Tawny Owls - Yr 5

Check out our Math's challenge champions and super spellers! These children worked as a brilliant team to solve a selection puzzles and problems. They also had to work against the clock! It looks like Mrs Mole is even finding the Math's a bit tricky!



There will be a meeting regarding the Ironbridge residential trip on Monday 23rd April for all parents and carers. It will begin at 3.30pm and will be held in Miss Beaumont's classroom.


Look forward to seeing you there and Happy Easter!

Children in Need:


We had great fun at school on Friday 17th November, raising money for Children in need.

Some of the activities included decorating biscuits, a cake sale, filling a large Pudsey face with spare change and a whole school assembly which we got to have a bit of a boogey in!


Check out the Pudsey photo below:

Peer mentors:


This week we had a visit from Ali Brown. She is the Community Engagement Officer for The Newark Family of Schools.

Ali came to talk to us about being Peer Mentors and what the role involves. A lot of us were extremely interested in the role and have taken home an application pack ready to be interviewed for the positions.

We are excited about how we will be able to help and support John Hunt Primary School and make it an even better place than it already is!

Don't forget to return your application forms to school as soon as possible, the latest date for you to return them is 24th November ready for the interviews which will take place on 29th November.

Good luck everyone!
