Ramadan and Summer Exams We are aware that the INA internal summer exam season falls during Ramadan this year. The public GCSE exams in 2017 will also fall during Ramadan. Subsequent year groups’ GCSE exams will also be affected. We appreciate the benefits that observing Ramadan brings to individuals and communities and the obligation to fast under Islamic tradition when a child becomes an adult. We understand that the decision to fast is very personal. We are also aware that observing the fast and late-night prayers may lead to tiredness, low energy, dehydration, reduced focus, memory or concentration. Islamic law does offer the flexibility for a person to delay or exempt themselves from fasting and late-night prayers if they believe their performance in exams could be affected. We would advise students that it is important not to spend all night praying during the exam period to avoid tiredness. If your son/daughter will be fasting during this period, you will need to write a letter to confirm it. Letter should have been sent for the attention of Mrs Chamberlain by Monday 6th June so that we have an accurate picture of numbers and are able to prepare food in appropriate quantities. Your son/daughter will be excused from lunch and will not be expected to go to the dining hall during Ramadan. Your Wisepay account will not be charged for school lunches if we receive written confirmation that your child is fasting. Our Prayer and Contemplation rooms are available during lunchtime for students who wish to pray. Please note that, during Ramadan, students are expected to participate fully in all lessons and enrichment activities as normal, including PE. Ms Spencer Vice Principal

Dear Parents and Carers

Dear Parents and Carers, I hope that you enjoyed a restful half term. I appreciate that for the students it was dominated by preparation for the exams which are now well underway. All year groups are coping well with the pressures of the exams. The results of these assessments, along with performance levels across the year, will inform the end of year levels that will be reported on your child’s summer 2 report. Now that we are into the month of Ramadan, families will be considering how they mark Eid. If you would like to request part of or a whole day of religious observance for your child, it is important that you complete a Leave of Absence Request form in advance of Eid. Thank you. With best wishes

Saturday Strech - Drama 21st May 2016

On the 21st May Isaac Newton Academy was visited by Elizabeth Guterbock, an actress and voiceover artist. Elizabeth studied a Bachelor’s degree in Philosophy from Scripps College in Claremont, California and then went for a study for a Master’s Degree in Acting for Screen from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. Students from years 7, 8, 9 and 10 came together to find out more about the opportunities available to those who study Drama and Acting. The session began as the students entered and took a seat. Instructions projected onto the board prompted them to close their eyes and, whilst listening to the atmospheric music, ‘check in with themselves’. It was apparent that some students felt a little uncomfortable and perhaps weren’t well-versed in becoming more conscious of how they are feeling. The energy in the room was transformed as the group participated in some warm-up activities to wake the students up. We played an energetic game of rubber chicken (don’t ask!) and an activity that enabled the group to learn some new things about each other. After this, students were seemingly much more comfortable and were able to voice, articulately and confidently, how they were feeling. They were able to ‘check in with themselves’. Next, Elizabeth talked us through the value of Drama and Acting and how it can contribute to any career or profession we may choose. Elizabeth highlighted that every job role will require you to speak publically and communicate with others, and that Drama is a valuable way to establish and foster those skills. It was very heart-warming to see that every student in the room agreed that their learning in Drama has made them feel more comfortable and better prepared for situations where they have had to speak in front of others. She shared with us some of the career paths within the field, but articulated that careers after a Drama degree are not limited to jobs in the field and that many professions value the subject: • • • • • • • •

Actor/Performer – in film, theatre, television, voice-over, video games Teacher/Professor Broadcasting/Production careers Drama Administration Theatre in Education Dramaturgy (research of historical and political contexts for productions) Director - in film, theatre, television, voice-over, video games Producer - in film, theatre, television, voice-over, video games

Elizabeth then detailed some of the transferable skills that she has established throughout her career in Drama and acting: • • • • • • • • •

Improvisation skills – on stage and in life! Ability to focus for long periods of time Independent work skills Group work skills Maths/accounting skills Study skills Memorisation skills Time management and organisational skills Body awareness/heath awareness

The group then participated in an exploration of Jaques Le Coq’s seven levels of tension; an activity that experiments with the different states of mind and body. Although this was a very abstract concept, the students threw themselves into the activity and through their participation learnt a lot about how our physical projection and body language can communicate so much to others. We talked about interview situations and how important it is to be aware of and in control of our physical presentation. As the session drew to a close we talked about auditioning, but not limited to the conventional or literal meaning of the word. Of course, Elizabeth talked to us a lot about what it felt like to present a scene or monologue in front of others, but also talked about the different ways we ‘audition’ in life. For example, we suggested that the looming end of year exams are a great example of an audition in that we are judged and evaluated in light of our ‘performance’ in the exams. This was really helpful for the students and they began to realise how ‘checking in with themselves’ could benefit them in lots of different scenarios and contexts, the end of year exams being one of them! The session concluded with an activity in relaxation and mindfulness and the students were asked to focus their energy to different parts of their body. They were taught that if we can engage and focus our feet, our breath, our head and our hearts then we will be ready for any audition, no matter how big or small.

When asked the question ‘do you think the session was helpful?’ some students said: “Yes, I found checking in with myself a really useful idea” “Yes, it opened by eyes to the paths available to somebody studying Drama” When whether the session had made them consider studying this subject at university some students said: “Yes, it’s really important to study something you love” “Yes, it has seriously made me considering pursuing Drama as a career”

Jack Petchey Speakout Challenge

The end of last half term saw Isaac Newton Academy hosting the Redbridge final of the Jack Petchey Speakout Challenge. This prestigious public speaking competition was judged by a variety of local businesspeople and public figures and was attended by approximately 200 students, family and teachers from Redbridge schools, all of whom were impressed by the facilities and buildings at INA. The Academy was represented by Halema Anjum with her speech entitled ‘The Point’ and Simran Larr, who gave a speech about social media entitled ‘Likes or Liked?’ Both girls spoke eloquently and passionately about their subjects in a competition that was of an exceptionally high standard. The Redbridge final is the culmination of a series of workshops and competitions that Year 10 students have been participating in to develop their public speaking skills. We are incredibly proud of all of our students who have taken part in public speaking and offer them our congratulations.

YEAR 7 CRICKET V MAYFIELD The year 7 team had their first game on Wednesday. Due to the weather conditions on the day the game was played in Mayfield’s sports hall. Considering this was the boys' first game, and that it was played with modified rules, they put in a good performance. Hammad Khan (captain) won the toss and elected to bowl first. The team bowled and fielded well, with some consistent overs from bowlers such as Zain Islam. The team had a total of 64 to chase, and, with some good batting from the likes of Sudais Khan, it looked like the team could exceed the target. However, the Mayfield team stepped up their bowling to stop the run rate of the team and ended up winning by thirty runs. It was a great first effort by the boys!

Girls Can... This is a brand new initiative for Isaac Newton Academy looking to raise participation levels of females in sport. This will run every Tuesday at the start of lunch and we will have special guest teachers from around the school each week to help raise awareness and act as positive role models.

This is a famous puzzle based on the show "Let's make a deal". The host, Monty Hall, offers you a choice of three doors. Behind one is a sports car, but behind the other two are goats. After you have chosen one door, he reveals one of the other two doors behind which is a goat (he wouldn't reveal a car). Now he gives you the chance to switch to the other unrevealed door or stay at your initial choice. You will then get what is behind that door. You cannot hear the goats from behind the doors, or in any way know which door has the prize. Should you stay, or switch, or doesn't it matter?

Concen Roberto Casula is a pioneer in robotic-enhanced and minimal access heart surgery at Imperial College. Casula is the only practicing robotic cardiac surgeon in the UK. He graduated at Padova University Medical School, Italy, and then trained in the UK in Cardiothoracic Surgery and Thoracic Organs Transplantation. Casula has operated on several thousand heart patients and peformed the first corony heart bypass without opening the chest. Robotic-enhanced surgery requires total and sustained concentration. During surgery, the surgeon sits at a robotic console and is able to see inside the chest through a tiny 3D camera. The camera images are magnified 15 times. The surgeon operates 2 joy-sticks and his/her movements are then reproduced with the highest level of accuracy by the instruments previously inserted into the chest. ‘Robotic-enhanced and minimal access cardiac surgery provides a huge number of benefits for the patient including just a small amount of scaring, less pain and use of pain killers, a reduced chance of post-operative infection and blood transfusion, and importantly, quicker mobilisation speeding along a good physical and emotional recovery.’ Roberto Casula
