Japanese children’s day was celebrated a week late owing to their recent residential trip.
Nonetheless, Year 1 boys gained an insight into the culture of one of their peers and enjoyed participating in some traditional activities. They made koinobori (carp fish flags) and kabuto (Samurai helmets).
Year 1 parents were thrilled to be invited to their son's special assembly this week. They were entertained with a clever iPad book made by the whole class, real light-up lighthouses, the science behind an electric circuit, paintings and chalk art, acting and songs. Parents remarked on how proud they were of their sons who have become confident to speak in front of such an audience; and how happy they appeared whilst performing.
It was a truly fun assembly, enjoyed by all.
NSB played Durham School in a friendly tennis match and were in great form.
The boys played a total of 12 matches in both singles and doubles with NSB winning the tie 9-3. Number one seed Cole C led the way with three victories, winning his singles 4-0 and sharing doubles victories with George R and Elliot J. Number three seed, William H also won all three of his ties.
Well done to the whole squad of Cole, William, Elliot, Oliver M and George.
