ECO WALK Spring 2016

ECO WALK Spring 2016

Weekly Whiteboard

Welcome back to the Summer Term at Thornford Church School. We hope that you have recovered from all the coughs and colds from last term and have enjoyed your Easter Holidays. We are hoping to have a particularly healthy term, which we are kicking off with the ‘mile a day’ scheme every lunchtime, running or walking around the school grounds. As usual, the term is full of exciting activities, including the trip to our twin school in Hudimesnil, France and the Y6 Outdoor Education Residential to Weymouth. Other highlights include lots of extra-curricular activities including Sherborne Tennis Club, who will be at Thornford every Tuesday running clubs from YR-Y6. The April newsletter will be available on the website after school on Wednesday  13th April, with all the relevant diary dates for the term so far. So get those growth mindsets into action for a wonderful summer term.

Happy learning!

Neela Brooking

Acting headteacher
