In our class we enjoy exploring the different areas of our learning environment and spending time with our friends. This year our class names have been inspired by countries and we are named Scotland Class.


Our teacher's name is Mrs McPhail. We are very lucky to be supported by our teaching assistants Miss Kenney and Miss Rowe who help with our learning all day. Mrs Patten also helps to look after us on Tuesdays.


We enjoy participating in our specialist lessons on the following days of the week:

  • P.E. in the hall, please send your child to school in their P.E. kit, takes place on Wednesday- please ensure that all earrings are removed and that long hair is tied back.
  • Music Lessons take place on Tuesdays.
  • Discovery centre visits will take place on a Thursday afternoon.


Please try to visit our page on a regular basis to find out what we have been up to and refer to the attachments below for information regarding our current topic and a copy of our most recent class newsletter.

Norwood BLP Learning Heroes


At Norwood we believe in giving children the strategies and skills to be able to work their way through a problem independently. Over the next few weeks we will be introducing each of the BLP (Building Learning Power) Learning Heroes who will each teach the children about a strategy or skill they can use to help them when they face a challenge. 

Our first BLP Learning Hero that the children have learnt about is the Determinator. He is the champion of maintaining a Growth Mindset and he never gives up!
