A report of the recent Tag Rugby Festival for Year 5 and 6. Written by Josh Lodge in Year 6.
On Thursday 11th October, local schools from Hitchin, Letchworth and Baldock took part in a Tag Rugby Festival held at Letchworth Rugby Club. St. John’s entered three teams made up of students from Years 5 and 6.
There were smiling faces everywhere as the teams got stuck in with tries being scored left, right and centre. It was a non-competitive tournament but everyone had someone to beat. The weather was beautiful with the sun out and skies clear. Everyone really enjoyed themselves. Teachers, parents and children were all smiling from start to finish. A big thank you to Mr Baker, Miss Bailes and Mr Wilson for managing the three teams.
A report of the recent local Football Tournament. Written by Toby Hales in Year 6.
On Thursday 4th October 2018, local schools from Letchworth and Baldock participated in a Football Tournament held at St. Christopher’s School. We started really well against Sandon drawing 1 – 1, thanks to a goal from Aidan.
Our confidence grew as the tournament went on, with a stunning victory over St. Christopher 3 – 0. Aidan picked up two more with Blue getting the other.
St. John’s moved from strength to strength with a 4 – 0 victory over St. Nicholas. Once again Aidan was on the scoresheet with two, with Blue matching him.
Game Four saw St. John’s come up against a tough team in the Lordship School. After a tight game, Blue stole a winner with yet another clean sheet thanks to Henry and Kian.
The final group game was against a very good St. Mary’s team. Despite our best efforts, St Mary’s snuck through with a 1 – 0 win. St Mary’s went on to win the Tournament.
St. John’s had a 5th place playoff against the mighty Hartsfield. Fortunately, St. John’s triumphed 1 – 0 with Blue scoring the match winning goal.
It was a great start to the season and a real team performance from all the boys. A special mention to Ollie Jardine who created a number of goals and the great work by Henry in defence and Kian in goal.
A big thank you goes to our coach, Mr Baynham, for preparing our team so well.
On Wednesday 26th September 2018, St. John’s took part in a wonderful and enriching day of learning new languages from across the continent. These were expertly lead by our own staff, who unknown to many of us, can speak a variety of different languages.
This involved a journey around the school and time spent in each classroom learning about language and culture. A huge thank to Ms Bull who led the whole day.
We are delighted to announce the fantastic news that we have been awarded 1st place in the TESCO bags for help scheme.
A huge thank you to all who ‘dropped the coins for us’ to help us grow our sensory and calming area within the St. John’s environment, and for the suggestions offered to us during the process.
