Newlands’ Got Talent – Wednesday 17th July 2019
Just before the summer holiday the school to spent an afternoon celebrating all of the talent there is here at Newlands. We were all wonderfully entertained by a range of different acts. My personal highlight was Charlie Strickland’s magic act in which I became his not so glamorous assistant.
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat
After three weeks of rehearsal, years six and four had an amazing time performing Joseph. I (Thomas) loved dancing across the stage playing the clown. I (Isaac) loved playing the funny role of Potiphar. Our classmates were wonderful in their roles, we loved Joseph in his amazing colourful coat. We hope you all enjoyed our performance, we certainly enjoyed entertaining you.

Tuesday 2nd July – Sports Day
We really enjoyed the basketball, it was both challenging and fun. We also really enjoyed the javelin event, it was really fun throwing the javelin and most of us got it past the last pole. The races were great fun it gave children the chance to show people what they could really do and how fast they can run. We also really enjoyed it when the parents cheered us on using our names. We think everyone had a lot of fun including the parents especially when they got to join in.

Friday 14th June was the school annual Den Building afternoon and this year the whole school was invited.
Following the success of last year’s infant Den Building Day we decided to involve the whole school. The intent behind the event was to open up the school to parents, facilitate a discussion about child development and physical activity while also highlighting the school progression of skills for reading.
The standard of dens was impressive, at least two had fairy lights. Both children and adults seemed to thoroughly enjoy themselves. Thank you to everyone who attended and made this such a wonderful event.
5th April 2019 – Our first parent and child colour team day was a huge success. With a focus on resilience everyone was pushed out of their comfort zone in a range of activities. Huge thanks to the staff for their enthusiasm and passion and to the parents and children for their ever-present support.
2nd April 2019 – Today was the turn of our guitarists to entertain the school. Under the expert tuition of Mrs Jenkins the children have made wonderful progress and enjoyed showing off their accomplished guitar skills.
