Working Together to Expect the Best

Welcome to our website. We hope you will enjoy looking at some of the lovely things we do at school.

KS1 Sports Day - July 2019

The children had a lovely afternoon on their KS1 Sports Day. Lots of races took place: sack, obstacle, running and skipping. It was a hot day but we finished off the afternoon with an ice pop.

Sports Event at Thornhill Cricket Club - 28th June 2019

Children from KS1 enjoyed a morning of mixed sports at Thornhill Cricket and Tennis club along with children from Headfield and Middlestown. There was tennis, bowling, dance, rounders and rugby. They had a go at each of these and decided which was their favourite. Headfield very kindly picked us up in their minibuses and brought us back to school. We were all tired and hungry but fitter and stronger! Well done everybody.  

Mini Mission Active - June 2019

On 28th June Year 1 were lucky with the weather and welcomed children from Pentlands and Savile Town for a Mini Mission Active. Everyone was divided into teams and undertook 7 activities. The aim was to get as many points as possible for their team in 3 minutes. After about an hour of sport all the points were totalled and the winning team was Indigo with 257 points. All children were tired but had a really good time, making more friends from other schools as they went. A big thank you to the Young Sports Leaders from Headfield for scoring and doing a super job running the activities.

Fun and Games with Mrs Gratino April 2019

Some lucky children had a lovely afternoon practising Multi skills with Mrs Gratino. " I liked the scooters best!" said Fatima.

Tennis with Tee March 2019

Year 1 and 2 children had a taster of a session with a Professional tennis coach, Tee, from Thornhill Tennis Club. Children and staff really enjoyed having a go at a sport that some had never experienced before.

Football tournament Headfield Junior School March 2019

Mr Williams organised a fantastic football tournament at Headfield where Thornhill Lees played Pentlands and Saviletown infants. Thirteen children from the football club went along to represent our school and they certainly did us proud. Their behaviour both on and off the pitch was exemplary and it was lovely to see them supporting each other as well as putting their skills into action. A big thank you to Mr Williams for all your efforts!

 Balance Bike Training January 2019

Reception enjoyed a full day of training from 2 instructors with the balance bikes and the teachers saw their coordination really improve.

Cricket Coaching with Joe Spring 2019

Year 2 children have really enjoyed cricket coaching with Joe this half term. Their hand-eye coordination has really improved and Joe was particularly impressed with their team work.

Multi-skills Morning at Saviletown

Some very lucky children enjoyed a morning at Saviletown Infants with friends from Pentlands and Saviletown Infants. They developed their hand-eye coordination and  target practice  with some fun activities delivered by Miss Farhana. Look at the concentration on their faces!

 Unihoc with Joe Spring 2019

 The children really enjoyed doing Unihoc with Joe!

 Real PE in Year 1 Spring 2019

In Journey to the Blue Planet our space themed PE unit, children from 1AL loved working together to make their own rocket ship.  


Children love Real PE in Year 1. This is Pirate Pranks where children practise balancing on different parts of their body and working with a partner.

Yoga Club Autumn 2018

Ms Logan has continued to offer this brilliant club every Thursday lunchtime. Lots of children attend and have a good stretch before their afternoon lessons.

 After-School Dodgeball Autumn 2018 

Joe worked with children from YR to Y2 to improve their dodgeball skills. All the children absolutely loved it.
