St John's CE (VC) Primary School

Life in all its fullness

Friday 7th October

Please could you go on an autumn walk with your child this weekend (weather permitting!) 

Talk to them about the changes in the season and it would be super if you could collect some things for our nature tray e.g. acorns, pine cones, leaves, conkers etc.

We will use their finds as part of our science and maths lessons in school.

Thank you!


We will also be going on a walk to a local woods next week so just a reminder about having wellies in school and a waterproof coat!

Let's Get Fit | Version 3 | Count to 100 | Exercises for Kids | 100 Days of School | Jack Hartmann

One of our count to 100 by ones song, with new exercises that are great for the classroom or at physical education. Jack Hartmann consulted with physical education teachers in developing this new count to 100 song.

This count to 100 song includes some creative and fun new exercises and some physical education positions that are required in PE. I have included cross lateral movements that are so important for body and brain connections and improved brain coordination. Studies have linked increased academic performance to cross lateral movements.


Welcome to READ IT AGAIN! THE FAMILY BOOK by Todd Parr is a great children's book about the different ways families are unique. Every family is special! Enjoy this read aloud book!

In this Cosmic Kids guided relaxation, we find a balloon and it carries us to our favourite place, a place where we feel strong and happy.🌈 We will be doing a lot of relaxation activities in class to help the children to manage their well being and emotions. Please have a go and let us know how it went at home.
