Children In Need

They certainly are and what a way to celebrate...

A wide range of activities took place today which ended in a school Disco. Some incredibly suspect dance moves were on display but one thing is for sure, a good time was had by all - teachers included it would appear... Many thanks to the children for organising the various activities and indeed raising all the money for charity. Totals will be published in the school newsletter letter so watch out for it.

Free Standing Structures

Sometimes, standing up for yourself is not just important, its crucial...

The children were investigating the most effective free standing structures. They considered what they could learn from existing constructions such as bridges and towers but also from nature. They decided to hold a competition to see who could construct the tallest 'Free Standing' structure within one lesson. The outline for the task was set and materials gathered... the most successful models would be evaluated at the end...

Proof That Music Is Really Good For You...

Finally, here is the proof that Mr Wilkinson really can get a tune out of anything...

During class this week, 5MW decided to explore the potential of... guess what? Vegetables as musical instruments... That's right, you heard it first here... Vegetable Instruments! The children considered how instruments make sounds through resonance chambers and other elements that create vibrations, displacing the air and creating sound waves which travel much like a ping pong ball around a room or chamber... we are looking forward to hearing/seeing the results of this work...

Another Successful Fundraiser

Yet again, the children of NJS showed just how amazing they are by thinking of others before themselves... Love was in the air and children gazed longingly across the busy room at something delicious, something irresistible, something that called to their very soul... That's right, cakes and buns... Well done to all who took part from the organisers to the bakers and of course those who purchased the merchandise and ate it, such a difficult job that last part!!!

Young Voices 2015

On Tuesday 20th January Norton junior School rocked Sheffield Arena. All the children had a fantastic time and sang their little hearts out. All those weeks of practicing paid off and everyone felt the children were a credit to themselves and the school.
