MUGA

We are so fortunate to have our Multi Use Game Area (MUGA) that the children can enjoy using all year round.  Over half term, floodlights were installed which mean when we are allowed to, we will be able to play football matches after school during the winter months and Busy Bears will be able to play outside in the late afternoon.

YEAR 2 SELF-ISOLATION

Well done to the children who spent time at home isolating before half term.  They continued to work hard and complete their home learning.  The teachers enjoyed receiving messages on Purple Mash and responding to the work sent to them.  Year 2, you really were superstars, well done.

YEAR ONE HEROES DAY

On Friday 6th November, Year 1 enjoyed a spectacular day engaging in hero activities. We all looked fantastic, as we dressed up as our favourite heroes to celebrate all the wonderful service people who help us every day. We experienced everyday roles of some of the key workers within our community and had loads of fun racing to save people, solving mysteries and working as a team. 

   BLACK HISTORY MONTH

 

As part of our celebrations of Black History Month in Year 6, children were lucky enough to welcome a Year 7 pupil from Sweyne Park to Northwick and thoroughly enjoyed taking part in a talk with her about the origins of this celebration. The afternoon session provided a fantastic opportunity for all members of Year 6 to recognise the outstanding contributions people of African and Caribbean descent have made (and are still making) to our current world. The children enjoyed learning about many famous figures such as: Mary Seacole; George Washington Carver; Ruby Bridges and Rosa Parks.  They left with a sense of humility and empowerment to help be part of a future where we can combat racism and discrimination.

 

BIG-BOX DAYS

Year 2 returned to school after half term as designers and builders to create their very own City of London.  Using big boxes, paper, paint and a lot of masking tape, each team created a famous landmark.  It was a fun and creative couple of days and the results were amazing.  You can see all the photos on the school’s Facebook page.

BBC SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA

Our Year 4 pupils have all had a Zoom meeting with a member of the BBC Symphony Orchestra.  We met Michael Atkinson who plays the cello and Anita Langridge, a double bass player who spoke to the children about what it is like to be a professional musician.  They led the classes through some warm ups, played their instruments and taught everyone how to conduct a piece of music.  We would like to thank Michael, Anita and the BBC for giving us such a wonderful experience.

HARVEST FESTIVAL

Thank you for all your generous Harvest Festival donations.  Please see the letter we received.

 

“Dear Mrs Lane, staff and students,

Thank you so much for your wonderful food donation, we do appreciate your help and support of our charity.  We are providing approximately 50 food parcels every week to individuals, couples and families.  The demand for our services has increased significantly and your donation will help us to continue to provide help and support to the local community.  

We have had a busy year, and we have been able to continue our counselling service on the telephone.  However, we are now able to provide services for young people within the Government guidelines.

All of our services are provided free of charge so we rely on donations to help us continue helping young people and families.

 

Thank you again.”
