1st October 2021
October has arrived and another Friday has arrived in the land of Northaw. The school has been a hive of activity over the last week, Pupils are all so well embedded into our school routines and engaged in their learning, which is so pleasing to see.
One of the wonderful things about Northaw is how friendly everybody is: walking down through the school, you are guaranteed to be met by warm greetings and smiles by pupils and staff. It is these small acts of generosity that make Northaw such a great place to be.
A particular highlight for me was being visited by Isabella from Apples and Pears class on Wednesday after-noon. Miss Barker brought Isabella to me with one of our new positive cards which read “I am going to put a big smile on your face”. The class were talking about being thankful and had to draw something they were thankful for. It was an absolute honour that Isabella has chosen me to draw! Not only was this such a thoughtful gesture, the drawing was of top quality too—it was just like looking in the mirror. This was a real cheerful moment in my afternoon and certainly did put a smile on my face. Thank you, Isabella!
We are looking forward to being able to reunite as a whole school community for our first visit to church on Monday morning. We will be walking pupils to and from the church, so please remember that the normal morning routine will apply on Monday. As a reminder, parents will not be able to join us at the moment but we hope this will change for future.
Wishing you all a brilliant weekend.
