Welcome to St John’s Class


Our class is made up of the most wonderful Year Two and Year Three children.

Our grown-ups are Mrs Grindlay,

Mrs Cavallari and Mrs West.

Class Information


Home to School Book

Each child has a Home to School Book which eases the two-way communication between parents and our Staff. We use a child’s book to make parents aware of any specific events that have happened during any session or to make our staff aware of any events (good or bad!) that may have happened at home.

We believe in working in a strong partnership with our children’s parents and carers many of whom cannot always be at school for drop-off and pick-up. This book will enable daily contact with the teacher if desired.  An example of this communication may be a note telling the teacher that a child is going home with another pupil etc.  If you have entered a note into the book please make your child aware so that they can hand the book to the teacher at the beginning of the day.

Any absences, requests for a holiday or medicinal issues must still go through the school office.


Reading Records

If your child is in Year 3 they will have received a green KS2 reading record.  This will still need to be completed either by the parent or the child to show any reading that has taken place – on a daily basis where possible.  If your child has read a particularly enjoyable book, we have book review templates here in school that they could complete and we will then display them in the classroom for other pupils to read. A link to this document is attached. KS2 Book Review Template


Exciting Events and Weekly News


Timetable Change:  PE in St John’s Class will be on Monday and Tuesday as from 8th October 2018. Please  ensure that your child has their PE kit in school on both days. Thank you.

Archie the Ragdoll Cat came to visit today

A big well done to Annie and Katy who were brave enough to carry out their fantastic “Time to Talk” presentations this week.  Annie gave a wonderful presentation and introduced Goldie her teddy bear to the class and Katy introduced us all to the world of Pokemon.  Both girls had clearly put a lot of work into their presentations and gave confident and articulate performances to the class.  The children answered a lot of questions from class members and I am very proud of their efforts.
