St John's School Watford - News and Events
What a night! We hosted our first ever Teach Meet last night and it was so worth it. The torrential downpour as we welcomed colleagues to school for our very first Teach Meet may have moved our outdoor garden party inside, but it didn’t dampen any of the enthusiasm. Bunting was up, nibbles and and drinks ready and it wasn’t long before the inspiration and energy filled the room. It was a wonderful night that we shared with colleagues, both within school and from other schools, from Watford and further afield.
We will be uploading some pictures and information to our Teach Meet page in due course.
It was wonderful to welcome our neighbours, McGinley, into our school last week where they were really impressed to find out all about the journey that the school is on. Due to their generous donation, we now have the start of a fabulous maths lending library which will extend the maths skills of our children.Learn More
This term we started what will hopefully be a long and fruitful partnership with the UTC in Watford. Their Associate Principal, John Quinn, came with four students and boxes of IT to hold an IT workshop with our children. Our children experienced programming robots around a course and learnt about where computers are used in different aspects of everyday life. Minnie and Robert were fascinated with the robots.
“We made the robots go backwards and forwards by using the controls. We had never controlled a robot before. We liked working with the older students as they helped us to use the controls. We would like them to come again.”Learn More
We have been so lucky that the Boogie Bears School of Dance offered us a free visit and liked working with our children so much that they keep coming back!. Our children have experienced ballet, frog dancing and drama sessions. Elsie and Sarah Fatema liked learning to balance, hop, jump and run.
“The teachers were kind as they helped us to learn how to do dances and drama. They were good teachers as they were smiley and kind and helped us to do new things.”Learn More
