This afternoon the Year 6’s held their last assembly with us all being thoroughly entertained and making us feel emotional. Below are some images from the assembly along with one of the videos that was shown.
We managed to rearrange the Years 1,2 & 3 Sports Day to Tuesday 9th July. The Year 1 pupils were especially excited as it was their first opportunity to take part in the older years format of our Sports Day, taking part in events like the sprint, obstacle course plus much more.
Here are some images and highlights video from the day.
On Wednesday 19th June we had a special visit from author Mark Sanders and his dog Monty. Mark read one of his wonderful stories to the children in assembly which they thoroughly enjoyed. All Mark's stories feature Monty the dog so we were so glad he could come along and visit too. After the assembly, Mark and Monty went to visit all the younger children in their classes to answer any questions, although Monty did steal the show!
The children all wanted to give Monty a stroke and he was more than happy to let them.
On Tuesday 18th June, the weather was kind enough to fit in this years Sports Day for Years 4, 5 & 6. The competition was fierce with only a few points separating the teams resulting in the Red team winning overall. Well done to everyone taking part and a special thanks to the Parents who took part in the Tug of War!
Highlights video will be released soon!

Today saw us here at St John’s host the KS1 Mini Olympics for local schools. We were pleased to welcome Cheslyn Hay, Glenthorne, Havergal and Featherstone Academy for the annual event which saw all the schools competing in a variety of Olympic style events.
The morning started with all the schools reading out the Olympic oath and then parading their amazing torches that were made by the schools to the onlooking parents.
Pupils took part in a wide range of events like sprints, relays, obstacle and others with all the children participating in at least one event each. Looking at all the smiles that were on display it looks like everyone had a great time!
We’d like to thank all the staff and also St John’s Sport’s Leaders who helped make the event run so smoothly.
