Summer Term Attendance Assembly

Check out our Year 6 Attendance winners for Summer Term! 

Leavers' Assembly

What a beautiful assembly year 6 did for their parents, carers, staff and children at St.John's. They reflected on their time at St.John's and all the wonderful memories they have made. They also sang beautifully! 

Leavers' Mass

We had a lovely morning at our Year 6 Leavers' mass. Fr.Erasmus blessed these rosary bead bracelets and each pupil got one to take away. 

Year 6 Leavers' Party

Year 6 had a wonderful time in the sunshine at their Leavers' party! What a fabulous year group that will be greatly missed! 

Sports Day 2022

Year 6 thoroughly enjoyed their sports day in the sunshine! They competed in many games and races including the egg and spoon race, sack race, sprint race and skipping race. 

Children's University

Many of our Year 6 children attended their Children's University Graduation Ceremony at Liverpool University. It was a fantastic day to celebrate the wonderful achievements of the children and to give them the recognition they deserve for the numerous hours they had spent attending after school clubs! 

One of our year 6 children had achieved the most hours across the entire city - wow! What an achievement! 

Queen's Platinum Jubilee - Year 6 Celebrations

To celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee, we had a picnic outside! Each class also got their very own Platinum Jubilee cake - this was super tasty! 

Year 6 Collective Worship

Year 6 carefully planned this whole class collective worship which focused on the power of the Holy Spirit. We shared some of our beautiful paintings and shared how we are each a witness to the power of the Holy Spirit.

GB Athlete Visit: Daniel Purvis

We loved our workshop and the whole school assembly delivered by GB Athlete Daniel Purvis. How lucky we are to have had such a special visitor to school! 

Past Productions: WWII Workshop

Year 6 had a wonderful WWII workshop with Past Productions. The day consisted of drama, role play, code breaking and exploring a range of artefacts from WWII. It was super fascinating and we learnt a lot! 


Year 6 Transition Day - Church

We were very fortunate to have this special day, organised by our school parish. It was a day focusing on the new journey we will make to high school. We reflected on our time at St.John’s and the wonderful memories we have made here. Then, we looked at how we could prepare and be ready for the next exciting chapter – moving to high school. We even had some former St.John’s pupils join us for the day!

Art: 3D Sculptures

In Art, we have been creating a 3D sculpture based on the ‘Shoes on the Danube Bank’ monument in Budapest, Hungary. We had lots of practice using clay and other materials to enhance our skills before beginning the sculpture.

Year 6 - Spring Attendance Winners 

Well done to our Year 6 children who achieved a certificate and prize for Excellent Attendance!

First Aid Workshops

All of our Year 6 children achieved basic first aid training. They were fantastic first-aiders and understood the importance of following DRSABC in emergency situations. 




Liverpool Playhouse Theatre - Fantastically Great Women Who Changed the World

Year 6 attended Liverpool Playhouse Theatre on Thursday 31st April 2022. Here, we watched the incredible show of Fantastically Great Women Who Changed the World based on Kate Pankhurst's book. What a fantastic show it was! We would highly recommend everyone to see it. 

Making Periscopes - Science

Using cereal boxes and mirrors, we created and made our own periscopes as part of our Light topic in Science. 

Red Nose Day 2022 

We came to school dressed in red and wearing other red accessories for Red Nose Day. We collected donations and raised awareness for Comic Relief. 

British Science Week - March 2022

We took part in a whole school assembly with our Mad Scientists firstly and then each class had their own Mad Science workshop linked to their topics. Year 6 took part in a Light Workshop. We got to wear special glasses, looked at white light and even had a mini firework display! 



Liverpool Carabao Cup Final Winners 2022

Some of our year 6 pupils were selected to go and see the Carabao Cup at Anfield. How lucky they were to see this in person and have their picture taken with it!

Odd Arts Drama Workshop

Year 6 took part in a drama workshop led and delivered by Odd Arts. This workshop was on Radicalisation and the children had a real insight into this through watching the actors and taking part in the acting themselves. They also got really involved in the discussions led by the actors. 

Science - Testing Circuits

 Following their predictions, year 6 carried out some investigations to prove and disprove the statements below: 

Science - Light 

We worked in groups to create a human model to show how light enables us to see things. We used yellow wool as the ray of light and had to remember that light travels in straight lines! 

Adventure Hunters Writing Competition 

As part of the Young Writer's Competition, Year 6 completed a Saga (100-word story) and lots of our work got published! How fantastic to have such talented writers in our year group! 

Celebrating other Religions 

During our Judaism week, we learnt about the different foods eaten during the Jewish Festival Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year). Apples dipped in honey represented a sweet new year and we all enjoyed sampling and tasting this!


Making Cupcakes 

Year 6 enjoyed making Christmas cupcakes. We came up with a design brief, researched other Christmas cupcakes, practised the skills needed, applied these skills to make our delicious cupcakes and then evaluated them. 




  Santa Dash 

    To raise money for CAFOD, we took part in a Santa Dash - 10 laps of our school playground! 




     As part of our balanced arguments genre in writing, we have been holding some class debates.
