Northwick Park Primary Academy              March 2019


All the children in Key Stage One and Two attended an age appropriate assembly delivered by the NSPCC.  Children in Year 5 and 6 then participated in workshops in their classrooms about keeping safe on line and telling a trusted adult.


Recently two teams took part in a cheerleading competition at Deanes.  They all performed exceptionally well with the Year 3 and 4 team winning their category.  They will now go onto represent Castle Point and Rochford at the County Finals.  GO NORTHWICK!!


Once again, our families turned out in force to support this annual fundraising event.  Please keep sending your sponsor money in.  We will inform you of the total at the end of term.


Thank you to everyone who supported our book fair last week.  I hope you and your children have been enjoying their purchases.  We took £1,269.20 which gave us £701 to spend on books to restock our library.


Year 5 were treated to an interactive ‘Reading Skills Show’ at Castle View.  They really enjoyed the experience.


How exciting it was to come back to school in our pyjamas.  How excited the teachers were to put their pyjamas on most by four o’clock!  What a lovely evening of stories, hot chocolate and cookies.


A very enthusiastic team travelled to Cedar Hall to participate in an Essex FA sponsored soccability event.  They managed to avoid  the showers and thoroughly enjoyed the experience of competing against other schools.  They were all very proud to return to Northwick with gold medals.


Year 6 enjoyed a long and exciting day when they visited Harry Potter World.  Their behaviour was exemplary and a great day was had by all.  The visit will be used as the stimuli for their writing over the next three months.  This writing will be the major part of their Year 6 portfolio of work that will be used to assess their writing levels in their Year 6 SATs.


The boys team continue to perform well in the Canvey league.  A strong on form team beat William Read 9-1.  Despite losing heavily, William Read were still smiling at the end and are to be commended for the spirit in which they played.  The winning run continued with a 3-0 win away at Glebe.


Thank you everyone for supporting this worthwhile cause.  We completely sold out of noses and over £400 was raised on Friday as we were all fined for not wearing our usual school clothes.


On Monday 18th March, 6 of our school councillors were joined at Northwick Park by School Councillors from seven other Canvey Schools.  They had a really enjoyable and informative day around e-safety.


How beautifully they sang!  This week our Year 2 choir performed at the Infant Music Festival.  As well as joining in with the communal songs, they performed two individual songs both of which they had composed.

BUSY BEARS (collection of children at the end of the day)We have recently had two incidents of parents/carers trying to collect their children as they are being taken to Busy Bears after school.  For safety reasons any children who are on their way to Busy Bears must be collected from Busy Bears and not taken out of the line.  We also have an increasing number of children who are not being collected on time. In future, any children not collected by 3.05 will be taken to Busy Bears and a charge will be made.

Please help us to keep your children safe!
