• St. John’s Day

    This week we celebrated St John’s Day at school.  Key stage one were lucky enough to be part of a drama assembly, kindly put on by volunteers from Welton Baptist Church and then followed up with some dove themed crafts in class.  Years 5 and 6 visited the church, freely exploring the different parts and were all excited to be able to climb the tower!  Each child in the school created bunting which depicts what is special about them or our school – this will be out on display for you all to see for future events.


  • GOLD Sports Mark Award

    The School Games Mark is a government led awards scheme launched in 2012 to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community.  We are very proud to announce that this year St John’s has achieved the Gold School Games Mark for our commitment, engagement and delivery of competitive school sport this year!


  • Trip to Holburne Museum

    Year 3 visited the Holburne Museum in Bath where they became real life surveyors and architects for the day!

  • Art Week

    Pupils have enjoyed Art Week which finished with a Gallery of Work in our Studio.

  • Year 5 Greek Day

    Year 5 had an amazing Greek Day.  Everyone dressed up, made shields, tasted Greek food, designed mosaics and took part in a Greek Olympics.  More Photos are on the Year 5 page.

  • Royal Wedding Celebrations

    Pupils and staff celebrated the Royal Wedding in style last Friday with everyone dressing either as a wedding guest or with a patriotic theme.   A giant ‘street party’ was held on the playground at lunchtime with themed activities being enjoyed throughout the day including the decoration of biscuits and making Union Jack flags to wave enthusiastically during the wedding.

  • Visit by Lambs

    Pupils in Reception today were visited by three lambs from the farm at the Wellow Trekking Centre.  Despite the rain, the children enjoyed venturing out onto the muddy playing field in their wet-weather gear to learn about the lambs and experience feeding time.


  • World Book Day

    We celebrated World Book Day today with everyone dressing up as their favourite book character.

  • MP Visit

    Today Jacob Rees-Mogg visited our school to talk to the School Council and Year 5 about current issues which they had identified as being important to them.  The children thoroughly enjoyed quizzing our local MP on a variety of topics including;  hospitals, education and the environment.

  • 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.
