Autumn Activities

Autumn Activities

It has been a very busy few weeks at Thorner’s and here is a sample of some of the activities we have been up to!
For Apple Week, we’ve pressed apples (thank you for all the donations) and made our own juice, cooked muffins, crumbles and turnovers.
At Messy Church we’ve made rainbows, clay animals and an Ark.
After lunchtimes, children in Bredy have completed their Daily Mile and shuttle runs and Chesil, Litton and Bredy have now started their Archery lessons on Thursdays.
In class, we’ve been making Autumnal scenes in Eggardon and painting music in Chesil!
It has been lovely to see the school up in ‘full swing’ again after the past 18 months.
