Urdu celebration day

On Tuesday 13th March we all enjoyed a fantastic Urdu Celebration Day.

We started the day with assemblies for Years 1, 2 and 3.
The rest of the school enjoyed some dance performances, fashion shows and we all learnt about some important traditions. A big thank you to all the adults and children who worked hard to make sure that everyone enjoyed the assembly and the Urdu Exhibition.

As you may be aware, some members of the NUT (National Union of Teachers) will be taking strike action on Wednesday 28th March - to continue the campaign to protect pensions.
Only 2 of our classes will be affected and will therefore be closed to children (the 2 classes to close are: Miss Lloyd's and Miss Free's only).
For all other children, the school and nursery will be open as usual.

Consideration of local residents / parking

We would like to remind you about consideration for the school's neighbours when collecting, dropping off or parking when you come into the school.
Neighbours are still experiencing problems with some parents who continue to park across driveways.
We would like to thank you in advance for your co-operation.

Year 4 connects with the national archives.

This past week all of year 4 took part in a live video conference with experts from the national archives. We learnt about Henry VIII though the historical documents that they hold.

It was a great experience which allowed the children to connect with experts and see historical objects.

The picture of the rat was used to help explain the origins of the National Archives.

More Book week pictures

Book Week

Last week, Nightingale Primary school took part in our exciting annual Book Week.
We were visited by illustrator, Karin Littlewood and author Adam Croft, which we enjoyed very much.
Some of us were involved in drama activities too.
Every year group studied an author and made book jackets or bookmarks.
Our favourite day was World Book Day because we dressed up as our favourite book characters. The teachers certainly enjoyed the day too!

Olympic Week at Nightingale

In February, Nightingale enjoyed an exciting 'Olympic week.'
We learnt about a variety of sports which will be part of the London 2012 games.
We took part in a range of exciting activities including flag making and researching our favourite athlete.
The highlight of our week was when we were visited by Olympic sprinter Christain Malcolm. We all had a photo taken with him and we took part in a sponsored circuit activity.
