Monday 7th October to Friday 11th October
To help support the International Walk to School October campaign, Newminster are encouraging classes to take part in a one week competition. Every child in their form class will receive one point if they have walked, biked, or scootered to school that morning. Class reps will add up the total score each morning and at the end of the week, we will see which form class has received the most points by Friday 11th October.
The winning form class per year group will win a £25 Amazon Voucher to spend on wet break resources for their class.
Good luck and get walking…..
Walk to School Matters Because….
- It’s been proven that if children do some form of exercise, especially a walk before school, do better in class because they arrived refreshed and ready to learn
- During morning peak traffic times, one in five cars are taking children to school – these are contributing to congestion, air pollution and carbon emissions
- The school run alone is responsible for generating two million tonnes of CO2 per year
We are delighted to announce that the Book Bus will be visiting our school for the very first time.
Books will be sold at a massive 70% reduction on normal retail prices so this is a great opportunity to purchase books, gifts and stationery ready for Christmas.
The bus will park outside the Key Stage 2 classrooms and students will be invited in small groups to browse the books and make purchases if they wish. Students will be told when their class will visit the bus, for your information details of these times can be seen below. If you would like to view the books for yourselves, the bus will be open before and after school, from 8.00 am to 4.00 pm. It would be lovely to see you.
Payment can be made by cash, cheque or debit card. Cheques must be made payable to “The Three Rivers Learning Trust Ltd.” and written in black ink.
Our annual school Book Fair, which showcases an exciting range of new authors and recently published books as well as old favourites, will be held in March as usual.
