Grand Opening of our Creative Learning Hub

School Council are excited to announce the plans for the official opening and celebration of our new music and food tech space.

The Plan:


On Friday 23rd March at 8.50 am children will be asked to bring in a homemade bake – with a healthy twist. This can be taken to the Creative Learning Hub – each class will have its own space to place bakes on.

9.15 – 10.15 judging of the baking entries will commence. Our judging team will include members of staff and governors! They will judge the bakes.

Staff and parents are also invited to bring a bake!

10.15 – 11.15 judging of the staff and parents bakes will commence. The judging team will be led by school council and Miss New. From 11.15 – 2.00 Classes will be able to come into the creative learning hub and taste some of the bakes. Parents will not be staying for the judging in the morning but are most welcome for the opening in the afternoon.

Opening and presentation

3.00 – 3.30 – All parents and friends are invited to our official opening and presentation to the winning bakers. Children will be seated inside. Prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd for each year group.

Parents will be invited to gather in the Key stage 2 playground – weather permitting – we will open the bi folding doors and cut the ribbon from there.

Online Safety Week 5th – 8th February 2018

Thank you to our Digital Leaders who launched important Online Safety Week messages in assembly on Monday.

We have all been learning about how we can make the internet a happier place and are sharing our ideas on our special online safety question wall.

Multi-Faith Week 19th – 23rd February 2018

What a fantastic week we have had, where the children have had the opportunity to explore, discuss and visit different places of worship.

Throughout the week different classes went and visited a place of worship, which included a Mosque, Church and a Buddhist Temple. We have also had different members of staff sharing where they worship and discussing their beliefs with the children.

The week ended with our Religious Food Festival. Each class did some cooking and work around a religion. This culminated in our Food Festival at the end of the day, where the children were able to share with their parents all the food and work they had created.

“It was great, we ate lots of yummy food like hot cross buns and Jewish honey cake.” Jimmy (Year 6)

I had a fun day because we did lots of activities like making mandalas.” Renae (Year 6)

Easter Celebration 26th March 2018 9.30am – 10.00am

This year we will be having our Easter celebration in St Matthews Church, near Brixton. This will be an amazing opportunity for us at St Jude’s to celebrate Jesus’ death and resurrection, in our local church.

The service will be run by our Faith Group, along with Reverend Stephen.

Unfortunately, due to limited space in the church, we will not have room for everyone. As a result, only those parents who are helping to walk the children over to the church, will be able to stay for the service.

Please do let your class teacher know if you are able to help.




What is Worship? – Family Learning Project

This term’s family learning project is planned to tie in with our Multi-Faith Week (19th February – 23rd February) and will allow children to explore the question, ‘What is Worship?’

Children are invited to be creative and to interpret this theme as they wish. We have given a few examples but we are looking for original ideas too!

To celebrate the children’s efforts and achievements, class teachers will choose a project that really stands out. There will be a special prize for first, second and third place.

All projects should be returned by Friday 9th March 2018.

Science Week 12th – 16th March 2018

Next week is Science Week and St Jude’s will be celebrating the theme of Exploration and Discovery with many great activities throughout the week.

We will have a launch assembly on Monday, complete investigations on Wednesday and even have the chance to make some posters about different explorers and discoveries.

On Friday we will announce the class winners of the posters and some of our Class 4 students will have the opportunity to go to the Richard Atkins Science Fair!

St Jude’s was very proud to host the Windmill Cluster Forensic Workshop on Tuesday 6th March.

Children from 9 different schools worked together to solve a crime using forensic techniques and team work.  It was an amazing day.
