Form 3's Ancient Egyptian Day

Form 3 held an Egyptian Day last week, where everyone dressed up in Egyptian costumes... even the teachers! Form 3 have been learning all about Ancient Egypt, so they had a good knowledge of the topic beforehand. They spent the day creating exciting things, such as 3D pyramids, Egyptian style jewellery, cartouches and pop-up mummies.

Form 5 visited Gladesmore IT Academy to learn about building and operating robots. Read Annabel and Jasmine’s recount of the day: "On the 13th of May Form 5 visited Gladesmore IT Academy. While they were there they explored the world of robotics. Accompanied on their journey by Mr Moses, Year 5 were fortunate enough to work with pre-built lego robots..."
 
Form 2 have been writing their own extended stories based upon Stanley and the Magic Lamp by Jeff Brown. The pupils thought carefully about using ambitious vocabulary, varied sentence openers and a range of connectives.

Listen to a pupil reading his exciting story.

On Thursday 14th March, four Year 5 students went on an exciting trip to Haileybury School for a science challenge. The team consisted of Jasmine, Laura, Dante and Euan. The day was split up into three main topics: physics, chemistry and biology.
 

Cricket is an acquired taste; it takes time to appreciate the subtle qualities of the game. Such as how much like a ‘family’ the team becomes, if you have been playing with your team-mates for 3-4 years you begin to get to know each other very well.

Chess v Lochinver
On Wednesday 15th May we welcomed five boys from Lochinver House to two rounds of chess. They all played extremely well. Norfolk House won the the first round 3.5 - 1.5. Lochinver House won the second round 3 - 2. 
 
We were therefore the overall winners by just one point: overall score Norfolk House 5.5 - Lochinver House 4.5. 
 
Well done to the team: Sanjay, Henry, Dylan, Samuel and Kieran.
 
The next fixture is at Lochinver House on 12th June.
