Students in 'moving on' group have been talking about resilience and how to bounce back.
They made a model that bounces back to remind themselves they can cope with bad times.
The first day of school for pupils is Tuesday the 5th of September. The last day of school for pupils this half term is Thursday 26th October 2017.
We will soon be running workshops for parents and carers interested in learning how phonics are taught within school. We follow the 'Jolly Phonics' programme, which is designed to help students hear every sound in a word in order to help them read and spell it. The dates for the workshops will be put on the website shortly and a letter will be sent home too. In the meantime, this short video is great for hearing how we teach the different sounds in school. Why not watch it at home with your child and practise together!
We would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who helped out at the Christmas fayre and to all those that purchased raffle tickets.

KS5.4 have prepared and cooked their own Christmas lunch.
As part of their COPE course, members of class 5.4 have prepared and cooked their own Christmas lunch: Working out timings for turkey, peeling spuds, cutting carrots, roasting pigs in blankets and making stuffing.
'Is Christmas all about maths!?' says Sarah, who was surprised at the amount of working out the timings and cooking took.
5.4 worked really well as a team, after initially being astonished by the amount of work it would take to make lunch. Soon enough pupils were well underway with preparing the food. The timings are tight, however everything should be ready in time.
Good luck KS5.4!
UPDATE: 5.4 have cooked and served their lunch. It looked fantastic. Good job 5.4!
The Rotherham Music Service came into school today to perform a medley of Christmas themed songs.
The pupils really enjoyed the performance of some songs they were familiar with and some that they had not heard before.
Thank you to the Music Service for coming into to school and spreading Christmas cheer.
New Head Teacher - By Millie
Mr Silvester worked at North Ridge School, Doncaster before Newman School. He enjoyed school as a child but he went to an all boys school and would have liked it to be a mixed school. His favourite subject at school was History. When asked his first impression of Newman School he said “fantastic”. He wants more trips, more things for the website and to make reception look better. Mr Silvester didn’t think he would be a head teacher when he was a child. He has only wanted to be a head teacher for the last few years.
