This term our quality text is the Watertower by Gary Crew.  It is a mysterious and rather eerie story, told through the brief narrative alongside a set of intriguing illustrations by Steven Woolman.

World Book Day 2018

The theme of World Book Day at NSJ this year was “Word are ours”, inspired by the poem by Michael Rosen.

Watch this video and see Michael Rosen performing his poem and explaining his idea behind it.

Throughout the day we had lots of opportunities to become ‘NSJ Word Wizards’: playing Articulate, making up ‘Fast Poems’, playing fast and furious rounds of Stop the Bus, and here we are presenting our own words in a game of Call my Bluff.

William Shakespeare and the Scarecrow from the Wizard of Oz also put in an appearance to join in the fun!
