28th September 2018

Hello everyone!

Another busy week at Thornton—it’s hard to think we are half way through our first half term. We are seeing lots of lovely work in the children’s books and thank you to those parents who are hearing their children read regularly. It is so important to support your child’s reading so please can everyone make an extra special effort to hear their child read—or if you are very busy an older brother or sister or cousin could take on this important job. Reading is the key to a great education and we want our children to love reading and achieve the highest outcomes.

Have a great and hopefully sunny weekend everyone!

Sue Simmons, Headteacher.

97% Attendance Disco

Attendance is highly rewarded here at Thornton! We will be having an Attendance disco in January for all the children who have achieved the school target of 97% and above attendance for the autumn term.

All you have to do is come to school everyday!

Macmillan Coffee Morning

A big thank you to everyone who attended the MacMillan Coffee Morning today, it was great to see you all! We will update you next week on the amount we raised.
