Sports Day 2017
Wow, wow, wow! What an amazing time Newstead had for sports week. The children have enjoyed so many different activities including Boccia (Luke and Molly are going to be pros!) Tuesday we participated in Yoga, Dylan and Connor were very good at the different positions. We then went to the activity centre to do some climbing, Dylan and Baylee loved this and got very high using the harness. We also enjoyed having lots of fun on the bouncy castle Cory and Kieran really liked this. Marissa was amazing and loved being our photographer for a lot of the activities she also enjoyed the circus skills. Lauren also loved this as well as being a pro climber on our apparatus at school! All children were amazing and had a go at everything! Well done Newstead!

This week has been very exciting in Newstead. On Monday some children cashed in some of their reward tokens for a trip to bowling. Newstead were amazing and we all got at least one strike!
On Wednesday we had a visit from 2 police officers and their police van! It was really interesting to hear what job the police do and we got to ask questions about how to stay safe when we are in the community as well as when online. We then went outside to look at the van, we decided we wouldn't like to go in there because it looks quite scary.

Around the World
In topic this term we are looking at different places around the world. This week we are learning all about France and so far we have looked at the famous buildings. On Monday we got to try some of the different foods they eat in France.Rather than snails and frogs legs, Newstead opted to try different cheese, croissants and some French yogurts and bread. Some of the cheese was really smelly and strong but a lot of the children loved the Brie and Roule!
Newstead have also been looking at how to be a good friend so they thought that it would be nice to invite some of Welbeck to join us for our French Feast.
Week Commencing 13th March 2017
This week children in Newstead did some excellent work in Maths all about 2D shapes. The children have learnt all about corners, sides and names of shape. Children also looked at triangles and how even if they look different they are still the same type of shape.

World Book Day
Some of the children enjoyed dressing up as their favourite characters as part of World Book Day. We spent lots of time looking at books and we even ran into the Big Bad Wolf from Little Red Riding Hood. We had to follow a map to get to Grandma's House to take her some biscuits because she was unwell. We walked around the school, around the school field and up to the music room. The big bad wolf was at Grandma's house so we ran away!
