Weekly Update

Last week was an opportunity to celebrate story-telling and books.  On Wednesday, Junior pupils and staff enjoyed the Norton Village Pantomine Puss in Boots.  It was a fun-filled performance and we are extremely grateful to the Norton Pantomine Committee for this special event for our schools.  Then on Thursday, we celebrated World Book Day.  I was so impressed with the fantastic and creative costumes and the opportunity to learn about great books old and new.

In classes last week, pupils in Acorn Class have been investigating whether bigger seeds take longer to germinate than smaller seeds (and how to make this a fair test).  Pupils in Oak Class, have been considering the human impact of the triangular slave trade using drama to explore the theme in more depth.

We look forward this Wednesday to parents’ afternoon/evening.  Please do make sure that you have an appointment to speak with your child’s classteacher.

This Friday it’s Comic Relief.  Children are invited to wear red clothes (non-school uniform) that day donation for Comic Relief.  Pupils are welcome to bring in a red nose from home that day.

Finally, please see the poster advertising the Easter Competitions; making bonnets and/or gardens.

Have a successful week.  Mr Caswell
