Northwick Park Primary Academy Jan 2020
Thank you to everyone for supporting 3PR and helping to keep all our children safe. The children are very excited about the challenge to collect the most tokens for their class.
SCHOOL CROSSING PATROL
In January we asked the School Crossing Patrol coordinator at Essex County Council to consider reinstating a crossing patrol on the Zebra Crossing in Link Road. They agreed to undertake a detailed count of pedestrians and vehicles. This took place on the 16th of January and I am delighted to inform you that the crossing site meets the requirements for the provision of a School Crossing Patrol Officer. I will keep you updated as to when someone is appointed, we have been informed this may take several months.
Congratulations to our Eco Warriors led by Mrs Moore, Miss Gillbe and Mrs Philips, they have achieved the Bronze Award for Northwick Park. We have been given this award to recognise their achievement in working towards a sustainable lifestyle. We are now well on our way to achieving our Silver Award.
This week we have had the Netball court re-marked and some playground markings put down on the big playground. The children have enjoyed using these during their playtimes.
THE SKY HAS NO LIMITS
If your child hasn’t returned their slip with their goal for July, please encourage them to do so - we will then be able to display their target and celebrate them achieving it!
ONLINE SAFETY MEETINGS
Reminder - these very important meetings will take place on Wed 12th February at 9.00, 2.00 + 6.00.
FOOTBALL MATCH AGAINST GROVEWOOD
The 7-a-side team travelled to Grovewood in Rayleigh to participate in the next round of the County Group. They played really well but narrowly missed out on progressing to the next round.
Year 4 have been enjoying their weekly swimming sessions at Waterside Leisure Centre. Already, the children are becoming more confident in the water. The children who don’t go swimming are enjoying the outdoor PE lessons on the MUGA with Mel.
YEAR 2 AUSTRALIA DAY
Year 2 children celebrated Australia Day by participating in a range of activities. It was lovely to see so many parents at their special assembly and joining in the dancing with such enthusiasm. Thank you for your generous donations, over £100 was raised that will be sent to the Koala Sanctuary.
Miss Young had her baby at 2.35am this morning. Margot Charlotte Young arrived safely weighing 8lb 5oz. Mrs Sames has joined the nursery team and Miss Brown the kitchen staff.
We have tried to contact various parents from the numbers we have on our system and these numbers are not working! Please could you inform the office immediately if you have changed your mobile/home telephone number. Thank you for your assistance.
