Year 2 visit Wagamama

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 Science

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!)


Remembrance Day 2019

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 and 4 Coding Club

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.


Year 5 at The Crick

In September, both Year 5 classes visited The Crick Institute for a day.  During their visit they enjoyed being scientists exploring reversible and irreversible changes through a variety of experiments.  A great day was had by both classes.
