Head Lice I would like to make parents aware that we have had an occurrence of head lice in the secondary school. Please note that head lice is a common condition in children and young people. The school nurse has advised that parents check their child’s hair for head lice and treat accordingly with an over the counter product to treat head lice and nits. Once the initial treatment has been applied, it is recommended that you repeat the treatment again in 7 days. Please do not hesitate to contact the school if you have any concerns.

Dear Parents and Carers,

T

here have been several visitors to the school this week. The MFL department invited an actor to give a one-woman interactive show in French of The Three Musketeers for Year 7 students on Thursday. Meanwhile the Year 8s were being entertained by Anthony Glenn’s oneman Shaking Up Shakespeare production. Both shows were really lively and engaging and taught the students a lot. Many thanks to Ms Hermolle and Mr Knowles respectively for organising the visits. Some of our Year 8 and 7 Mathematicians took part in the UK Maths Challenge this week. We await the results with interest. On Tuesday next week our new Head of English, Ms Curley, joins INA. Below is a message from her: “I am extremely excited to join the team at Isaac Newton Academy and feel very fortunate to have the chance to help design and shape the new KS4 Curriculum. I am very passionate about English and have a special interest in teaching English Language to GCSE and A-Level standard. To date, I have had a very interesting and varied career. I am currently leading the GCSE course in an ‘Outstanding’ school in South East London and previously to that, I was Assistant Head of English in an all boys’ Catholic School in New Zealand. I remember my first assembly in New Zealand- all 1500 students (some of the ‘boys’ were over 6ft 5) stood up and simultaneously and completed a traditional war dance called the Hakka! This was some experience and is something I will never forget! I love travelling and have spent time in many countries in South East Asia and India. Last summer, I travelled to Sierra Leone to help train student teachers in rural villages. Unfortunately, this trip was cut short as there was an outbreak of Ebola in the country. Since this trip, I have been fundraising to help the country get back on their feet - I am also involved in designing a new English Curriculum for the training institutions." With all best wishes,

>>> News BRIDGES Mentoring Wednesday 13th May

The second BRIDGES mentoring session takes place on Wednesday 13th May from 1:45-3:45pm. All students will be given a fifteen minute 1:1 coaching session with their BRIDGES mentor. This is an important opportunity for students to reflect on how they have developed or strengthened their BRIDGES dispositions since the last BRIDGES mentoring session, to discuss the dispositions they consider to be their strengths and the ones they need to work on further. Students will leave school after they have had lunch at around 1:20pm and should go straight home. They are not permitted to go to local shops. They should return to school for their allocated session. Students with appointments at 1:45pm or 2:00pm may wait for their appointment in the hall. We are unable to supervise other students as all staff are BRIDGES mentors and will be engaged in mentoring sessions throughout the afternoon. Parents are not required at the sessions but will be given feedback on how their son or daughter’s BRIDGES skills are progressing towards the end of the year. Please note that enrichment will be cancelled on this day. Jo Spencer Vice Principal

Optometry Saturday Stretch On Saturday 25th March we welcomed Jayna, an undergraduate student studying Optometry at Manchester University, to INA to deliver a Saturday Stretch session. A group of 19 students were involved in this very engaging and exciting session.

In the first half of the session we learnt what Optometry was and how applicable it is to everyday life. Jayna explained that it is a three year course and then you must complete a one year Pre-Reg to successfully qualify as an optometrist. She then also explained in much detail the things optometrists have to do on a day to day basis and gave us an idea of the sorts of skills that will be required to carry out these tasks. In the second session we completed a range of optical illusions and experiments with our eyes which we all found intriguing! In addition to this we watched some brilliant clips of humorous eye songs and social life at university.

choices after you qualify as an optometrist as you could work in high street practices, hospitals, open your own branch, work abroad and then also complete some further studies and research work. There are great things to specialize in such as glaucoma surgery, cataract surgery or even becoming an ophthalmologist (an eye doctor). You would work mainly in a treatment room in hospitals. You would usually work between 37 and 40 hours a week, which may include some evening shifts. You could decide to specialise in pediatrics, low vision and abnormal vision correction. If you were based at a hospital, you may be involved in some laboratory work. You would perhaps also have opportunities to travel to local health centers and community clinics. A huge well done to everyone that attended for taking part in the captivating optical illusions and eye experiments. A special thank you to Ushna Asim and Aqsa Hassan for doing a video interview with Jayna; they will be using the really useful information from the stretch for their own presentation on Optometry during form time.

Lastly we would like to thank Jayna for delivering such an insightful session, for giving us a better idea of studying at university and also encouraging a future generation of optometrists!

Jayna talked us through universities that Optometry could be studied at as well as the grades that would be required at ‘A level’ to get in to study on the course. We were then shown a really catchy video made by the University of Manchester describing and explaining features of the course and why it is so valuable to study Optometry. Further to this we were told about opportunities beyond the degree, as you would have a guaranteed job once graduating in Optometry. She thoroughly explained the

Planning your INA revision Planning Your Revision – Top tips

Exams are not about remembering everything and favour those with a good memory. They are about showing what you have understood. But don’t worry if you feel that you haven’t understood everything from your course. There are bound to be areas of uncertainty. In the run up to exams it is better to consolidate what you have learned rather than worry about what you haven’t learned.

Revision strategy Given that exams are about what you understand not what you can remember your revision strategy should be based on pulling ideas together then making links and connections between them. Revision gives you the opportunity to round off a course and get your thoughts in order.

Allow enough time

There is no set formula for working out when to start revising. It depends on so many things. How much time you have? How much material you have to review and your own personal way of studying? If you are reading this, then you are probably thinking about revision and therefore now is probably a good time to start.

Key points for effective revision • Get hold of past exam papers. This confirms the format of the paper and familiarises you with the language and style. Look to see if the exam paper has a structure which corresponds with your course. Is it divided into sections or themes? This information is important in guiding your revision strategy. • Ask your teachers for advice and guidance. She or he may direct you to selected areas of your course. If you have a lot of course material you might use this advice along with evidence from past papers, to help you judge which sections of your course you are going to concentrate on. • Sort out your course materials. Group or file it by section or sub-topic. Include notes, handouts, photocopies, essays, and coursework. Try and limit the number of sections or sub-topics to seven. If handouts or notes seem to cross between sections you may find that you have to mark up documents by using highlighter pens, where each colour represents a section or sub-topic. Or you may have to photocopy the document so a copy can be included in each relevant section. • Draw up a timetable. Identify how many hours you have for revision between now and the exam. Divide the hours by the number of sections or sub-topics. If each section or sub-topic on your course carries equal weighting in the exam then you need to allow equal time to revise each part. • Identify the central issues with each sub-topic. You may have to ask yourself fundamental questions about the topics in order to find these. For example you may have to ask, what is this part of the course about? Or, what is the point of X or Y? • Make condensed notes on the central issues. Work with each topic at a time to reduce the amount of information so they concentrate only on the main themes. • Summarise your notes onto a single sheet of paper or index card. This creates a highly portable revision system which you can carry with you in the weeks and days before the exam. The purpose of making summaries is to extract the essence of a section or sub-topic and turn it into a manageable format. Your summaries could be bullet points, diagrams, flowcharts or other images depending on which format works best for your subject or personal preference.

16  INA Newsletter


• Attempt as many past exam questions as possible. Don’t write out a full answer but spend 5-7 minutes jotting down the main points, just as you will in the real exam. Use your notes to check for anything you may have missed. • Work with other students where possible. This is so you can share useful strategies and to give mutual support. Revise by testing or quizzing each other on key sections.

Practical Tips Before the exam • Mark the date, time and venue of the exam clearly on your calendar. • Try and give yourself a break from revision the night before the exam. Relax, watch television or go for a walk. • Get a good night’s sleep On the day of the exam • Allow enough time to get to the exam. • Think positively. This is a chance to show what you have learned. • Have a clear strategy for tackling the paper. In the exam room • Scan the paper for the questions you have prepared for. Mark them. • Tackle your best question first. This helps to get you started. • Note the time you start writing by each question and stick to the time you have allocated beforehand for each answer. • Make a brief plan for essay type answers before you begin. • Tackle all the questions. • Jot down quickly any new thoughts that occur to you while you are writing. • Do your best to write legibly. Cross out any rough notes with a straight line. What do the questions on the exam paper mean? Look at the keywords below and then check your understanding using past papers.

Glossary of exam words Word Compare

Meaning Are the things alike or are there important differences? Which do you think is best? Why? Contrast Look for differences Criticise Use the evidence to support your opinion on the value of merit of ideas, facts or views of others Define Give the meaning Describe Write in detail Differentiate Explain the difference Discuss Write about important aspects of the topic, are there two sides to the question? Consider the arguments for and against Distinguish Explain the difference Evaluate Judge the importance of success/failure Evaluate (Maths) Find the numerical answer to a problem Explain Make clear Illustrate Give examples which make the point clear Interpret Explain the meaning in your own words, for example you may have to interpret a graph Justify Give reasons to support and argument of action Outline Choose the most important aspects of a topic.

The BRIDGES focus for the fortnight Monday 20th April – Friday 8th May is:

Noticing

Sherlock Holmes is a fictional detective created by author and physician Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. A London-based ‘consulting detective’ whose abilities border on the fantastic, Holmes is famous for noticing even the smallest details and his astute logical reasoning. What appears to others as chaos is, to Holmes, a wealth of useful information. Noticing Concentrated observing to enable seeing details that are not immediately evident. Respectful attention or consideration. Behaviours Spending time to notice how you and others learn and feel, concentrating on attention to detail, looking ‘beneath the surface’, being alert and aware, resisting becoming self-absorbed, not ‘judging a book by its cover’, identifying great ideas, seeing what things are made of and how they behave, letting an underlying pattern of connections emerge. Using all your senses. Top tips Students Review your work at home after each lesson. After two weeks see what improvements you notice in your understanding and retention of learning. Notice your environment/audience and adapt your behaviour/language appropriately. Notice other people’s feelings and emotions and offer support/assistance. Parents Encourage your son/daughter to review their days learning and notice where there learning can be improved. Look at a painting or work of art with your child and discuss what you notice Jo Spencer, Vice Principal 18  INA Newsletter

ATTENDANCE

Regular attendance is a crucial factor in students’ educational development and ability to achieve their full potential.


"We build too many walls and not enough bridges.” Isaac Newton BRIDGES are habits of mind or learning characteristics that develop a pupil's character and learning power and enable him/her to grow into a well-rounded individual and resilient learner. There are seven BRIDGES habits that we will be working on, which will rotate on a weekly cycle throughout the year. The BRIDGES habit of the week will always be introduced at the beginning of the week during the Monday assembly and reinforced throughout the week across the curriculum. Each class teacher will award a certificate to a pupil that they feel has demonstrated the BRIDGES focus for the week. Each week we will update you on the BRIDGES habit that will be introduced in the coming week and offer some top tips on how to reinforce the habit at home too. Please also refer to the Primary BRIDGES wheel above Week commencing 4th May – Emotional Intelligence Emotional Intelligence Displaying habits of listening, empathy, collaboration, sociability, reflectiveness, understanding and openness. At home and school: At school we always remind the children to treat others in the way that they would like to be treated in return. When a child hurts someone or makes a poor behaviour choice, it is important that they reflect on their behaviour and, if another person is involved, that they apologise to them. Having consistent boundaries between home and school is very important. It is important that the children learn to share the school resources and include others in their games and understand that sometimes we have to wait patiently to play with something if someone has it first. At times in school we use a sand timer to visually demonstrate that the children are each given a fair amount of time with resources. We are certainly getting better at this skill but having this reinforced at home would go a long way to help. Tam Broadway, Head of Primary

Parent Information Board Parent & Headteacher Forum Meeting – Friday 15th May As we are now in our last academic term of the year and preparing for a new cohort of children in September, I would appreciate some constructive feedback as I begin to plan ahead. If you would like to come along to the forum meeting, it will be held in the dining hall at 9.00 on Friday 15th May. I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible. I appreciate that morning events may not be convenient for everyone, so will happily organise the following half term’s date in an evening.

PE Kit Reminder As part of your child’s learning and demonstrating a ‘good level of development’ for their age, they must be able to dress and undress themselves. This will also help them as they move up to Year 1 in September. This term, on Mondays, the children are expected to come to school in their normal school uniform and will need to bring their PE kit with them to change into for their afternoon lesson. They will remain in their PE kit for the rest of the day, bringing their school uniform home in their bag. Can you please ensure that every item of clothing is clearly labelled with your child’s name. There is now a lost property box in the main reception area for any items found around the school, or for you to drop off any items that your child may have taken home by mistake. 24  INA Newsletter
