Pancake Day

EYFS made pancakes to mark Shrove Tuesday. We all had a turn at mixing then Annette showed off her amazing pancake tossing skills! We tried lemon, sugar, jam and chocolate spread toppings. Ava said she definetly liked the chocolate best. Iona liked the jam.
We also tried flipping our own cardboard pancakes and trying to balance them on our heads!


Live Music Now

On Wednesday we were treated to a 'musical journey around the world'!

The Boreas Wind Quartet performed a lively selection of pieces written by a variety of composers from around the globe.

A selection of pupils were given a baton to conduct the musicians! Everyone had fun and enjoyed the music.

Key stage 3 and 4.1 have done a project about gargoyles. They researched different types and created designs on paper.They then used plastercine to develop designs and finally clay.
The clay models were then fired in the kiln, glazed and fired again. The results are stunning pieces of artwork, well done! They are displayed near the entrance in school.

International E Safety Day 2014

In EYFS we read a story about Smartie the Penguin who learned how to keep safe on the computer.
We sang a song about keeping safe;
"Before you click, click, click
You've got to think, think, think
We all made a penguin mask to help us remember Smartie the Penguin and how he helps us keep safe.

Ofsted Report

ofsI am delighted to share with you our Ofsted Report. The Governing body and I are very pleased with the content of the Report and we would like to thank you for your valuable and ongoing contribution to making Newman a very good school for each of our children and young people.

The challenging new Ofsted framework recognises that Newman is a good school. Within that, the inspectors judged that the Behaviour and Safety of pupils is Outstanding. The very positive report reflects the excellent achievements of each of our children and young people, supported by their families, our staff and Governors.

We will be formally celebrating our achievement with our children and young people later this half term.

Yours sincerely,

Julie Mott
