Happy Easter from 3LG

After working hard all term, Mrs Jenkins and thought the children deserved to end the spring term with a treat day. We started the day with some Easter crafts, making Easter wreaths.

We continued our treat day with some baking. We all made Easter nests topped with chocolate bunnies, jelly carrots, mini eggs and fluffy chicks.

To finish the day off we had very special visit from the Easter Bunny which resulted in an easter egg hunt around school where every child got to find their own Cadburys Creme Egg.

A massive thank you to all parents and carers for your amazing support during the spring term. Have a lovely Easter break and see you in the summer term!

Campsmount Come Dancing 💫💫

I couldn’t have been prouder of the children in Yr 4, 5 & 6 who represented Norton Junior School in the Campsmount Come Dancing show. The theme for the show was different genres of dance and our girls danced jazz. Check out the amazing tricks and lifts. Huge thanks to Mrs Gracey who sorted all the costumes.

A Spring Celebration

A big well done to all year three children this week who absoluetly blew us away with their amazing Celebration of Learning. The children showcased their fabulous learning throughout our expedition The Power Of Life: What Fuels Us? We have loved becoming scientists throughout this expedition and investigating electricity and requirements for life.

Every child in year three worked extremely hard to put on the best celebration possible. From learning lines and practicing singing the song, the children have spent hours preparing to showcase the best versions of themselves. The children are extremely proud of the work they have produced throughout the spring term and this shone through in their dedication to the celebration.

A big thank you to all parents/carers that came out to watch the celebration and joined us in grappling with circuits back in the classroom.

Signing off the term with our celebration of learning.

Y4 finished our expedition in style with a celebration of learning to share their story of this term’s work. Firstly, the children delivered an overview of each case study in the school hall before venturing back to class to engage in some science experiments and celebrate the work in their books. What a fantastic way to punctuate an amazing term with our amazing children. Have a great Easter everyone.

Why is sleep important? 🛌😴

On Thursday morning, the school nursing team visited years 5/6 to talk to the children about the importance of sleep. The children learned about the amount of sleep they should be getting 9-11 hours per night. 

The team also discussed how a regular team could benefit children in their efforts to get to sleep at a reasonable time each night. Refraining from using electronic devices an hour before bed (a suitable cut off time) was also mentioned as a solution to help the brain prepare for sleep. 

Reading in bed, listening to calming music, drawing and colouring were highlighted as activities children can use to reduce cognitive activity in the brain before bed.

Friday Football Festival

We were bathed in sunshine (albeit temporarily) during this afternoon’s Inter-School Trust Football Competition. As always, the children were ace! Have a great weekend everyone 😊
