One of the pupil's who use the brand new 'Our Space' room at Newman School has made a short video to show others what it is like.
They spent a lot of time and put in a lot of effort to make the film. This was even more remarkable as they had never done any work using video cameras or editing film before. We hope you enjoy our film.
Well done to everyone who helped with the production of the film!

Children In Need Football
As part of the School's Children in Need fundraising, Jaguars House suggested that a football match be played between staff and pupils.
The match took place on Thursday, with the pupils edging a close match 6-5 as the staff began to tire near the end!
All enjoyed the match with staff's four-goal hero Louise 'Lineker' Anderson stating "At the end of the day, I was over the Moon Barry. It was a game of two halves and after we took the lead early doors, we should have parked the bus - very much so. But it only takes a second to score a goal and, to be fair, there are no easy games at this level."
The upper school play hockey every Thursday lunch-time.
Nearly everyone takes part. We have lots of fun but it always better to play when the sun is shining!
A video of one of our games (and of Dan chuntering to the referee(!)) is shown below.
KS3 Harvest Festival
Key Stage 3 are finding out about Christianity in Rotherham, what Christians believe and how this affects their lives. Local churches have Harvest Festivals, so the children collected food for the primary Harvest Festival. Danny Miller, Manager of Rotherham Food Bank collected the donations, which will go to local people who find it difficult to provide for themselves and their families. All families in school now know this support is available if they need it.
