Skills day fun!

Mount Street Junior School skills day was another success with the children enjoying their two choices. Back by popular demand was the cooking option, with 98 children choosing to cook up a tasty treat. On the menu was Apple crumble. Mrs Davies had thought of everything and there were different options to accompany the tasty stewed apple. Here are a few photos of a very enjoyable day.

 

 

 

Broneirion – Day 1

What a great start to our Broneirion adventures!

After singing our way to Mid Wales on the mini busses we were welcomed by our instructors Matt, Jo and Chris who gave us a tour of the amazing building. After lunch we split into our activity groups and had a go at our first activities. Zorb body balls and team problem solving challenges. I think it is safe to say everybody enjoyed and there were definitely some people who were better at staying on their feet during the zorb balls.

We are looking forward to seeing what we are going to be doing tomorrow!

Year 6

 

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.
