Bacup in Bloom Flower Festival 2017!

Children, parents and staff had a fabulous afternoon at our flower festival. Luckily, the rain stayed away allowing everyone to follow a trail of  beautiful, and very creative, 'gardens in a box'! From wellington boot gardens to caterpillar gardens, our families produced some magnificent designs. The trail led to the wonderfully colourful and exciting class planters in the KS2 yard and in EYFS. Each class picked a theme from their year's learning and designed and made their garden:

Rec: Under the sea

Year 1/2C: Brazil

Year 1/2K: Minibeasts

Year 2: Wind in the Willows

Year 3: The Tin Forest

Year 3/4 & Year 4/5: Romans

Year 5: Bees

Year 6: World War

 

After admiring the gardens, parents and children enjoyed a game of crazy golf and orienteering before having a well-earned rest with a cup of tea and cake.

 

Science Week at Thorn 2017!

The children and staff had a fantastic time during Science week. All children visited Thorn's very own science lab where they took part in a series of 'wow' experiments with plenty of pop, fizz and bang! We all got very messy but luckily we were wearing our lab coats just like real scientists. The children used their predicting, observation, comparing, modelling and evaluation skills in the lab. Fantastic scientific vocabulary could be heard from children of all ages. 

 

Our science dress-up day was a huge success. The children, with help from parents, showed their creativity with fantastic costumes. We had astronauts, explorers, botanists, robots, surgeons, nurses, vets and many more. This really helped the children to see the impact of science all around them.

 

The week was topped off with a visit from Nick Hawken from Junior STEM www.juniorstem.co.uk. The children took part in thoroughly engaging and exciting Lego robotics workshops. Shouts of 'Wow!' and cheers of success could be heard as children successfully programmed their very own models. The importance of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) in shaping our futures cannot be stressed enough. This workshop gave children an insight into jobs of the future and the children were inspired. Here are just a few of the children's comments:

"This is like actual engineering!"

"This is so cool!"

"I've got it! I can do it by myself!"

"I can;t believe I actually made it move!"

"I'm putting this on my Christmas list!"

   World Book Day was a great success again this year with pupils and staff dressing up as their favourite book

   characters. All the children looked great in their costumes and so did some of the staff! Winners chosen

   from each class received a prize, see them below and lots of other photographs from the day.

Fun in the Snow!

The snow may have nearly gone but we have lots of memories of the fun we had!

We thoroughly enjoyed building snowmen, dens, igloos, snow sculptures and even snow trolls!

Each class designed their own den or igloo. Miss Riding and her class had an ambitious design for their igloo which was large enough to hold the whole class!

Miss Tierney's class did really well and nearly managed to complete their roof. It's all been very exciting!

 

As you can see from the photos... We worked really hard and the results were fantastic!

See if you can work out which teacher is making a Snow Angel!
