Special Events

Children In Need

We had a great time celebrating Children in Need on Friday 17th November – Mrs Johnson and Miss Batson organised a cake sale, face painting, a special Pudsey Bear cake raffle and a surprise appearance from a very special guest! We also had a class competition to make the longest line of money, which Class Newton won with a line of over 20 metres! In our assembly, the best dressed child from each class was chosen for a special prize, given out by none other than Spiderman himself!

With all the kind contributions from our children, parents and staff, we raised an enormous £1000 for Children in Need! We are very proud of the money raised – well done everyone!

Growth Mindset Day

On Monday 25th September, we had some very special visitors at CJS to help us to celebrate Growth Mindset day. Paul Sturgess (Britain's tallest man and professional basketball player) and Mark Waters (basketball coach) came in to help some of the children develop some new basketball skills. All over the school, our wonderful children were applying a growth mindset to learning a new skill; some classes were drafting, critiquing and improving their drawings, others building card towers, learning languages, constructing spaghetti towers - you name it! The children had a wonderful day and developed skills that they didn't know they had yet! 

Roald Dahl Day

On Wednesday 13th September, staff and children at CJS dressed up as their favourite characters to celebrate the work of one of Britain's most loved authors (and name sake of one of our year 3 classes!) - Roald Dahl! Each teacher picked an impressive outfit and the winners got to choose a brand new book to take home. Our staff winner was Mr Wilson, who made a convincing Mr Twit! The teachers organised lots of fun activities to celebrate Roald Dahl day and staff and children had a great time.
