Y6 Maths Club

Just a reminder for parents that Mr Jones’ Maths Club will be on tomorrow. It runs from 3.30 – 4.15 and children should be collected from 6J’s outside door (by the main reception.) Children are encouraged to bring a drink and enjoyable snack to the session.


Year 6 Mosque Visit

Year 6 have thoroughly enjoyed their visit to Telford Central Mosque today. We are very grateful to the Imam and Mr Maqsood for helping arrange the visit. The children were fantastic and learned an awful lot during their time there. Revered Merry also attended the visit and it was great to show the understanding of both faiths to the children. 

Here a few quotes that the children gave about their visit:

“It was really fun to learn about another religion and visit their place of worship…”

“I thought it was really informative and I learned lots of new things…”

“My favorite part was learning some Arabic words…”

“It was fun to get to see their prayer mats and listen to the talk about how important the pillars are in Islam…”

Y6 Mosque Visit

A reminder that Year 6 are visiting Telford Central Mosque in Wellington on Monday. Group 1 (6J + half of 6S) will be leaving school at 9am and are due to return by 11.15am. Group 2 (6K + half of 6S) will be leaving NJS at 10.15am and are due to return at 12.30pm. All children will eat lunch at school as normal.

Children are asked to ensure they are wearing long sleeve tops and trousers for the visit. We have also asked that they bring a hat or scarf to respect the rules of the Mosque. Revered Merry from St Nic’s church will be joining us for our visit.


Year 6 Christmas Party

On Wednesday afternoon, Year 6 children will be having their Christmas party. The children are welcome to bring their choice of comfortable clothing for the afternoon. As always, we ask the children to contribute to the party buffet by bringing in an item of food. Your child has volunteered to bring in a specific item(s) and they should have written this down in their homelink book as a reminder. Please can we remind you that we do have a severe nut allergy in Year 6 and therefore ask that no products containing nuts are bought into school. We also ask that there is no cheese or pineapple bought in as we also have children allergic to those items. If you have any questions, please speak to your child’s class teacher. Thanks in advance, the Year 6 team.

A huge well done to all lower school children for their hard work in creating our very own Synagogue. As part of B&V day all children learned about important religious buildings and the children in 5M’s session created this very impressive design using tissue paper. Thank you to the hard work of the staff who helped.

6J: French Study Pt 1

6J had the first part of their French study today with Professor Muller from Cambridge University. They looked at identifying character, numbers, clothes, colours and attempted to write their own French description of a character. This study will continue throughout the week. The children seemed to have had great fun taking part in this study.

Black History Month

6J have been recognising black history month this week and during today’s lesson we looked at some the coded language which would’ve been used by slaves trying to organise an escape. We had a go at creating our own coded messages. See if you can crack the 6J coded sentence.


Wright house team meeting


In the Wright house team meeting today we spoke about black history month and why we celebrate this month within school. Miss Hardy then shared the story of Mary Seacole – feel free to ask your child what they can remember about her.
