Nathan leads Newport B to victory

Year 4 and 5 Newport boys turned out to play at the annual Turner Trophy tournament at Church Crookham  while the Farnborough Air Show was in full flight above us.

Both teams  played in a round robin against Velmead and CC teams.All the games were keenly contested but both our teams were still looking for their first victory when they faced each other.

In a close game, Nathan's shot took a deflection and beat Louie in goal to secure a 1-0 victory for the B team boys. It was a marvellous moment for Nathan and showed just what you can achieve if you show determination and teamwork.
Nathan, who has been doing extra cognitive exercises this year comes to training week in , week out. His goal was a great reward for his commitment and enthusiasm.
Well done Nathan!

The Olympic Movie Company presents....

Ron Howard, the Hollywood director of films such as  Apollo 13,  The Da Vinci Code and Parenthood, has been spending a lot of time recently in Hampshire. We aren't sure of the release date of his lastest blockbuster , Rush, filmed on location at Blackbushe airport but we do know that if he needs a team to produce a movie trailer for it Newport Year 4 pupils could do a fabulous job.
During a recent two day workshop, Year 4 pupils working in close collaboration with Year 10 pupils at Wavell School produced five movie trailers that tell the exciting true life stories of some amazing Olympians including Jim Thorpe, Mark Spitz, Teofilio Stevenson, Nadia Commaneci and Darren Campbell. The Olympic Movie Company's imaginary brief was to storyboard the Olympian's achievements highlighting the Olympic values they had demonstrated during their quest for gold.

 Using green scene technology, the latest movie pro and music editing software  every group produced an impressive trailer to incredibly tight deadlines. There was just enough time for a quick bite to eat in Wavell's busy lunch hall before watching the first rushes of the trailers. A very big thank you to the wonderful Year 10 pupils and Mrs Carol Giblen Wavell's AST of ICT.
