Everyone was enjoying being at school for the last day of term.
The previous day I had enjoyed being with Form 6 for an hour or so discussing the National Health Service, Facebook, emails, the tax system in this country, retirement age (including the age at which Josh Still would retire!), looking after the elderly with the coming evolution of people living to 100, the importance of understanding money and saving it when possible. The children were full of ideas, showing a mature interest in all we discussed and willing to listen and learn.
Today Key stage 1 went to the pantomime at The Stag Theatre at 9.30 whilst the rest of the school took part in an inter House games competition. Four Houses; Red, Yellow, Green and Blue with six different activities: Football and Hockey on the field, Maths skills, Cup Stacking, Netball in the school playground and Dodgeball in the hall. Every child took part. It was certainly competitive but with good sportsmanship on show and all so much fun in the true St John’s spirit. I had to leave 20 minutes before the end so do not know which House won but what a great way in which to spend the last day of term.
Wishing you all a Merry Christmas.
