Welcome from the Head

It is my great pleasure and privilege as the Head to welcome you to The New School. Founded in 1992, we have a consistently strong reputation for academic excellence and a caring, familial ethos. We pride ourselves on offering the very best introduction to school life, especially during those early years when key skills, attitudes and learning foundations are laid for life.

🧦Anti-bullying Week began with Odd Socks Day and a special assembly for The New School pupils.
🧦Everyone took off their shoes and showed off their different socks in celebration of the fact that we are all unique! 
🧦In their PSHE lessons, the children have been learning more about what bullying is and what to do if they feel they (or others) are being bullied.

✍️Year 2 have produced these amazing posters as part of their English work on information texts! 
📚They used non-fiction books to research an Ancient Egyptian topic of their choice, then practised their handwriting by turning their notes into a neat draft. 
⌨️They also used ICT to select fonts and images for their posters.
😀Well done Year 2!

💚This week Nursery children have had an exciting visit from ‘Stick Man’. 
💙They have been on a stick hunt and collected sticks from the garden to make a cosy new home for Stick Man’s family. 
💜The children have especially enjoyed painting with sticks, comparing sizes of sticks, measuring using sticks, floating objects down piping in the water tray and exploring objects that float and sink. 
🧡They listened to the Stick Man story and watched the short film. They then discussed the job of an author and an illustrator and explored other favourite stories written by Julia Donaldson. 
💛After reading the story, the children discussed members of their family who are special to them, drew pictures of their family, shared memories that they have had together, and discussed their feelings towards loved ones.

🏊🏼‍♀️The first group of Year 2 swimmers enjoyed their second weekly lesson in Exeter School’s wonderful indoor swimming pool this week.

🥽Feedback from the children and staff has been very positive and we look forward to offering this opportunity to other classes later in the year.

🔬World Science Day was the highlight of the week. 
⚗️We had a special assembly all about science and famous scientists, while the teachers turned their classrooms into interactive ‘labs’. 
🧪Children from each class were then put into mixed age groups and had the opportunity to explore exciting activities, visiting each lab in turn. 
🥼At playtimes, the children enjoyed making giant bubbles outside and some even got the chance to sit inside a bubble!
