Sainsbury’s have sponsored a holiday club which has been taking place at school throughout the summer break. Representatives from UKActive, Sainsbury’s and Premier Sport joined Sharon Hodgson; MP for Washington and Sunderland to see the children getting involved in a range of fun activities.
The holiday club offers children a range of activities tailored by age group, including sports, games and performing art classes, and also provided children with a nutritious lunch and healthy snacks.
Year 2 had lots of fun at sports day on Tuesday. We spent the day completing traditional races, obstacle courses, tag rugby, hula hooping, ball games, skipping and boxing. We had so much fun and even managed to miss the rain! Well done year 2!
Year 2 had a lovely afternoon at Marine Park Orienteering. We followed clues and worked in teams to gather materials to create a hedgehog home. We also had to keep an eye out for any sea creatures and draw them. It was lots of fun and we enjoyed working as a team.
Year 1 had a fantastic day at Marine Park. We had fun sketching the bandstand, riding on the train, playing in the park and enjoying a picnic. Everybody was delighted to have an ice-cream from Minchellas to cool us down!
Today the children in Year 3 explored the Winter Gardens. They took part in a workshop learning about the different animals in the rainforest and loved exploring the museum. The children were able to discuss lots of interesting facts and the people at the museum were very impressed. Well done Year 3!
Year 6 took part in a number of team building activities and had go at orienteering in South Marine Park.
The sun was shining as we joined the Dragon Parade on its route through Jarrow. We all had a wonderful day. Well done to year 3 for making the dragon and everyone from St.Mary’s who turned up to help or to support us on the route.
In this special month of May, the children gathered to celebrate the crowning of Mary. The children reflected on Mary’s role in Jesus’ life and how important she was. We enjoyed singing hymns to celebrate and shared prayers to reflect on this special time of year. A lovely liturgy Year 3.
