Red Nose Day
On the 15th March 2019 we celebrated World Book Day in school. We asked the children to wear something red and voluntary contributions of £1 were welcomed. Thank you everyone who took part.
World Book Day
We had an amazing time on World Book Day on the 7th March. Firstly we started the day with a Bookie Breakfast, where Children and their grown ups were invited to enjoy breakfast while sharing a book. The adults in each class dressed up to suit a certain Author. We then swapped classes throughout the day to take part in different activities based on these authors, we’ve made clay, bookmarks, puppets, done some creative writing… all sorts!
Dinosaurs Come to Life
We had such a fantastic time making dinosaurs come to life with the CLC workshop today (12.02.19). Look at the amazing creations from the children and their adults! Aren’t they superb!
Year 1 at Wales
Well done to the year 1 children who represented us at Wales High on the 8th February. You did an excellent job at representing our school.
Mrs Foxley Johnson came in today to work with the children on conflict resolution. She helped the children to see how situations can escalate and how best to calm them down and resolve them. Posters are in class to help the children remember these steps. Even when we are angry, we have a choice, lets make the right ones!

We even made the news!
Thank you to everyone who made a contribution to the Harvest Festival. We have received thanks from Food Aware who donate the food to the Food Bank in Maltby to help the less fortunate who are local to us. You should be very proud of yourselves, we definitely are!
Picnic Lunch and Sports Day
Horray! The weather held up and we managed to have a brilliant Picnic Lunch and complete Sports Day without any rain!
The children started their early afternoon with their picnic lunch outside on the grass. Everyone enjoyed sitting outside eating their picnics together.
We then had a really successful and fun Sports Day at the Junior Academy with Mr Richardson and Mrs Hiner. Well done to everyone who took part – you all worked so hard and did us really proud.
Well done to all who attended the Rowdy Robots sessions. It was great fun and the outcome was some amazingly brilliant robots! A bigger well done to the winners, Design winner Alfie and Race winner Samuel.

New Trim Trail
The wait is over and we don’t have to be tortured in suspense anymore…our brand new and improved trim trail is now ready and being fully appreciated by all. Luckily at the end of last half term we had some lovely weather which allowed us to get out and make the most of the new equipment.
A huge well done to Ben’s mum who ran the ‘North Lincolnshire’ half marathon. She ran a whopping 13.1miles to raise awareness for the Spinal Injury fund.
Brand New Spar
Selected children were at the grand opening of the newly relocated Spar in Thurcroft. We were joined by local businesses and the Mayor of Rotherham, Councillor Eve Rose Keenan for the official opening of the Spar and Greggs store. What a fantastic event for the

All content is from BBC Breakfast 12.03.2018
Shakespeare Week Shakespeare Week starts tomorrow and the Big Shakespeare Book Hunt starts LIVE on BBCBreakfast from our very own school with Ian Mc Millan! We cannot wait!
Tune in from 7:27am until 8:50am (obviously don’t be late for school though)
Well done everybody! Today we have achieved 100% attendance throughout the whole school! Everybody in F2, Y1 and Y2 turned up today! Now we just have to keep it up!
Beast from the East
We are sorry for any disruption caused by Thursday’s closure. The roads around the school were not safe and there was a lot of ice on grounds. As you are aware, we only close in extreme circumstances and we didn’t let the Beast stop us for long!
Thank you to all parents/carers who turned up for the Parent Voice Coffee Morning on 23rd January. We had the anti bullying co-ordinator in attendance who was very happy to meet you all. She was very impressed with the discussions we had.
We had an amazing Christmas at Thurcroft (those who were well enough) as Santa himself came to visit us and bring us all some presents. A delicious Christmas dinner was enjoyed by some of the children and we all had Christmas parties too! What a busy time it was! Well done to everyone for a superb effort in the Christmas Play! Everybody enjoyed it immensely.
Thank you for all of the Harvest contributions. We had an amazing display which was taken away to support the local communities.
You all looked so amazing when you turned up for the Halloween Disco and Film night. From the two nights we raised; £146.50 from the disco and £395.50 from the film night. Thank you all for coming and enjoying the spooky fun!
What a huge hit Diwali day was! The children enjoyed celebrating all things Diwali; making Diya’s, candles, crafts, sampling food and doing some acting.
Being in school matters, that’s why it’s the law. A 2 week holiday during term time takes attendance down to 94.7% without any other absences, this already places the child in the lower category for attendance and reduces their achievement level.
Being in school on time is a positive start to the day. It helps your child get the most from their education and inevitably leads to achievement and success.
Good time keeping means… being in school before the registration bell.
MacMillan’s Coffee Morning
Thank you to everyone who helped and who came along. You really were the ‘icing on the cake’. We raised £217.84! Thank you again!
