Thorney Close Primary School

"Where Learning Blossoms..."

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, everywhere you go

We have started to get a little bit excited in school with our Christmas display in the main entrance, which the children all love to sit in and listen to the music.

Listed below are the planned activities we have organised for the next three weeks in order to make Christmas as full and fun as possible for the children in these challenging Covid times. We are using local facilities to get the children out and active at the Silksworth ski slope and on the 10th of December we are going to have a whole school Christmas Fun Outward Bound day based on site, but led by professional instructors.

We are also going to perform our Christmas nativity, ‘It’s a baby”and I will record it and put it together so you can watch it with your family at leisure, in the comfort of your own home. We will also send you a compilation of our Christmas music singing with Les and Jen, our music teachers.

The early years children are having a little Christmas trip out instead of the snow tubing and we will all get dressed up for our Christmas parties as normal.
