We are very proud of our previous Year 6’s for their involvement in helping to create this amazing mural in Three Bridges by the railway station, they designed part of the image along with other schools, which has been incorporated into the design, I am sure you will agree the end result is stunning.
We have many proud moments in our school year. One of our proudest is The “Anne Newson” Award Assembly. This Award is dedicated to the memory of a former Governor who, at an early age, passed away due to illness, some years ago. We honour her bravery, her resilience and her positivity by giving this yearly award to one child in every year group. Staff in the year group select the child who have shone throughout the year in all manner of ways and no matter what adversity might have beset them. These children truly reflect our MJS values.
We also have new award in memory of Ursula Woods called “The Spirit of Sport”, this is an annual award given to one child in the school for sport. This could be sporting achievements, sporting attitudes or an act of fair play and support for others. Congratulations to Hayden in Year 5 for winning this year’s award. This was awarded for an incredible act of sportsmanship during a recent Maidenbower Mile.
This morning we had a very emotional assembly, attended by parents and friends of the five chosen children. We heard in turn from their teachers as to why they are so deserving of the Award. I don’t think there was a dry eye in the house by the end of the assembly!
Well done to such deserving winners. We are all immensely proud of you!
Well done to our Year 3’s for putting together an amazing display of all their learning for the Roman era, work was displayed via art, writing, electronic presentations and quizzes and was enjoyed by all the other year groups, our new Year 2 children who will be joining us in September, and all parents, grandparents and carers. We thought you may enjoy a small selection of photo’s of the showcase.
We have been celebrating World Book day at Maidenbower Junior and are enjoying the vast array of costumes and dressing up, and the wonderful imagination of our children and parents, we have Harry Potters, Wally’s, Disney, animals, PT Barnum’s, Boys in dresses, Tom Gates, and so many many more, here is a few of the many photos we have taken and are able to share with you.
Thank you to all parents, carers and grandparents for supporting and providing outfits for today.
