Thank you to everyone who helped make this the huge success it was. Would you live in a dark, damp place?Year 4 have been studying habitats. In groups they investigated which habitat a woodlouse would prefer. To make it a fair test they gave the woodlice a choice between, dry/light, dry/dark, damp/light and damp/dark conditions. They used a container to set up the four conditions and released the previously captured woodlice into the centre. After five minutes, they analysed the results. Overall the findings were that the woodlice did prefer dark, damp places. Great fun was had by all and you will be relieved to hear that no woodlice died as a result of this experiment!

As this is a popular club Mrs Bennet is having to ask staff in the office each week to try and contact a number of parents whose children just havent turned up. If your child does not want to go at anytime you must write a note to Mrs Bennet to let her know otherwise, we will assume your child is missing and activate our Missing Child Policy, after all it is good manners to let us know.

  6. 6. B Team Football Norwood B 1 St. Patricks B 1Two goals in the last minute of this thrilling match meant that the Year 6 part of the B team finished their season witha well deserved draw. An exciting game saw chances at each end for the full game and that it stayed goal less until the45th minute was down to superb defending from Joe Telford in particular and excellent goalkeeping from Josh Watkins. Ashleigh Thomass dribbling was eye-catching and excited the crowd, while Harry ODriscoll went close a number of times before finally scoring from the penalty spot after he was pushed in the box in the final minute. St. Patricks deserved their equaliser but that it came with virtually the last kick of the game was disappointing. Nevertheless this was a wonderful end to the season for the Y6 children, who played the match with energy, enthusiasm and a great sporting attitude. Star players: Harry ODriscoll and Ashleigh Thomas Team: Josh Watkins, Sam Peet, Leon Booth, Daniel Monahan, Darcy Iveson-Berkeley (capt.), Joe Davenport, Jake Hawkings, Joe Telford, Gabriel Angay, Harry ODriscoll, Liam Hall, Ashleigh Thomas, Errin Telford and Emily Telford. Churchtown B 2 Norwood B 0 How the Y5 team managed not to score in this game is still a mystery as the frame of the goal and the heroics of the Churchtown goalkeeper kept out all our attempts on goal and left the Norwood supporters in disbelief, especially asChurchtowns goals came from two of their few attacks. Jaime Kelly defended well again, as did Conner Peters with hisexcellent heading. Ryan and Joes long throws kept the Churchtown defence busy, but it was Owen Taylor who stole the show with his wonderful passing and excellent teamwork. Sometimes it is not meant to be. Man of the Match: Owen Taylor Team: Luke Ashton, Jaime Kelly (capt.), Brandon Robson, Conner Peters, Ryan Taylor-Reid, Liam Healey, Kane Baggaley, Joe Rimmer, Owen Taylor, Tom Lawson and Tyler Birch.
