Year Five have all done the first session of their Relationship and Sex Education today, focusing on changes. Discussions were led by the children and naturally there were lots of questions and vocabulary/slang terminology that they brought up. Please be assured that we made it clear to the children which words were appropriate and which were not, and that all discussions were carried out with maturity from the children. Please do not be alarmed if you hear some unusual words and phrases this weekend, and reiterate the message of appropriate/inappropriate language!
The year five teachers
We spent the afternoon experimenting with heating and freezing and whether the changes were reversible or irreversible. We had lots of fun and enjoyed eating weird combinations such as boiled carrots and eggs dipped in chocolate 😋
Reminder that tomorrow is mufti in return for an Easter egg to be donated to the PTA.
Tomorrow evening is the PTA Easter bingo, at NJS at 6pm.
Year 5 children who haven’t brought back their reply slips for the Big Sing Trip (on Wednesday 1st May) have got until Wednesday next week (10th April) to return them.
Any children who have not returned the slip by then will be staying in school.
Children have been given copies of the letter today to bring home.
Just a reminder that there is no mindfulness club tomorrow because I will be at the cross country event. This message is also on the newsletter, website and children have been reminded in assemblies. Thank you, Miss H x
Tomorrow’s cross country race is in Telford Town Park. Like last week, the first race is at 4.30pm.
Children will be released from class at 3 o’clock and can be collected from the school office once they have got changed.
Like last week, when you arrive at the town park, look for the NJS flag. Myself and Miss Payne will be there as soon as we are able to leave school, and Mr L and Mr M will follow once they get back from the Year 4 residential.
Please remember warm layers, a snack and a drink.
Some photos of 5H busily preparing the grass on the field for ‘a photographer’ this morning. The grass just wasn’t green enough! They also needed to find out how many blades there were in each hula hoop of grass, just in case it wasn’t thick enough for the photos! The children got up to 752 blades between them and then lost count. Ha ha ha APRIL FOOLS!
