At Norman Pannell we love to meditate!
Year 1 have been talking about their feelings, reading books and looking at characters emotions and meditating.
Love Food, Hate Waste!
Over the last few weeks at Norman Pannell we have been supporting our school food provider 'Food for thought' in their campaign 'Love food, Hate Waste!'
This campaign aims to encourage children to waste less food. With Autumn festivities well under way, we thought of one vegetable that seems to be wasted a lot, the pumpkin.
We would like to thank Tom from 'Food for thought' for coming in and making Pumpkin Soup and Corn Bread with both children and parents from all classes. This was a fun activity and everybody had lots of fun, as well as learning about how to eat healthily. Thank you to all parents who got involved, and messy!
Norman Pannell School recently held a Health Week. This came about because of an initiative of Change4life whose current campaign is to promote snack swaps (swap unhealthy snacks for a healthier option)! We thought this would be the perfect opportunity to have Health as a focus this week. There has been all sorts of activities going on from cooking, aerobics, meditations, planting healthy food and much more! Everybody particularly enjoyed the daily wake up and shake up activities that brought the hall alive every morning from 9-9.30.
See below some of the photographs from the week-the activity that KS2 seemed to really enjoy was soup and smoothie making, maybe this is something you can do together at home!
Norman Pannell School invited Marcus Harrison in to talk about sport. At aged 16 Marcus has been very successful in sport and has played for England in the Wheelchair Football Championships, he was given a cap for playing for his country and brought this in to show the children. The children in KS2 were very fortunate to be given the chance to play Boccia, one of the sports that Marcus plays. He also visited the younger children and answered questions that they had prepared. This was a great day for all involved and the children look forward to another visit from Marcus soon, where they will get the chance to play some wheelchair football!
