The year group are looking at festivals and celebrations as their topic this term and started off the topic by looking at the importance of Remembrance Day. “I really enjoyed cutting out the flower template,” said Ryan Graham from 3H. “I liked sticking all the petals together – it was fun!” said Katie Badley. The poppies will be on display in Year 3 on the Topic display boards.
  2. 2. News team Molly Glinn, Hannah Tear, Megan Powderly, Jamie Russell, Katy Watkinson, Taylor McKenzie & Finn Cromack Following the Remembrance Day Assembly when we observed a two minute silence, some children in Year 4 wrote poems about what they might have heard had they listened REALLY, REALLY hard! Year 4 Poems Silence Listens It was so quiet that I heard a spider spinning a new shiny web. It was so quiet that I heard a little mouse scuttling along the floor. It was so quiet that I heard my brain buzzing as I worked out a sum. It was so quiet that I heard my sister tapping my PSP. It was so quiet that I heard an ant carrying bits of apple into its nest. It was so quiet that I heard my bike tyre letting out air. Ben Drummond Silence Listens It was so quiet that I heard the aeroplane high up in the blue sky. It was so quiet that I heard my baby hamster sniffing the air. It was so quiet that I heard the butter bubbling on my toast. It was so quiet that I heard a grasshopper scratching its leg. It was so quiet that I heard the snowflakes falling from the sky. It was so quiet that I heard the brown branches waving in the breeze. It was so quiet that I heard my neighbour whispering to his wife. Natasha Polansky Silence Listens It was so quiet that I heard a butterfly rising from a cocoon. It was so quiet that I heard a rainbow appearing in the sky. It was so quiet that I heard a golf ball rolling to the hole. It was so quiet that I heard a coin flip up into the air. It was so quiet that I heard a balloon floating in the sky. It was so quiet that I heard a fox tip-toeing across the grass. Poppy Rimmer Silence Listens It was so quiet that I heard the magical waterfall crying in the air. It was so quiet that I heard the flowers whispering silently. It was so quiet that I heard my heart pounding like thunder. It was so quiet that I heard my neighbour thinking. It was so quiet that I heard my lips cracking. It was so quiet that I heard the fly’s footsteps on the window. Ollie Rimmer

  4. 4. News team Molly Glinn, Hannah Tear, Megan Powderly, Jamie Russell, Katy Watkinson, Taylor McKenzie & Finn Cromack Norwood 'A' Team Football Match Norwood 0 Our Lady of Lourdes 3 Team: Aaron Rimmer, Jaydon Lavelle, Matthew Vansprang-Rimmer, Luke Ashton, Lewis Hitchcock, Lucas Thaw, Jack Wallbank, Tom Langford, Ashley Gavan, Joe Edmunds, Tom Stewart. With the weather against us yet again, leading to a heavy pitch, Norwood were unable to get going to play their usual smooth, free-flowing football. OLOL managed the conditions better however, scoring two goals in the first third. Although Norwood battled hard they were unable to get through the OLOL back line. Throughout the game OLOL skilfully advanced but Norwood Goalkeeper, Aaron Rimmer pulled off some excellent saves keeping it at 2-0 until the last third. Finally, OLOL scored a third goal making the final score, 3-0 to Our Lady of Lourdes. A great effort nonetheless by Norwood. Man of the match: Aaron Rimmer Shinewaves Competition Time Last week’s competition was to design a Bullybusters poster. All entries have been forwarded to the area competition.

  5. 5. News team Molly Glinn, Hannah Tear, Megan Powderly, Jamie Russell, Katy Watkinson, Taylor McKenzie & Finn Cromack Guy Fawkes took time out of his extremely busy schedule, plotting to blow up King James I, to visit Year 6 children at Norwood. During his visit Guy explained why he and his fellow conspirators have taken to such drastic measures. He also explained what would happen to him, should his plot be foiled! Guy Fawkes also answered the children's questions about the gunpowder plot. Before returning to 1605 London to continue his preparations, Guy posed while the children sketched him. Guy Fawkes Communication It is really important to check your child’s book bag each night after school. Newsletters are sent home on a weekly basis and we do send other letters and communication as well. You might miss an invitation to an event that your child is taking part in. Staff are concerned at the amount of what appears to be unread information left in children’s book bags each day! Coming soon Getting to know our Governors Coats Please ensure that children have warm coats, gloves, hats etc to wear at break times as it can be very cold at this time of year.
  6. 6. News team Molly Glinn, Hannah Tear, Megan Powderly, Jamie Russell, Katy Watkinson, Taylor McKenzie & Finn Cromack Rotary in Great Britain and Ireland (RIBI) is working with The Eden Project, the International Flower Bulb Centre (IBC), the National Trust and Learning through Landscapes to plant purple crocus bulbs from the beginning of October so they will be in flower for Rotary Day – 23 February 2011. These Purple Flowers represent the colour of ink dabbed on a child’s little finger to indicate they have been immunised against polio. Rotary clubs across RIBI are currently contacting their local schools, residential homes, local councils and other community organisations to ask them to identify suitable sites which can then be planted with swathes of purple crocus bulbs in the autumn – as a reminder of the essential need to continue the fight to eradicate polio from our world. Keith Mitchell from Southport Rotary brought over 200 crocus bulbs to Norwood to allow us to take part in this project. We decided to plant them in the school woodland area. Years 1 and 3 enjoyed planting the bulbs during their Forest School lessons. We look forward to seeing the purple flowers in early Spring. Crocus Project
