Week 17: 13th July-17th July

Woah. This is your final week in primary school…mixed emotions??? Us too! Please keep in touch, keep safe and keep sending us things you do- even over summer- to the thornhillsupport address.

Your hoodies and year books are whizzing their way through the printers so keep an eye out for updates about these.

Please come and see us at 1.30pm on Tuesday 14th July to collect your reports, exercise books and any random bits we found in your lockers! Please, in return, bring back any reading books or musical instruments you have at home.

We hope that we can arrange something for you at some point for a proper leavers’ service and send off, but it all depends on circumstances- we’ll let you know when we do!

The final TTRockstars battle of the year has been set up… let the battle commence!! (Until Friday 17th, 5pm…)
