Dear Parents and Carers, This week the Year 8s have enjoyed their Maths Relay, the Year 11s have been entertained by a professional theatre company’s performance of A Christmas Carol, and a number of Year 10s and 11s were given the opportunity to receive some mentoring from staff from the Department of Work and Pensions. More details can be found in this week’s edition of the INA newsletter… Parents of Year 8s may have be told by their son/daughter of a wonderful opportunity to apply for one of 6 places on next summer’s Phillips Exeter Summer School. Please read the article that follows and attend the meeting at school next week for more information. I am delighted to introduce you to Sophia Foot, our new Art and Design Technology and Curriculum Technician at INA:

Sophia Foot, Art and Design Technology and

Curriculum Technician I am really excited to start my new job as Art and Design Technician at Isaac Newton Academy. I am looking forward to learning new skills and meeting new colleagues and students. I spent my childhood in Enfield Town, North London, with my parents and two younger siblings, during which I spent a lot of time going to museums such as the Tate Modern and National Gallery, which gave me a great appreciation for Art and Design. After leaving school I studied a degree in Graphic Design at the University of Southampton where I improved my skills in digital art as well as experimenting with print, photography and textile techniques. When I finished my degree I was offered a unique opportunity to go to Hong Kong for a year to teach English in a local kindergarten. I enjoyed the warm weather, food and culture in Hong Kong. Since returning to England I have worked supporting special needs children and as a technician at a School in Muswell Hill. I am really impressed by Isaac 2 December 2016 Secondary Newsletter


Newton Academy’s facilities. In my first week of being here I have already learnt how to pewter cast and use the laser cutter. I hope to continue learning alongside supporting the students learning new skills. With best wishes,

On Monday 21st of November a group of students from Years 8 and 9 took the stage of The Shaw Theatre to perform an abridged version of Shakespeare’s classic, A Midsummer Night’s Dream. We also had the pleasure of bringing along two year 10 GCSE Drama students who skilfully designed the lighting and sound for our performance. We spent the morning preparing for our performance with a technical and dress run and then we spent some time relaxing before out big moment- we even had a go at our very own mannequin challenge! The performance was a success! It was great to see weeks of late night, gruelling rehearsals and line-learning come to fruition. Our performance was fast-paced and we managed to tell what is a very complicated story in a funny and entertaining way! “They were terrific – it was fast, funny and best of all, beautifully spoken.” Lucy Heller, Chief Executive at ARK “It was an experience I will always remember!” Sanaan Hafeez, 9I *Please note that participants of the Shakespeare Schools Festival enrichment are no longer required to attend club on Monday or Wednesday.

Debating – Nov 26th 2016

On 26th November, INA welcomed Sayeqa Islam from Ark and Kelvin Amin, who is a History undergraduate from King’s College London University. They delivered a session all about debating, the skills involved and the opportunities that can come from high level debating both in schools, at university and in the wider community. The session was attended by a group of year 9 students, who all had some vested interest in debating. Sayeqa and Kelvin started the session by introducing the topic of debating and sharing some of their past experiences, this included places they have competed around the world and competitions they have competed in. This was followed by Kelvin explaining how debating has helped in his degree, and what he hopes to gain from his debating experiences at university. Next the group had some discussion based around what debating actually was and where we may have seen it previously. The group came up with some fantastic answers. There was some interesting discussion around the recent heated debates between Donald Trump and Hilary Clinton. The group was next split into 2, with a group going with either Sayeqa or Kelvin. In the smaller groups the students learned about what skills were needed to be an excellent debater. This included some speaking games, one of which proved very popular and lots of fun (apples or oranges?). Once the students had practised and honed their skills, the debating began. The two groups were split into Proposition (For) and Opposition (Against); they debated on 2 different topics. The first group debating whether Rap music should be banned, which the other group debating whether violent video games should be banned. The debates were well thought out and even got quite heated (obviously issues the students felt passionately about). 2 December 2016 Secondary Newsletter


All in all, the event was a success with both the students and guests saying just how much they had enjoyed the day. It was definitely helpful for the students and will allow them to develop the skills they learned on the day and possibly become expert debaters themselves. Student feedback: “Knowing how to debate properly will help with our Harkness lessons.” “It has given me more confidence to speak up about my opinions.” “It has opened my eyes to what you can do with debating, you can travel all over the world if you’re good enough.” “It has made me consider getting into debating at school.”

There will be a separate assembly for each year group. Please note the dates and times as follows:

Praise and Recognition

At INA, we aim to provide a stimulating, challenging and rewarding learning environment which supports learning, celebrates achievement and encourages everyone.

Merits It is the start of another year so we are restarting the Form Merit competition. Each merit you gain will increase your individual total and also your form’s overall total.

Good Deed Feed Ms Arrowsmith: Abdi Mahamuud in 7C helped me bring my stuff into the front of the building this week, as I was struggling to open the door and carry everything in. Ms Alibhai: I’d like to nominate Alfie Southall 10T who was particularly welcoming to an interview candidate during their interview lesson. In my mind he really role modelled that character element of our vision statement; that it is not enough to leave us with fantastic grades if you don’t also leave us with kindness, warmth and humanity. In a moment when it would have been easy not to ‘step up’ he did so, and completely independently. Mr Healey: Noah Hawthorne 9A, Jayden Deane 9I, Hassan Islam 9I, Sinthuram Seethamohan 9A have all helped out 2 weeks in a row to help coach and develop the Year 7/8 Girl’s Handball team. Ms Lapish: Hussein Yonis 7N kindly retrieved a basketball from under the stairs, after realising that another student had borrowed it and not returned it to its rightful place. Thank you Hussein for being so vigilant and helpful. Mr Beattie: Aqsa Bano Rafiq 11C has done the scoring for all the Handball tournaments as far in her own time. Ms Malik: Not a student but a wonderful teacher - Mr Dewal - who changed a flat tyre on my car so I could leave on time to pick my children up from school! Mr Wilson: Chloe Bonnici – Empathy and Sociability. Chloe has recently shown some really wonderful levels of support for her peers and demonstrated the importance of offering advice, guidance and support to those who need it. Wonderful to see!

I am writing to inform you about the opportunity we are offering students to purchase a GCSE Science Revision guide for their GCSE course scheduled for examination in 2018. During years 10 and 11, students will be following the AQA Science GCSE course either through the combined science or triple science route. The textbooks we have chosen, published by Collins, cover the topics that are clearly labelled by grade, embed problem-solving and reasoning, and have been designed to build fluency and nurture confidence in GCSE – style practice questions. We would like to offer students the opportunity to purchase the textbook so that they can take a copy home, annotate where needed and complete additional learning independently throughout the course. The textbooks will be available in the school shop section, please ensure you select the correct book choice based on the student’s option choice. Payments should be paid via Wisepay which can be accessed through the schools website. Combined award science students will only need one book that covers all the content required for their two GCSE’s in science and this is given at a subsidised price of £7.65. For triple science students it is recommended that they purchase a textbook for each of the science subjects (Biology, Chemistry and Physics) and will therefore require three books again subsidised at a total of £10.20. Should you wish to purchase a textbook but need financial assistance please contact me to discuss this. Students whose payments have been received will be given the textbook at the beginning of the week following payment. If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact the school on 0208 911 6666 and ask to be directed to Mr Clift-Matthews. Yours sincerely,

The Dalai Lama The Dalai Lama is the spiritual leader of the Tibetan Buddhists. Following

the Chinese invasion of Tibet in the 1950s, many Tibetans took to the streets demanding an end to Chinese rule. The Chinese People’s Republic troops crushed the revolt and thousands were killed. The Dalai Lama approached the situation with prudence and caution. He considered all the possibilities and risks involved before suggesting a way forward. The Dalai Lama is a man of peace so he advocated a non-violent response. He told the people of Tibet ‘With Truth, Justice and Courage as our weapons, we Tibetans will eventually prevail in regaining freedom for Tibet’. In 1989 the Dalai Lama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his non-violent struggle for the liberation of Tibet. He now devotes his life to the promotion of compassion, forgiveness, tolerance, contentment and selfdiscipline. He is committed to the development of religious harmony and understanding among the world’s major religions.

nt that determines to what end it will be put.”

Dalai Lama

Prudence To think through carefully and consider all aspects of a situation or issue before taking action.

Behaviours Being cautious, being tactful, being trustworthy and discrete (not turning someone’s personal information or feelings into gossip), thinking ahead and planning a course of action, taking care of valuable items, being aware of risks and dangers.


Top tips

• Devise a one, five and ten year plan for yourself. • Research universities and the courses that you are currently interested in. • Consider the way you speak to people and the language you use. How do you think it makes them feel? • Practise being kind to those around you. • Save up for something worthwhile or important.

Parents • Start a discussion with your son/ daughter about GCSEs, A-levels, University courses and future careers. • Discuss a situation with your son/ daughter when you acted prudently and a situation when you didn’t and talk about the impact of each response. • Talk to your son/daughter about how you manage the family income and outgoings.

THIS WEEK IN P.E……………… AT INA YEAR 7 AND 8 HANDBALL TEAM COME SO CLOSE! On Monday the Year 7 and 8 handball team played in their first tournament together at the Redbridge handball championships. The boys got off to a dominant start, beating Mayfield 6-0 in their first match. Game 2 was against Palmer’s 2nd team, which was an end to end game in which we shared the points after a 3-3 draw. The last group match was against Oaks Park, where we had to win to ensure our progress into the semi-finals. We went 3-1 up, but Oaks Park fought back to bring it back to 3-3. But with the last shot of the game in the dying seconds, Jack scored with a thunderous jump shot from range to give us a 4-3 win. In the semi-finals we played against Palmer’s 1st team. The boys rose to the occasion and it was a comfortable 3-1 victory for us, with us controlling the game throughout. We headed into the final against Chadwell Heath. It was an intense battle, with both teams displaying some amazing Handball. It was a back and forth battle, with Zain equalising to make it 1-1, then Ramel equalising to make it 2-2. Chadwell then went 4-2 up, but Jahiem brought us back into the game with a powerful jump shot breaking through their defence to make it 4-3. However the boys ran out of time and the final score was 4-3. It was a great display from the team which consisted of: Jack Lavin, Zain Ali, Jahiem Chambers, Sudais Khan, Ahmed Marziakhall, Miguel Paisley, Pritom Borhan Uddin, Haider Ali Rafaq and Ramel Shakespeare. Goalscorers were: Jack, Zain, Jahiem, Sudais, Ahmed and Ramel. The player of the tournament was the captain Jack, whose effort was outstanding defensively, and offensively he also scored some great jump shots from range.

Meet the Prefects

The Prefects at Isaac Newton Academy are at the heart of our school life. The new cohort of Prefects has recently started their training programme and will officially take over from the existing Year 11 Prefects in January. There were nearly 60 students who interviewed to be Prefects. During the interview process, the overall quality of the applicants was highly impressive. After a difficult decision-making process, 26 Prefects were eventually selected.

Year 11 Interviews

In order to support students with making informed decisions about their post-16 choices, each student will have a 1-2-1 interview with a member of SLT, Mr Singh, or Ms McNamee (one of our governors who has expertise in this field). Interviews will take place all day on Friday 9th December when students are not involved in their mock examinations. Each meeting will be approximately 20 minutes. Students will be advised of when the interviews will take place by letter and parents will be informed that the letter has been issued by text. The interviews will only involve the student and the member of staff. This is to support the students in transitioning into being fully independent learners. As we are sure you can appreciate, logistically arranging the meetings for all of Y11 is a large and complex operation. Therefore it will not be possible to amend the meeting times. The discussion at the interviews will centre on the following questions: •

What university courses or equivalent are you considering? Will this impact on your current career aspirations?

What courses have you considered studying at KS5? Why? What research have you completed around other possible choices?

Are you intending to stay at INA? Have you submitted an application?

What is your plan for KS5 if your ideal situation does not occur? What steps have you taken to research your secondary plan?

Are you considering the EPQ? Why? If yes, what would your area of research be?

We trust that parents and carers will support students by ensuring that they are fully prepared for these important meetings by discussing the above questions with them in advance of the meeting. To support with research we would recommend the following websites: We hope that this meeting will be a great opportunity for our Y11 students to feel excited about their future decisions and we look forward to supporting them during this time.
