Clean Air Quality Street

Yesterday, Westminster Council closed Enford Street for us to hold a ‘play street’ event, highlighting the importance of clean air, road safety and fitness. We had cycling activities (including a very popular smoothie bike), fitness games with My Time Active, craft with parent volunteers and staff from St Mary’s Church, as well as the chance to draw on the road with chalk and enjoy talking to one another! We are very greatful to Carla Lowe from Westminster Council and to the Marylebone LEN for organising this along with Mrs Leith and our school staff.

Y5 Girls’ Football Tournament

This week a group of Year 5 girls took part in a Westminster-wide football tournament at Paddington Recreation Ground. They played valiantly and managed to score a few goals.

Miss Bell says:

‘One of the teachers from Queen’s ollege commented on their sportsmanship which was excellent and they also initiated a friendly match against Hampden Gurney at the end of the competition as neither got into the semi-finals. They approached the other school’s adult and organised it themselves so it was great to see their enthusiasm.’

Well done girls, we are very proud of you.

Year 5 Tour of Lord’s

On Friday, Year 5 pupils conducted a tour of Lord’s Cricket Ground for groups of children and adults. Pupils from our Year 3 class, and from Wetherby Prep School, were taken around, as well as our Chair of Governors and some parents and teachers.

The Lord’s staff were extremely impressed with the children and said that they had done an excellent job!

Y2 Football Tournament

Yesterday, Year 2 pupils took part in a football tournament with other local schools, run by QPR Football Club, at Westway Sports Centre. They had a fantastic day, playing games against other teams and developing their skills.

Year 5’s tour guide lesson at Lord’s

Yesterday, Year 5 visited Lord’s Cricket Ground to learn how to be tour guides. They will be conducting a full tour of the ground, and the historical artefacts inside the Pavillion, later this term for staff, Governors and parents from St Mary’s. This will help develop their leadership skills and their ability to recall and present key information.

Here they are taking notes, ready for their tour:

BHM: Visit from QPR football stars

Yesterday, we were delighted to welcome into school football stars Nedum Onuoha and Steven Caulker from Queen’s Park Rangers Football Club. They both spoke about how they had become professional footballers and the importance of their academic schooling in their upbringing. The children asked a range of questions about their lives and careers.

We were also pleased to welcome Year 6 children from Christchurch Bentinck School to join us for this Black History Month Assembly.
