International Evening at THNS

THNS hosted a fabulous International Evening, celebrating the many different cultures our of families. A BIG thank you to everyone who attended and brought food from their home cultures for us all to share. Children from Ecclesbourne Primary School entertained us with their fantastic Djembe drumming and our children were able to have a go for themselves. Thank you to all the staff who worked so hard to organise this event.

Harvest Collection

We collected lots of food and toiletries for Harvest this year and have donated them all to 'Croydon Nightwatch', to support local people and families. Thank you to everyone who contributed!

National Poetry Day 8th October

To celebrate National Poetry Day, we invited parents/carers to come in and read short poems and rhyming stories with the children. We decided to focus on the author Nick Sharratt, as his books and rhymes are short, catchy and fun! We also had a focus poem ‘Everybody has a Name’ which fitted into the theme of Black History Month, symbolising that we are all special and unique.

Macmillan coffee morning and afternoon tea
