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, 5HJ have begun to create our rainforest animal soft toys. We started by practicing a variety of different stitches and then used our paper templates to create the front. The focus and determination in learning a new still has been amazing! We are so excited to see the final outcomes.
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.
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.
After months of discussion and deliberation, NJS is pleased to announce the creation of its brand new fire-pit! Thanks to the diligence and hard work of our own Mrs Blunt, Norton Junior’s fire pit is complete with log stools and a fire ring, ready for exciting crew and activity sessions to come. We can already taste the smores!
As a break from the intensive learning the children have worked so hard on this week, we made some spring bunting to decorate the corridors and classroom.
This week saw us making our very own Christmas decorations courtesy of XP Outdoors. All children engaged in this festive task and created a découpage wooden cookie slice by cutting characters from napkins and using sealer to create the finished look. How amazing do they look!
Over the last two weeks 3LG have put their DIY socks on and created some beautiful wood cookie christmas decorations. They have been using a range of materials including napkins, mod podge, plastic bags and, of course, glitter to create dazzling decorations. The children have worked gently and precisely, making sure not to rip the extremely thin napkin images.
We think the decorations are fab and will look amazing hung among twinkling lights on their Christmas trees.
