Ms Nordloh

My name is Michelle Nordloh and I have been at Greyfriars since 2009. I love maths and will talk about it to anyone as it is the MOST important and fun subject in the WORLD! Amazing Maths Fact If you enter Pi to two decimal places (3.14) in the your calculator and look at it in the mirror, you’ll see it spells ‘pie’. Try it!)

Outside of school I like to read (about maths) knit, and go to Costa.

In this classroom, we believe we can, and so we do!

Good morning Cromer Class,

I hope you are all well and healthy. As it’s officially the school holidays I won’t be blogging as much. There won’t be a new home learning grid until 20th April (summer term). But there is still Education  City work you can do and don’t forget your diaries!
I hope you have a lovely Easter and if you want to send me a photo of your favourite egg, I would love to see it.
Stay well and Happy Easter.

Good Morning Cromer Class,

I hope you are all well.  I’ve heard from Lola – it was lovely to hear from you.

Thought of the day: “With the new day come new thoughts and new strengths.” – Eleanor Roosevelt.  This is really true in how how our lives have all changed recently with Covid 19.  Have you had any new thoughts or discovered any new strengths?  I’ve realised that although shopping is my hobby, I don’t need it to survive.  I thought I needed a McDonalds coffee every morning.  I didn’t.  I just wanted one.  I hope you’re keeping your diary about this time (from the home learning grid).  This is a time which will be written about in the history books.  Your children will ask you what you did during this time.  Your grandchildren will want to know as well.  That’s a strange thought, isn’t it?

Did you take part in the clapping for essential workers last night?  I did.

Has anyone done the Joe Wicks workouts?  I’ve been at school for a couple of days this week and I’ve been doing them.  They’re tough! Especially for an old lady like me!  If you’ve done them, let me know how you got on.

Has anyone read any good books lately?

Has anyone learnt any new crafts? Knitting?  I’ve been doing quite a bit of knitting.

Keep in touch.  Hope to see you soon.

Hello Again Cromer Class…

Posted on Wednesday, April 1st, 2020

I just wanted to ask if any of you have done the virtual tour of Anne Frank’s house?  If you do, please let me know what you think to it.

Use your imagination and think about leaving the UK to arrive in Holland (how did you get there – boat, plane, swim, a car through the Channel Tunnel, etc).  Where did you stay?  A beautiful spa hotel, camping, etc?  What did you do?  Perhaps you could write a diary entry about it or make some PowerPoint slides.

Remember, with the Home Learning Grids you don’t have to do everything on the grid.  If you have any questions please ask and I will try to answer them.  These are difficult and strange times we are living through.  This is a period of time that will go down in history.  In years to come people will be asking you what you were doing at this time!

Has anyone listened to David Walliams readings?  I think they’re really good.

Please keep in touch and let me know what you’re doing.

Hello Cromer Class

I hope you are all well and happy.  I’ve had a few emails from you.  It’s been lovely to hear from you.  Please email me!

Niks has been working hard on his Power Maths and writing.

Here is his work on toadstools:

Isabelle is working hard too.  She’s written another story and has done a PowerPoint of Women in World War II and included some information about Anne Frank.  Has anyone read (or seen the film) The Diary of Anne Frank.  I read it years ago (when I was a teenager, yes they had books then…lol)  It’s a true story about a young Jewish girl who goes into hiding with her family when the Nazis occupy Holland.  She can’t leave the ‘Secret Annex’ or make any noise.  If she does she risks her whole family’s safety.  Through her diary you see how Anne and her family manage to survive for so long.

Year 5/6 Virtual Trip to Amsterdam!

Posted on Wednesday, April 1st, 2020

Hello Year 5/6 children, you may have noticed (on the Learning Grid for this week) that there is a virtual trip to Ann Frank House in Amsterdam. Museums all around the world are currently offering ‘virtual tours’ for free. This is an unprecedented opportunity to ‘visit’ places and see things that we might not get to actually do in real life. So, would you like to take a ‘trip’ to Amsterdam today? Let’s go:

Year 5/6 Trip to Ann Frank House

KLM Flight to Amsterdam 

Departs 10am from Gatwick Airport (meet you there – BUT NOT REALLY – JUST PRETEND!)

Arrives 11:30


Check into 5 Star Hotel  12pm






Take a tram through the city 1pm!




Arrive Ann Frank House 1:30pm

Feel free to explore the house on the following links but don’t forget to take notes and tell me what you found interesting during the visit! Can you tell me who Ann Frank was? What do you learn about her and her family during WW2? What was the secret annex?
