Celebrating athleticism, teamwork, and the spirit of competition, Norton Junior School girls recently took centre stage at the Key Stage 2 football tournament held at Campsmount Academy. The event not only showcased the girls’ skill on the field but also emphasised the importance of camaraderie and self-expression in a team setting. Well done to the girls and a shoutout to Mrs Blunt and Miss Gill for accompanying the team!
A team of year 5 and 6 net ballers made the trip to Campsmount for the Leger Sport Y5/6 tournament this week. Despite the cold and wintery conditions, the team performed well and showed determination and teamwork throughout the competition. Well done, guys!
Last week we officially kicked off our chance to dance program in school. This year we will be focusing on Alice In Wonderland and so started by taking a deeper look into some of the characters. We used our imaginations to pull best crazy Mad Hatter faces, hurry around like the White Rabbit, scare the people of wonderland like the Queen of Hearts and twirled and explored like Alice. We can’t wait to fall further down the rabbit hole as we continue to explore this ballet!
A team of 11 year 3/4s travelled up to Campsmount Academy on Wednesday for another Leger tournament – this time, the weather was typically British. However dense the clouds and wet the ground, this did not darken the boys’ spirits.
The team played extremely well given the conditions and worked as a team to develop strategies against their opposition. Shout outs to Jacob and John as they demonstrated great leadership on the pitch, orchestrating the team’s attacks and defence as well as encouraging their team mates to do well! Another shout out to Spencer for his compassion towards the other team. Soaked through from the start and freezing, the team played well and battled on to the end. Well done, team!
This afternoon, 6CC explored the formation of human settlements. The children organised their settlements depending on the physical features of the environment, such as mountains, forests and rivers to name a few. The children then justified their decisions on where they placed key features to the group. Great class discussion and reasoning!
JUMP! JUMP! SHOOT!
In P.E. this week, the children incorporated the fundamental skill of jumping into the skill of shooting in handball. Aiming to gain an advantage when shooting the ball, the children tried exceptionally hard to practice the jump shot before taking the new skill into the game. Extra points were on offer for those who jumped, shot and landed in the semi-circle, as well as for making an effort to recover the ball when possession was lost. Awesome effort and a special mention to Evelyn for performance in the mini-game!
