On Tuesday the 7th March Mr Qualter took four children from year 4 to compete in the annual Tong High Mini Tennis competition. The children played six matches each against other Schools from within the area.On the day there was some fantastic tennis played from every competitor which made the standard of the tournament very high.St Johns C E Primary School finished in first place and will go on to represent the area in the Bradford Summer Games. A big well done to everybody who took part.
On Thursday 26th January a squad of five children were selected to represent St John’s at the annual Basketball league. The league runs over two evenings with the second event taking place on the 2nd February. In the first round of games, St John’s played some fantastically well ensuring that they came away with two victories out of four games. This put them in a good position going into the final round of games.

This half term during our indoor PE gymnastics, we have been looking at rolls and balances. Here are a few groups who worked well to put a short routine together.
We are delighted to announce that St John’s C E Primary School have raised a fantastic £2876 for the NSPCC. Years 1 to 6 took part in the sponsored fun run in the last week of half term. The children thoroughly enjoyed tackling the track that was set up on the field. Every child ran or walked at least 1 mile. All the children that took part should be very proud of what they have achieved individually and as a school. Also a big thank you to those who sponsored a child; your support is very much appreciated by the school and the NSPCC.
Enjoy the pictures.
