Year 3 trip to Kew Gardens

Today, Year 3 visited Kew Gardens for a science workshop about plants. They learned all about what each part of a plant does, and found a variety of bees in the gardens. Everyone was surprised to learn that even creatures like bats, lizards and frogs can be pollinators!

This is part of their summer term RE topic, ‘What does it mean to be a Buddhist?’

Music Masters Concert Evening

Last week, we were delighted to host our first evening concert for friends and families of St Mary’s, organised by London Music Masters. We were extremely lucky to have Alexandra Soumm and Paloma Kouider visit us and play a fabulous repertoire of pieces, from Mozart to Ravel. It was a magical experience and wonderful that so many families joined us, including those with really young children. Part of the Music Masters programme is making classical music accessible to all, and this was a great way to do this.

Attendance Award Winners!

We are delighted that 65 of our children met or exceeded their attendance targets last term, or kept 100% attendance. Well done to all those children. Particular congratulations go to F2, Y3 and Y6 where a high proportion of the class achieved this. The children who exceeded their target will be able to choose a special prize from Miss Clarke-Harding this afternoon.

Every child from F2 to Y6 will receive a new target for the summer term on Thursday. Let’s see who else can beat their goal!
