Newsletter – July 2021

Another academic school year will shortly be ending for our pupils. Of course at this time of year we bid farewell to our year 6 pupils who will be heading off to their secondary schools. As with last year’s leavers we haven’t quite been able to do all of the usual celebrations and goodbyes. However next week we intend to make the most of our fantastic school site to celebrate with them, whilst the rest of the school will be spending time with their new teachers.

Last week we did manage to have two days at Beaudesert with year 6, where they were able to participate in some exciting activities including archery, zip wire, a caving simulator and pedal karts to name but a few. Both Mrs Hemming and I were determined to have a day each with them and were able to enjoy having fun and seeing just what a fantastic year group they are.

We wish you well as you continue your education journey at secondary school.

On Friday of this week reports will be sent electronically to parents along with the name of your child’s teacher for next year. It has struck me once again this year, whilst reading the reports just how amazingly we have continued to have the education of our pupils at the heart of everything we do. They have achieved so much.

Thank you parents, all staff and supporters of New Hall for another year of progress.

In spite of everything that has been out of our control, we have prospered. Well done everyone.

Some more happy news to finish – Miss Lynch is having a baby!

I wish you all a safe, restful and happy summer.

Mrs Hanks

Year 6 Trip to Beaudesert

On Thursday 8th July and Friday 9th July 2021, Year 6 went on their Residential to Beaudesert Outdoor Activity Centre, near Cannock Chase.

We had two days of fun activities which included Pedal Karts, Low Ropes, Monkey Climb Tree, Archery, Caving, Crate Stacking, Kayaking and a Quarry Zip Line. Children had a chance to try something which they had never tried before. Some children faced their fears, especially on the Monkey Tree Climb and the Crate Stacking.

An enjoyable time was had by everyone.

Sports Week

New Hall’s sports day looked slightly different due to the current restrictions.

Over the last week, year groups took part in an inter-year group ‘Sports Day’. Children were able to participate in events such as sprints, relays, egg and spoon race, javelin throwing and tug of war. The children really enjoyed being able to participate against their peers.

Home Talk – P4C at home

Last month we mentioned that in each newsletter you will find a document which will provide an interesting stimulus for the children to discuss with their family and friends at home.

They will discuss these topics at school in an assembly time. This is not extra homework but an opportunity tor philosophical talk outside of school as so many of our children love our P4C lessons. We hope you enjoy it.
