School ipad scheme – important up-date

A high number of student iPads are being returned to the Edutech workshop with damaged screens. Our insurers are now implementing a £50 excess to any claims for broken screens where a screen protector is not applied to the device. 

Parents will be liable to pay this excess if screen protectors are not applied. 

If you do not have a screen protector please ask crew leaders who can access these from school admins. 

Screen protectors and devices form part of our crew equipment check process so this is the responsibility of staff, students and parents to ensure devices are appropriately protected.

Year 6 Leavers BBQ! 🍔

On Friday afternoon, year six celebrated the culmination of their time at NJS at the annual leavers BBQ. All enjoyed fun and games as well as some piping hot BBQ grub served up by our very own BBQ connoisseur, Mrs Gracey. We now look forward to the final week of term with our fantastic year six before they leave the nest to begin their journeys in pastures new.

Please remember to dress your child in light, loose clothing and coat them with suncream before they attend school this week. Additionally, please ensure your child brings a water bottle!

Brilliant Bridlington!

What a wonderful day we had on our recent visit to Bridlington. Seeing the children play together on the beach and run around with smiles on their faces is perhaps my highlight of the year! Well done to all involved : )

Class 5EG has Talent!

This week 5EG organised and performed a talent show to coincide with their Celebration of Learning. They worked collaboratively to plan the event and everyone had a part to play. I didn’t realise how talented the class are!

3LG’s Bridlington Adventure

I think it is fair to say 3LG had quite the adventure on Friday.

We set off from school heading for Bridlington, only to get to Beverly and have to disembark the coach. We owe a massive thank you to Beverly High School for putting us up for an hour on their school field. The children of 3LG and 4GC were a credit to and great representives of NJS, showing beautiful manners and respect. Thankfully, after an hour having a play on Beverly High School field and eating ice creams we were back on the road and heading to the beach.

Once we arrived and lunches had been eaten, it was time for the real fun to begin. 3LG were in their element on the sand, from digging holes and building volcanoes to being buried in the sand everybody was having a fabulous time.

Then came the main reason for our visit, the John Bull factory. Rolling the rock was a highlight (as well as the biscuit and sweet tasting) and every child got their own stick of rock to roll and take home.

We are Chefs!

Today 5EG have concluded their DT Case Study by making a healthy three course meal. One group made carrot and coriander soup, another group made healthy wrap pizzas, and of course one group made dessert – a fruity flapjack. They did a great job working collaboratively together, and with minimal adult support – well done 5EG!
