English - National Poetry Day
Year 6 took inspiration from Michael Rosen's poem, 'On the Move Again' and wrote their own poems. Each and every one was fuelled with emotion and powerful messages. Thomas and Majka were chosen to represent St. John's and take part in the SHARES Poetry Competition. Out of 14 primary schools, we were successful and won the event, gaining first and second place!
Collective Worship - Stay and Pray
Inviting our school families to share our Collective Worship together.

English - Being question tag detectives!
Faith in Action
Year 6 children organised a Harvest collection in school. They gather foods together, created our school display and passed our collection over to our local foodbank charity - St Vincent de Paul.
Faith in Action
At Christmas, Year 6 designed Christmas cards and shared them with members of our local care homes.
Children wrote their own Christmas wishes for children around the world. They took the time to reflect on their own lives compared to those who live in conflict in countries such as the Ukraine or those who live in third world countries.
PSHE - Celebrating Differences
We celebrate time together each day by sharing our Collective Worship. An opportunity to think of God, his presence, learn about stories from the Bible and to reflect whilst all being together.
Science - Learning about how light travels and how shadows are formed.
PSHE - Promoting the importance of being kind, caring and compassionate
Year 6 enjoyed a visit to our parish church, St. Mary Queen of the Apostle. Father Kenny gave us a guided tour of the church and children had the opportunity to ask questions.
