Y6 Residential to London - Tuesday 21st – Wednesday 22nd May 2024
Each year we look to offer the children a chance to enjoy experiences beyond the classroom which is why the school endeavours to offer a variety of educational visits. We hope to recognise the hard work the year 6 children have put in throughout school by taking them on a residential visit to London.
As a guide, the cost of the residential will be approximately £250. This cost would include the following: transport, accommodation in a hotel, breakfast(s) in the hotel, tour of the city, evening meal(s) at a restaurant, West End theatre show, packed lunch(es), McDonalds meal on return journey and other activities such as a flight on the London Eye and Thames river cruise.
Payment for the Y6 residential will be collected in 6 installments as follows:
Installment 1- £41.66 to be paid by 31 October 2023.
Installment 2 - £41.66 to be paid by 30 November 2023.

During yesterday's science lesson, year 6 learnt about the early pioneers of electricity. Afterwards, they put their new found knowledge to the test by ordering a time line of the history of electricity.
We have been working incredibly hard on their writing in recent weeks. Here they are working with their peer partners to celebrate, share and enjoy their work.
What an amazing two days in London!
We did it year 6! Time to let our hair down and have some fun!
We would like to congratulate all of our year 6 children on all their hard work this week during their assessments. They have really given their all to each test.
Many congratulations to these three year 6 children who have been awarded their pen licence.

Our first games cafés took place this afternoon. Parents, carers and family members were invited to take part in (or lead) a game involving their child.
In computing, we are using Crumble kits, which are great to support young children so they can quickly and very easily learn coding and simple electronics.

Paul Klee was a Swiss-German artist, whose work was influenced by Expressionism, Cubism, and Surrealism. He was also very interested in the theory of color.
In science, on Thursday we started learning about the circulatory system (with some help from our medical students!). The children acted the roles of each organ to help their understanding. They had someone as the lungs, someone as the heart and someone as the 'rest of the body' with the rest of the class representing the flow of blood between these.
At St John's we value reading for pleasure and sharing stories with others. Discussing books and interacting with other people develops social and language skills, builds imagination and supports a lifelong joy of reading.
Week commencing 14th November
This week is Sheffield Schools Skipathon week.
Our great art work is now on display.
