Welcome to our Website

Dear Parents, Carers and Children,

Welcome to Toner Avenue Primary School an exciting place to learn and discover.  We strive to provide the very best education for all of our pupils, what ever their needs or abilities.  By ensuring that we have the most committed, resourceful and enthusiastic team of staff, we offer a vibrant and rich curriculum.

There have been many changes at Toner Avenue recently, and there are more exciting changes in the future.  This is a school with huge potential, amazing children and supportive parents.

I hope that you enjoy the school website which we will endeavour to keep regularly updated.

Many thanks for visiting and your continued support.

World Book Day

On Thursday 1st March we will be celebrating world Book Day at Toner Avenue!  During the day we will be enjoying stories and talking about our favourite books.

Children are welcome to come along dressed as their favourite book characters or simply in non-uniform if they prefer.  We ask for a donation of £1 for the day with all money raised going towards buying new books for the school.

We will also be holding a book swap.  If your children have any books that they no longer need, have grown out of, or have finished with, they can bring the book into school and exchange it for a new one donated by another child.  Hopefully everyone will go home on Thursday with something new to read.

Reading is one of the most important things that a child can do at home and talking about their books has been proven to have a positive impact on their reading skills and comprehension, as well as encouraging a love for reading.

Thank you for your support.

M. Arthur

THURSTON UPDATES

Hello everyone, especially Y6 parents!

The Bus back from Thurston is due to pick the children up at 11.00 this morning.  They have all had a wonderful time and made some new friends with the children from St Bede’s!

I won’t be able to update the website this afternoon so please keep up to date with times on our Twitter feed.

If you are on Twitter, please follow our school Twitter page @Toner_Tweets

Miss Dobbin is updating me as often as she can, so any news I receive, I will put on there.

The children have been having loads of fun in the snow…check out our Twitter page for the photos!

Year 1 Rocket Building!

Today, as part of our topic on the explorer Neil Armstrong, Year 1 invited their grown ups into school to build their very own rockets.

We were very impressed with all of the children’s creations and would like to say a HUGE thank you to all of the mams, dads, grandmas, grandads, aunties, uncles, carers  and older siblings who came along to help.

The Year 1s had a great afternoon building their rockets!

We would also like to say well done to our winners… Robbie, Sadie, Olivia and Alfie! It was a hard choice and every rocket could have been a winner!

Thurston.

Firstly apologies for not getting this post up yesterday, we had some quite major internet problems and I was unable to update the website.

The children arrived safely and enjoyed their first afternoon!  Miss Dobbin has called again this morning and has reported that although snowy and cold, everyone is having a great time and the children from Toner and St Bede’s are all getting on very well and working together brilliantly!
