  2. 2. Year One’s visit from a Police Carrier. We had a special visit from Eve and PC Martin before the holiday. They brought a real police carrier for Year One to see. The carrier was yellow and it had blue flashing lights on top. It had lots of seats in the back.At the front there was a camera so if cars were far away they can see the license plate.They brought shields that protect themselves when they are doing their jobs. If anyone is naughty they have special handcuffs. If they move their hands they get tighter and tighter. We saw a big cage in the back of the carrier and got locked inside. It was great fun! Thank you Eve and PC Martin. By Amy Farquharson and Holly Watkins Year One’s Visit to the Fire Station We walked all the way into town to visit the fire station. We met a fireman called Barry who showed us around the station. He showed us a fire engine. On the wall we saw an axe. We went into a dark room and used a special camera to see what was cold and what was warm. Before we left everyone had a turn at spraying the hose! We had a good time at the fire station.

  5. 5. Giant Walking BusAt 10am on Wednesday 15th June 2011 more than 100,000 kids will march for road safety from their school gates in theannual Giant Walking Bus! This brilliant event is part of Brakes’ ‘Kids Say Slow Down’ campaign and raises awareness of the dangers of traffic especially around Schools. Every year Brake tries to beat their own world record for the biggest walking bus and this year Norwood are taking part too! This giant march for a giant reason: to say no to speeding drivers, and yes to walking! The UK has one of the worstdeath rates in Europe of children killed on foot, most on their way to or from school. Half of the children in the U.K are driven to school, increasing pollution and danger.So on Wednesday 15th June 2011 please ensure that your child has a waterproof coat with them as at 10 a.m we will all be taking part in the Giant Walking Bus to help raise awareness of the importance of road safety. If any parents are interested in taking part in this event and are free to help from 9:45 a.m on Wednesday 15th June 2011, please contact the office as soon as possible. Your help will be much appreciated! Arts Festival T-Shirts Our first delivery of T-Shirts has been delivered and they look fantastic! Hope you remembered to order yours. (You may just be able to get a last Open to all ages from 7-99 years minute order in if you are very quick!) ATTENDANCE UPDATE Going into our final half term of the year, we have 41 children on target to achieve the special 100% attendance badge. This is really exciting for them all, but remember at the end of the term, there will still be certificates for those children who have achieved over 95% attendance since Easter. Theres so much to look forward to this half term! Norwood Crescent, Southport. PR9 7DU. Tel: 01704 211960. Fax 01704 232712. Head Teacher: Mr Lee Dumbell. Email:
  6. 6. Year 5 have been writing poems in the style of Christina Rosetties, ‘What is pink?’ What is pink? 1. What is pink? A pig is pink. Having a sweet afternoon drink. 2. What is red? Jam is red. As I spread it along my bread! 3. What is white? The snow is white. When I see it its such a delight. 4. What is blue? The sky is blue. With the clouds floating through 5. What is yellow? The sun is yellow. Bearing down on every fellow! 6. What is green? The grass is green. Standing next to the flowing stream. 7. What is gold? Treasure is gold. Who-ever has it is brave and bold. By Lauren Morgan and Libby Spencer School Health Nurse Hayley, our School Health Nurse is going on maternity leave and unfortunately the School Health Drop-in sessions will be suspended for the immediate future.
