Laura's Star

The children in P2 have been reading the book Laura's Star by Klaus Baumgart. They wrote a message and tied it to a balloon.

AMAZING Artwork Unveiled!

Notice anything different in reception?

Our students have produced a collaborative piece of work based on their thoughts and feelings around activities done during the workshops at the end of the Summer term.



Students in ks3 and 4 created decorative masks and used comments from everyone in school collected at the time of the workshops. They carefully chose words like 'awesome' and 'amazing' and pressed letters into the masks. Other students chose pictures of students doing activities to form the basis of their design. Children in foundation stage pressed cutters and stamps into clay and produced very creative pieces.

All the designs were fired and glazed from July to September in our newly refurbished kiln and mounted on a striking background bearing the Newman school motto 'Better Never Stops'.

Special thanks to Mr John Ryan, site manager, for all his hard work putting the work up.

KS3.1 Autumn Equinox

Mrs Turnbull's form created these stunning pieces of art work to celebrate the start of Autumn. We layered on different textures using unusual objects like a toothbrush and a potato peeler. We used the shape of an Autumn leaf to make a stencil. We used black paint and a sponge to create the finished effect.

Well done!

A Different Perspective

Matt B has showed amazing skill in photography and creativity in making a timelapse movie of the iconic frontage of Newman School.



As part of his Creative and Media Level 2 quailification, KS5C have to plan, film and edit a short film. Matt's idea features a scene where he wanted to demonstrate the passage of time. He reasearched different ways of showing the passage of time, and decided timelapse photography was the best.


Enjoy this sneak preview of Matt's work.




The Cope Group have started their new activities as part of the Boost Project.




Stephen, Sam P, Sam F and Matt have been on the first day of the Boost Project. They started the day with some team building activities and meeting their peer mentors.


The group then moved on to Awesome Walls indoor climbing facility in Sheffield, to take on their first challenge: Rock climbing!

Shakespeare Workshops
bill.pngStudents have enjoyed two exciting, fun and enjoyable days in Shakespeare workshops, run by Open Minds Theatre Company. They have developed their acting, confidence and team-building skills during these special two days. We had Drama Queens and Kings, Sound Technicians, Stage Managers and a Musician in Residence; when it was time to perform, the students certainly put on a show to remember.

Matthew said "It was a brilliant experience" and Megan and Ellie gave it the thumbs up. Everyone clapped and jeered when the crown went to the rightful King of Scotland at the end! Well done everyone. You were all stars!

Gone Fishin'

Pupils at Newman School in KS4 have been on a fabulous fishing field trip.


KS4 have been fishing, and they had a fantastic time. The weather was good and the fish were biting. They pupils learned about all aspects of fishing, such as the different types of fish they were going to try and catch and what different fish liked to eat.

The pupils then went on to fish two different spots, with Declan managing to get the highest number of fish from the two spots. That was until, Bradley went and managed to get 11 fish in one location, catching Crucian Carp, Perch, Bream, Roach and Tench.
