NJS Walk To School Week

This week NJS have been taking part in the Walk With Wildlife Five Day Walking Challenge.

As part of this, we have been using our crew time to discuss how we get to school in a morning, whether this be walking, driving or cycling. This has tied in nicely with our Wise Wednesday crew sessions over the half term, in which we have been debating the benefits of exercise and getting active outside.

We have even taken our walking challenge one step further, walking a mile around our school filed every morning during our crew sessions. We have been clocking up the steps, averaging around 1800 steps!

Marvellous Magna

Yesterday year 3 and 4 went on an amazing trip to Magna. We explored all four pavilions – earth, wind, fire and water. We saw lots of exciting exhibits such as both a wind and fire tornado.

To top off all the excitement we had a workshop all about volcanoes. We tested the properties of rocks, looking at which were magnetic and which could float. We then used vinegar and baking soda to make our own erupting volcano.

The children were a credit to the school, with exemplary behaviour and beautiful manners.

Magna Science Adventure Centre

Yesterday, LKS2 embarked on an exciting field trip to Magna Science Adventure Centre where we had an amazing experience for our pupils building background knowledge for our new expedition – Earth Shattering Events. During the day we explored the elements of earth, wind, fire and water with a highlight of watching the fire tornado. All children were an asset to our school and behaved perfectly.🔥🌎💦💨
