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.
To the rescue! THNS children received a special visit from London Fire Brigade today. Everyone got the chance to sit in the fire engine, speak to the firefighters and even use the hose! A huge well done to all of the children for their excellent behaviour.
Can we build it? Yes we can! A huge thank you to all of the families who supported their children to create make-shift dens and raising money for the charity 'Save the Children' in the process. With your help we raised a total of £60! Click here to view our pictures of the day!
