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.
Children at THNS have been interested in 'The Gruffalo' and as a Friday treat, we made Gruffalo crumble and ate it with owl ice cream! We've also created our own Gruffalo scene where the children can re-tell the story using exciting props.
We celebrated 'The BIG Draw' at THNS, an event aimed at encouraging mark-making using lots of different methods and equipment. Children and their families also enjoyed taking part in a 'Write Dance' activity. Please have a look at our galleries page to see photos from this fun-filled event.
Thanks to all the families who attended our fantastic International Evening this week. Everyone had a great time and enjoyed food from the many different cultures that make up THNS. We were treated to African drumming courtesy of the Ecclesbourne Primary Djembe Kings. Please check out photos from this event on our 'galleries' page. We wish all of our families a safe and happy half term break and look forward to welcoming you back on Monday 30th October.
As part of our Black History Month celebrations, we welcomed Jane Grell to THNS who told traditional African stories and sang 'call and response' songs with our children. Many thanks to all the parents/carers who also attended to share this experience with us. We all had a fabulous day!
