In Science we have been learning about sound.  We had a fun time investigating how different instruments make sounds.

Christmas Fair

Year 3 have made amazing chocolates in a bag and a homemade painted candle holder to sell for our business enterprise at the Christmas fair. It is a competition between all the classes to see who will make the most money. The candle holders and the chocolates both cost £1. The candles will light up your house. The chocolates can be hung on the tree and you can eat them. Please come to Thorp’s Christmas fair on Saturday 2nd December at 10am.


In history we are learning about changes in living memory.  We have looked at teddy bears and how they have changed over the years since our great grandparents were born.  Mrs Dinsdale came in to talk about her daddy’s teddy bear that was bought in 1928.  It is called a Jopi Bear.


World War II

In year 5 we have been looking at World War 2. Some people have made some models, here are some of them. Lots of people have made Anderson Shelters, planes and a tank.

First News

We love reading the weekly First News newspaper!

One of the reason they want to read First News is because ‘the pictures are attractive and the articles are interesting.’

An article recently enjoyed was ‘England Glory’ because they like reading about sport.

The comprehension activities that accompany the magazine are challenging and really make us think.

Welcome LUNA & LEO

Year 1 would like to introduce our class reading buddies Luna and Leo.  Everyday our buddies will go home with a different child to join in with their reading.  Please look after them and return them the following day.

Thank you for your continued support.

Mrs Kindon and Mrs Allen
