Northwick Park Primary Academy June 2018 (2)
BOYS SINGING PROJECT
Boys in Years 4, 5 and 6 were joined for a day of singing with boys from Canvey Juniors and William Read. They worked on several pieces that they will be performing at the concert at the Paddocks on Friday 6th July. Thankfully England are not playing that night, so we hope they will all be able to attend this prestigious Canvey event.
The sun shone for the whole three days enabling all the planned activities to take place. A great time was had by all. The children (and staff) behaved incredibly well and had a great time.
GROWING UP TALKS
As discussed at the parent sessions, Year 5 and 6 have been participating in ‘growing up talks’ with Mrs Hyde.
Both teams represented Castle Point at the Essex finals at Basildon Sporting Village. The Year 3 and 4 team finished third, narrowly missing out on the chance to go onto the regional finals. Congratulations to the team and their coaches Mrs Cordon and Mrs Shepherd.
YEAR 2 TRIP TO DEANS
30 children from 2CG joined children from other local schools for a summer festival. They really enjoyed the experience and represented the school magnificently.
YEAR SIX INDUCTION
Our Year 6 children have had their induction days at the secondary school they will be transferring to in September.
We have received notification that our application for enhanced healthy schools status has been successful and is to be used as an example of excellent practice. Our action plans were around ‘healthy eating’ and ‘aspirations for our future’!
The reading café is now closed for the summer. Thank you to everyone who was able to attend. I hope you enjoyed the lollies!
What fun we all had! Darren and Mrs Hughes will be working with children to completed the mural by the end of term. Congratulation to Albert, Ruby, Summer, Ola and Chioma and their families who won prizes in the ‘Be Kind’ poster competition.
YEAR 3 SAFETY TALKS
Year 3 participated in some very informative fire safety sessions led by Essex Fire Services.
We all enjoyed eating Gracies winning healthy meal of roast chicken, roast potatoes, peas and broccoli. Thank you Mrs Painter and team for cooking it!
Thank you everyone who contributed with your donations and attendance. A magnificent £1,100 was raised and the money will be used to purchase a defibrillator. The remaining money will be used to purchase playtime equipment.
The annual Canvey Awards took place at Cornelius. One child is chosen from each year group from every Canvey School. I proudly read out a citation for the Northwick Children.
