Today is our ‘Moment in Time’ blogging event. Whilst some of you may have been thinking about your hopes and dreams for the future, some of you may already have a special memory from your time at Norbridge Academy so far. Comment on this blog post to share your memories with us.
In 2010, a little, blue-eyed boy called Louie was born in a big, beautiful, English town called Worksop. Louie was very clever.
Two years later, Louie had a brother called Seb. When Louie had a brother, he wanted to play football and when Seb was four year’s old, Louie was football mad. When Louie’s team got into the final, they won. They were very happy.
In 2010, a little, brown-eyed girl was born in a hospital in an English town called Rotherham. Her name was Evie and she lived with her mum and dad. In 2013, her brother was born. He was called Olly.
Evie’s mummy was a beautiful, young woman. Her mum, dad and brother loved her very much. When Evie was born, they thought she was gorgeous and they adored her. She had beautiful, brown eyes and sparkly, blonde hair.
On the way home, they bought a cradle and some blankets called blankies.
In 2011, a little, green-eyed girl was born. Her name was Blossom. Her mum was pretty girl. When Blossom saw her mum she liked her and her mum liked her too.
Sometimes, baby Blossom cried and cried and cried, but she always stopped. She laughed lots too.
Then, Nanny came to babysit. The baby cried when Mum left but when she came home, she was happy.
In 2011, a blue-eyed boy was born in Worksop. He was called Dylan. He was born in Worksop hospital.
Dylan started to grow up and in May he was six years old. He started at Norbridge and he started to become a brave boy. He got good at school. He was getting good at his homework. Dylan was awesome at music.
Today, we joined Peacock Class for our Horrible History Day! We dressed as characters from the past to bring history to life and participated in a range of activities linked to these historical figures.
We have had a fantastic day and would like to tell you all about our favourite parts of the day. Click on link to read our comments:
This half term, we are holding a special blogging challenge that will give children a chance to show their fantastic story writing skills.
The challenge is to create a story based on the picture above. Children could write about who lives in these magical woods, what adventures they might go on in the magical woods or any other ideas that the children might have.
Please post your entries by commenting on this post. The deadline for this challenge is: Thursday 30th November. We are looking forward to reading your ideas. There will be a winner from Year 1 and Year 2, who will receive a trophy and a prize. The winner will also have their writing published in the school newsletter! There are also several prizes for runners up.
In our English lessons this week, we have been writing questions to ask a character. We have discussed what we need to include in a good question, including question words, capital letters and question marks.
On Friday, Dr Proctor sent Charles Dickens from the past to meet us and help us practice asking some of the questions that we have written. Your challenge is to comment on this blog post and write a question that you might want to ask Charles Dickens. Remember to include your punctuation and exciting question words. You might even try to include a conjunction to extend your sentences.
FIRE SPREADS THROUGH LONDON
On Sunday 2nd September, 1666, a hot, burning fire spread through London.
The huge, dangerous fire started in a bakery on Pudding Lane. It was Thomas Farriner’s bakery.
Thomas left his oven on and a spark of fire jumped out and spread through the city.

Thomas Farriner left his oven on. A spark fell out of the oven.
A large fire started to spread through the big, wooden houses. It spread through all over and burned the houses down.
