Last week, year 5 had an awesome visit from Sam’s Safari who brought a vast assortment of rainforest animals for us to discover. The children understood the impact of deforestation on the habitats of animals ranging from leave cutters to millipedes and geckos. What a wonderful experience!
This week saw 5HJ take part in the TTRS battle England Rocks in aid of maths week. After 3 days of hard work, we were delighted to discover that 5HJ placed 192nd out of over 30,034 classes across the country. What an achievement! 🏆
Halloween crafts this week involved using hand prints to make a whole selection of ghosts, ghouls, pumpkins and devils.
Today, we spend or Flexible Friday crew session having Halloween fun. Check out our spooky mummies and awesome Jack O’Lanterns. After half term, Mr Carr will decide which Jack O’Lantern design is worthy of being carved on the gigantic pumpkin which was donated to school by a child in Y3!!
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.
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.
This week in our expedition lessons, year 3 have been looking at how earthquakes are formed, in particular tectonic plates. The children used a jigsaw of the world to identify the 7 major plates. Great jobs guys!
Yesterday, year 3 erupted the wonderful volcanoes that were made in hook week. To make the volcanoes we screwed up newspaper to build the shape and then used papier mache to cover it with layers of newspaper and paper towels. Finally, we pained the and Miss Gate used vinegar and baking powder to create the eruption! What a brilliant afternoon!
Yesterday, LKS2 embarked on an exciting field trip to Magna Science Adventure Centre where we had an amazing experience for our pupils building background knowledge for our new expedition – Earth Shattering Events. During the day we explored the elements of earth, wind, fire and water with a highlight of watching the fire tornado. All children were an asset to our school and behaved perfectly.🔥🌎💦💨
