NORTH HARRINGAY WEEKLY NEWS Issue No: 18 Message from Jane Many things make me feel very privileged to be the Head Teacher of this wonderful school but I’d just like to share a few of those moments from just one day - yesterday: Reception classes going on a visit to the Natural History Museum with so many parent helpers Staff and parents giving up their own time to help transform our library Our choir performing at the O2 arena as part of Young Voices Supply teachers (covering the teachers with the choir) telling me just how much they’ve loved working with our children Pupils producing detailed geometric artwork as part of a 3 day workshop The creative talent shown in our Knitting Club Thank you for lending us your children each day! The classes with the best attendance: KS1: Tulips Class 96% KS2: Cedar Class 100% Date: 28 January 2015 School Uniform Please make sure your child comes to school wearing the correct uniform. Children are not allowed to wear clothing with logos as part of their indoor uniform. Shoes or boots must be black. Black trainers may be worn but not coloured ones. Children should not be wearing any jewellery apart from stud earrings. We do have some second hand items available—please see Mrs King if you are interested. PE Kits—Please make sure that your child has their PE kit in school every week. PE is a statutory part of the curriculum and all children are expected to take part. Plimsolls are ideal footwear and relatively cheap to buy. Absence reporting Please could parents ensure that when leaving an answerphone message to report your child being unwell, you give details of their sickness, e.g. “cold & flu”. Absences will not be authorised unless specific reasons are given. Question of the Week The answer is: “ Yes, but only when the sun shines.” What is the question?

The children discovered how Victorian inventions revolutionised travel in London through role play and gallery investigation. They also participated in creative activities and an exciting workshop where they were able to pretend to be drivers of different modes of transport. Angelika said: “It was the best trip I have ever been on and I would definitely visit again!” Mathematician of the Week We now have a Mathematician of the Week award thanks to Leelou in Tulip class's response to last week's question of the week. She said 'If maths is more important then why do we not have a mathematician of the week but we have a writer of the week?' So now her response has led to a mathematician of the week! Well done to Joe in Daffodils Class who is our first Mathematician of the Week. NHPS Fund Raising We raised £118.78 for the NSPCC on Number Day and £224.12 for the BBC’s Children in Need appeal.
