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.
Welcome to Newton Regis Church of England Primary School

- Flexible, high quality pre-school provision, fully integrated with the school to provide a happy transition into Reception
- A fun, theme-based curriculum to engage our young learners
- A small friendly school community
- Excellent secondary school options. We are in catchment for The Polesworth School, rated Outstanding by Ofsted
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.
Many thanks to all the parents who came to view our exhibition following our Tin Forest week. The children hae thoughly enjoyed this project as you can see by the quality of work they produced.
The Ducklings put on their wellies and ventured out on their first Welly Walk of the year. We walked to the village fireld in search of toy pictures to tick off on our toy hunt sheet. It was very windy and on occations we had to chase them, but we found them all, it was great fun! Any yes Mom's and Dad's it gae the children some ideas for their Santa list!
