Reception: Nativity play
Reception parents were delighted to see their children performing in their very first Nativity Play - Whoops a Daisy Angel. The children have been working so hard to learn their lines and lots of new songs. What a wonderful end to their first term at school. Their teachers and parents were so proud to see how they have all grown in confidence this term!

Arts Council: St Anselm’s Art Exhibition
The Arts Council were lucky enough to be invited to an Arts Exhibition at St Anselm’s school in Harrow this week. It was a lovely opportunity for our children to go and view another school’s art work. The Arts Council were wonderful ambassadors for our school and it was a joy to see them reflecting and discussing the art work with the children from St Anselm’s. It was a pleasure for Mrs McHugh and Mr Baxter to take them to such a lovely display of creativity; we all came away with lots of inspiration.
Remembrance Day 2021
Whole School Art Installation
Every child in St John Fisher has contributed to our Art installation by producing a ‘Peg Doll Soldier’ to commemorate Remembrance Day this year. Children have taken part in a number of activities across the school which focus on the importance of remembering the sacrifices of those who served for our country during the wars. Throughout these activities we constantly remembered, thought and reflected on events from the past.

Well done to the children who took part in the judging: Maja, Daniel, Theo, Alayna and James.
