Below are a selection of video messages for children and families in years 2, 3, 4 and 5 from their September 2020 class teachers.
CJS is different for now, but the children inside will bring it back to life
As we prepare to open the school for our Year 6 pupils on Monday, we wanted them (and children from other year groups) to know how it will look. It’s not CJS as we all know it, BUT, with their help we will make it special and atmospheric once again. Help us ignite that sparkle into a very different CJS…
To all our children, families and friends
Thank you to everyone who sponsored me and Miss Oselton for running the 70 mile virtual wall in June, i completed it last night and thought i would share a video of my journey…
Good luck to Miss Oselton who was at 45 miles yesterday.
If U Care Share need our support, mental health and suicide are on the rise in these unprecedented times…and in memory of a special friend.
Dear Parents, Friends and families,
I just want to write to say how very grateful we all are at Consett Junior School, by your amazing generosity; as you can imagine on Thursday evening we were all pretty depressed by the scene on the school yard. Yet since Kyla Clarke, one of our lovely Y5 Parent’s set up the Go Fund page, we’ve been blown away by the kind donations and offers of help. As I write this message the donations are over £3000, truly amazing.
Obviously as someone who lives in the community, I know how generous you all are, with time and help you show towards, not just school but our community – I have to say for once, I’ve been left speechless by the kindness shown.
So can I please thank you all for your kind donations and offers of support, we will of course make sure the Cabin is rebuilt, more splendid than before…but this time it means more, as it will all most certainly be rebuilt with the community fully behind it. A huge thanks to Kyla for her idea to set up the fund raising page, it shows our community in the very nicest way.
Please do thank those people who may not have our school app, we are so very grateful to you and all their help. Hopefully, when the world returns to normal, we will welcome you all into our school to share a fun afternoon with the children and staff.
As always, please stay safe and thank you all.
Paul Dixon and the CJS Team
After spending days trying to decide, I have finally chosen a name for my new kitten. The winning entry is Nala! Congratulations to Liam! Thank you to everyone who entered the competition – you all made it very difficult to choose because i loved all of the names! I have made a note of all the children who entered and you will each receive a dip in the box. Hopefully when we get back to school i can bring her in one day to meet you all.
Just wanted to share with our families the goal of a very competitive and committed pupil from our school, who is also one of our strong CJS cross country team runners. Robert L from year 4 has also registered to run the virtual wall this June and the link below shows photographs of his already amazing journey to the end of the Wall. Supported by his family they have also combined this with other aspects of home learning.
They had a history trip yesterday combined with PE as part of the Roberts virtual wall challenge and thought it would be nice to visit parts of Hadrian’s Wall as part of his challenge to do some miles. Cawfields Quarry was there first stop then onto Steel Rig car park and Sycamore gap.
We will update this page with photographs we receive so all of his friends can see his journey on the way to completing his first MEGA ultra!
Go Robert, we are all very proud of you!
*Update on 11th June*
“Robert is currently at 36 miles so about Bardon Mill as we keep saying where he would actually be on the route as he goes.
We did 8 miles on Tuesday up at the Wall and along the route which he enjoyed as you can see below, don’t think he was amused at the second 4 miles we did from Prudhoe to Wylam bridge and back though after the mornings walk / run, once he completes more we will keep you posted on the progress…”
Saturday 20th June – Roberts DONE IT!
“As you know Robert was well on his was to completing his 2020 virtual Rat Race Wall challenge, we thought we would save the last 3.5 miles for yesterday , as it would have been the original race day.
He has loved doing new routes and now knows where we will be this time next year when we complete the run in one day. We did more of the actual route from Hexham, Prudhoe, Wylam and Newcastle on his last day, as you can see below.
Well done to his brother Martin too as he has cycled what Robert has ran.”
What a glorious week and even more glorious day!
As this would have been the last day of half term, we would love to see what you have been up to in the sun. Its been fantastic weather and i am sure you will all have made the most of it…let’s start a gallery of ‘fun in the sun’ and share your photographs, whether they are ‘wild and wacky’ or ‘calm and chilled’…
Remember to keep hydrated and apply sun cream, also have BBQ everyone!
Some of our year 5 pupils have created a lovely video to let us know how much they are missing their friends and school:
Consett Junior School Year 6 Leavers have created a leaving video.
The challenge is simple – participants are asked to run/walk 5 kilometres (3.1 miles), donate £5 to the NHS, and nominate five more people to do the same.
So staff at CJS have been tagging and challenging each other…can you do this too? We have really enjoyed it and all our photos are below. How about going out as a family and doing this too…send a screenshot of your route, your photo and donation to us and we will upload to our gallery below…if you want to ‘challenge’ a member of staff we will make sure we get them on board…
You can donate to the Run for Heroes Virgin Money page via the link below.
Simply click the ‘donate’ button and you’ll be taken to a page where you can enter the amount of money you want to donate. While the challenge states you should donate £5, there’s nothing stopping you from donating more, if you want to.
