We hope you and your families have enjoyed a lovely February half term break.  Lent is a very special time at school as we prepare for Easter.  The children will be working towards their Easter Liturgy performance during Holy Week and focussing on a Stations of the Cross display to be displayed for the whole school to see and help their understanding of a stage of Jesus's journey to his crucifixion.

Maths: Tuesday / Wednesday / Thursday at 8.30am

Debate: Friday at 8am

 

Please don't forget that Twitter is updated regularly, so you'll see lots of learning and experiences taking place on there.  Mrs Godding can be contacted on info@stjohnsrc.net.
