Year 6 kick start the summer term with a lesson on team work. A lead sports teacher from Connaught secondary school gets the children up and running with a variety of team activities. All children learn how to work together to achieve their goal!

Here they are organising themselves into height order - without stepping off the bench. Then later on they organise themselves into age, without talking!

Now kids, get this ball to the end without touching it!

Eggshibition 7th April 2011

EGGs - hibition winners 2011 This year Newport's children have been busy at home being eggstremely creative! We didn't think it could get any better than last year, but we were wrong. We had an amazing display and choosing 3 winners from each year group was very difficult, we believe everyone was a winner in their own right. We would like to thank all the parents for supporting their child at home with their competition entry, we appreciate all the time and effort that has been put in.

Boys' Exciting Writing Workshop.

Did you know that watching a great action film can give you lots of ideas on how to improve your writing?Well, that was just what some developing writers in Yr3/4 discovered whilst attending a suspense writing workshop this week with Mrs Fieldgate at Cranford Park Primary school.This special "boys only " event was part of a series of regular events organised by Rushmoor's more able pupil cluster group.
After studying some exciting, nail biting film clips the boys worked collaboratively to devise a toolkit of great techniques to build up tension in their narrative writing. This included the use of pathetic fallacy which in the case of suspense writing means that as something strange/unusual happens , it is mirrored in a dramatic change in atmosphere for example a lovely sunny day suddenly develops into a threatening storm filled sky.
Newport's boys soon put their exciting writing ideas on paper and eagerly shared their writing with their new friends from other local schools. All too soon it was time to return to Newport however I'm sure the boys will soon be sharing their writing skills with their classmates.
