  5. 5. Planting at Holy Trinity School Charity Cake Sale The School Council would like to say a very big thank you to the children in Years 3 & 4 for their wonderful cakes. It was a very successful sale and we raised a magnificent £101 towardsSian & Harry from the School Council, recently went to Holy Trinity School to the schools charity, Cancer help with the planting of shrubs & trees in their school grounds. Norwood Research. School Council is part of the Sefton Learning Partnership & has now forged close links with other School Councils. Norwood’s Next Big Thing! Enterprise ProjectHas your child got a flair for business? Do they possess the gift of the gab? Would they be able to sell ice to the Eskimos? Well if the answer is yes, we have the showcase for them! During the fortnight in June, Monday 13th June – Friday 24th June, your child will be involved in an Enterprise Project named ‘Norwood’s Next Big Thing!’ This event will involve problem solving skills, communication and creativity. The children will learn how to pitch, what a product is and how to be persuasive! Each class is to be given an amount of money and their job is to make a product that can be sold for a profit. Classes will be making the exact same product, but will be competing against each other to see who can raise the most funds.All money raised will be going towards our Arts Festival beginning the 4th July, whereby all family members are welcome to visit the school on the Sale Day (23rd June), to not only go to their child’s class, but to go around the whole schoolcommenting on each classes persuasive selling skills, the quality of product and the simple enjoyment factor. Like all good sales people (and from many an Apprentice program – bad sales people!), the school fully appreciates that no sales may be made, but we would still value your comments, enthusiasm and involvement!More information will follow nearer the time, but if you have any comments or concerns then please feel free to email me, Miss A. McCarthy, on Many thanks for your continued support and commitment to make Norwood a wonderful school!Norwood Crescent, Southport. PR9 7DU. Tel: 01704 211960. Fax 01704 232712.

  6. 6. PTA Fashion Show Thank you for attending and thank you to all our fantastic models who brilliantly ‘strutted their stuff’ on the catwalk! We raised, approximately, a truly wonderful £200! KS2 Boys KS1 Girls KS2 Girls KS1 Boys Victoria Park Fun Run Last Thursday a group of Y5 and Y6 children attended the Victoria Park 1 mile run. All children completed the mile and Tom Langford (Y5) came 1st in just 3 seconds off the track record! Both the Y5 and Y6 boys came a fantastic 2nd place overall! Mrs Bentley and Mrs Harris would like to thank all the parents and staff who have attended the cross country events this year, your support has been fantastic. But most of all a HUGE well done to all the children who have attended cross country training sessions and events. You have been superb and lets hope next year is just as rewarding and as fun. YR 6 Topic WorkLast week, as part of their World War Two topic, Year Six had a fantastic time coding and decoding messages with Mr Jameslearning about the famous German Enigma machine. We also had our Make Do and Mend exhibition, where children broughtin their projects. It was wonderful to see so much variety, including sewing, gardening, knitting, cooking, baking and wood/ metal work. Such fantastic skills to teach Mrs Coleman! National Gymnastics Finals Last Sunday Tom (from 5B) competed at the National Gymnastics Finals in Birmingham. This involved all regions in the UK competing as teams and individuals. Tom was in the North West team representing his age group (an achievement in itself to be selected). The North West team came 4th overall after competing on seven pieces: rings; pommels; floor; high bar; parallel bars; vault and conditioning set. As an individual Tom came 9th overall for his age group out of the UK. We are very proud of him and his commitment to the sport. Well done Tom!Norwood Crescent, Southport. PR9 7DU. Tel: 01704 211960.
