Easter Worship

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!

 

Nativities

The Nursery and Foundation Show ‘Angel Express’ told the story of a group of angels reading about Mary and Joseph who then practiced their song about the wonderful news.

The Key Stage One Show Mary’s Midwife Crisis told the story of Mary and Joseph travelling to Bethlehem whilst their very ‘helpful’ midwife and donkey tried to prepare for the arrival of the new baby to be born.

Our silver collection at the end of each performance raised over £440. The School Council are very grateful for all of the donations given; they will decide which charity to donate the money to in the New Year.

Children in Need

Both children and adults dressed up as superheroes on Friday to raise money for Children in Need. Some adults and children even wore their underpants on the outside of their clothes!

The School Choir were particularly busy in the evening, performing a number of times live on the national and local Children in Need programme. They have also appeared in the Telegraph and Argus newspaper too!  You can watch the choir perform by clicking the link below.

Well done everyone who took part; we raised over £440 for Children in Need.

“In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.'” Acts 20:35

Poetry Competition

Think of a poem

Thursday 2nd October is National Poetry Day! To celebrate, St John’s CE Primary School has launched a poetry writing competition. The theme this year is…

Remember logo

You could write a poem about an event e.g. Bonfire Night, the Great Fire of London, the Olympics or one of the World Wars. It could be about a person such as the Queen, William Shakespeare or even a family member or friend! You could choose to write about a special memory for you such as a birthday, a holiday or a special pet. Your poem can be about absolutely anything as long as it fits under the theme ‘Remember’.

You can choose any style of poem e.g. an acrostic, a haiku or even a shape poem. Think carefully about your presentation, as well as the words, as this could gain you extra marks with the guest judge!

The closing date for the competition is Wednesday 1st October. All entries should be handed to class teachers along with your name and class written on it. Prizes will be awarded in an extra special assembly on National Poetry Day!

I can’t wait to hear your fabulous poems!

 

 

 

 

Year 2 – What is inside a computer?

Year 2 have been learning about what goes on inside a computer. We have created our own computers (our of paper!) first. Yesterday and today we have then opened up the real computers to see if we can spot the same components we added to our paper boxes (CPU, RAM and a Hard-drive).

We were impressed with how many other parts were also inside the case and will be trying to find out more about them next week!
