Friday 25th November is the School Christmas Fair at 3:00
Year 2 World War 1 Immersion Day 14.11.16
Year 2 had a WW1 Immersion day to learn about what it felt like to be living through the World War. The children built their own trenches in the playground and they wrote diary entries to share their feelings about what it was like in the trenches. The nurses practised bandaging up the wounded soldiers. Some children did sewing and all children made parkin (traditional oat ginger cake from WW1).
Year 1 Space Immersion Day 07.11.16
Year 1 had a 'Space Day' to immerse themselves all about their learning of their theme this term, Space. They dressed up, went rock hunting and sampled 'real' astronaut food!
Cake Sale 20.10.16
School Council and Mrs Mawdsley organised a very successful cake sale to raise money for playground equipment. They raised £383 and were overwhelmed with the fantastic amount of support received. Thank you so much to all the community for baking, helping on the day and buying lots of yummy cakes!! Well done School Council and Mrs Mawdsely - looking forward to seeing the new equipment you purchase.
Black History Day 20.10.16
We celebrated various famous people from History and shared all our new knowledge in assembly. It was interesting to learn about famous black people from our History.
Thank you to all our families for their generous donations to the annual Harvest Festival. We had a lovely service where all the children sang with their class and as a whole school. Our Harvest gifts are donated to the elderly members of the community. School Council delivered one of the parcels locally to an elderly gentleman who was very pleased with his gift and to meet the children.
Our school motto is 'HAPPY'. We believe by giving our children the best start to their education they will succeed and achieve their full potential. High expectations, respect, honesty and cooperation are just a few of the values we strive to instil in our pupils. These values are nurtured through our distinctive character.
We welcome and encourage a visit to our school, where you will find happy, enthusiastic, respectful and confident children learning and playing in a safe and stimulating environment. Please contact the school office for details of school visits.
At St John's we have a very supportive governing body, an active PFA (Parent, Friends Association) and a dedicated staff. We believe the best education for our children is when parents, carers, governors and staff work together as a team. We look forward to meeting you in the future.
Christian values permeate our school life at St John's. Every half term we focus on one value. This half term we are focussing on Love.
If you have any concerns over anything you see on the internet you can get advice or report any problems through the CEOPS Website.
