If you have some free time over half term and fancy lending a hand at school, please see below for details.
These important assessment activities will be carried out during the week beginning Monday 8th May. Our young students have worked very hard in preparation for their ‘SAT’s’ – we are certain that they will do well.
Parents, please make sure that your children have lots of lovely early nights and are in school in good time throughout this week.
(No absences can be ‘authorised’ during this week.)
Thank you all for your engagement with our recent Parents Evenings. During these, some parents asked for more information about how handwriting is taught. We have gathered together some useful resources from Penpals (our handwriting scheme), our policy on handwriting and the original parents evening PowerPoint delivered in February. We hope these resources provide further clarity.
With sadness, today we say goodbye to Mrs Chrysandreas.
Mrs Chrysandreas has been with St John’s since 2010 and has served our children and school community with love and dedication in that time.
We wish her well in all her future adventures – may the Light of Christ continue to shine within and around her as she moves forwards.
Farewell Mrs C – with love from all your friends at St John’s.
Cambridge Science Festival Maths Day takes place Saturday 25 March, 12 noon – 4pm. We think this is a great opportunity to learn more about maths in a fun environment for all ages. The event will be held at the Centre for Mathematical Sciences, Wilberforce Road, Cambridge CB3 0WA.
“From Isaac Newton onwards, Cambridge has been associated with some of the most famous mathematicians in history. Modern mathematicians and theoretical physicists work on everything from the Big Bang to number theory, from geometry to modelling the shrinking of Arctic sea ice, exploring quantum information or understanding how disease epidemics spread.
Join volunteer staff and students from the Faculty of Mathematics to share the excitement of the subject through hands-on activities, games and demonstrations (featuring everything from custard to cosmology!) for visitors of all ages from 8 through to adult.
The Maths Public Open Day happens only once every two years and last took place in 2015. The event also offers a very rare opportunity to explore inside the fluids dynamics laboratory hidden beneath the lawn of one of the most beautiful modern buildings in Cambridge. Hands-on fluids activities and demos will explore some of the areas Cambridge applied mathematicians work on, ranging from bacteria to avalanches.
This event is part of the 2017 Cambridge Science Festival. No booking needed – drop in throughout the event (12 noon – 4pm).”
