This week in Norfolk

 

Week beginning Monday 21.11.22

 

This week, we have been continuing to practise our nativity songs - the children are sounding fantastic already and are getting very excited! 

 

In Art, the children have been working hard at copying an intricate William Morris motif. In Science, we investigated what materials would be best at muffling sound - bizarrely, we found that a ruler was effective at muffling sound (we're not sure if it was truly a fair test!). In Computing, the children have been debugging computer programs with bugs in. They had to identify what the bug was in the different animations on Scratch and then work methodically and systematically to identify the bug and debug it. 

 

Our Class Timetable

 

This is a typical week in Norfolk 4. Our timetable can change each week as we often have special events or exciting learning opportunities which will change a typical school day.
