A huge thank you to everyone for their donations today! Today we brightened up St Mary’s with bright coloured socks to support Cafod. All our children and staff, wore bright coloured socks and donated food to our Harvest campaign. All our donations will go to our local charity; The Key Project.
Today we gathered to welcome the new reception children, new staff at our Mass. Our year 6 children led the Mass and our choir sang beautifully. It was a lovely mass led by Fr Saji and Deacon Kevin. Our reception children attended Mass for the first time and our year 6 children received their House Captain and Vice-Captain badges.
Today St Mary’s welcomed the new reception class into our family. Thank you to all of the Year 6 pupils who looked after and supported their ‘buddies’ on their special occasion. The children from reception have formed such positive relationships with their ‘buddies’ and it is lovely to see. We would like to say a huge thank you to the families of the reception pupils for all of their support today. We hope you enjoyed finding out about what the boys and girls enjoy doing and what they would like to be when they grow up.
This week some of the children made puppets and acted out what Jesus would say to the children and disciples when he was going to bless them. Jesus was not happy when the disciples told the children they should not be Baptised.
Today we had some professional coaching to learn some amazing skipping techniques. We will be practising really hard so that we can do well in the competition, which is in the spring term. We had lots of fun but it was really hard work. Well done Y4!
Today the children further explored St. Paul’s letter. They worked in pairs to role play qualities that we need to show to live in the way that Jesus and God want us to. The children thought carefully about their situations and they enjoyed role playing for the rest of the class.
Yet another big well done to all the children and staff at St Mary’s. We have achieved Gold status for the School Games for the second year running. Let’s go for the hat-trick!
Today the children in Year 3 had great fun becoming rock stars. The children set up their accounts and battled with Year 4 to practise their times tables. We all had great fun rocking out and can’t wait to play more!
Today in French Year 4 have been singing a French song called ‘Je me leve’.
We decided to sing it as ‘rock stars’. We had lots of fun!
Today we launched Times Table Rockstars in St Mary’s. Children will be setting up their own avatar and choosing their ‘Rock’ name. They will then battle their way through their times tables against friends and even children from around the world. This month the goal is to be, ‘Top Earner’, so children get rocking!
