Y6 at work

Superb Spring Concert this evening

Y6 have been busy this week reading with their buddies and preparing for their Dragons’ Den project. It’s been a busy week for our Senior Choir members too who have rehearsed & performed a complex work by Benjamin Britten at St Mary’s Church.  This afternoon they will be competing in House Football and tomorrow some of Y6 will be at the Science Fair at Wollaton Park.  Every day is action packed at NHJS.

 

Y6 trip to The Black Country Living Museum

Year 6 had a great day out at the Black Country Living Museum on Thursday. We all enjoyed looking at how people used to live in Victorian times & experienced a Victorian lesson.  The teacher was very strict and wasn’t afraid to use his cane!  The children all agreed that life must have been hard & are grateful that they won’t be sent to work in a coal mine.  Thanks to Mrs Hammonds for organising the trip.

 

Independent Studies in Year 6

Year 6 have been hard teaching themselves how to make pop up cards. They were shown pop up cards and had to make their own without any help or guidance. As you can see they were hard at work designing and making their cards, ready to write, design and make a pop up card in future weeks.

Ingram Cup

Many of our Year 6 pupils participated in the Ingram Cup’s Preliminary round this week.  We are delighted that we have so many talented musicians. Each of them gained merits for their Houses and two pupils from each House now go through to the Final of the Ingram Cup, which takes place next week.

Congratulations to

Isak and Nathan – Ball’s House

Arnav and Saahat – Trease’s House

Year 6 trip to Holocaust Memorial Centre

On Wednesday, Year 6 visited the Holocaust Memorial Centre in Newark. The children listened to a Holocaust survivor tell his story of survival in Poland. Then we visited the exhibition ‘The Journey’, learning about children’s experiences in the war. We found the whole experience moving and inspiring. Here children are in the memorial laying stones.
