” This week was Sports Week .We did lots of different activities to do with sports such as boules, skateboarding, speed staking, athletics and finally a mini Sports Day. These sports activities were really fun. This is how you play boules, if you know how to play boules already then that’s great. You roll a big ball as close as you can to the little ball called the Jack”.

The sun is shining and today is forecast to be very hot day. It’s important to stay safe in the sunshine especially as we head towards the warmer summer days. We encourage all of our St John’s families to apply sunscreen to their children before school each day and to make sure that all children have a bottle of plain water and a suitable hat. More advice on how to enjoy the sunshine safely can be found on the NHS website.Learn More
