Mount Street Remembers

On Monday 11th November 2019 the we remembered those who gave their lives during war.  The Remembrance service at The Plough Chapel was led by pupils where we shared our understanding, thoughts and feelings with the congregation.

The Plough chapel was adorned with poppies. Each of us had the opportunity to create
a poppy in memory of a hero who lost his or her life during past and present wars. The poppies were made from recycled bottles. The bottom of each bottle was transformed into a beautiful poppy which added to the atmosphere in the chapel. It was a very moving service for all and was lovely to receive the following comment after the service:

 

“I have just attended your memorial service in the Plough Chapel. I served for 30 years in The Royal Air Force and took part in many Remembrance parades and services during my career. Today’s led by the children was the most moving I can remember. 
Huge congratulations to staff and most of all the children.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

Harvest Festival Fun

Everyone had a fantastic day celebrating harvest here at Mount Street.

We had a brilliant range of fruit models with some amazing creativity. Listening to the very informative presentations from each of the pupils was delightful, a lot of hard work had gone into making the models.

Each child was given the choice whether they would like to take their models home or use them to help create the soup and salad.

We all then spent the day reusing our fruit and vegetables and making them into delicious soup and fruit salad.

The Lower Juniors focused on chopping the vegetables for the soup whilst the Upper Juniors took on the challenge of fruit salad as part of our Science and Technology learning.

 

 

Thank you to everyone who donated food for Brecon Foodbank. It was wonderful to see generosity from across the school. Diolch yn fawr iwan!

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.
