  • Young Voices at the O2

    Well, the big day that we’d all been waiting for finally arrived on Tuesday. And what a day it was! The Young Voices of St John’s certainly did themselves proud. They were fabulous. And then there was the singing. The O2 is a huge venue! On Tuesday, every child that went achieved something momentous; for some children, this might have been something deeply personal – their first time singing in front of an audience, or the first time that they had come face-to-face with the very real prospect of vertigo (we were sat rather high up!), or the first time that they had stayed up beyond 1am – but for everyone, the chance to be involved in a team (a choir) of over 7600 children, was quite something.

  • Anti-bullying Workshop

    Yesterday we visited a workshop based around anti-bullying. Two people came into school and informed us about bullying and how to treat it. They performed dozens of small plays that gave us information about how to cope with bullying. One of the characters was called Ricky and he was being bullied by Sam. The audience gave Ricky advise on how to stand up for himself. We enjoyed this because it gave us lots of ideas to stop bullying, such as: increase your confidence, body posture, contact teacher or parent and how to stand up for yourself. We found the performance amusing and interesting, due to small jokes and parts of information snuck into the performance.

  • Year 1 Visit to Carymoor Environmental Centre

    On a recent warm, damp Autumn morning, Year 1 ventured to Castle Cary to visit Carymoor Environmental Centre. When we arrived, there were posters displayed to say that Henry the Hedgehog had sadly gone missing. The staff asked if we could help them to find him, which we all agreed we would love to! Over the next few hours, we learned about Henry’s habitat and those of his friends, Freddie Fox, Vicky Vole, Bertie Badger……..
