The Christmas Fair at St. Stephen's Junior was off to a flying start Friday afternoon, with all stalls set up rearing to go by 2pm. Shortly after opening, the queue at Santa's Grotto rapidly grew multiple pairs of arms and legs, while our enthusiastic choir entertained visitors with some heartfelt Christmas carols.
Our anti-bullying poster competition has concluded and our winners chosen. The 4 winners received an art prize and runners up also received stationery items. Their posters will be displayed in their year groups this year.
|Mr. Jarvis (Head of Year 6)|
"Year 6 began their World War 2 topic with a World War 2 day. During this engaging day, the children took part in different workshops such as looking at authentic artefacts, taking part in an army drill and dancing to the Lambeth Walk! They were given the chance to dress up and also heard a real air raid siren being played as part of learning about sheltering during the Blitz".
Twitter allows short messages, photographs and videos to be shared. Many schools now use Twitter to share regular updates with parents throughout the school day, to keep parents informed about life at their child’s school.
We have been using Twitter as a school now for the past six years (@SSJSCanterbury) and as well as keeping parents up to date with a normal school day, we have been able to keep parents updated whilst on school trips, such as the skiing trip, bushcraft and PGL, as well as during special events such as music concerts and assemblies. We look forward to seeing more of our parents take advantage of this innovative way of sharing their child's journey through school! There is a link to our Twitter feed on the school website.
