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.
All children and staff attended our Easter Worship yesterday some Governors also visiting too. Our recorder club started our worship by performing Peace Perfect Peace. Despite their stage fright they impressed everyone with their first performance.
We sang a number of songs including Servant King and Hurray for Jesus. Everyone was given their palm cross and held them carefully during our Easter prayers. Some of our Year 6 children had prepared their own video version to accompany the hymn See What a Morning.
As the children left the hall they were also given an Easter Egg treat!
This morning, just after assembly, eight School Councillors from KS1 and KS2 worked with Mr Woodcock and Mr Knight to tidy up the entrance to our school. The small patch of ground just outside of our school had been identified as untidy by a child in KS2. They had suggested to Callum and Rose, our Head Boy and Head Girl, that some school councillors could tidy it up. Not wanting to disappoint, the school council leapt into action and took some direct action.
Have a look at the before and after photos to see the difference they have made!
St John’s today had a successful Red Nose Day with lots of funny faces and red noses hanging about. The children were all dressed in red clothes. A huge thank you to the school councillors (including myself) for coming to school at 8:15 to raise money in the morning and staying at school until 3:30 the raise money after school. Thank you to all of the parents and children who donated to red nose day funds at school as it makes a massive difference to the comic relief funds, and remember, every penny that you have donated today is another penny as the UK Government are going to double the money that we have raised today. Even if you didn’t donate to us today thank you as well for coming in in red clothes and if you bought an red nose any where that’s still money donated. Once again a big thank you to the school councillors and everyone else who contributed today to red nose day.
