Weekly Update

Well done to the school community for raising money and awareness for Children in Need and Odd Socks Day last week.  It is great to see Norton’s compassion, understanding and celebration of difference.

This week sees the launch of the Snow Globe Competition (see attached poster for more information) as well as the FONS film night on Friday.

In Classes, Willow have been comparing, talking and describing the machines of the past with those of the present including the first vacuum cleaners to the cordless versions we see today.  As well as discovering about food chains and habitats in Science, Birch Class have been rehearsing their lines and songs for the much anticipated production of the Twinkly Nativity.  Historians in Hazel Class have been finding out about the ‘Snettisham hoard’ which consists of expensive items produced by skilled workers in the Iron Age.  Meanwhile, Geographers in Rowan Class have been understanding the reasons for different time zones around the world.

Thank you to the parent forum which met last week on Thursday.  One of the points of feedback was about having a personalised answer phone message which we will aim to address this week with our phone provider.  We will let you know via email when it is sorted.

Next week, sees the second parent coffee morning of the year which will I will host in the school hall on Wednesday 29th November from 9.00-10.00.  Please do pop in for a coffee or tea, biscuit and a chat.

Wishing you all a good week,  Mr Caswell
