Homework blog update

Just a quick update regarding the Newdale website’s homework blog. After investigating the issue further, there is an issue where the website hasn’t been loading correctly now which has effected the network. The password provided is correct so apologies to anybody who is struggling to upload. We have logged the error with the website provider and await further clarification.

Apologies over any confusion with this.

Many thanks,

Careers week in year 5!

Thank you Ali for talking to our year 5s! They loved learning all about Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and how you can help people overcome their anxiety and phobias. We will definitely be taking on some of your top tips about being aware of our thoughts compared to our feelings and how we can have a positive impact on our mental health if we face our anxieties! It is a truly inspiring career choice and one we knew very little about before your visit.

Healthy Lifestyles Week

Next week is a very exciting week at Newdale, Healthy Lifestyles Week! During this week the children will be carrying out a range of sporting activities each day. For this week only, we ask that children wear their PE kit each day so they are prepared. This is for all children from reception to Year 6.

Carding Mill Valley Geography Fieldwork

Thank you to all the staff and parent volunteers that helped us to run our Geography visit today. We were so lucky with the weather and managed to study three sites along the valley (upper course, middle course and lower course). Although lunch was somewhat disrupted by some rather confident sheep, hopefully the children will remember the changes in the stream. We tested the velocity of the water by timing a ping pong ball along a set distance and made measurements across the channel. Children had a go at field sketches and annotated how the river had affected the landscape, and in some cases how humans had impacted the environment.


Year 5 Carding Mill Valley Trip

Good afternoon all,

Putting a last call out for volunteers! We would ideally like 2 more adults to accompany us on our trip to Carding Mill Valley – Tuesday 7th June 2022. We will be on the coach at 9:15am and return to school at roughly 3pm.

There will be some moderate walking on a fairly steep gravel path and helping children to sketch the landscape around them – no expertise on rivers needed. There are toilets on site and some break times between activities.

Please email the year 5 team at newdale.year5team@taw.org.uk if you are interested.

Thank you,

Year 5 team.
