The New End tradition of Christmas Strings continues in 2019. A wonderful decoration has been made by every child across the school. They look amazing!
On Wednesday, 6th November 2019 our two Year Five classes performed at The RADA Studios in London as part of the Schools’ Shakespeare Festival 2019. 5M performed “Hamlet” whist 5N performed “A Midsummer Night's Dream”. As the youngest groups performing on the evening, they impressed everyone with their interpretation of each play, their use of Shakespearean language and their acting prowess. The children were absolutely outstanding! Congratulations to each and every performer. Congratulations also to the Year 5 staff team for supporting the children in preparing and performing the plays.
Both Year Two classes visited Wagamama to explore the use of fruit and vegetables and to learn about cooking. The children were able to try different ingredients before making their own juices and noodles. A great time was had by all!
Dr Szydlo visited New End this week and shared his scientific genius and chemistry knowledge with us all. Everyone in Years 3 to 6 were thoroughly entertained! (And everyone learnt something new!)

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old: Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning We will remember them. At the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, everyone at New End fell silent to honour the people who have lost their lives in war. This year marks 100 years since the two-minute silence was first observed on Armistice Day on November 11, 1919.
Year 3 classes enjoyed their visit to Hampstead Heath in the last week of October. They enjoyed their workshop on Stone Age survival skills where they learnt how to make dens and fire. They also enjoyed completing a soil investigation.
The Year 3 and 4 Coding Club meets every Tuesday after school in the Autumn Term. It is led by Miss Thorby. This term the club are making games on Scratch. They started with one sprite (an object that will move when coded) which they coded to move around a screen to avid certain objects and collect other objects. They added a scoring system so when the sprite touched an object it get points or lose points. Now the children have a challenge to make a game where the sprite has to cross the road safely without hitting other sprites.
Children across the school have been learning about the Harvest Festival of the past. As a school we collected donations which the Heath Street Baptist Church will be sending on to Calais.
