Lower School

The Lower School (Reception-Year 2) is an exciting place to learn and play. The classrooms are situated on the ground floor of the main building and have easy access to the play areas and the assembly hall.

In Reception the children cover a broad range of topics linked to the Early Years Foundation Curriculum. In Years 1 and 2, teaching will cover Literacy, Numeracy, Topic Work, French, Art and Design, Information Technology, Music, Drama, Physical Education and Forest School. In support of early literacy, the children use Anima Phonics, which is a fun and interactive systematic phonics scheme. The children also have regular access to iPads, Chromebooks and interactive whiteboards. The children love to explore the outdoors and regularly visit the woods, fields and eco-garden area. Children in the Lower School get the best possible start and there is plenty of space to grow!

  • Last week Mrs Thomas accompanied seven of our Year 8 pupils to visit Treloars school for a movement and drama workshop.  The morning was led by Katie Goad, a dance expert with specialist teaching experience in inclusive dance.  The morning involved three sessions and a tour of the school and associated college. 
 
The focus of the workshops was to build confidence, trust, communication and friendship between the Thorngrove pupils and Treloars pupils.  Mrs Thomas was so proud of the patience, kindness, creativity and fun that the Thorngrove pupils gave to the morning.  She commented, “the connections that were built within a short time were clear to see and the Treloars pupils were an inspiration to us all.  The tour of the school was so interesting and gave us an insight into specialist provision and an understanding of the wider community.  Altogether an amazing trip and one that will stay in our hearts for a very long time.”

On Friday our Year 3 and 4 girls were lucky enough to go to Bradfield College for a cricket coaching session. 🏏

It was a brilliant afternoon focussing on movement and fielding skills.  They also used the nets to hone their batting technique and finished with a game of Diamond Cricket - one of their favourites!  Thank you @bradfield_college for such a great time - we loved it! 💚💙
