Early Years Sports Day 2019

After rearranging the early years sports day to Tuesday 2nd July, the weather was much kinder to us and the Nursery and Reception classes enjoyed an afternoon full of fun. Find below a selection of images from the afternoon.

Mark and @Montydogge visit us

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.

St John's host this years KS1 Mini Olympics

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.

‘Lucy's Blue Day’ Author, Chris Duke Visit

We were really pleased to welcome Chris Duke, the author of ‘Lucy’s Blue Day’ to the academy today. Chris travelled all the way down from Scotland to spend time with us this morning.

During the assembly Chris spoke to the children from Nursery up to Year 2 about how and why he became an author. The children were really engrossed in what Chris had to say and asked lots of amazing questions. Chris also shared with us some ideas he has for future books about Lucy. He even told us about a secret book he’s working on! We’ve all promised not to say anything about it, but it sounds really interesting and we look forward to reading it in the future.

We are very thankful to Chris for taking the time to come and visit us. The children showed great enthusiasm throughout the assembly and it was wonderful to see the enjoyment on their faces.

Below are some images of Chris’s time with us.
