Soldier’s Parade Report

 

On Wednesday 27th June 800 troops proudly paraded through the streets of Worcester. Soldiers from the Mercian Regiment, the Queen’s Royal Hussars and the Grenadier guards were clapped every step of the way to celebrate their homecoming after a 6 month tour of duty fighting in Afghanistan

Because an ex-pupil from Northwick Manor was one of the troops 12 children from year 6 were chosen to participate in this celebration. At 10.00 we were taken to Worcester city by Mrs King and Mrs Lewis. When we got there we walked to the centre of town and stood near to the Guildhall eagerly waiting for the troops to arrive.

Shortly before the parade we were asked to participate in a radio interview. This was an exciting opportunity to share our views. Some people jumped at the chance to be interviewed others were more reluctant.

After a few minutes we heard the dull throb of a drum; then they appeared. Dressed in military uniform marching in unison all the way, the parade of soldiers passed in front of us. Clapping erupted from the crowd and we all joined in. We all welcomed them home with cheers; clapping; shouting and the waving of Union Jacks.

We were all honoured to have been able to have our photograph taken with numerous soldiers as a record of the day for the school.

To conclude, we all felt proud to have been involved in such a memorable and historic event. I am sure that the children will remember that day for many years to come.

SPORTS DAY


Unbelievably the sun came out for our KS1 and KS2 Sports Day. The children paraded onto the field waving their flags. We were treated to some wonderful gymnastic and dance displays.

Monica Martin one of our Olympic torch bearers kindly brought along her torch for the children to see.

There were highly competitive races both sprint and novelty and a carousel of fun activities.

Congratulations to everyone who took part and a special mention to the children and adults who manned the stations, collected props such as egg and spoons and bean bags, organisers, and those trying to establish the medal placings, their enthusiasm throughout the day was amazing.

Thank you to Friends for providing the thirst quenching lollies and also our fab new portable PA system.

Lastly thank you to the parents who were able support the children and for those of you who would loved to have been with us, here are few photos of the days activities.

We are extremely proud of the girls who represented Northwick Manor Primary School in the Midland Region Inter School Gymnastic Competition (floor and vault).  Their outstanding performances on the floor and in vault earned them overall winners of the competition.  We would like to say a huge 'well done',  but equally as important, also say what a credit they were to school.

I know the children would like in return to thank Mrs Webber, their parents and everyone involved in their coaching for their support.

 

 

Contratulations


We are fortunate to have two amazing football sides this season and competition for places has been tight.  Our A side are top of their league having won five out of five matches.

Both sides represented our school brilliantly at the Bowbrook House School Tournament.  Our A side won their league finishing unbeaten to lift the shield, whilst the B side won three of their four games to finish equal top.

 Trucks and Child Safety (TACS) is an award winning national road safety programme. On Thursday and Friday 10 & 11th November a 38 tonne truck came to school to bring the message of life to every pupil.

Run by the DHL UK Foundation and employees of DHL, the programme is designed to raise awareness of road safety and the dangers posed by heavy goods vehicles.

Mr Steve Green and Mr Steve Randall the TACS demonstrators highlighted.
  • What exactly the driver can or cannot see when driving a truck.

This is what the driver could see. This is what was in front of him!!!!!!!!

  • How loud the engine is. Miss Callaghan sat in the cab with the engine running whilst her class shouted STOP very loudly, but she couldn't hear them.
  • How to stay well back when a vehicle is turning left at a junction.
  • What a child should do if their football runs under a truck. Answer NEVER go under a truck. ALWAYS ask an adult to help you.
  • Mr Adam Breakwell Acting Head teacher said "Thanks to DHL we can get some important safety messages into school. You can talk about road safety in assemblies and classrooms, but there is no substitute for a live demonstration. This is an extremely worthwhile programme".

PINK CUSTARD DAY

Picture 1
To celebrate the opening of our new fab school kitchen we entered the Wyvern Radio competition to be the school with the best pink custard, hoping to win a Christmas disco for the school to be
DJ'd by Wyvern.

Children dressed in red or pink clothing and the day started with Breakfast Club busily creating our pink custard posters and staff decorating the hall.


Miss Williams, sporting a stunning pink boa, was interviewed by Radio Wyvern.

 

In the kitchen the two Debbie's worked furiously on their secret custard recipe!!
 

 

Lunchtime arrived and scores of excited children collected their lunch and declared, 'the pink custard was amazing'

 


Hursty and Helen from Breakfast Wyvern were the first in the queue to taste the delicious offering. Children were interviewed so listen to the show over the rest of the term to hear the interviews. We hope to be able to put some of them on this page so keep checking!!!

Lots of photographs were taken by both the school, The Standard, Wyern Radio and Worcester News.  Some can be viewed below, but again, keep checking as we add more.

Fingers crossed we win!   Listen to Hursty and Helen from 6.00am to 10.00 am Monday to Friday on your local Radio Wyvern Station to see who wins. Follow the link below to read all about the Pink Custard Competition.
