‘Donate A Morning’ Break Out

What a success it was!

The idea of this morning was for the children and adults in our school to donate time to our local community.

Thank you to everyone involved, to families who donated items, volunteers who helped, staff who were so enthusiastic, but most importantly, to our amazing children who worked incredibly hard during Donate a Morning for the greater good.

We have spoken to the children about being ‘agents of change for the community’ and they certainly lived up to it, making us all very proud.

Just to give you a picture of the morning:

Reception: The children went out into the field to take part in Forest School and learn about how to help our local wildlife.

Year 1: Created beautiful paintings and performed a song and we will be sending these electronically to Nightingales Care Home.

Year 2: Created care packages that were beautifully decorated to send to the Salvation Army.

Year 3: Designed sandwiches for the Pantry. The winning sandwich will be made for three weeks at the Pantry!

Year 4: Some children did some gardening with Mrs Falconer at the front of the school (have a look as it looks absolutely brilliant). Others completed beautiful stained glass thank you cards for our local parish heroes.

Year 5: Created a beautiful assortment of thank you posters and messages entitled the ‘Book of Gratitude’ this will be sent to our local Mid District Doctor’s Surgery to say thank you to all of the staff.

Year 6: were tasked with the challenge of creating new designs for Newick Green to send to our local Parish Council. They have worked extremely hard to think about ensuring the park caters for everyone’s needs in their new designs.

I hope you and your child felt that the time spent on building their personal development was worthwhile for them as citizens. We certainly did.

Our popular Break Out Days are a fantastic opportunity for the children to learn new skills and take part in other activities in and outside of school; these can include nature walks, cooking, crafts, sport competitions and much more! They are an important part of our curriculum and help to enrich learning further.

Golden Hinde Trip

We had a fantastic day when we travelled back in time to 1577 and lived the life of a Tudor sailor on board the Golden Hinde.

Look out for our Tudor exploration learning and writing, including life on board a Tudor Galleon in our English books.

Science Week – Our Diverse Planet

We arrived at school to discover that Mr Barnes’ sandwich had been stolen!

The crime scene was taped off and DNA evidence collected.  Suspects (6 members of staff) had their fingerprints, teeth imprints, hair fibres and pens taken, to be tested by the children.

As a school, we set out to investigate and put our forensic skills to good use. We worked scientifically observing closely, identifying and classifying as we carried out investigations including finger printing, teeth imprints, chromatography, fibres, hairs and cells.

Finally, we collected and recorded our data and made conclusions about who the guilty suspect was before we shared our findings as a school.

 

World Book Day

What a World Book Day we had this year! We spent the whole day reading with buddies, friends and even some of our parents came in to read (Thank you!).

Our Year 6 children had the opporuntiy to watch the live performance of Macbeth by the Royal Shakespeare Company.

Take a look at the amazing effort our staff and children went to to celebrate reading at Newick School.
