Here are a few activities for over the first week of the Easter Holidays. If you wish to take part, remember to submit any Easter egg competition photos by the end of the week so they can be added to next week’s blog!
We had a great day at our Key Stage 2 Sports Day on Wednesday. The children took part in lots of races and even the parents and teachers took part too! Luckily the sun was shining and everyone had a lot of fun.
A superb exhibition of art work based on the topics the children have studied this year. Thank you to all who helped put the exhibition together and to the families and friends who supported us today?
Children enjoyed their time with Antony today. Hopefully he has inspired some budding writers.
Year 3 and Year 4 had a great time at Monkton Stadium today. They took part in several athletic activities from the long jump to 50m sprint, the 400m run and a javelin throw. Although it was a little cold and wet, we all had a great day. We are so proud of our children as they cheered on others from both our own school and other schools in the area. They really showed our true St James spirit.

A number of children from KS2 took part in the recent Boccia competition held at St. Joseph’s, with all of them having lots of fun in the process.
For many of the children, this was their first experience of playing Boccia, but you wouldn’t have known that given how well they all played on the day.
Boccia is a type of bowls game, a tactical challenge which involves three members in each team. On the day, St. James had two teams involved, and they represented their school brilliantly.
Well done to all those involved.
