Northwick Park Primary Academy June 2019 (2)
The Chamber Choir braved the rain to walk to the Paddocks to entertain the ‘breathe easy’ club. As usual they sang beautifully.
The rain stayed away three days enabling all the planned activities to take place. A great time was had by all 40 children and six staff.
YEAR SIX INDUCTION
Our Year 6 children have had their induction days at the secondary schools they will be attending in September.
Reminder this will take place on Wednesday, please keep sending in your donations!
YEAR 6 LONDON BUS COMPANY
This annual visit to Year 6 is always well received by both staff and children. It explains in an age appropriate way the effects of excessive drinking of alcohol.
YEAR 2 SPORTS FESTIVAL AT LEIGH BECK
All the Year 2 joined Year 2 at Leigh Beck for a multi-sports morning. They all really enjoyed the experience with the yellow team being the eventual winners.
YEAR 2 SUMMER GAMES FESTIVAL AT DEANES
30 children from Year 2 represented the school at a summer games festival at Deanes. They all had an enjoyable time participating in a range of sports.
MOBILE ASSAULT COURSE
What an exciting day we had. It was particularly pleasing to see the children who were initially reluctant to join in ‘having a go’. Well done to the parents who also had a go. After you had all gone, it was time for a staff team building session enjoyed by all, even those still carrying injuries.
YEAR 4 SPORTS ACTIVITY DAY
Year 4 enjoyed an action packed day participating in a range of sports. They all had the opportunity to try out table tennis, tag rugby, yoga, basketball and archery. We hope this will inspire them to join these extra-curricular clubs that are available in Year 5.
CANVEY CRICKET CHAMPIONSHIPS
Last week we hosted the Canvey Cricket Championships for both boys and girls. We were joined by teams from Canvey Juniors, Leigh Beck Juniors, St. Katherines and William Read. All the children had a brilliant day of cricket and both Northwick Park teams finished in third place in their respective competitions.
The new squad has been training hard and played their first match. We took a team to Glebe for a friendly training game. We lost the first half 3-0 and then won the second half 2-0. Mel was very pleased with the commitment shown by all players and I was very pleased with their exemplary behaviour.
CONCERT AT THE PADDOCKS
Working in partnership with the Community Choir and several local schools, our children from Year 2, Year 4 and Chamber Choir participated in either an afternoon or evening concert at the Paddocks. The children behaved impeccably and performed like professionals under the guidance of Miss Goldsmith. A special thank you to Frankie and Stanley who did not look out of place playing in the band alongside professional musicians. Stanley even did it with a fractured thumb!
The Year Two team represented Castle Point at the Essex Finals held at Basildon Sporting Village. They finished a very credible 6th out of ten teams. Congratulations to the team of Reggie, Micky, Danny, Reef, Baylee, Bella and their coach Mrs Shepherd.
KEY STAGE ONE AND RECEPTION SPORTS
The sun shone enabling our postponed sport afternoon to take place. The children enjoyed participating in all their races.
As part of our celebrations to commemorate the schools 50th birthday, this year we based our Arts Days around how things have changed in the last 50 years.
