In DT the children in Year 6 have been planning a healthy picnic. On Friday the sun was shining and the school field was dry so we prepared our food and had a lovely relaxing afternoon soaking up the sun and eating our healthy snacks (or not so healthy in some cases!)
All of the children at Consett Junior School have worked very hard this term! Year 6, in particular, are looking forward to a well earned break after SAT’s! Ryan found some of the Year 6 girls AND Miss Waters asleep in the reading corner today! Shocking!
Yesterday, the children from Year 6 watched the stage production of ‘The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas’. The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and commented that it was more true to the book than the film was. Their behaviour was exceptional as always and members of the public even commented on how outstanding they were. Well done for being excellent representatives for Consett Junior School Year 6!
Year 6 have tried so hard in their SAT’s tests so far this week; we are all very proud of them. To ensure that we don’t lose momentum or get too stressed, we have taken part in a yoga session this afternnon. The yoga was supposed to help the children relax at the mid point in SAT’s week but we also had a good laugh trying to recreate some of the shapes that the instructor was demonstrating! At the end we were so tired we had to have a little sleep!
Thanks to Joanne for giving up her time to teach us today! We are now relaxed and raring to go in time for our Maths SAT’s tomorrow and Thursday!
On Friday afternoon we had a street party on the yard! It was fantastic!!!
The weather was beautiful so we decorated the picnic tables and laid out our brilliant spread.
In year 6 we began the afternoon by singing the National anthem then listening to Winston Churchill’s speech. The children then took part in an activity where they were asked to role play conversations from the time and discuss their feelings about the end of the war.
We then wrote a postcard to reflect these feelings before we went outside to eat and listen to wartime music.
The day ended with a special assembly, with the whole school completing a two minute silence to remember all of our fallen soldiers.
Thank you to all of the parents and carers who donated food for our street party.

This week has been Anti-Bullying week at Consett Junior School and we’ve really enjoyed it! The aim of this themed week was to raise awareness and discuss methods for dealing with bullies.
Children from the school council have written an Anti-Bullying pledge, which their peers have signed and this has now been displayed in the hall.
On an afternoon children have taken part in a range of Drama, SEAL, Music, ICT, RE, Art, PE and DT activities linked to anti-bullying. In today’s assembly, each class performed the winning song from their Music session, which was then judged by Miss Waters Fernandez Versini! 🙂
All of the children have worked really hard this week.
SAY NO TO BULLYING!
TALK TO THE HAND!
Thank you to all of the parents and carers who attended our Easter Service. It was lovely to see such a good turn out, as usual and I am sure that you enjoyed listening to the children singing as much as they enjoyed performing for you! It was also great to have the band playing along to one of the songs. Special thanks to Rev. Shedden for making us feel so welcome at Christ Church. We can’t wait to go back in the near future!
This morning when we arrived at school our teachers had covered the outside of the building in white paper! We were wondering what on earth was going on!!! They explained that we were going to watch the eclipse in a special way so as not to damage our eyes! It was brilliant. 🙂
