Welcome back!

Staff at Mount Street Junior School would like to offer a warm welcome to all our new pupils. Everyone has been busy settling in this week and adjusting to their new surroundings and routines.

The whole school have been looking at ‘Rights and Responsibilities’ as their new topic. The children have been researching and deciding which rights work for their class. For example the right to listen, the right to speak, the right to be safe etc.

The Upper Juniors will be moving on to a new topic called ‘Car-tastrophe?’ they will look into the history of the car, designing their own car and then making it during D.T lessons.

 

The three Upper Junior classes will be swimming from Monday 9th September up until Christmas.

A welcome letter will be sent out today with all children, if you do not receive one please pop into the school office and we will get you a copy. Also a letter will be sent out to children who are interested in taking up Violin or Brass lessons.

Finally, we are collecting the Team GB stickers from Aldi, they are running ‘Aldi’s Kit for Schools’ with enough stickers we could be one of the twenty primary schools in with a chance of winning £20,000.

 

 

D-Day Remembrance service

The whole school came together this morning to remember those who risked and gave their lives for our future. The children respectfully sat and watched a power point presentation of pictures and facts from the Second World War. We heard the story and experiences of 15 year old Jim Radford who was a galley boy with his first trip at sea being to Normandy. He revisited the beach where many of his friends and comrades lost their lives and wrote a song for that day never to be forgotten. Staff and children sat and listened to the poignant music and words.

Fun Friday in 3/4W

After our successful talent day, the children from Mrs Waghorn’s Year 3/4 class decided that they would like the opportunity to do more cooking. Children asked their parents for permission to bring in their favourite recipe and the needed ingredients. A rota is now up and running with two children every Friday getting to cook their tasty treats.

Today was the turn of Connie and Neeve. Connie choosing to make marbled muffins and Neeve Chocolate peanut brownies. Both girls brought in what they needed and along with the support of Mrs Bowen they got to work. The smell wafting the corridors was delicious.

Breakfast Club Birthday

Mount Street Junior School’s breakfast club got together this morning to celebrate their 6th successful year. The birthday bash was well attended with 35 children ready to try what was on the menu. Mrs Thomas and the other staff had asked the children in the run up to today’s event what new fruits and bread they would like to try. There were many new and exciting tastes they wanted to explore. Grapefruit and apricot were firm favourites as was the pain au chocolat.

After the children sat together and enjoyed their feast, they played the usual games on offer as well as a balloon game and the fruit salad challenge. In order to win, the children were timed and had to match the correct fruits with its name.

Happy 6th Birthday breakfast club!

Cross Country success at Builth for the Powys Primary Schools Cross Country Challenge

We had a sunny day at Builth Wells showground for the Powys Primary Schools Cross Country Challenge. All 30 children from Mount Street Junior school ran their socks off over a long and testing course.

In the Year 4 boys race we were thrilled to receive an individual third place medal. The Year 3 girls combined placings, resulted in them being awarded the Year 3 Girls Team runner up.

We are so proud of them all for their efforts. Da Iawn!
