Our big surprise – our happy holiday message is now ready. Thank you to our amazing Newton Farm staff team for putting this together. A special huge thank you to Mrs Webber for coordinating it all and editing all our clips. Remember – the show is only postponed! Comment below and let us know what you think. Hakuna Matata!
Here are some great scavenger hunts that you could do with your children whilst at home. If you have older siblings why not get them involved too?
We’re all missing the boys and girls in the Nursery and would love to see any photos of the boys and girls on their scavenger hunts or anything else they are getting up to at home. Send your photos to Gw17nortonvictoria@glow.sch.uk.
Keep safe, and we hope to see you all back very soon.
During the last couple of weeks the pupils and staff have been getting to grips with using Google Classroom at home. It has been great to see so many people being engaged with this new way of working. When you start using something for the first time it can seem tricky but the more we use it the better all of our skills will become. In order to support pupils, parents and staff, we have created a help site on Google Sites. This will contain short training videos that will help everyone to become more familiar with the basics of Google Classroom. Use the link below to access the training site.
We have tried to make it easier to navigate our home learning overviews, useful websites and other information regarding home learning. We will continue to update these with appropriate information, but please remember that these are ideas and suggestions.
To access this information from a laptop/chromebook/tablet, click on the HOME LEARNING IDEAS tab at the very top of the blog page. You will then also have a drop down option for Literacy, Numeracy and Maths, Health and Wellbeing, Topic and Interdisciplinary and Live Lessons. From here you can choose the subject area/s you were looking for.
From a mobile phone, scroll to the very bottom of the blog page to USEFUL DOCUMENTS. Here you will find the same headings and will be able to access the suggested sites.
If you have any problems finding these – please leave a comment below and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.
The pupils in our school today have painted rainbows and displayed them in our windows so that they are visible from the street. If you are on your daily walk and happen to be passing the school, see if you can spot any! Let us know how many you can find!
The council’s childcare provision for key workers during the coronavirus issue is moving to a hub model operating from 20 primary schools. Parents/carers will need to apply for a place with an initial deadline of 9am Wed 25 March.More details here:
On Tuesday, Room 3 joined us for PE. However, we had another special teacher join us too .. Mrs Stewart! We had a quick warm up and then Mrs Stewart taught us two new Zumba dances. The first dance was called ‘Chocolatte’ and the other was a rock and roll routine. We tried our best to follow her instructions and copy the dance moves as best as we could. We were exhausted by the end of it but it was amazing. Thank you Mrs Stewart!
In light of the recent school closures, I just wanted to personally thank you for your help and support since August. The boys and girls in Room 4 have achieved so much and that is down to your commitment and hard work at home too.
Over the coming weeks, we will be using Google Classroom and the school blog as a communication tool so please keep an eye out for any updates. Over the next few days and weeks, please take some time to settle into this new routine and have a read at the documents sent home last week. These have some great learning tasks and ideas that you might wish to begin next week. We will work together to make sure that the boys and girls continue their learning journeys and I hope that you all keep safe and healthy over the coming weeks.
