Essex Fire and Police workshops, with Year 6

 

To enhance our PSHE curriculum we have organised for 'Essex Fire and Police' to deliver an education programme to our Year 6 class and to teach about knife crime and cyber safety.

 

The aim of this programme is to deliver important messages about the dangers of knife crime and covered a number of important topics, including: joint enterprise, custodial sentences, and the adolescent brain and decision making. We want children to understand the consequences of carrying/using a knife, understand the implications of joint enterprises and to investigate ways of addressing peer pressure.

 

The aims for cyber safety session were to focus on the hidden dangers of social media, online gaming, online predators, cyberbullying, and identity theft. We want children to understand the risks of being online, understand what cyberbullying is, the impact and consequences of online bullying, understand what an online scam is, how to keep information safe and to understand how to stay safe online when using social media, games, and websites.

National Girl's Football Day

International Women's Day

8th March 2024

 

Noak Bridge Primary School are today celebrating National Girl’s Football Day. #LetGirlsPlay is the country’s biggest ever football session and we are delighted that we can support this important initiative. This day recognises the importance of girls playing football and to raise awareness about the barriers that are still present, which can stop girls from playing the sport. Through supporting this, we hope we can play our part in achieving equal opportunities in football.

Throughout the day, every girl in the school will have the opportunity to play football with their class. In addition to this, at lunch time, we will hold an ‘only girls’ football session.

Because of the opportunity to play today, I am hoping that some girls will want to start playing football. Below is a link that you can use to find local football sessions if your child is interested.

World Book Day 2024!

We had an enjoyable day which involved entering the 'Design a book token' competition, joined a national online 'Footy Quiz', joined an live session with an author, took part in a book swap or the children were gifted a book and shared reading with other classes - some Year 6's also read with the children in pre-school.

It was a wonderful day.

Noak Bridge is a TPP School!

 

In the Autumn term 2023 we completed training all staff in the 9 'advanced' elements of 'Trauma Perceptive Practice' (TPP).

This has been a lengthy process which has taken around 2 years to disseminate the detailed information to staff through staff meetings, training sessions and INSET days.

 

We would like to thank all our staff for their dedication to understanding and improving the lives of the children who attend Noak Bridge.

Live Author Literacy Session

 

On Thursday 1st February 2024, across the school, we joined authors Swapna Haddow (Key Stage 1) and Steve Camden (Key Stage 2) to learn all about world-building, an essential component of story creation and storytelling that will help pupils develop their understanding of place, character and narrative. In this interactive event, pupils had the opportunity to create a brand-new, fictional world live with Steven. Together with pupils from across the UK, we had the chance to imagine a magical street where a collaborative story begins and will challenge pupils to ask who could be behind each front door.

 

Supporting The Little Princess Trust

 

Naisha, Year 4, didn’t realise that her own hair could help make a wig for a poorly child, who had lost their own hair due to cancer or other medical conditions. 

So she decided to chop a whopping 13 inches off her beautiful hair! She is awfully proud of herself for being able to help.

Everyone at Noak Bridge is also incredibly proud of your kindness and generosity - well done! 

 

The Little Princess Trust provides real hair wigs, free of charge, to children and young people who have lost their own hair through cancer treatment or to other conditions such as Alopecia.

The charity is also one of the largest funders of childhood cancer research in the UK.

The Little Princess Trust relies solely on the generosity of its wonderful supporters who help the charity give hair and hope to so many children and young people with cancer each year.

Benjamin, Year 6, has been playing for Perry Street FC as goalkeeper and has been playing incredibly well and received 'man of the match' for several matches consecutively - well done!

NSPCC - Speak Out, Stay Safe

 

In December 2023 class teachers led assemblies across the school produced by the NSPCC to talk to children about the different types of abuse, that abuse is never a child’s fault (KS2), how children can be hurt by others (KS1) and that children have the right to be kept safe and to know who a child can talk to if they need help.

The assemblies also made children aware of the Childline number and how they can access support.

 

Starting the new year with positive news

 

A good way to start the new year is with some good news through helping others and we would like to share that we managed to raise £169.95 for Children in Need in November!

Thank you for your support and kind donations.

Cooking within English

Year 4

 

As part of our English lessons, we learnt how to write a recipe. Our teachers showed us a basic muffin recipe and we then researched how we could adapt it and add in extra ingredients to make it our own. Last week, we wrote our recipes and created our own recipes cards which Miss Topham then sent home. They all sounded delicious and some children even brought some muffins in that they had made at home.

William the Conkerer!

 

Robin, Year 2, made this fantastic conker snake and has named him William the Conkerer. 

The large snake is made of 100 conkers and is 217cm long. The baby snake is called Timmy and he is just 10 conkers, 22 cm long.

Robin collected the conkers from a Horse Chestnut tree in Noak Bridge and from one outside his dentist in Billericay. 

Robin's Grandad drilled the holes in the conkers. Robin threaded each conker onto the string with a large plastic needle.  He gave it a forked tongue and googly eyes.

Noak Bridge Hedgehogs

 

Last Tuesday Fern and Robin helped to rescue a hedgehog within Noak Bridge village.

The hedgehog was out during the day - which is not a good sign as they are nocturnal. He/she looked quite small and he/she was in the road.

The family phoned South Essex Wildlife Hospital in Orsett and they said to please bring the hedgehog to them.

They have about 80 hedgehogs in their care at the animal hospital. They need to weigh 600g by December so they have enough fat to survive their winter hibernation. 

We hope he/she makes a speedy recovery.

Hazel, year 3, took part in a running event. Well done!

Fallon, year 1, was ‘warrior of the week’ at Ju Jitsu. Well done!
