We have recognised as a school that not only is it important that we ensure the children all have access to learning during the school closures but we need to create opportunities for our community to interact with each other and have some fun.
I have added a timetable below for our extra curricular clubs that will be running from Monday 6th April.
Each club will run in a slightly different way

|Virtual Choir with Mrs Holcombe||Film club with Mrs Pyke||Mr Rhodes Lego Challenge||Family Game Time with Mr Tucker|
Mrs Bayley's Growth Mindset Challenge
|Art with Mrs Hunt||Miss Berry's Magazine Club||Mrs Brown's card games|
Dance Club -
Growth Mindset Club - Do you want to challenge yourself? This club will help you to try out new things. It will be an opportunity to think differently by practising so that when you are faced with a challenge you will be more determined to succeed - you will learn to overcome knockbacks, try again and bounce back. Mrs Bayley will help you to 'Be your best!'
Are you a budding reporter? Do you want to become a journalist or do you just enjoy writing? Join Miss Berry on a Wednesday evening at 4pm to plan our new school magazine which we can send out to our families to keep everyone informed about our new virtual school life. We need people to write articles on anything that interests them - nature, sport, music, school work, stories about staying at home, book reviews, jokes, top tips for staying healthy, recipes, craft ideas, video gaming tips. It is up to you! We might even try a video call so that we can work together on ideas. All welcome! Looking forward to you joining me! You can tweet your ideas to #TPSHomelearning and #TPSSchoolMag
Virtual choir - tbc
Do you like drawing? Do you enjoy colouring? Do you love creating?
Then try… Art Club on a Tuesday at 4pm.
Art Club is for everyone and for all ages.
A range of art and craft activities will be made available on Twitter every week.
· YouTube video tutorials
· Printable step by step guides
· Links to exciting websites and videos
All activities will need very few resources, to make it easier for everyone to get involved while at home.
We would love for you all to share your art and craft with us on Twitter … @ThornhillPS #TPSartclub #TPShomelearning
If you have any ideas for activities you would like to try please email … email@example.com
Film Club -
Every Wednesday I will suggest 3 films that can be viewed in the following week. At least 1 will be on Freeview. I will give a brief summary of the films along with details of where to find them.
I will ask children/adults to either write or video a review and either email it to me or put on Twitter with the hashtags #TPSfilmclub #TPShomelearning
Every week I will choose a reviewer of the week which will be announced on the follow week’s video and on Twitter.
Where appropriate I may suggest other weekly tasks to go with the films eg. Make a poster for the film, make a trailer using IMOVIE, write about your favorite character etc.
I will post a separate video with tips on how to write a review.
Lego Challenge -
Time to go break out the bricks and get creative. Join Mr Rhodes and take on a weekly build or design project.. Mr Rhodes will upload a video of the week's challenge to the School Youtube channel and share it on Twitter and the school webpage. Maybe you'd like to share your work with us? #TPSlego #TPShomelearning
Card Games -
At 4.00 on a Thursday Mrs Brown will Tweet a link to the school youTube channel where there will be a clip of her teaching you a new card game to play together. You can post clips of yourself playing the game on Twitter with the hashtag #TPScardgames #TPShomelearning
Family Games -
At 4.00 on a Friday Mr Tucker will Tweet a link to the school youTube channel where there will be a clip of him explaining a new game to play together. All of these games will be for groups of players, either in your house or using the internet (zoom, WhatsApp, Facetime or Microsoft Teams) to play with friends or family in other houses.
