Weekly Roundup

13th July 2018
It has been yet another brilliant week here at school with our whole school science week ensuring that learning continues to be at the heart of all that we do. The children have had a great time finding out about healthy lifestyles and I was delighted to see so many members of the school community at the walk a mile event on Wednesday. A huge thank you to all who attended.
At the weekend the New Age Kurling team was in action in the county finals this week. They were brilliant and won the fair play award – well done all!
Wednesday also saw a musical extravaganza in the hall. Well done to all of the children who played their violins, sang so brilliantly and did so well with their recorders. It was a brilliant show much enjoyed by the audience.
On Thursday the children in Year 6 visited the Yorkshire Sculpture Park. It was an incredible experience and almost too vast to get around. They had a great final trip here at Isaac Newton!
Mr Heathcote visited on Monday and already has a great understanding of the way in which the school works. When I arrived at Isaac Newton four and a half years ago the school was in a difficult position in terms of OFSTED and as such I felt that maintaining this weekly newsletter was really important. I will be advising Mr Heathcote to produce a newsletter every two weeks. Writing a letter a week is extremely time consuming, taking time from the day to day running of the school. I am also conscious that many members of the school community do not read the newsletter each week. As such a fortnightly newsletter would maintain communication whilst ensuring that Mr Heathcote can focus fully on the quality of teaching and learning within the school.
