'First Year at St John's' video

Please follow this link to watch a short video which was made for our September 2020 Reception entrants as they transitioned into school. Although the class names and individual teachers will not remain the same from year to year, the film still gives a really good sense of what life is like in Reception at St John's. We are immensely grateful to Ginger Cat Studios for making this brilliant video Facebook @gingercatstudios.
