This week, 5HJ have been learning about human settlements. The children were given a range of different physical features and human features such as mountains, rivers, town and created their own settlement. Each group was able to explain why the key features were placed in their location, justifying their reasoning.
This week Yr 5 we’re practising dribbling skills in PE. The children used different parts of their foot to control the ball and enjoyed playing a range of games to develop these skills.
It was certainly a hot one but Year 5 had a wonderful time visiting The Yorkshire Wildlife Park yesterday! The children took part in an endangered animals workshop learning how and why animals are becoming endangered and what we can do to help. Our highlights were definitely spending time with the wallabies and polar bears.
During crew week, our guiding question was – How can crew be strengthened by acts of service to others? After holding crew sessions, Yr5 decided to litter pick whilst on our walk to Brockadale, visit The Laurels residential home to take gifts and spend time with residents as well as hold a bake sale to raise money for charity.
We are we’re blown away with the amount of donations received across Norton Campus and are excited to share that we raised a whopping £142.70. As a crew, we will decide where this money goes.
I couldn’t have been prouder of this wonderful class who were absolutely amazing during sports day today. It was a hot one but the effort they put in was tremendous! Everyone ran their hearts out and the sportsmanship was great to see, congratulating winners and cheering encouragement to those competing! 🏃♀️🏅🎽🏆
Sports day is coming ever closer so Yr 3 have been practising field events this week. Events include welly wanging, kneel throw, speed bounce and standing long jump.
What an absolutely beautiful few days we have had at school this week. Year 3 made the most of the sunshine by taking part in a maths and SPaG treasure hunt in the quad this morning in preparation for test week next week! 😀
This week, year 3 have begun their preparations for our upcoming sports day in July. Sprints, hurdles, relay and egg and spoon races to name but a few. Not only did all children give it their all in the warm condition but the amount of sportsmanship show was phenomenal! Bring on the competition Miss Gate! 😀
This week, year 3 have moved through case study 1 to investigate rocks. Children given a range of different rocks to look and sort using their properties. We were also lucky to have a huge box of fossils to look at thanks to Mrs Gill.
This week NJS have been taking part in the Walk With Wildlife Five Day Walking Challenge.
As part of this, we have been using our crew time to discuss how we get to school in a morning, whether this be walking, driving or cycling. This has tied in nicely with our Wise Wednesday crew sessions over the half term, in which we have been debating the benefits of exercise and getting active outside.
We have even taken our walking challenge one step further, walking a mile around our school filed every morning during our crew sessions. We have been clocking up the steps, averaging around 1800 steps!
