Early in July, Year 3 represented the academy in this year’s Carnival. We shared out tye dye tshirts and our junk-modeled, single use plastic hats. We had designed and made these in lessons this term during our study of the problem of Marine Plastic Pollution. We also made bunting banners from our tie-dye fabrics and included slogans like Save Our Seas, Ban Plastic Pollution and NJA ❤ Oceans.
Many of us met on the Barrowfields and had a great time marching through town in the happy, sunny parade. We were lucky enough to win a trophy and a certificate because we were 2nd in the very busy category of walking groups! We were very proud.
NJA was very well represented by pupils, parents and staff across the whole carnival with groups such as Rugby, Dance and Brownies. Newquay Brownies won the whole Carnival with their wonderful entry celebrating 100 years since the Suffragette movement. Eden from Year 6 received the trophy on behalf of the Brownies.
All in all, it was a Carnival to be very proud of.
