Mental Health Awareness Week
On Monday 18th June, we all enjoyed a 'Potted' Sports Day. In the morning years 4 and 5 and during the afternoon years 3 and 6 were split into 10 mixed teams, that rotated around 10 different activities. It became very competitive but the main thing was that everyone enjoyed themselves (as you can see from the the pictures below).

Black History Day
Monday 11th June
Today at Newlands we have enjoyed many different activities over the course of the day learning African drumming, African dancing, learning about famous black figures throughout history, stories from other cultures and African and Aboriginal art.
We also enjoyed some hot weather and were able to eat our lunches outside.
"I enjoyed the aboriginal art and drumming."
"I enjoyed all the activities today but my favourite was learning about all the different famous black people."
"I loved drumming today!"
"I enjoyed the art and dancing"
"I loved getting my own drum and practising drumming!"
"My favourite activity was the African Art where we made masks using contrasting colours"
AAhhhh!! There's a SKULL in our pond!
This week, to enthuse the children and stimulate their imagination for our Golden Write, we decided to play a little trick on our Y4/5s. Mr Williams (our site manager) buried a replica skull in the mud at the bottom of our garden pond, which has been drained ready for re-landscaping to take place. We placed police tape round the area and PCSO Marsden, from Mansfield Police, kindly popped in to give an interview to the children. Mr Williams and Mrs Castledine were also interviewed and the children then wrote a newspaper article about our gruesome find!
