A huge thank you, to the students who came in on Friday to educate our Year 6 children on the law.
The experience brought the legal system to life in a fun and interactive way, by acting out scenarios from familiar stories and settings.
Thankfully, nobody was imposed to serve any custodial sentence or punishment!If any parents or carers would like a re-trial please get in touch.
As part of the on-going celebrations for the Year of Mercy, CAFOD came into school and shared the story of the Lampedusa Cross. A small wooden cross carved from the remains of the Lampedusa Boat which was sea-wrecked into 2013. The Cross is a symbol of hope and helps underpin the values of the Year of Mercy towards one another and especially to the people who are less fortunate at this time of year.
This morning parents and carers were invited into the classrooms to look at and celebrate the amazing work produced by the children. There was an electric atmosphere around the school, and the children were buzzing with pride to show off their work!!
Thanks to all the parents and carers who came this morning and of course to the children who put the hard work in, all year around !
This morning the PTA held host for a festive coffee morning, with a brilliant turnout. There was a fantastic atmosphere, with cakes and treats and a range of clothes and bath/shower products all being snapped up. Attendees were also treated to a fantastic performance from the Gypsies of Bohemia who played some popular songs with their own acoustic twist!

Using chalk, the children have been practising their methods and understanding of inverse equations, number lines and times tables – taken from Singapore maths lessons! Well Done Children!!
Year 4 enjoyed a fun day out visiting Ordsall Hall in Salford, the historic home of the Radclyffe family. Upon arriving, we were transported back in time to the Middle Ages! The local folk were quite bemused by our modern ideas like, ‘The Internet’ and ‘iPads’. They soon whipped us into shape and organised us by class at the dining table! We even had a few people trying on suits of armour!
To our relief, at the end of the day we got transported back to 2016. However, the Middle Ages’ idea of only one bath a year was quite a consolation prize for many children if we had been stuck forever!
As we come to the end of another successful week at St.John’s, let’s look back at some of the action that took place!!
We’ve had a week of swimming, running and even ice skating for workout week, a nursery stay and play afternoon, a spooky trip to Ordsall Hall and even had a go at the manikin challenge !
Year had a great afternoon making lanterns. We have been invited to bring our lanterns down to Beech Road Park on Thursday 24th November. The children will be given LED lights & cane to carry their lanterns.
A huge thanks to We R Adventurers gave up their time to support our lantern making. Thanks guys!

A big well done to the children who participated in the Chorlton School Maths Quiz! They were a credit to St Johns’s in the way in which they showed great team spirit and great sportsmanship towards the other teams from the Chorlton schools. Not only that, but their excellent behaviour was commented on too! Great job working together to solve the problems presented!
