PTFA Ground Force Team - Saturday 5th October 2019
YEAR 6 RESIDENTIAL
Day 5 and final round up ...
This morning we have cleared bedrooms and now we are about to go and make some fires
and build some shelters... in the rain! The coach is coming for us at 130. We had slight technical issues on day 2 with photos so I will hopefully be uploading today’s pictures aswell as any others we have! I hope you have all enjoyed seeing your children participating in the activities. We have all had a fantastic time!
Miss Meredith, Mrs Stones, Mrs Riley and Mrs Palmer :)
We will be doing more climbing and venturing off site to do a rocky ramble!
WOW.... how is it day 3 already! Everyone had a great nights sleep last night and it has been slightly harder getting the children out of their warm beds this morning. Today, Mrs Gilmour is coming to visit and hopefully she is bringing the sunshine with her. This morning we are venturing on the low ropes course and then this afternoon we are climbing and canoeing!
It may have been freezing, wet and windy but we had a fantastic time!
Year 6 and staff have arrive safely and are already enjoying our first activity ... orienteering!
Tea time is at 545pm and we are guessing what delights are on the menu!
DAN WORSLEY VISITS
This morning the whole school had another brilliant assembly with Dan Worsley. Dan is an author of children's books from Blackpool, this is the fourth time Dan has visited St Thomas', each time he has brought a new book. All KS2 children have had hour long workshops with Dan on how to write character descriptions and how to use dialogue to move the story on.
Thank you Dan, we all love your visits and can't wait for the next one!
LAST CHOIR SINGING
St Thomas' Choir once again entered this regional competition. They sang beautifully and were an absolute credit to our school. Thank you to all the children who took part, their parents and also to Mrs Palmer and Adam Palmer.
PUSS IN BOOTS PANTO
This morning the whole school had a fantastic time watching a panto - oh yes we did! We are officially feeling VERY Christmassy.
Winners - Junior Technology Tournament 2018
Rotary Lytham hosted 12 teams of 48 kids purifying water at Hall Park Primary School Lytham.
Past Pupil Wows!
This morning, past pupil Nikita Richmond came into school and played the flute for us during morning worship. The whole school was absolutely wowed and amazed by her musical ability. She was very well accompanied on piano by Mrs Palmer.
Children in Need and Stand Up to Cancer
Today we had lots of fun raising money for two different charities. We came to school in non-uniform, and the School Council ran a Coffee Morning and a Bring and Buy sale for Children in Need. We raised over £555! Miss Meredith also shaved her hair off to raise money for Stand Up to Cancer - we have donated £100 towards this and in support of the very brave Miss M. Well done everyone for all your support and donations.
100 Years Remembrance - Lest we Forget
Every child has made a poppy in school and these have been displayed both in school and in Church.
Fylde Gallery Art Competition Entries
The following children from Year Six have had their work entered into the Fylde Gallery's Autumn Art Competition. Their work has been inspired by their English topic - 'The Wreck of the Zanzibar.' They have used pastels to depict their Turner-esque style work. Well done to Rosie, Bethany, Sophie, George and Max. Good Luck!
The Hobbit - September 2018
What a treat we all had today!! Key stage 2 had the pleasure of watching a truly amazing show! We had a theatre group come and act out The Hobbit. Some parts had us literally on the edge of our seats and we couldn't believe that only four men played all the parts! It was absolutely fantastic and we can't wait until we can watch another production.
Summer Fair - July 2018
FITTER FYLDE COAST
Hockey Tournament - June 2018
Members of our hockey club, run by Ms Martyn-Clark, entered the local hockey tournament. The children were an absolute credit to out school, and some children were even scouted by local clubs. St Thomas' came second in the event, loosing only by one goal which they conceded in theor final match against AKS. Well done!
St George's Day Festival - April 2018
We were very excited to take part in this year's Choir Competition, and were incredibly proud to be declared the winners! Well done!
Chocolate Bingo - April 2018
Another great family night was organised by our wonderful PTFA which raised money for the school.
Lytham St Annes Lions Swim-arathon
St Thomas were very proud once again to enter both a pupil and a staff team. Even though this isn't meant to be a competitive event, it certainly became that between our two teams. They represented our school brilliantly and also raised a lot of money, both teams winning awards for raising the most money. Well done!
