Year 3 Coffee and Easter Craft Morning

On Tuesday 13th March, Year 3 invited their families into school to share in a ‘Coffee and Easter Craft’ Morning. The children really enjoyed having parents and grandparents in the classroom. They made some lovely things and also raised money for their upcoming school trips!

Y5 London Residential – Day One

Our Year 5 children have had a wonderful first day on their residential to London.  We left at 8am and had been on the road for about 30 minutes before we heard the first “Are we there yet?!” We met our driver, Carl, who will be our driver for the three days.










Once we arrived at the hotel, the children found out which room they were in and who they were sharing with. It was an exciting time!! We also met Derek, our tour guide, who will be spending all three days with us.

Once the children had explored their rooms and got changed, we set off again on our coach. We drove around central London and Derek pointed out some of the sights. We got off the bus at Buckingham Palace and had a few photographs.










We had our evening meal at the Rainforest Cafe.  The children loved the theme with moving animals and sound effects!


















It is Evie’s birthday today so we sang happy birthday.

We went to see Wicked! It was absolutely brilliant!

By the end of the show, some children were starting to feel really tired – it has been a long day!! We returned to the hotel, got ready for bed and most children were asleep very quickly.

Safer Internet Day 2018

Today at Thackley Primary School we celebrated Safer Internet Day 2018.  The theme this year was “Create, Connect and Share Respect: A better internet starts with you”.  As a school we have focused on how to tackle negativity on the internet and how to instead be kind, respectful and safe online.

We began the day with an assembly led by the Digital Leaders. This group of children shared some great messages with their peers and introduced them to Google Interland, a brilliant resource for learning about online safety in a fun and interactive way.

In the afternoon parents were welcomed into school to attend a presentation by Mr Scott from the Bradford Innovation Centre. This presentation gave some fantastic information on all the factors to consider when buying a mobile device for a child, the possible dangers and how to avoid them. Alongside the expert advice there was also a raffle prize, won by Brooke from 5N’s grandma- well done!

After school we had an exhibition of all of the work we have been doing in school on online safety. Every year group had put up a beautiful display around the hall to present the children’s learning. Thank you to all the parents who came into school to attend the presentation or to admire the children’s work – despite the snowy weather conditions!

Thank you also to Mr Scott, the Digital Leaders and to everyone else involved.

Year 2 and the Cottingley Fairies

Year 2 have been finding out about the Cottingley Fairies and were very excited to find that we have fairies at Thackley too!  We think they are good enough to convince Arthur Conan Doyle!
