Extra Special Assembly

Our Extra Special assembly takes place each Friday at 2pm.

All children at Newsome Junior School are considered special, but two children from each class are chosen to receive a certificate for being Extra Special; they may have produced a great piece of work in class, demonstrated super behaviour or made an exceptional effort to impress.

Other certificates earned in school are also awarded in our Extra Special Assembly. These include: Number Bonds (for Year 3), Times Table Awards, Challenge 250 Spelling and Swimming awards.

Children are also encouraged to bring in awards that they have gained outside school time so that we can celebrate these achievements too. These awards reflect the vast range of activities our children take part in, such as: swimming, karate, dancing and reading challenges at the local library.

Our Extra Special Assembly is also an opportunity for our school sports teams to feed back from sporting events they have attended.
