'Display of the Week' - Fantastic artwork on display in Year One based on the artist Piet Mondrian. Learning inspired by the concepts of abstract art, shape, colour and colour mixing.
In science, Year 4 have been learning about solids and liquids. Did you know, oobleck is a non-Newtonian fluid which means that under force it can change to be either more liquid or more solid? The children were very enthusiastic about exploring oobleck!
What's been happening at ESJ this week? Welcome to 'Sixty Seconds of St. John's'...
Just when you think everyone's gone home and there's no-one left to teach, in comes an inquisitive new pupil! A cheeky robin tries to join in Mr. Henson's Y3 class learning!
Year 6 - beetles in pen. Amazing!
Year 3 have been learning about the mummification process for their topic on Ancient Egyptians.
Some wonderful writing coming out of Year 3. Look at these amazing Stone Age Home posters.
Year 4 have written some fantastic descriptive pieces inspired by different circus acts. The children wrote in the style of Angela McAllister and enjoyed experimenting with different font shapes and sizes. Their finished pieces are full of the magic of the circus!
School is very colourful today with the children in non-uniform. We even have a few superheroes on site! Thank you to everyone for supporting the ESJ Friends' fundraising efforts.
A huge thank you for the generous donations to our Children in Need coin trail. Well done to everyone on the School Council for organising it!
