Anti-bullying week 2022 started with odd socks day!

We launched Anti-bullying week with an assembly this morning with lots of us wearing our odd socks to support difference. We talked about the message of this year's campaign - reach out - and how we can all help. We looked at our new child friendly policy that the school council have written for us. This child friendly version and our updated anti-bullying policy will be on the website for consultation and your ideas this week. We are committed to being an 'Everyone's Welcome' school at Thythorn Field and celebrating our differences. This includes tackling bullying and ensuring our children know how to support and report at all times. 

Remembrance 2022

Our school community paid our respects to all those who have served and still serve our country on Friday morning at 11am. We had a silence on the playground and thought about special memories and important people. In our Friday afternoon assembly, every child brought in a poppy they had made to remember. They have all been joined together by a very creative child to make a big poppy which is fabulous. It is in our entrance hall for you to see.

Reading and phonics morning

It was great to see so many of our Thythorn community join us this morning for reading and phonics sessions in class. Reading is such an important skill and opens doors to all other subjects in school. Children can read anything at home and even just a few minutes a day will make a huge difference. Reading to them is crucial too. Children love to see and know that adults read too. They can read on-line, comics, picture books, non-fiction, newspapers, match reports - the list is endless! We want all our children to love to read. 

Andy Tooze - poet and author visited school

We were very excited today that Andy Tooze came and worked with all our classes on performance poetry. The children performed and wrote some great poems and really were following our message of 'be the best version of you'. They showed how to be a resilience ranger and Andy was very impressed with them.  


Harvest celebration assemblies

It was fantastic to see so many families join us for our Harvest celebrations. We hoped you enjoyed being in school again as much as we enjoyed having you here! Thank you for your kind and generous donations of food. It will really help the 'Community Fridge' located at the Wigston Magna Children and Family Wellbeing Centre Long Street Wigston. It is open Monday, Wednesday, Thursday 1.30 - 2.30 and Friday 10.45 - 11.45

Summer extreme reading challenge!

Over the summer holidays the children were asked to read in an unusual place. We have had some fantastic entries as you can see below! We will be announcing the winners in assembly on Friday. All entries were awarded a star reader badge for their imaginative ideas.

Network rail safety morning

On Friday 9th September, Year 5 and 6 learnt about safety on the railways in a practical and informative way. School will be involved with the local community to create some artwork for the bridge at the South Wigston railway station. Watch this space!

Wombles litter assembly

On Wednesday 6th July, we had a whole school visit from the litter Wombles of Leicestershire. We learnt all about the importance of picking up litter and recycling. Year 1 spent some time with the Wombles tidying up our school grounds. They collected a lot of litter!

Whole school African drumming workshop

On Friday 1st July, all our children took part in African drumming workshops. Each class had their own session and learnt different rhythms throughout the day. We finished with a whole school performance. Below are some photos from the Year 4 workshop session. 

Whole school fun run

On Friday 1st July, the whole school took part in a fun run on the field. The sun shone and everyone had a great time. We raised £2238.20 towards new play equipment for our Foundation Stage children. Thank you to everyone who sponsored us!


The reading workshop was well-attended by parents, friends and other family members.

It was lovely to see so many adults in school sharing books, discussing texts, clarifying vocabulary and practising reciprocal reading skills. (See photos below.)


The librarian from the local library in Wigston also attended to inform parents about the library services available to families. Don't forget to choose some books - ask about their 'BorrowBox' service.


Poet In School - Ash DickinsonThe whole school enjoyed the poetry assembly and then each year group took part in a poetry workshop, each class practising a different skill, polishing it and improving it; reading out loud and performing to a larger audience.

9.11.18 Thythorn Remembrance Day Assembly

The Mayor, parents and children gathered outside by the pond for a special Remembrance Day assembly. The children read poems, sang a song and observed the two minute silence. 


The parents were then asked to walk through the school, to see the amazing efforts the children had made to create a wonderful memorial to the Centenary of the end of the First World War. 


We would like to thank all those who attended, and the children for their amazing maturity while learning all about the history of Remembrance Day.
