Newsletter - July 2018

As we prepare for the summer holidays (and hopefully the continuation of this fantastic weather) it is always a time of reflection in school.

As Head Teacher I am continually amazed at what a great team we have here at New Hall. This includes everyone from staff in the kitchen, admin, wrapa-round, teachers, governors and site staff. Thank you to each and every mem-ber of staff who make New Hall the best it can be. As Head Teacher I know how proud I am of all members of the New Hall community.

As Year 6 prepare to leave us I am also able to reflect on how incredibly talented our pupils are. The performance of ‘The Greatest Show’ allowed each and every child to shine and showcase their talents. Thank you one and all.

The hard work that the staff have put in to achieving terrific increased scores in our school data results are a testament to the commitment shown.

I hope you are all able to have some family time this holiday, and that you are able to make the most of the warm weather for as long as it lasts.

Thank you parents for your continued support. It was lovely to see so many of you at Open Afternoon, and to read the wonderful comments about the school, staff and leadership.

See you in September!

European Athletics Champion visited New Hall!

On Wednesday 4th July, European Athletics Champion James Dasaolu visited New Hall! James is the second fastest Briton of all time after running a 100m time of 9.91 seconds in the British Championships and he recently won gold at the European Champion-ships in Amsterdam.

Each year group from Y1 to Y5 participated in a fitness circuit, learnt about resilience and working hard to achieve their goals and had the chance to ask James their burning questions. Look out for James at the Olympics in 2020.

Sports Day

On Thursday 12th July, the whole school took part in another successful Sports Day. All pupils from EYFS to year six took part, tried their very best and had huge grins on their faces throughout, which is the most important focus of the day.

The children competed in track and field events as well as a dodgeball tournament to earn points for their houses.

Thank you to all of the parents and carers who came to support their children – they really appreciated you being there. An extra-special well done to all of the year six helpers and House Captains – you did an incredible job and the day wouldn’t have happened without you.

Forest School

This year both Reception and Year One chil-dren have enjoyed Forest School sessions. The children have experienced the changing seasons and weather, explored many aspects of nature, used tools and developed their creativity.

Other year groups have also used the site for various Science, Theme and Art activities.

Children across all year groups have taken responsibility for watering our blossoming garden area. We would like to thank the PTFA for providing the herbs and fruits and hope we can add some more to it next year.
