During election week, as part of their topic on persuasive writing, the boys in Year 4 spent time looking at the manifestos of the major political parties in the run-up to the General Election.
The boys discussed each party’s policies.
They will then write and design letters and fliers persuading people to vote for the party of their choice.
Boys in Year 6 have been helping out award-winning author (and NSB parent) Dan Smith with advice about his new book cover.
Dan approached the School to say he was struggling to choose a cover for his new children’s book Below Zero which comes out in January 2018. Naturally he turned to Year 6 who are both huge Dan Smith fans and passionate readers and bookworms. Boys enjoyed looking at the covers that Dan’s publishing company had designed and offered some valuable market research for Dan to reflect upon.
Well done boys.
The Under 12B team, consisting of Ibrahim A, Yazin A, Hamish A, Marni E Jock E, Oscar G, Max L, Jack P, Joe Tand Taylor T took on the Dame Allan’s U12A team on the Friday before half term.
It was a particularly warm day and to make it such a completive match against the Dame Allan’s A team is testament to the depth and progress within this team. NSB restricted the opposition to 88 from 20 overs with wickets shared between Ibrahim, Yazin, Marnie, Joe and Taylor. NSB’s run chase came up about 40 runs short but not before Hamish and Oscar in particular, impressed with the bat.
