Northmead Junior School

Newsletter Issue 14

The summer term is always exciting, but this year after coming out of lock down it seems even more special than usual.

Last Thursday 19th May was National Outdoor classroom day and I had great pleasure walking around the school with the Chair of Governors, Konstanze Hild visiting classes enjoying their learning outside in the sunshine.

Year 3 were doing Science, investigating shadows as well as trying to photograph their own shadows and creating imaginative shadow finger puppets.

Year 4 were in the forest school area searching for mini beasts and recording their habitat on life charts.

Year 5 were orienteering using the course that we have mapped out in the school grounds. Their challenge was to find different locations where there were letters that spelt out a secret word. As well as this there were small groups of children pond dipping and spotting newts. We joined 5R to watch one of their ducklings actually hatching and loved the infectious excitement from the children.

Year 6 were practising their singing for this week's jubilee celebrations before heading up to the school field for their afternoon of P.E.

Please check the diary dates at the end of this newsletter as there are a huge number of events and visits in the weeks before the end of the summer term.
