Thornton Times

3rd February 2017

Hello everyone,

Our Collective Worship Theme for this month is Love. During our class assemblies throughout the month we will be learning about the importance of the emotion love and how it is important to show love for the people we care for. “Love is just a word until someone special gives it a meaning.” In Reception and Year 1 we had a fantastic turnout for our Phonics Workshops. Towards the end of the year, Year 1 have to sit their Phonics Screening Test which tests them on real decodable words and pseudo words (not real) and the parents got the opportunity to practice with their child. In Reception we had a selection of sensory activities where children and parents practiced their letter formation, CVC words and phonological skills..

Have a lovely weekend. Miss Charlotte Loach, Acting Assistant Headteacher.

 

 

E-Safety Week

In the final week of this half term, our school is participating alongside hundreds of other schools across the UK and pupils will be learning about how to use the internet safely and positively.

 

Safer Internet Day is coordinated by the Insafe network and is celebrated every year across Europe and in other countries worldwide.

 

To celebrate the many positives of the internet and to raise awareness of the issues that children and young people face online today, Thornton will be hosting an online safety information presentation for parents and carers of children in every year group and each class. This will allow the opportunity for parents and carers to work with their child in class (letters will be sent out with days and times). We look forward to seeing you!

Important—CHEWING GUM
