Our school trip to Whittington Barracks was “absolutely stunning”. The years 4 to 6 went on the Thursday 21st January. We left school at 9.30am in cars and arrived in 20 minutes. We were split into two groups, one with a high ranking army man and the other with an elderly couple who lived and fought through the Second World War. Group one first learnt about weapons and uniforms while group two learnt about rationing and evacuations. It was great fun when group two heard an air raid siren and went in an Anderson shelter. Both groups learned about guns, bombs and uniforms in the weapon room.

We all had fun on the last day of term wearing our Christmas jumpers to raise funds for this charity which then passes 100% of money raised onto Macmillan Cancer Support, Make a Wish UK, and Save the Children both in the UK and abroad. Many thanks for your kind donations.
It has been a magical Christmas term in Nursery and our little Ducklings have been very busy doing lots of lovely Christmas crafting, preparing for their very first Nativity, and posting invitations to their families. The Nursery Nativity is always a highlight of the school calender and there was hardly a dry eye in the house as our Ducklings reenacted the Christmas story in front of a packed audience of family and friends. Please click below to see lots more pictures of our fantastic Duckling adventures this term.
Last weekend we were invited to sing at our local garden centre as part of their Christmas festivities. Our choir rehearsed hard with Mr Kilkenny and kind volunteer Julie Adler, and pupils from Reception right up to Year 6 performed a selection of carols and christmas songs in front of a packed crowd, before receiving their very own baby Christmas tree each as a thank you. Well done to everyone who took part.
This year our beautiful grotto, handcrafted by Newton parents Jack and Lyndsey Ward, was more popular than ever and Santa had a very busy evening handing out presents and meeting the Newton children. We had a whole room devoted to Christmas crafting for the children, as well as games, activities, Lorna Medley's 'Frozen' facepainting and a generous supply of cupcakes from Paul Tyson, master baker and shed roof mender. Thanks to a fantastic effort from parents, friends and teachers this year's FPTA Christmas Fair took £971 for the school, an all time record.
