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!
Years 3 and 4 visited Sheringham Beach for a free trip to look at the ecology on the beach. The trip was delivered by Rob from The National Trust and he got the children really interested in the animals and habitats we could see. We started off digging for worms and the children held them! Then Rob went in the sea with a net and collected shrimps and small fish. The last activity was rock pooling and everyone searched hard for sea creatures. We found lots, including: anemones, crabs and starfish.
On Wednesday, 34 children from across MJS visited the Sportspark, UEA, to compete against other schools in Sportshall Athletics. We were really proud of the children’s attitude to the games, with many of them suffering from a few beginners nerves at the start of the day. Everyone who attended tried their best and had varying levels of success across their different games. They were incredibly supportive of each other and respectful towards the other schools too. Well done to everyone involved.
An enormous thank you to those who came and/or supported our first family bingo night at MIJS. Everyone we spoke to said they had a great night and we can’t wait to plan another one next term.
Alongside the movie nights we held, you helped us raise £624.52!! We are currently in discussions about the next stage of our field development so plan to use the money towards some of this project. The school councils will be meeting this term to discuss possible options which we will share with you in the near future. We’d like to publicly thank our bingo caller Maggie who kindly gave up her time to lead the proceedings.
Thank you again for your support, it’s very much appreciated and means we can continue to improve the things we can offer your children.
