Fieldwork at Doncaster Museum and Art Gallery

This week Year 1 visited the Doncaster Museum and Gallery to learn all about the history of Doncaster as part of our Summer term expedition ‘Diverse Doncaster: Where do we belong?’.

In the morning we took part in a workshop all about Doncaster through different time periods and we explored the museum and gallery in the afternoon.

Student Led Conferences

Today we held our first ever Student Led Conferences – the children did a fantastic job sharing their learning and beautiful work, speaking about what they are proud of and what they need to work on to get even better.

It was brilliant to see the children articulating their learning so well with the help of their teachers.

Great job everyone!

Investigating measures

We’ve been busy exploring measures in Class 3, firstly comparing, ordering and measuring heights and lengths. Our challenge was to find two people the same height.

We then we moved on to weighing and enjoyed lots of practical maths lessons to get us ready for some challenging problem solving!

Tranquil Tuesday

It was lovely to wander around our school this morning and see all of the fantastic things happening in our crew sessions – we had children reflecting on their howls, sharing stories and talking about their feelings using our zones of regulation. What a way to start the day!

Better World Day 2022

We will be celebrating Better World Day on Thursday 5th May (a day early). We are asking children to come into school wearing something blue or yellow. We are asking for voluntary contributions of 50p to raise money to send funds directly into Ukraine to support those in need. We will be talking about Better World Day in crew this week too.

Thank you all for your support,

Being active in Class 3

In crew this week we have been discussing the importance of keeping active and the effect it has on our well being. We thought about some of the activities we could do that would be fun, got moving on the playground and finally made pledges to take part in a range of fun and healthy activities this week.

We have also had great fun in P.E starting our new cheerleading unit and learning all the different shapes we will be able to put into our dances. Some of us are working extra hard to prepare for a competition at Campsmount later this term.

Amazing Aerial Photography

Yesterday we were very lucky to be visited by Geoff and his drone. He talked to the children about aerial photography and different ways we can take photos. We then went outside and watched Geoff fly his drone 120 meters up in the air! He took some amazing photos of school and the surrounding areas.

Please keep this date in your diary…

Thursday 21st April (Year 2 -9.00-9.30) 

Friday 22nd April (Year 1 – 9.00 – 9.30) 

In our next expedition we are looking in detail at Norton and our local area, including the history of our school and community. We would like to invite family members to an informal coffee morning where you can have a drink and a bun while sharing your experiences of how Norton and our school  have  changed over the years. If you have experience of living in a contrasting area too then it would be great for the children to be able to compare. Even better, if you have old photographs to share then we would love to see them.

Thank you

Getting ready for our learning with the daily mile

It was so lovely to complete our daily mile in the sunshine today. It woke us up after lunch and helped us to feel alert and ready for maths.
