Our new school Motto!

What makes our school special? What makes us the place to be? What should our school do?

My favourite so far is ‘Belong, Believe, Achieve’

Blog Challenge 2

Blog Challenge 2 – A New Name for your Class


Are you ready for your next challenge?   Fantastic!

I would like you to think of an inspirational name for your class for September 2015. Please think very carefully and explain your reasons for choosing this name.  We already have 2 classes called Lions and Tigers, these names were chosen because of the characters of the animals; strong, brave and powerful.  You might want to think of an inspirational famous person; a Bird of Prey, for example a wise owl; a colour.  Be as creative as you like but remember to explain why you have picked your name.




How to complete your challenge.

Please reply to your class teacher on your class blog.  Suggest a new name for your Class and the reason why you think it should be called it.  Your class teacher will then pick 3 of their favourites for you to vote for.  The one with the most votes will be the winner.

Prize – £10 one4all gift voucher (one per class)

Would you like to blog yourself stupid?

Good! I Knew you would!

So here goes!

Firstly, thank you to all the lovely children who commented on my last blog, especially you Owin, you are a top chap.

Secondly, everybody else out there brace yourself for a blogtastic challenge.  Here’s what you do.

1. Go home and talk to your parents (I know that will be painful) and ask them what would be a fantastic thing for you to write about on your class blog. It must be something you and your family would desperately like to read about and might interest lots of people.

2. Share your ideas with your class teacher and the children in your class.

3. Your class teacher will listen to your idea (with a growing sense of pride in your genius) and she will then choose the one she likes best to post on your class blog using #challenge1.

4.  You, your class mates, friends, family and everyone need to get commenting on this blog.

5.  The class who gets the most comments on their blog wins a shockingly unhealthy but free trip to MacDonalds (What a top prize!)

Good luck and have fun 🙂

PS your blog should start on Monday 9th February and it will be judged on Monday 2nd March.

Hello world!

Welcome One and all to our shiny new St John’s Blog!
I’ve got my own bit, how good is that?
I can’t believe we have our blog up and running on our web site! We’ve been planning this for a while!

So why blog? Well lots of reasons really!

It gives everybody in our school community a chance to tell you and the wider world what we do and for you to share your ideas with us.
It gives our community a chance to interact with a whole learning world and benefit from shared ideas (that’s got to be good hasn’t it?)
It gives your children a world wide audience for their writing, ideas and experiences. I know that sharing will really help them develop their learning skills quickly.
With our blog, we provide a safe and controlled experience for your children to learn and benefit from all that blogging can offer, risks are few and lots of benefits are to be gained by every member of our community that joins in and responds.
I want your children to have lots of fantastic, positive and exciting learning experiences every day at our school and I strongly believe that having a chance for every child to share their thoughts and ideas and receive feedback on what they publish, will help make our community improve everyday.

I cant wait to read your comments and look forward to my next chance to ‘blog’ in a few weeks time.
Go on, take a chance and join our new cyber community!
