NJS Globetrotters!

Over the past two weeks, teams from years 3&4 and 5&6 have ventured to Campsmount to take part in Leger Sport basketball competitions. As always, the events were well organised and highly competitive with our children representing the school proudly. Whilst both teams achieved third, their team spirit, resilience (against incredibly tall opponents) and togetherness was inspiring. Well done to both teams!

Christmas Craft fun!

On Wednesday 30th, parents and carers of year 6 children were invited to take part in our annual Christmas crafts afternoon. It was lovely to welcome parents into our classroom to help our children create their own tissue paper Christmas wreaths whilst enjoying some Christmas music. Thank you to all who attended an

The Christmas Truce, 1914

This morning, 6CC were ordered to take shelter under the tables as the air raid siren boomed overhead. After spending some time building up our knowledge of all things World War I, the children imagined what it would be like to live and fight in the trenches before being introduced to famous ‘The Christmas Truce’ TV advert.

After watching the video, children planned their own stories (in first or third person) and set about generating vocabulary to enhance the descriptions and emotive language in their writing. With such great ideas and discussions surrounding how the soldiers must have felt during what is a special time of year, I look forward to seeing their finished stories!
