Welcome back Year 4!

Today, we welcomed back all of our children from what was hopefully a lovely Easter break! In Year 4, we will be spending this week immersing ourselves into our new expedition! This term’s expedition, is called ‘Earth Shattering Events’ with the Guiding Question of, ‘What Happens When Nature Strikes!?’. In this expedition, we will be learing all about the natural phenomena which is found on our planet. The children began this learning by creating posters which highlight some of the natural disasters and landforms that can strike upon our planet. Lovely start to the expedition!

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.

World Book Day!

It was lovely to celebrate World Book Day this year with many of the school population dressing up as one of their favourite book characters. Year 4 were transferred to 6CC and enjoyed the morning solving riddles and creating their own enchanted story maps with legends for points of interest. There was even enough time for a WBD Kahoot Quiz!

Circuit Champions

This expedition, years 3 and 4 have been learning all about circuits and today, it was the turn of 4TE to get their hands well into building their own circuits! As you can see, it looks like they’ve got the hang of it and were wired in!

Welcome Back Year 4!

Happy New Year year 4 and welcome back! It is absolutely delightful to see everybody again! Today, year 4 started looking at their new expedition, “The Power of Life” which will involve looking at sustainability and looking after our planet. To begin this learning, 4TE created some lovely posters all about how we can look after our planet! Great start guys!

NJS Globetrotters!

Over the past two weeks, teams from years 3&4 and 5&6 have ventured to Campsmount to take part in Leger Sport basketball competitions. As always, the events were well organised and highly competitive with our children representing the school proudly. Whilst both teams achieved third, their team spirit, resilience (against incredibly tall opponents) and togetherness was inspiring. Well done to both teams!
