Along The Amazon

Last week Year 5 performed a visual delight to families dressed as birds, butterflies, plants and even a poison dart frog, all as part of their class assembly.

Art Workshops

Thomas Jones was lucky enough to receive a grant towards our art curriculum. All classes have been taking part in a printing workshop based around the theme of Kindness to Animals, Ourselves and Others.

RSPCA Fundraiser

To thank the RSPCA for supporting the school when one of our foxes was injured earlier this month, we held a fundraiser on the 9th February.

Food Chains and Ecosystems

Last week, the Year 4 scholars excelled in an inventive and language-rich depiction of our fragile eco-system. The staging, costumes and face paints were exacting.

Respect Workshops

This week children enjoyed a visit from Simone Torrey (Education Officer for the local authority) who undertook interactive class workshops across the school, where children explored their understanding of mutual respect and tolerance.

Black History Month

The whole school Black History Month project organised by history leader Ms Kiley, inspired children to research the Empire Windrush as part of the 75 year anniversary.

Harvest Contributions

Last half term councillors from across the school took it in turns to accompany Ms Polly Holmes to Thomas Darby Court Sheltered Housing delivering the many contributions for Harvest Festival.

Immersive History

Year 6 and Ms Rachel McCombe arrived this morning resplendent in an array of flat caps, waistcoats and neckerchiefs, evocations of Victorians.

Mathematics Challenge

Earlier this week four of our strongest mathematicians ventured to Notting Hill Preparatory School to take part in an inter Notting Hill Schools Number Challenge.

A Bumper Harvest

Yesterday’s assembly was sublime. Year 2 performed to a packed hall. Their parred-back staging of ‘The Little Red Hen’ was disarming and hugely well received.

Reading on the Tube

Never shy in finding opportunities to read, Y6 scholars passed the time on the tube (travelling to a gallery) immersing themselves in high quality newspapers and favourite books.

Morocco Appeal

There was a non-uniform day on Friday 15th September to raise money for the emergency Morocco earthquake appeal to support the communities most affected by the disaster (ActionAid UK.)

Nothing Gold Can Stay

Assiduous, tenacious and unerringly loyal to everything Thomas Jones represents, Year 6 have shone. Last week's performances of Peter Pan were superlative. All children shone and wondered audiences from the youngest Nursery child to the Royal Borough's Head of Education. Bittersweet tears were shed.

Year 2 Science Trip

Year 2 recently visited the incredible Look Out Centre at Hyde Park for a day jam-packed with hands on activities – from meadow sweeping, to bird watching, log rolling and pond dipping.
