Robin Wood 2017

School was very quiet, when Year 6 went on their Robin Wood adventure. The children have been missed! Reports back have been of adventure, challenge and a little mischief; from braving the zip wire to secret midnight feasts, it’s safe to say the St.John’s children had a brilliant time!

Holocaust Memorial Day Assembly

This week the children in Upper KS2 were visited by Sam Kalubowila from the @aiucentre at Manchester University for a presentation on the history of Holocaust and it’s memorial day

It was an insightful assembly and showed how the events of the past can be used to help influence a better future for everyone.

Thank you to Sam and everyone from the Outreach centre for their efforts and time.

Kung Hei Fat Choy! Happy Chinese New Year!

This year Chinese New Year – The Year of the Rooster – begins on Saturday January

In Key Stage One (Years 1 and 2) we would like to mark this important cultural
celebration with a Chinese New Year Activity Day this Friday.

We love to hold special days like this in Key Stage One and the children have
thoroughly enjoyed the themed days we have already had this year such as Pirate
Day and Christmas Activity Morning. The children always work so hard and do lots
of interesting activities that they thoroughly enjoy and talk about for days, weeks,
months and even years to come!
