It has been a very busy, but successful week!

All of our Year 1 children completed their statutory phonics check with their teachers, our new reception children joined us on Wednesday for their first 'Play to Learn' session, a group of children benefitted from a trip to Longleat, we competed at the local tennis tournament and came 1st, 2nd and 4th, and a group of Year 3 children performed at the Jackdaws 'Picnic and Perform' event.

I am delighted to also share with you that we have appointed Miss Larcombe to teach Ash class next year. She is known to many of the children already as she has been a regular supply teacher for us over the years.

Also, we celebrated the children's hard work and achievements this week. Well done to Jay, Thomas, Paul, Daisy, Hugo, George W, Gideon, Josie, Keiran and Lottie!

And here are our very successful tennis players:

I hope you have all had a lovely half term break. We have a very busy final half term ahead of us, starting with quite a busy first week back!

On Tuesday, a group of four Year 3 children are attending the Poetry Slam at Dillington House with Ms Bolton and Year 1 children have a sports afternoon.

On Wednesday our class photographs will be taken and our Year 2 children are attending a Tri-Golf Festival.

On Thursday some of our Year 4 children will be attending a football tournament.

Every week, up until the summer holidays, we have some exciting opportunities for the children. I look forward to seeing you all at some of these events.

We celebrated the achievements of children during our Headteacher Awards on Friday. It is lovely to hear about their achievements from Reception children learning to read and to write their names, right through to Year 4 children writing non-chronological reports!

Well done to: Chloe, Elsabeth, Lilja, Kavin, Adina, Erin, Charlie, Molly W, Max, Myla and Ben!

We were also able to congratulate our fantastic chess players who had qualified for the Somerset Megafinal, which was held at Millfield last Sunday. Well done to Oliver S, Rudy, Gabriel, Xavi, Sam S, George L, Aisha, Stan, Freddie, Jesses and Tom who all competed. An extra special well done to Gabriel, Xavi, Sam, George and Aisha who then went on to qualify for the next round at Twickenham in July. Gabriel and Aisha were also the top scorers in their age groups and won trophies and the titles Supremo and Suprema respectively. St John's dominated the top boards and medal ceremony, with ex-St John's pupils also winning older categories! Well done everyone!

A warm welcome back

We hope you all had a relaxing and enjoyable Easter break, although we know that the holiday ended rather sadly for many of you.

In our thoughts...

We were deeply saddened to learn of the death of Mark Dredge, proud father of Finley and Bradley, and uncle of Sophie and Mia. Our entire school community has been rocked by Mark's untimely death and we extend our heartfelt sympathy to all of Mark's family.

Also, in our thoughts...

We would also like to offer our condolences to Annie White, our Finance Officer, whose father died on Wednesday after a long illness. Our thoughts and prayers are with Annie and her daughter Mollie at this difficult time.

A busy first week back...

We have a busy first week back! Many children were creative during the holidays making Easter hats and decorating hardboiled eggs, which they brought into school on Tuesday. Their efforts were judged whilst the children went searching for their Easter eggs and the new golden eggs. I am relieved that I did not have to judge, as their creations were all fabulous. The children who won prizes are: Thomas, Joshua, Edward W, Lacey A, Ania, Mia H, Kizzi, Holly, Georgina, Bea, Molly M, Patrick, Ayla and Ellis. Well done everyone!

On Wednesday afternoon, the children took part in a special environment event; they had to work well in their house teams to transport water without wasting any. I hope that we will have some photos for you very soon.

On Friday we presented Headteacher Awards to: Reggie, Indigo, Florence, Jaelin, Natalia, Sienna, Charli, Catalina and Isla. Well done everyone!
