Welcome to Newsham!

We aim to make everyone welcome at Newsham Primary. Part of our support for people who join us is to take the time to find out about their life before they came to us. This helps the new comer settle and feel valued, but can also teach the rest of us about life beyond Newsham. Safa has come to us from Afghanistan. She was inspired by a book we were reading at school to create her own picture book. She works incredibly hard and we are so proud of what she does. We have two videos: one is Safa telling her story in English and the second is her telling the story in Farsi, which until a short while ago was her only spoken language. We can definitely detect the odd bit of Geordie in some of her story too!
