27th April 2018

Hello everyone,

I had the pleasure of watching Year 2’s assembly this morning about the Sikh festival of Vaisakhi.  They performed their assembly absolutely brilliantly and I can hardly believe they have grown up so much since they joined us in Reception in my first year at Thornton.  Well done to everyone in Wise Owls and thank you to so many parents for coming to support them.

We had our coffee meeting yesterday and as a result, we have decided to form a Thornton Walking Group.  If you would like to join the group please let Mrs Jackson know in Reception and she will let you know when our first walk will be.  Watch out for our health and fitness survey coming soon!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Sue Simmons Headteacher.
