On 7 May 1994, Norway's most famous painting, "The Scream" by Edvard Munch (pronounced MOONK), was recovered almost three months after it was stolen from a museum in Oslo. Munch was an Expressionist, an artist who expresses strong feelings through colours and bold brush-strokes in his paintings.

  3. 3. Safety in School As the weather is getting warmer and the sunshine is here, we would like to inform you of the school's policy on sun safety/sun cream. - Children will be allowed to bring in sunscreen on a daily basis. It must be roll on and have an SPF of 30+ as recommended by Cancer Research. This must be labelled with your child's name and class. - We recommend that children wear sun hats, ideally broad brimmed or legionnaire style which cover the face, ears and neck. - Children will be allowed to wear sunglasses during outdoor sessions but these must be plastic and meet with UV standards. - Children will be allowed to wear loose and light protective jackets/clothing to protect uncovered parts of their body. - Children may bring in lip sunscreen with a high SPF and clearly labelled. - Children are not allowed to share sunscreen or lip sunscreen. - As a school we cannot provide sunscreen for children who have forgotten to bring in their own in. - Children will be expected to apply their own sunscreen. Staff will NOT apply a child's sunscreen, although younger children may be supervised. - Children should bring sunscreen for use on school trips. Time to Talk Reporters Kane Baggaley, Georgia Lonsdale, Annie McCoid and Joe Rimmer were on hand this week to interview Mrs. Brown, the second of our four cleaners.

What would you like to see invented to make your job easier? A. A motorised hoover, one that you could sit on. Q. How long have you worked at Norwood? A. I have worked here for 14yrs now. Q. What do you like to do in your spare time? A. I like to go walking with friends. Q. Where else have you worked? A. I worked in Woolworths for 20yrs. Q.

  4. 4. Netball News The C Netball Team had a home match against St Philips. Despite them scoring the first goal and the poor weather, we beat them 11-2. A great win! Time to Talk We recently held another of our Time to Talk sessions where parents were invited to meet informally with Mr. Dumbell, Mrs Jackie Hilton (the Chair of Governors) and Kim Taylor (Parent Support Advisor) to discuss issues and thoughts of their own choice. This is always a good opportunity for parents to let us know as a school what we are doing well as well as identifying things we could look at developing. The main topics discussed gave parents the opportunity to see what goes on during ‘Star of the Week’ assemblies on a Friday, running a Forest School session for parents and children, the quality of the sound in the Hall and information sessions for Parents about e-safety. Our next ‘Time to Talk’ session will be held during an afternoon in order to give an opportunity for parents to attend, meet with us informally and then collect their children. We will look forward to seeing you then. STAR TREKK IV Where no man has gone before Members of staff are taking part in the ‘Ladies Night Walk’ (7 miles) on Friday 14th May to raise money for Queenscourt Hospice. If you would like to make a donation please send it in an envelope for the attention of Mrs Gregson in the school office. For more information call 01704 544645 or email:fundraising@queenscourt.org.uk Rounders Competition Last week, 8 children from Year 4, went to Meols Cop High School to take part in a rounders competition. They played a total of three games and won two out of the three. Congratulations was in order, because when the points were counted, Norwood came in second place! Well done to all concerned. Handy Tips to Help Your Child After a very busy day in school, it is easy for any child to forget where they should go at 3.15 pm and who will be picking them up. To encourage your child’s independence and develop their life skills try to keep a little notebook in their book bag and write down for them these daily arrangements and encourage them to refer to the book. Whilst this is helping your child to be able to help them themselves, this would also serve as a reminder for the class teacher. After all, as adults we have developed strategies for coping with our busy schedules by keeping reminders and making lists. If your child has this bit of reassurance it will build their confidence and lead to a positive outcome which will benefit family life in the long term. For children in the Infant Department, please write this information in a short note and encourage your child to give it to the class teacher at the beginning of the day. Norwood Crescent, Southport.
