Dear Parents and Carers,
lthough it has been a short half term, we feel that we’ve packed a lot in!
This week we welcomed many of next year’s Year 7s and their parents for an information evening. It does not seem like 3 years ago that we were doing that for the first time! On Monday everyone at the primary school, plus some parents, went on a trip to Old MacDonald’s Farm; you can read all about it in this edition. After the holidays our new peripatetic guitar and bass teacher, Mr Braithwaite, joins us. He introduces himself below: I am very excited to be joining Isaac Newton Academy as the new guitar and bass teacher. The school has amazing facilities all round and especially in the music department; I am looking forward to making good use of them and hoping to create the next generation of musical superstars. I have been a professional guitarist and teacher for over a decade. As a guitarist I have toured the world working with many artists including Vanessa-Mae, Will Young, Westlife, The Four Tops, The Game and many more. As a songwriter and producer I have written songs for Rihanna, Taylor Swift, Kelly Clarkson and American Horror Story. I have also had two guitar tuition books published worldwide. As a teacher I have taught and held master classes at some of the most highly regarded music colleges and universities in the UK along with various primary and secondary schools. I am looking forward to sharing these experiences with the students of Isaac Newton Academy and watching their musical skill and passion for learning guitar and bass develop and grow. Having taught at many other schools and colleges I can really appreciate that all the staff and students at Isaac Newton Academy are working at the highest level. As a result of this, I am really looking forward to immersing myself in the school and getting to know all of the students and working alongside the other teachers. I wish you all a very happy half term holiday and look forward to welcoming the students back at 8.25am (secondary) and 8.45am (primary) on Monday 1st June.
With best wishes,
achel Macfarlane, rincipal

Ramadan Bid for an astroturf at INA
Dear parents, As you may be aware, we are unable to use our multi-use games area (MUGA) during adverse weather for health and safety reasons as the surface becomes very slippery. The academy is currently in the process of submitting a bid to Sport England to replace the surface with a 3G floodlit astroturf all weather pitch. As part of the bid, the academy needs to demonstrate a high level of community use. Given how popular our sports hall is for external lettings, we are confident that the floodlit astroturf will be highly desirable for external use. We are therefore asking for your support. If you are, or you know anyone who may be interested in letting this facility outside of school hours, can you please e-mail the school office info@ isaacnewtonacademy.org. We have also set up a petition which is available for signing in the school office. Thank you in advance for your continued support. Dave Beattie (Head of PE) and Helen Chamberlain (Finance and Resources Director)
Ramadan Individual Maths Challenge

It is aimed not just at those who are attaining well in maths but also those who enjoy solving thought-provoking problems. Of the 89 students who took part 19 achieved a bronze award, 13 achieved silver and 4 achieved gold. A big well done to Keerthivas Venkatesan (8A) who not only achieved the highest mark but, as one of the top performers in the country (5%), is invited to the next round.

Sports and Exercise Science Saturday Stretch On Saturday 16th May we welcomed to INA Afiah, an undergraduate student studying Sports and Exercise Science at University Campus Suffolk (Ipswich). She came to deliver a Saturday Stretch session for our sports enthusiasts. A group of 20 students were involved in this wonderful session. In the first half of the session Afiah focussed on Higher Education and the benefits it brings. We got to learn of the freedom it brings - learning in your own time and also having the experience of having to organise your own life, from accommodation to what types of learning you do in a subject. Independence was a striking factor and the students really enjoyed hearing about her experiences. Afiah explained that there were almost 45,000 different degrees and courses available to study. She talked us through the various options that are available in order to finance university. We also loved to hear that you could be earning more money when you have a degree! The group appreciated asking questions about student life at university and prospects and this turned in to a really meaningful discussion. We also got to understand that a degree could be a challenge you set yourself by studying something you’d never done before. Alternatively it could be something you loved and are extremely passionate about. She also explained the entry requirements for the course and also the careers that could be pursued after the degree. The students were amazed to hear about the skills gained from her degree and how it makes her more employable. We learnt this was because of the extensive experiences she took part in throughout her course. For example, through her degree at UCS she was fortunate enough to get a job working at Ipswich Town Football Club and even to go to Switzerland. The modules in the degree: · Human Physiology · Human Physiological Measurements · Cell Biology and Biochemistry · Kinesiology · Introduction to Psychology · Exercise Physiology · Exercise Metabolism and Nutrition · Sport and Exercise Biomechanics · Sport and Exercise Psychology · Research Methods and Statistics · Sports Performance Physiology · Clinical Exercise Physiology · Functional Foods and Metabolism · Obesity and Energy Homeostasis · Applied Sport Psychology · Work-Based Experience (option) · Dissertation (final year research project) Applications of Exercise Psychology Performance Analysis in Sport Engaging Science 4 INA Newsletter
In the second part of the session we got to role play being sports psychologists. We were given the following scenarios: 1.
It is your first game of the season and you want to impress the new manager with a win. What is going through your head before the game?
What do you think affects Usain Bolt’s performance before a big competition?
After this our task was to design Usain Bolt’s diet on the day of his race. We needed to make sure this was a balanced one. Afiah thoroughly enjoyed listening to the interesting and creative suggestions of foods the students came up with. A huge well done to everyone who attended. A special thank you to Afiah, for motivating and promoting the world of university to our students. It was a really insightful session and gave us all a better idea of studying Sports and Exercise Science at university.

Rochester visit Thursday 14th May and Friday 15th May:
Year 7 got to go on a trip to Rochester to visit Rochester Cathedral and Castle. I really liked this trip as it was a chance for me to extend my knowledge further and also a great experience/ sight. I would definitely go there again or recommend you to visit it. They also have a little gift shop where you can buy sweets or items to remember your trip. As this trip was for Humanities and English, it was connected with the topics which we were studying, which also helped us expand our learning. Kaiya Greenidge 7S Year 7 went to Rochester Castle to learn about the Normans and the history of the castle itself. Everyone had a great time and we learnt many things about the castle and the cathedral. This trip was linked to Humanities because everyone in year 7 has learnt about the Normans. The trip was linked to English because in English lessons we have learnt about old English and have also looked at ‘The Canterbury tales’. On the trip we all had to act like pilgrims going on a pilgrimage (to Canterbury). Sisay Shah 7W When we went to Rochester castle we had lots of fun. It was actually really interesting, as we got to go to the top of the castle which was really high and had so many steps. We saw a model of the castle and walked around the castle which had lots of facts. There was a really cool gift shop with sweets and swords. It was really fun, I enjoyed it. Saira Musab 7T My day was amazing! What I enjoyed was going up the pilgrim’s stairs of the cathedral on my knees. I was confident going up but frightened going down. What I disliked was the written tasks, they hurt my hand. When we went to Rochester Castle we went to the gift shop. It had feather pens like the one that King John used. It also had mood rings, archery weapons and swords which the army of King John would have used. As you can see Rochester castle is very important. I really enjoyed the trip and don’t mind going again. Amman Hassan 7C

The BRIDGES focus for the fortnight Monday 1st June – Friday 12th June is:
Aung San Suu Kyi, Burma’s opposition politician and chairperson of the National League for Democracy (NLD), spent more than fifteen years in detention, most of it under house arrest. She is the daughter of Aung San, who was assassinated when she was only two years old while he was campaigning for independence. Under her leadership, the NLD won a staggering 82% of the seats in parliament. The Burmese dictatorship refused to recognise the results of the election and would not to hand over power to the NLD. Placed under house arrest and cut off from any communication she might have with the outside world, Suu Kyi became one of the world's most prominent political prisoners. During her incarceration, Suu Kyi remained positive and optimistic and used the time to study, write books and exercise. She said ‘Fear is a habit; I am not afraid.’ Following her release in April 2012, Suu Kyi was finally allowed to take a seat in the Burmese parliament. She was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1991. Optimism A shared social sense of what is right and wrong. Behaviours Adopting a ‘glass half full’ attitude towards your learning, always looking on the bright side even when things don’t go as planned, always looking for the best outcome and taking something positive from every learning situation. Top tips Students Visualise yourself succeeding in your learning and imagine how positive you will feel, then plan how you will make it happen. Focus on the positive learning experiences in your life, especially when you are experiencing a challenging or difficult. Use optimistic and growth mindset language like I can, I will, I can’t yet Parents Talk to your son/daughter about a time you experienced a loss, setback, or hardship and were able to find a silver lining of some sort. Talk about what you did to bounce back from it. Share with your son/daughter an optimistic picture of your day/week and what you learned from your experiences. Use optimistic and growth mindset language with your son/daughter. Jo Spencer, Vice Principal

Everybody had a fabulous day at Old MacDonald’s Farm on Monday. The children had a fun packed time, learning about a range of different animals including: a spotted eagle owl, meerkats, a llama, parrots, alpacas and wallabies. We were treated to a hands-on talk by the farm staff about various animals and the children were given the opportunity to ask questions – the farm staff were very impressed by the level of thoughtful questions that were asked.

Our Exciting Learning this Week
Mr Clift-Matthews, Isaac Newton’s Head of Science, brought some of his amazing animals that live in the secondary school to visit the primary. The pupils had the opportunity to demonstrate a number of their BRIDGES characteristics by asking some great ‘discovery’ questions about the different animals, and as you can see from some of the photographs, a number of pupils put their ‘Bravery’ into to practice too by holding the corn snake! Only the adults seemed scared – they clearly need further work on their BRIDGES!!

"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 1st June – Resourcefulness Resourcefulness Displaying habits of remembering, recycling, scavenging, questioning and reasoning. At home and school: We will be encouraging the children to think about how they can re-use items around them to best effect. At school we will be giving the children the opportunity to ‘junk model’ and also to think about how we use and discard items around us. At home the children can collect old boxes, wool, string, packaging etc. that could be used to make interesting pieces of art at school or bring in some models or pictures they have created at home. Next half term the topic will be based on ‘superheroes’, so the children could create a piece of art based around this topic; they could design and make a superhero home, a superhero gadget or a new superhero with a particular power. Ideas for lots of fun. Tam Broadway, Head of Primary
