Congratulations to the children from year 4 & 6 who represented the school in a local inter-school football tournament organised by the police, which was held at our school today. The squad of 5 boys and 7 girls played really well, particularly in the two game we won! We qualified for the semi-finals, but lost out to Much Woolton who went on to win the trophy. What a great day!
This term pupils in KS2 have had the opportunity to attend a Salsa club during Wednesday lunchtime with Miss Thompson. The pupils are really enjoying their new dance and their confidence is growing.
Well done to everyone who attends each week.
Keeping Fit and Healthy at Norman Pannell
At Norman Pannell we take PE very seriously as we believe that children should be educated about how to keep their bodies fit and healthy! We also believe that taking part in competitions is healthy, as children acquire skills such as resilience, determination, team building and communication. Because of this we are determined at Norman Pannell to offer our children as many opportunities as possible to play sport against other schools.
At Norman Pannell we pride ourselves on achievement in sport. We have a close link with Liverpool Swimming Partnership and aim to have all children by the end of year 6 swimming 25 meters or more, this is in line with the National expectation. In order for us to meet this aim we are now ensuring that all year groups will go to swimming lessons for at least 6 weeks from Year 2-Year 6

There will be no more races till February now, so plenty of time for us to continue practising.
A huge congratulations to Leighton Maher in Year 6 who has managed to come within the top 3 runners in Liverpool, out of approximately 150 children. This is a huge achievement for him and we are extremely proud at Norman Pannell about how well he represents our school during these tournaments.
