St Mary’s School Film

We are delighted to share this short film we have made about our school, which we believe reflects the character and ethos of St Mary’s. If you would like to know more about our school, please contact us to arrange a visit. We would love to welcome you here.

St Mary’s School does not take responsibility for any content on vimeo.com except what we have posted as ‘St Mary’s Bryanston Square Sch’.

Year 5 Trip to Thames Barrier

Yesterday, Year 5 visited the Thames Barrier. This is an incredible mechanism, which protects London from any flooding, which it has done successfully ever since its inception. The children had a great time and learnt lots of interesting information to support their Geography curriculum learning.

Year 4 Royal Academy of Music Project

Year 4 are working with the Royal Academy of Music on a composition project. In their first session, they looked at clips from ‘Planet Earth 2’ and created backing music to capture their mood. Here, they are building tension for the scene where snakes chase an iguana:

And this is the music they composed to describe the walk of the penguins:

Y5 Assembly – The Water Cycle

Year 5 shared what they had learnt about the Water Cycle in assembly today, through singing and through reading their Topic Writing.

They also led us in the hymn, In the Bleak Midwinter (due to the snow this morning!), and prayers about our Christian Value of Respect, and for people in Syria who are suffering.

 

F1 Post Office Visits

F1 are learning about ‘People Who Help Us’. This week they have been learning about how the Post Office helps us to send and receive letters. They wrote letters (including one to Miss Norman) to people who help them and visited the Post Office on Baker Street to send their letters. Afterwards, they wrote to the person who helped them in the Post Office, Chuka.

Weekly Newsletter 13.1.17

Here is today’s newsletter: January 13th 2017

Please can we remind parents of the procedures for reporting a concern: SMBS Concerns Procedure 2016-17

It is crucial for the harmonious running of our school that all parents and carers follow these at all times. They are built on our school values, and British Values, of respect and love for one another.

Thank you
