In Year Six, we have been learning about World War I and reading WWI poetry. The poems we have read include ‘In Flanders Fields’ by John McCrae and ‘The Soldier’ by Rupert Brooke. We have written our own poem called Remember Me for our Y6 Remembrance Day assembly.
Remember me for the good things in life,
The flowers, the fields and the freshness,
Before this all began.
When all was calm and always fun, but now,
The bats of midnight that once flew high,
Now lie with the spirits that wish to die,
The broken hearted,
I’ll be a spirit you cannot rid yourself of,
I’ll be the one you remember,
The one whose days are death,
The one who sacrificed their everything,
The one who I am.
When I die, I will not be dead;
By Molly, Romilly and Tali
Year 6 Residential to Red Ridge
Year 5 had a fantastic fun-filled residential trip to the Malvern Hills Outdoor Education Centre. They developed their team building skills, learned how to become more independent, stepped out of their comfort zone into their adventure zone and had an unforgettable experience on the way!
KS2 Music Day – Thursday 26th February
We started the day by watching ‘Ten Pieces’ - cinema style - in the main hall, followed by a short discussion about the pieces and choosing our favourites.
The rest of the day was spent enjoying a variety of workshops:
Exploring body percussion and movement, painting inspired by music, digital art using iPads, stop-go animation movies, dance, composition, fine art sketching instruments of the orchestra, drumming and drama.
An assembly took place at the end of the day to share what we had been doing with our groups.
We had a fantastic day!
Newburgh Knights - Lego Competition
On 17th December Newburgh sent a team of Year 5/6 children to Loughborough University to partake in a Lego competition. They competed against nine other schools who were mostly 14- 16 year olds! The children had to design, make and program a Lego robot which would complete different challenges on a board. They also had to present their unique research topic. The Newburgh Knights designed an App which would help you learn to speak another language interactively through a platform game. The team presented this idea then answered questions about the apps development.
After three rounds of the robot game the team placed 3rd out of ten teams and 1st for their research project winning themselves a trophy.
We are all very proud of the team’s dedication and attitude throughout even when things went wrong and would like to congratulate them on their success!
On Monday 20th October Newburgh Primary School was live on ITV Good Morning!

World Record Smashed!
Today 39 children and parents from Newburgh took part in a world record attempt at Warwick Castle. The challenge was to have the most parents and children reading the same book for ten minutes in the same place. There was also over 200 other children reading which meant the record was smashed!
Well done to everyone who took part.
