Gedney Drove End Primary School

Norway

Welcome to Norway class!

Class teacher: Miss M. Theobald

Our values in Norway class: learning, listening to each other, working together, and never giving up.

This term, our topic is Revolution. We’ll discover a time when great mind thought new thoughts and ingenious inventors created so many things we take for granted today: the electric light bulb, the telephone and even the first flushing loo!

In year 5 and 6, we try to provide the children with extra responsibilities around the school such as: House and Vice Captains, Lunchtime Leaders and School Councillors. We place a big emphasis on the children learning to become responsible citizens, who are aware of their roles, rights and responsibilities for themselves and towards the community.

Other important information:

PE is on a Monday and Tuesday. Please ensure your child is dresses in the full and appropriate (indoor and outdoor) PE kit with them on these days, including our federation hoodies. Children with long hair should have their hair tied up, and any watches or jewellery need to be removed. Swimming is on alternate Mondays. Please check the newsletter for dates.

Weekly homework will be given to the children on a Friday, and must be handed in on the following Thursday. Reading should take place every night (this can be to an adult or independently).

If you have any questions or concerns, please do come and speak to us. We want your child to be safe and happy, and enjoy school. Keep checking back for updates to our webpage and don’t forget to visit Edi’s blog for the latest news.
