VISIT TO THE HIVE
Some of our keenest readers had an opportunity to visit the Hive in its opening week. They explored the children's section and listened to a story read by the Chancellor of the University of Worcester, Professor David Green.

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.
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.
