Welcome to the Thoresby Class Page! Please have a look at what we have been doing in class. You will also find interesting links and information on important dates. Thank you for looking and come again soon
We do PE on a TUESDAY.
Please make sure you come in your PE kit, including a warm top.
On THURSDAYS, we work with the Adventure Service, which means being outdoors in all weathers. Please come to school in comfortable trousers such as jogging bottoms (not jeans) and layers, waterproof coat and waterproof shoes. Don't forget to bring your school uniform including shoes to change into afterwards, because you may well get wet / dirty during the morning!

Get Ahead Magazine
This is a new magazine by and for disabled people with lots of useful information - they are also looking for contributors! :)
Week beginning 1.2.21
Over the past few weeks, we have raided our recycling bins to create some useful new treasures. Can you tell what they are going to be yet?
Whether at school or at home, independent living skills are always useful. Today, we thought about how to make tea (or hot chocolate) and toast safely and about the order in which things need to be done. Then we had a go, of course, and enjoyed the fruits of our labour.
Week beginning 18.1.21
This week, we talked about some of the worries we have sometimes and how they can interfere with us enjoying life as we should. Together, we thought of a few things we can do to help us all worry a little less. We made dream catchers to catch any bad dreams so we can all have a good night's sleep.
Week beginning 14.12.20

On Mental Health Awareness Day, we experienced a range of things which can help us relax and reduce anxiety: yoga, doodling, mindfulness exercises, music, singing and dancing. Then we set ourselves some challenges to help us develop a growth mindset and to never stop trying and always do our best.
Week beginning 21.9.20
Working with the Adventure Service, Thoresby students collected natural materials and then designed and made these fabulous sculptures, learning how to use saws and glue guns safely along the way.
Week beginning 7.9.20
As a way of getting us started on thinking about our enterprise project, we made our own shampoo today. It contained egg and vinegar, and most students were a bit sceptical...
