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.
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
The whole school came together this morning to celebrate our Harvest Festival. We were visited by Frances Atkins from the Bradford Metropolitan Food Bank who gratefully received our food donation to help families in need. She was also delighted to accept a cheque for over £500 from money raised by our School Council and some bake sales in Key Stage Two!
The School Choir also sang to two songs, Lean On Me and Love Can Build A Bridge. Francis explained that the logo for the Bradford Food Bank has a bridge on it with two people meeting, one giving food to the other.

Year 6 led the assembly in preparation for their Harvest Worship at St Christopher’s Church on Sunday. The School Choir will also be singing some songs on Sunday too! Everyone is very welcome to come along too.
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…
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!
