Dear Parents and Carers
As you are aware, the children of NJS have been unable to do their swimming lessons for the past few months. This is because of the work currently happening which started on the 7 January. All the contractors and workers have worked really hard and are doing an amazing job. This new, amazing swimming pool is getting even better every day – it is going to be fabulous!
We (School Council) were able to visit the pool recently to see the changes that have been made. The contractors are redoing practically everything! We have new windows, doors, floors and walls. We have learnt that the floor sealer used takes one week to go off. On top of this will go a grey flooring which will have resin on top to make it smooth for bare feet. The new windows are triple glazed to keep the warmth in, the walls have already been plaster boarded and plastered. When they are painted the new colour scheme will be white and pale grey. Another of the changes that we talked about is the door being made wider so a wheelchair can fit through.
The pool itself will be the same size as before. Non swimmers please don’t worry about the depth because it will be the same! It has had a new blue lining to help keep it protected. The pool will also have all new filters so it is really important we all wear our swimming caps to make sure the filters are looked after.
Before, there were lots of problems with the pool. It didn’t work properly and the surroundings weren’t always nice. But that is now a thing of the past! Our new pool is going to be amazing. It will be something to be proud of. School Council are also taking responsibility to help Steph keep it clean and new. We are all very excited about when the pool opens in March and can’t wait to get swimming!
Thank you for your support.
I am incredibly proud of the commitment of NJS staff to providing a wide range of free and inclusive clubs; the children have great extra curricular opportunity.
Clubs have now restarted and the team would really appreciate it if you could ensure, each Friday, that you have checked the website/your emails for club details for the following week. Mr M posts them each week by a Friday.
We avoid cancelling or altering details for clubs where possible but on occasions staff will have other commitments and we will communicate this the week before on the website.
We are aware that on some devices the clubs lists can appear blurred. We always post them as images and PDFs to try to help and we have now received some ‘technical assistance’ which we hope will help with this further.
Thank you so much for your support with our fabulous club provision and thank you to the wonderful team who offer these opportunities.
Tomorrow, we will be conducting our Disclosing Tablet / toothbrushing experiment in classes across Year 3. Please ensure that your child remembers to bring their toothbrush /paste in a plastic bag if they wish to take part. Also, they MUST return their permission slip, which was sent out by letter last week.
If you require another permission letter, please download and complete the attached letter, or read it and date / sign a homelink message in your child’s homelink book, giving permission, stating that you have read the contents of the letter attached.
Finally, the date on the letter should read Wednesday 6th February. Apologies for any confusion!
(NB: you MUST state that you have read the contents of the letter if you are sending a homelink. Thanks!)
The Year 3 Team
Boys who registered their interest for Computing Club on a Thursday should have brought home a small homelink message today, to say that they are welcome to attend. The club is now FULL. All children who registered an interest have been offered a place.
Club takes place in the ICT room in the Year 3 block on the playground. If you are picking up your child, please wait outside the Year 3 block at 4:30pm. Thank you.
Today is National Safer Internet Day. The children will be talking in assembly about the importance of keeping safe while engaging in online activities.
Parents might find this document useful. It is a fact sheet about TikTok, a video sharing app which many of the children are using.
