Happy Birthday Queen Elizabeth II

Over the half-term holiday, children were invited to create their own Crazy Crown to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday.  They were also invited to make a birthday card too!

The winning entries were judged by some of our School Councillors and received their certificates in assembly.  Have a look at their fantastic designs below!

Bradford city penalty shoot out for charity!

1/7/2015

Yesterday,the whole school had a penalty shoot out outside of the dining room. The penalty shootout was lead by Bradford City F.C and we managed to raise lots of money for charity and school.People who tried to raise money got to take four penalty’s against the chicken Billy Bantam from Bradford city and people who didn’t raise any money still got a chance to take a penalty at the end of the shootout. At the end of the shoot out of course no-one wanted to be left out so the teachers had a shot at Billy Bantam too! if you are wondering if you raise at least £3 you will get a medal and if you raise £20 or over you will get your a self a Bradford city football and maybe a medal! But the best… if you raise the most money out of the whole shootout you will get a unique Bradford City F.C football signed by Bradford city footballers!thnk you for putting in the effort to raise money and we are very grateful for your conturbiton to our fund today. The charity’s and our school are very delighted with all the money raised today and soon we may edit this post to tell you the grand total of money raised yesterday! We are all looking forward till we get our prizes.

Wear Amber and Claret Day

Today we asked everyone to bring in £1 to wear Amber and Claret for the day. We were raising money for the Plastic Surgery and Burns Research Unit (PSBRU) founded by Prof. David Sharpe following the fire disaster at Bradford City Football Club’s home ground, Valley Parade.

We would like to thank everybody who brought in their £1. We raised a total of £465!

Everybody at St John’s is very grateful to Brooke in Year 3 for her suggestion to raise money for this worthy charity.

Have a look at our photography below of Key Stage Two in their non-uniform Amber and Claret.

Sycamore visit a mosque

Sycamore class were very interested in our visit to the mosque today. Our guide, Nadeem Khan, was very interesting and showed us many areas of the mosque. We visited two very large prayer rooms; Year 2 were amazed at their size. We also visited the room where Muslims complete Wudu before entering the mosque to pray. We were very lucky whilst inside the mosque because the call to prayer started so we were able to listen to this together.

Whilst visiting, we thought carefully about how Muslims create a sense of belonging. We learnt how Muslims always face the same way to prayer so even if a Muslim was praying alone, they would know that many other Muslims around the world would also be facing the same way!

Sycamore class were very well behaved throughout their visit; a true credit to St John’s!

Good Citizen and Hobbies and Interests Awarded

Over the last couple of days Year 3 and 4 children have been presenting their Hobbies and Interests to our Head Boy and Head Girl and Miss Simpson. There has been a variety of different hobbies which have really interested the panel of judges!

On Wednesday afternoon, Eric Bland, one of our Foundation Governors, visited school to listen to some Good Citizen presentations from Years 5 and 6 children. Mr Bland and Mr Lupton were so impressed by all of the presentations that each of the children were awarded their Good Citizen Badges.

Thank you Callum for the photographs too.
