helped us. Well done to the 7 children who achieved 100% attendance during the Autumn term. We'd like to wish all of our children, families and staff at THNS a very Merry Christmas and a happy New Year! We look forward to welcoming the children back to school on Thursday 4th January 2018. Have a great break!
Today the children sang a collection of Christmas songs for their families as part of the festive celebrations at THNS! All of the children put on their best singing voices and delivered a fantastic concert. A huge well done to all of our children and a big thank you to all of our parents for coming along to support us. An extra special thank you must also go to our staff for making the performance such a delightful one. Merry Christmas to everyone!
The children at THNS have been so good this year that Father Christmas paid them a special visit! We sang our Christmas songs and every child received a present. The children, families and staff at THNS also raised £80 for 'Save the Children' by wearing their Christmas jumpers to school. Please click here to see photos.
Many thanks to the families who attended our Sharing Success day last Friday. Parents/ carers were able to celebrate their child's progress by looking through their Learning Journey. A couple of our parents (who shall remain un-named!) even shed a tear when they saw how far their children have come this term!
We recently held our popular 'messy play' workshop, where parents/ carers learnt about the benefits of messy/ sensory play in children's development. Families explored the different textures of corn flour, moon sand, slime and playdough and learnt how early mark making can be developed through messy play.
