Our after school clubs are run voluntarily by St John’s staff, or occasionally by external companies. All clubs are free to attend and a letter goes out every term, for signing up to them. Please check these letters, as clubs are run for different year groups each term, to give everybody a chance to take part.
This club is run by Mrs McLoughlin. The children will take part in activities such as card making and other paper-based activities, using a range of media.
Film Club is run by Mrs Venn and Mr Benney. The children gather to watch a whole range of films, from modern day masterpieces to obscure subtitled films; from animation to cartoons to live action. After we have watched a film, we write a review which goes on the Film Club website. This site is home to thousands of review written by children. We can also use the site to request new films we would like to see. You can visit the free Film Club website, add your own reviews and see what others thought of your favourite films by visiting http://www.filmclub.org/
