  3. 3. Let’s Get Cooking On Saturday, 30th January, 2010, Norwood held its first Family Cookery event. Thirteen lucky families returned their slips quickly to be allocated a place. Sadly, the day was over subscribed and at least ten families were disappointed. Everyone turned up promptly for a 9.30 start and were amazed to find the hall transformed. Our ingredients table actually looked more like a Harvest festival display! Tables had been prepared with all manner of equipment including mixing bowls, scales, wooden spoons, baking tins and lots of other items. The big question on everyone’s lips was” What are we making?” This was soon answered with a demonstration of muffin making. Our families produced dozens of batches of different flavoured muffins-parmesan and chive, blueberry, raspberry and lemon. We all enjoyed tasting them at break time. Next, came the soups! Half of our families prepared vegetables for a hearty Winter Vegetable Soup whilst the others made a quick Minestrone. Our main courses were Cottage pie, Chicken and Leek Bake and for our vegetarians, Vegetable Bake. The children prepared lots of different fruit to make Fruit Kebabs for dessert. The adults prepared a delicious Chocolate Bread Pudding which was quite naughty but very nice! At the end of a tiring but very rewarding day, everyone gave the event a big thumbs up. Our evaluation sheets were also full of positive comments. The day took a lot of organisation and time and it would not have been possible without the help of Mr. Postlethwaite, Mrs. Chadwick, Mrs. Murray, Mrs. Coleman, Miss McCarthy, Miss Wainwright, Mrs. Bennet and Mr. Dumbell who gave up part or all of their Saturday to wash up and assist in the kitchen. Both myself and Mrs. Taylor were very pleased with the success of the event. It has inspired us to do it again in the near future! Pat McCarthy Norwood Crescent, Southport. PR9 7DU. Tel: 01704211960.

  4. 4. Up and Coming PTA Events Race Night-Friday 16th April Fashion Show-Thursday 20th May Summer Fair-Saturday 26th June Barn Dance and BBQ-Friday 9th July Year 6 Visitor On the 20th January Yr 6 received a very special visit from Father John Seddon from the Catholic Church. He came to talk to us about Catholic religion and the church’s origins. He shared his knowledge with us and told us many facts. For example, Jesus shared his last supper with his 12 disciples, two of these disciples were known as St Simon and St Peter. Also, Jerusalem was the first Catholic church and the word Jerusalem means “St James”. We thoroughly enjoyed Father John’s spectacular visit and we hope that he will continue to share his wisdom with others. by Charlotte Fitzgerald and Luke Dempster. Year 3 Forest School In Forest School 3k enjoyed playing 1,2,3 where are you? Which is another type of hide and seek. They also enjoyed toasting food, building dens out of logs and sticks, and playing in the schools enviroment. 3k have loved Treasure hunting because they got to share out the treasure that everyone had found (chocolate mini eggs!) by Jamie Russell Linaker B 0 - 5 Norwood B Squad-Aaron Rimmer- Alex Nevins- David Berry- Ben Mills- Jordan Scutt(captain)- Aaron Richards- Daniel Sherriff- Joseph Edmunds- Liam Campbell- Callum Roughley- Conor Baggaley. An all out excellent performance by Norwood, in their first game in over 4 months. However, it soon became clear that the break hadn't effected the team, when the captain Jordan Scutt fired home in the early stages of the match. You had to wait for the second period for more goals, but believe me, it was worth waiting. David Berry scored a fantastic goal in the early stages of the period, running past 2 players and placing the ball home. Callum Roughley then scored 2 goals in quick succession, putting real daylight between the two teams. There was still more to come though, when hard man Joseph Edmunds fired the fifth and final goal of the game sealing it for Norwood. There was still more work to do though as Linaker pushed for a miracle. It was all too late, as Norwood held on for their first clean sheet of the season. Hopefully, there are still big things to come for Norwood this season. Man of the Match: Conor Baggaley for his solid defending and Callum Roughley for his 2 goals.
