Link Governor Sewing Project Y5

Starting in the Autumn Term Mr. Henfield and I discussed a project that all the pupils in his class could get involved in. As they had recently been looking at their class values, Mr Henfield felt it would be good to have a display that would represent the class and their values.
It was agreed that we would have a large circle with a 'gingerbread' type figure for each pupil that they could be responsible for and decorate.
The project involved using a range of Maths, DT and Art skills.

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.

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.

Gruffalo Club Week 4

The mission continues!

We now have a main path through the wooded area and have created some side paths and spaces that will be used as activity areas. You wouldn't believe the number of concrete slabs we've unearthed. I'm sure we can use them for something!

The Gruffalo team have been working extremely hard and are having fun creating the new areas. It's time for a break but after half term we'll be tackling the jungle that is the back of the wooded area...eeek!

Thanks Gruffaloers.

Enjoy half term.

Collage Creation

Provocation:
To create a collage based on our developing school allotment.

The whole project has been completed in partnership with 5RH’s link governor Rachel Morriss. The children have gained a lot from her passion and knowledge of collage and have enjoyed working with her since the autumn term.
