Year 6 Careers Fair 2019

What do you want to be when you are older… is a question often asked of our young people. On Friday  7th June, Year 6 pupils at Mundesley Junior and Bacton Primary Schools they found out all about the world of work!

Annie Edwards, Chair of Governors at The Coastal Federation, who organised the event was keen to get a broad cross-section of careers on show for the children to take part in a ‘speed-dating’ style event. Attending the event was a Vet, Police Officer, Veterinary Nurse, Project and Test Web Manager, Web Designer, Beautician, Hairdresser, Engineer, Hedge Layer, Nurse, Journalist/Blogger, Research Scientist.

Simon Wakeman, Executive Head of the Federation said that ‘For these professionals to give up their precious time to talk about their jobs was inspiring to see.  It’s never too early to start inspiring our young people and give them a dream to aim for’

Mrs Skinner the Year 6 teacher stated that ‘One of the other important elements of the careers fair was about sitting children in front of potential employers and the children having to make good eye contact and sustain a conversation – these are such important life-skills’

Following the event the children are going to organise their own career day, using their newfound knowledge to share that with the younger children in the Federation.

After SATs Celebrations

To celebrate the end of SATs, on Thursday  afternoon we played tennis and worked in groups to create  ‘face sculptures’ on the trees in the school grounds. Each group had to design their sculpture out of natural materials that they found.

On Friday we were all treated to a ‘Well done!’ cooked breakfast- which was delicious. Following this, we worked in small groups (and later came together as a class) to produce our very own MJS  ‘Bin Bag fashion show’ All models were wearing clothes that were designed by their teams and made out of plastic rubbish that we had collected from school.

Girls Football

On Friday 26th April, the girls football team from years 5 and 6 played in a tournament at Millfield Primary School. They played really hard during their numerous 5 minute games and scored a number of great goals. This resulted in them coming 4th in the competition – only just missing out on a top three place. Well done girls!

The Big Battery Hunt

Did you know….

Over 20,000 tonnes of batteries end up in landfill sites – that’s as heavy as 4,000 elephants!

Last term the school council set the children a challenge to collect up as many used batteries as they could.  Everyone did an amazing job, some even speaking to local shops and businesses to help.

On Friday 26th April the school council spent the morning counting up everyone’s batteries.  The infant and junior children collected a total of 6742!! Well done everyone. Please keep collecting and pop them in our recycling battery containers in the front offices.

Royal Albert Hall March 2019

On Friday 22nd March, years 3 and 4 went on a very exciting trip to London to see Classical Spectacular at the Royal Albert Hall. For some children, this was their first trip to London and all enjoyed looking at the sights from the coach as we drove through London. The concert was brilliant, with music from the likes of Tchaikovsky, Elgar and Strauss. Each piece was accompanied by dancers, lasers, opera singers and fireworks. There was even gunshots and cannons to go with the 1812 overture finale. Everyone had a great time and it was completely worth the long journey!

Strictly Come Dancing for Comic Relief

For comic relief this year, we followed in the footsteps of Strictly Come Dancing stars Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman. Instead of dancing for 24 hours, we danced to 2 songs then joined together in a conga. We went round the school and onto the playground before showing off our limbo skills!

Cycling Event

Last week, some year 5 and 6 children took part in a cycling event on our field. The children did really well and Alex and Miles came away with medals. Well done!
