Y6 Leavers

Today was the last day for our wonderful Year 6 pupils. We invited parents to a Leaver’s Assembly where all the children received awards for their hard work over the year. They then sang one of the songs from their end of year show.


We were very sad to say goodbye to some of our lovely staff today. We wish them all lots of luck in their new adventures and we will miss them all!

Miss Anderson and Mr Sen have come to the end of their temporary contracts with us.




Miss Niczyperowicz has decided she would like to pursue a career working with animals.




Miss Smyth is leaving to join a school closer to her home.




Miss Wilson is leaving us to work in Australia!









Mrs Smith has decided to retire so she can spend more time with her beautiful new grand daughter. Mrs Smith has worked at Thackley for almost 20 years and has touched the lives of hundreds of children that she has worked with. We wish her well in her retirement and will miss her lots.


Good luck to them all – we have loved having them as valued members of Team Thackley!

Reception End of Year Tea Party

Reception parents were invited into school today for an end of year celebration. Home made buns, scones, jam, strawberries and cream were on offer as well as providing the opportunity for parents to look through their child’s Learning Journeys with their child and celebrate their progress and achievements.
Thank you to the Reception staff for organising the event and to the parents for attending – we hope you enjoyed it!

Y5 Theatre Project

Throughout last half term, Year 5 have designed and created masks or costumes as part of their project on West End Wonder. Firstly, the children had to decide the purpose of their design, whether it would be suitable either for the theatre or a carnival. When designing they had to consider the colours, accessories and clarity of their image. Creating the designs was the children’s favourite part, building their ideas from scratch and having the opportunity to develop different design and technology skills such as sewing and creating solid structures. All of year 5 (including the staff) are extremely proud of the outcomes.

RG & RW Reception Class Assemblies

Our Reception children have almost come to the end of their first year in school. Both classes performed an emotional assembly about their memories of the year….

We are so proud of our children and the progress they have made this year. We hope you enjoyed the assemblies! Please leave the children a comment below.
