Comic Relief Red Nose Day 17th March 2023
Year 3 and 4 had a brilliant time at the Mosque! They could describe and identify objects and key features of this beautiful place of worship and they were excellent, respectful representatives of Thorner School!
Year 1 and 2 loved their visit to the Mosque! They embraced the whole experience and even tried on some traditional clothing. The children built up their knowledge of the features of the Mosque and drew these in beautiful detail.
3 Faiths Visit
This week, year 5 and 6 visited a Gurdwara, Synagogue and Mosque all in one day! They were able to describe and make connections between the key features of the different religions and religious places whilst exploring the diversity of our community.

Years 3, 4, 5 & 6 enjoyed learning about different professions at our career fair this afternoon. Thank you to the people who kindly gave up their time to come into school for the careers fair.
Leeds United Girls Tournament
Our girls’ football team took part in the Leeds United tournament this week at Goals and played with great skill and determination. Two wins and two losses meant a third place finish in the group stage, and the disappointment of narrowly missing out on the knockout rounds but each of the 10 players gave their all, committed to the team cause and left with smiles on their faces.
Year 5 shared their sporting skills at Leeds Beckett University this week. All children demonstrated our school values and were a credit to our school.
Maple have worked incredibly hard in science. We have been learning about forces! Look at some of our investigations. We tested friction as well as water and air resistance and finished our topic by making some gears!
Maple have been very resilient in our Commando Joe sessions. They have transported water, collected ‘food’ and built bridges, shelters and vehicles. They found it challenging but have all succeeded in their missions!
Oak Class Football Team
Well done you our year 6 team who played in the Leeds United Primary Stars tournament yesterday...amazong team work and team spirit! Next stop Leeds United’s training ground!
Oak Class had an amazing time on residential, here are some of the things they got up to.
The School Council
The School Council, with support from Miss Davies have had a busy week, giving up their morning playtimes to sell the Children in Need merchandise. The School Council also did a brilliant job of talking to the children in assembly to tell us what Children in Need is all about and who is helped by the money raised. Thank you to the School Council and Miss Davies for all of their efforts.
Thank you for all the amazing donations for Harvest Festival, these have been collected by @CryptLeeds
