For this Mufti Day the PTA have decided, for a bit of fun and a change to the norm, that this Mufti Day is a Backwards Day. Children, for £1, will need to wear their clothes Backwards.
Pedestrian Training, led by T&W’s Road Safety teams is coming up for children in years 3 and 4 over the next few weeks. A letter informing you of this will be coming home tomorrow.
It can also be found here: pedestrian training
Please remember our clubs restart for 6 weeks from Monday. Only children who are signed up for the after school clubs are expected to attend. If your child still requires a place, please contact your child’s class teacher.
Please can I remind parents about our Healthy Eating Policy and how we encourage children to bring in healthier snack choices for their morning break. Some children are bringing in chocolate snacks, cakes and biscuits.
Can I also ask that snacks are not kept in the child’s lunchbox. These are not to be accessed during the day until they are needed at lunchtime. Snacks can remain in their bags until morning break.
The link below will take you to our Healthy Eating Policy on the website.
All at NJS, including myself, have been absolutely thrilled with how you have all travelled to school in the last 10 days.
We were in 5th place out of 2,300 school in the UK, we have had over 94% of the school completing the Big Pedal, on average everyday, there have been over 5000 journeys by pedals by pupils and their support in the last 10 days & the traffic outside the front of school has been vastly reduced!! So why don’t we all try our best and try and pedal to school more often?!!?
Well done to all the children who walked, scooted and biked on the day that were entered into the raffle and super congratulations to the 22 children who were raffle prize winners, taking home bike locks, reflectors, helmet stickers, cycling gloves and other fab prizes.
Judged by the ladies from T&W and the Big Pedal, massive congratulations to
The Jungle Girl Scooter – Hattie 4K
The SuperGirl Bike – Paige 6J
Both girls went home with a Cycling goody bag filled with some amazing prizes.
Here are some of the fantastic photos we have taken of the Bling Your Bike competition:

A super Daily Mile day completed by all the children at NJS – well done all. This is something we hope to implement in the Autumn term, so it was an excellent trial today. Every child did so well and all had a super pleasing time!
