During Year 5, children have the opportunity to learn how to play a brass instrument. Music lessons will be taught weekly by two highly qualified teachers from Sefton.
After signing and returning the instrument consent form, children will be able to take their instrument home with them to practise what they have learnt in lessons that week.
Instruments will need to be brought into school every Wednesday for the music lesson.
Year 5 children can apply to be part of the Mini Police force and work with Sefton Police Officers, learning what it's like to be a police officer and working on ways to improve the local area.
At Norwood, we have recently launched ROAR RAINBOW which recognises childrens' mental health. As part of this launch, Year 4 and 5 children have been given the opportunity to apply to be a Roar Rocket. The successful applicants took part in a training day, teaching them all about how to help children that are struggling and how they can offer support.
