Past Events at NFJI

The whole school recently took part in a Scary Day to celebrate Halloween, the costumes were amazing.  The children were treated to a Scary Lunch which included these scary buns and treats.

Key Stage 2 - Friday sing off

Key stage 2 have been hard at work during their singing / music sessions this half term. Upper KS2 and Lower KS2 spent the last half term preparing their songs. They experimented with singing acapella, singing in rounds, varying pitch and timbre; simply enjoying experimenting with their voices!

Please take the time to watch the videos of the songs the children learnt and performed! It was a show not to be missed!

Our local town council organised for the whole of Year 6 to visit the National Coal Mining Museum in Wakefield. Coal Mining is part of Featherstones heritage and we had such a wonderful time

Year 6 have just been put through their paces in the annual residential to Robinwood, Todmorden. The children were challenged across 15 fantastic activities over 3 days. Ace marksmen emerged at archery, logic problems were solved (eventually!), rafts were built and floated (or sunk!) and the children zipped down wires and launched themselves onto daredevil swings!!! The children were an absolute credit to the school and have been raving about the trip ever since!!!!

Our annual Wake Up Shake Up competition was a big hit! The sun was shining all the dancing was superb! We were joined by Laura Beth from Featherstone Rovers and 3 of the starlight cheerleaders. Well done to the Foundation Stage who won the trophy for KS1 for dancing to 'I like to move it!' and to Class 5/6 who won the KS2 competition by dancing to 'Let's get ready to rumble!'!

Tuesday 16th saw us host our annual sports day. The children showed their true sporting colours in a variety of races! Well done to all winners!

Our KS2 end of year production was a hit! The Year 6 children acted extremely well and KS2 sand their hearts out for our production of 'It's a hard knock life!' The children performed 3 consecutive days to different audiences and should be extremely proud. Well done!

Our rugby team entered the 'champion of champions' tag rugby event at Featherstone Rovers. They worked extremely hard and took on some incredibly difficult teams. Fantastic effort and a credit to the school Well Done!

On Tuesday, 16th April we had the privilege of watching 'The Hobbit' performed by M&M productions.  It was an hour filled with laughter, singing and some scary parts! We all really enjoyed the afternoon!

On Wednesday evening, DJ Dave got his music going for our annual Easter disco. A lot of dancing and laughng took place (not to mention the Gangnam Style and Let's get ready to rumble moves). The fantastic efforts of the Easter Bonnet decorators gave us a fantasitc bonnet parade to end the night with! Well done to the winners!

We have had a fantastic afternoon in our classes designing eggs. Some of us were really adventurous with our designs and inventive with our names! Hope you enjoy our gallery of pictures
