Year 6  found their topic on World War 1 last term fascinating and it inspired lots of great writing and art work. As the topic comes to an end what better way to consolidate all their learning by immersing the children in genuine historical artefacts from the period? The children were fortunate to spend a day with Jason King and his WW1 collection – Jason arrived at school an hour early to begin to set out the most amazing collection and he led a fabulous day where the children were fully engaged in using the collection to find out more and more about the period they have been studying. 

It was like having a museum in school – but a museum where the children could touch everything!

Year 5 had a fantastic day out on Tuesday this week at the Harry Potter Studios. It was a long day but well worth it, and the visit has added so much to their current English topic. Many thanks to all the parent volunteers who travelled with us. Here are lots of photographs from the day:

Year 6’s current history topic is World War 1 and their holiday homework was to research life in the trenches and if they wanted to, to create a model to bring back into school showing what they learnt. As you will see from the photographs below the models that were bought back into school are simply amazing! Thank you to all at home who helped out, the creativity on show is incredible. The children have also really enjoyed looking at each other’s models and talking about what they see and what they now know. Enjoy the photographs:

Sports Day 2021

We were blessed with perfect weather for this year’s Sports Day and the children all competed brilliantly. Year 3 and 4 had their Sports Day in the morning, Year 5 and 6 in the afternoon. They started with the team events, every child competing in their house over the 8 events around the field and the playground. The team events were followed by the individual obstacle race, long distance race, sprint and sprint relay finals. The whole school came out onto the field at the end of the day to hear the final result – well done to everyone in Neptune who celebrated a fine win.

It was such a shame that friends and family were not able to attend, but the children enjoyed the day nevertheless. We look forward to things returning to normal for next year’s Sports Day! Here are some photos from the day:

Year 3 have been learning all about ancient Greece and as part of this work they were tasked with creating a Greek artefact, researching it and then displaying it for visitors to the Year 3 ‘museum’. The rest of the children in the school visited the museum to see the work. Thank you to all at home who helped create these wonderful artefacts:

A really big well done to the year 4 boys football team who played this afternoon against Carnarvon Primary School. This was the first inter school football team we have played for well over a year and it was great to see so many children from both schools enjoying a sunny afternoon playing football. 

The boys were paying for the Alex Munn Interschool Trophy, and it was great to see Robert Miles retain the trophy with a fine 9 – 1 victory. Well done boys!

RMJS Remote Learning Plan

 Uncategorized  Comments Off on RMJS Remote Learning Plan
Jan 052021

In order to ensure that learning is continued in the event of national or local lockdowns and self-isolation, Robert Miles Junior School has developed the following plan. This plan offers remote learning opportunities whilst also acknowledging that some households have limited access to devices and would require hard-copies of work and resources and/or loan of a school iPad.

This plan will be applied in the following instances:

  1. An individual is self-isolating because of a positive test within the household;
  2. A group of children are self-isolating because of a case of coronavirus in the bubble;
  3. A whole bubble or cohort is self-isolating because of an outbreak of coronavirus;
  4. The whole school is closed due to staffing issues relating to coronavirus or a National Lockdown.

The plan complies with the expectations and principles outlined in the DFE document Guidance for Full Opening of Schools and Remote Education Good Practice, and meets the expectations for Remote Learning  as set out in the DfE Guidance for Schools (pages 46-50).
