On Friday, we were visited by Dawn Wood of Row Aurora - Conquering Oceans for the planet, who came to speak to our school about Plastic Pollution. Row Aurora's mission is to raise awareness about the problem of plastics polluting the world’s oceans and to encourage others to reduce and recycle their single use plastics.
Dawn undertook the massive task of rowing 3000 miles across the Atlantic Ocean last year, solo and unsupported, joining just 6 other women who have ever done this. She is now raising money for the Marine Conservation Society.
If you'd like to support Dawn, you can visit her Just Giving page www.justgiving.com/fundraising/rowaurora or find out more on the website: rowaurora.co.uk/mission/

7 pupils from our Lower School have won the “Porl-E” competition ran by the NHS last year. Pupils designed entries for the competition to share their ideas about how to stay healthy and prevent the spread of germs in the Winter. There’s nothing like a little competition to help get an important message across and we were so thrilled with the quality of work.
Our 7 winners work will be featured in a digital storybook produced by the NHS and shared across South East Essex later this year – we will share a link as soon as it’s published. Well done everyone! ... See MoreSee Less
Well done girls
Since the start of this term, our Forest School sessions are now being delivered to ALL age groups in Lower School as part of our core curriculum 🌳🌳🌳
It's fair to say our Year 6s loved their first session and can't wait to get out there again this week!
Outdoor learning experiences such as this have been proven to contribute positively to personal, social and communication skills, physical and mental health, spiritual and aesthetic awareness, and children's ability to exert control, manage risks, make decisions, problem solve and work as a team.
We have 4 accredited Forest School practitioners within our school, and the sessions take place in our very own Forest area within the school grounds. ... See MoreSee Less
Yesterday, team tennis players of the Upper School were visited by coaches from the Rafa Nadal Academy Tennis Academy in Mallorca. Students were selected for this fantastic opportunity as a reflection of their commitment to tennis and representing the school teams in the summer competitions.
The coaches from the academy ran a 2 hour session in the Seaglass that consisted of drills and games for students to take part. Coaches from the academy Dominic and Seb said "We were very impressed by the level of tennis here at Thorpe Hall. It was a pleasure to be involved today and hope that they continue to work hard and wish them luck for the summer matches"
Students then watched a short video from Rafa Nadal about the academy and the training facilities in his home town in Mallorca.
We would also like to thank our friends at Travel Places for including us in this fantastic event. ... See MoreSee Less

My boys loved it. Thank you Thorpe Hall for the opportunity.x 🎾
That sounds wonderful.
Year 2 had a fabulous morning with paleontologist Graham last week, exploring his incredible collection of fossils and scale dinosaur models, as well as hearing about all his incredible adventures and fossil finds - some of which are on display in London museums. They got to hold a fossilised dinosaur egg with the baby still inside it (we even saw the scan!), explored the dinosaur models and sketched them, and at the end they were lucky enough to meet Mary Anning - one of the greatest fossil hunters to ever live - and hear her story 🦖🦕 ...
