Yet another busy week at St John's! Year 3 have been rehearsing hard in the hall, ready for their performance this week, Year 2 thoroughly enjoyed 'The Three Little Pigs Gazebo' and sharing stories with Year 4 children, and Year 1 have been on a material hunt!
The grown ups have also been really busy! Ms Bolton led the rest of the teachers in their Professional Development Meeting on 'Putting Learning First', and I attended a very interesting conference on 'Growth Mindset' on Friday.
Headteacher Awards were presented for: having a great first week at St John's, working hard on writing and number, being the best they can, using lots of adjectives and adverbs in story writing, telling the time, recognising numbers to 10, joining in really well, using speech marks, not giving up, science experiments, growing in confidence, enthusiasm to learn, punctuating questions correctly and understanding fractions.
Well done to: Oleander, Aimee, Ruben, Jude, Ava, Telia, Adina, Mia, Sonny, Bea, Jago, Alya, Alice G and Luke!
