Fantastic Photography Freebie

KS5B Have been doing an outdoor photography project. Members of KS5B have been concentrating on 'close up' shots of objects in the outside environment.

Here are a selection of their best photographs. They are absolutely stunning and would not look out of place in a photographic exhibition.


What makes them even better is you can download the picture to use as your desktop background or even print out and put in a frame.

You can do this by right clicking the photo and then clicking 'Save picture as...' You will then have a copy of the picture on your computer.


Well done KS5B!


ASC Social Group Enterprise

004Also in preparation for the Autism Awareness Week, the ASC social group that meet on a Friday afternoon made and sold bookmarks. Through doing this, the students practiced explaining what they was doing, using their manners and being sensible around school, as well as using maths skills practically.

They raised £17.01 which will be split between the National Autistic Society and themselves, to buy some Top Trump cards.

Well done you lot, we're very proud of you.

Autism Awareness

007As part of the Austism Awareness Week, a group of students have created a tree about what it is like to be autistic. Using jigsaw piece shaped leaves (jigsaw pieces are used as a logo for the National Autistic Society), the students wrote about themselves.

They wrote about their favourite films and TV programmes, food and drink, and colours but also about what makes them feel upset or uncomfortable, what they know about autism or how they would describe it and something that often gets misjudged about autism.

Solar Eclipse


The solar eclipse captured at Newman School on the 20th of March 2015.


The Queen came to Newman School!

On Thursday the 5th March all students took part in 'Picture This' day. Picture This is a Rotherham wide project with work displayed in July at the Children's Festival at the New York Stadium.



We looked at the picture, Seaport and the embarkation of the Queen of Sheba in the hall at the start of the day.

The Queen of Sheba appeared out of the picture and demanded we make her some artefacts and perform for her. The students went into workshops and created some amazing stuff!



At the end of the day students showed off their creations, performed and played for the Queen. They even made her a boat to continue on her journey.

Well done everyone!

Red Nose Day


Jay says 'Remember Red Nose Day Everyone!'

On Friday 13th March children and staff at Newman School can dress up, wear red or even decorate their face or hair! Voluntary donations welcome.
