Last week Year One saw the arrival of our newest members of the year group! After 21 days of eagerly waiting with anticipation our chicks hatched out of their shells and said “Hello”. Our classroom has never been so full of eager visitors wanting to see our chicks. At first they were very weak and wet, and were cuddling together to keep warm. They soon dried out and became the fluffy chicks that we all know. They certainly are characters and have been loudly cheeping ever since. We hope to keep them for a few weeks before they return to Farmer Ted. Let’s hope they don’t learn to jump high enough to escape out of the brooder!
  2. 2. News team Molly Glinn, Hannah Tear, Megan Powderly, Jamie Russell, Katy Watkinson, Taylor McKenzie & Finn Cromack Howard Carter came to our class. He showed us how to be a archaeologist. Luke and Abbie had a go at brushing away the sand and showed us some artefacts. By Jamie Shaw On the 2nd November Year 2 went to the Liverpool Museum, first we got on the green double decker bus. Finally we got to the museum. Next we went to the 3rd floor and saw Egyptian things. Then we went down stairs and learnt about animals from Egypt. There were lots of crocodiles. By Matthew Bishop Year 2 Year 2 had a fantastic time when they held a jam party for their parents. They made their very own ‘Norwood jam’ and used it to bake lots of jammy treats including jam tarts, jammy dodgers, jam sandwiches and jammy meringues, they were very excited to share their food with their parents, as well as having a taste themselves! A big thank you to everyone who has helped to raise funds from our recent Line Dance event. The total raised so far is £1474.48. Could you please remind the children to collect and bring to school any remaining sponsor money. We have extended the date to 25th November as we appreciate that with half term some of the children may have forgotten or mislaid their forms. Please call to the office if you require any sponsor forms. Sponsored Line Dance Jam Party!

Well done to Norwood 'A' Team who despite the terrible weather conditions, managed to put up a brave fight against Premier League Champions, Farnborough Juniors. At no point did Norwood give up, either in the first third when they were losing 5-0, or in the second third when the score was 9-0. In fact, in the third third, Norwood managed two goals from Daniel Lawrence and Tom Mitchell to make the final score 14-2 to Farnborough. A valiant effort boys and a never say die attitude to be proud of! Well done. Man of the match: Aaron Rimmer for his tremendous saves throughout the match and for having the dirtiest kit at the end of the match! Reported by Mrs Rigby. Norwood 'A' Team Football Match Mrs Murray ‘loosing’ her head! Year 3 have designed & made these wonderful windmills as part of their topic work on Weather. The windmills were put to the test on a windy day. Some windmills had to be modified, but it was an exciting time when success was achieved by all!

  5. 5. Year 3 News team Molly Glinn, Hannah Tear, Megan Powderly, Jamie Russell, Katy Watkinson, Taylor McKenzie & Finn Cromack Children In Need 2010 This year Norwood would like to support this appeal in conjunction with Asda, by collecting unwanted clothes (bags provided) and by taking part in Bake the Bear (Pudsey Bear cutters provided). We are hoping you will bake some biscuits over the Children in Need weekend and bring them in to school, to sell in our Pudsey Cake Sale on Monday 22nd November. Pudsey Bear will be coming into school to say thank you for our efforts, collect clothing donations & to present a certificate to the school. With your help, we hope to make this a successful event! On Friday the 5th November, Year 6 had a rocket and firework themed day to commemorate Guy Fawkes failed attempt to blow up King James I in 1605. The children came dressed as either Guy Fawkes, King James or as a firework. The children watched demonstrations of fireworks and rockets made using household ingredients such as cola, baking soda, vinegar, mints, washing up liquid, lemonade bottles and empty film canisters. They even saw a water powered rocket fly high over the playground! Later on the children made their own rockets, which Mr Postlethwaite and Mr Hesketh launched with varying degrees of success! Before lunch the whole school appeared on the playground to watch a repeat of the earlier experiments. Year 6 Rockets! Before we set off on our trip of Victorian Southport, we put our sketch books and bin bags (to sit down on) in our rucksacks. We walked all the way from school to The Promenade and learnt that The Promenade Hospital was redeveloped in the late 1990's into expensive and exclusive apartments renamed Marine Gate Mansions, Steven Gerrard used to live there! Further on the journey, we reached Lord Street and sketched Wellington Terrace. After a while we stopped to have a biscuit (yum yum) and then we sketched another building, it was the Ribble Building a former railway station fronting one of the supermarkets in town. Eventually, we reached Christ Church and enjoyed our lunch and a sit down. Refreshed and rearing to go we sketched the Church and the nearby Band Stand. Next we studied the names on the War Memorial. Just as it started to rain we arrived at Southport Pier, the 2nd longest and oldest iron Pier in UK. We walked ALL of it's 1112m! Unfortunately the rain got heavier and we were drenched by the time we got back to school.
