Hi Lions and Tigers smiley

The topic page will be updated weekly with ideas of what you can do at home! I  will be updating it weekly linking to the topic being taught in school as well as maths and literacy ideas. All of the other pages will remain if you wish to use the resources. The Oak Academy and BBC bitesize are also great resources to use (details are at the bottom of the page)!

 Please continue using your class email or to share evidence of your learning or tapestry! Please only use these email addresses and tapestry for sharing evidence of learning, general questions and queries should continue to be communicated via the school office.

Keep up the fantastic hard work and I hope to see you all really soon,

Mrs Webster smiley

A message to our St John's family...

Returning to school


Please find below videos, PowerPoints and stories to support  your child if they are returning to school on the 8th June, we hope it helps you a little to prepare. We are really looking forward to seeing all of you smiley

Follow the Buddy Bots gang as they return to their school, after being at home with their families in lockdown due to coronavirus!

Watch as they find out what has changed, what that means for them and discover that even though change can be scary at first, it can also be lots of fun.

A great way to support children during their return to the classroom after lockdown.

You will need to create a free account to access the e-book as well as lots of supporting resources.

You’ll get a free, downloadable pack of goodies to help you plan your wild month, plus lots of ideas to inspire you to stay wild all throughout June (and beyond!). For extra ‘bonus’ items, keep an eye on your emails for additional, fun activities, from instructions for baking hedgehog cupcakes to a beginner’s guide to wildlife photography.
