KS1 SPORTS DAY
A fun filled morning for the KS1 children and sunshine!
Many thanks to Mrs Davies and Mrs Webber who organised the event and the army of helpers who supported them on the day and behind the scenes.
KS2 SPORTS DAY
Sadly the weather was not as kind and only Year 4 were able take part in the activities. We know children and parents are hoping we can find a date in the jam packed end of term diary to reschedule the event for Years 5 & 6.
Many thanks to DHL who kindly brought one of their articulated lorries into school to promote truck awareness. By the end of each session both children and staff were staggered to learn how many blind spots there are around a lorry. From a pedestrians point of view, never stand in front of a lorry, the driver really cant see you!!!! Be aware of the blind spots on a lorry when driving behind and beside them.
We have included a couple of web site links below which you may want to visit with your children.
Look how big the tyres are!!
Look how far the children are away from the lorry!!!!
The teacher and a pupil sat in the lorry cab could not see their friends until they had walked back to here!!
CONGRATULATIONS - BRILLIANT PERFORMANCE
On 13th March, 13 eager Year 6 pupils spent the day at Brickfields Park where they participated in a Tag Rugby Tournament. Sixteen schools from Worcester competed. During the group round, they played five matches against Gorse Hill, Saint Barnabus, Stanley Road, Dines Green and Red Hill Primary Schools. Northwick won all these games and topped their group!
The semi-final match against Pitmaston was extremely close but we persevered to triumph 3-1.
We faced Cherry Orchard Primary in the final match which was hard fought and both teams were evenly matched. Unfortunately, we lost this game 5-3.
All team members were an absolute credit to the school – showing resilience and determination – and they should feel proud of what they achieved. The team now go on to represent Worcester at Sixways on 8th May.
During our music lessons the children suggested we raised funds by holding a musical extravaganza to buy some much needed glockenspiels. As we are increasing our opportunities for pupil voice we considered this to be a wonderful idea. Mrs Kainey and Mrs Wintle kindly gave up their time to support the children who took part either by playing an instrument or singing. Many thanks to all who attended the event. Our new glockenspiels are being ordered with immediate effect and will benefit every child in the school.

Healthy Snack Recipe book £0.50p - On Sale at Lunchtimes
We have a Greening the Trees class competition and fancy dress competition whose theme is anything from nature or anti waste.
Healthy Snack recipe booklets are on sale in Hall 2 at lunchtime.
We are collecting lunchbox waste each day this week in the hope of seeing an improvement on our previous 'undercover' collection a couple of weeks ago.
We were delighted to discover that the amount of rubbish collected at lunchtime had reduced considerably. Well done everyone who is making a concerted effort to reduce waste.
The greening the trees competition was extremely successful and was incredibly difficult to decide the class winner in the year group but we did. Each class who won received a 'Golden Leaf' award to display in the classroom.
The healthy snacks and recipe booklet sale was very successful and we are able to purchase a number of recycling bins which will be placed round the school. Thank you very much for all your support.
Here are some interesting web links with child friendly activities.
