Seasons Greetings !

Weekly Whiteboard


Thank you to all the parents who made comments at our Parents’ Forum on 18th November. All of the issues raised have been addressed in our  December Newsletter (out on 30th Nov). If anyone would like to come to a short follow-up meeting to this forum, Annette Brown, Binny Bennett and I will be available at 3:15 pm on Monday 12th December in the Old Hall. We feel it’s very important that staff, governors and parents work closely together to produce the very best provision for your children.

We hope that those who attended our Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar Evening, found it useful. We will do our best to get the powerpoint and leaflet with useful websites onto our website as soon as possible so that you can start practising your fronted adverbials and modal verbs!

We would like to thank the Digby Estate for donating two Christmas trees to the school this year and the FTS for the beautiful lights used to decorate them. Along with the children’s lovely decorations, it’s looking very festive around school. The Nativity rehearsals are well underway now and Oak Class will be carol singing at three different venues over the next couple of weeks. Parents are invited to the Oak Class carol singing  Assembly at 3:00pm on Friday 9th December and to the evening Nativity Performance in the New Hall on Tuesday 13th December at 6pm.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Merry Christmas from us all at Thornford Primary School!
