Year 4 ‘Meet the Author’ Day at QPR football club

Yesterday, Year 4 had a brilliant time visiting QPR football club for a ‘meet the author’ day. This was part of the Premier League’s Primary Stars programme. They met Matt Oldfield, who has written a book about Lionel Messi, and Will Mabbitt who has written a pirate adventure story called ‘The Unlikely Adventures of Mabel Jones’. They also had a tour of the stadium.

Sayers Croft Day 2

The children slept very well and are wide awake and ready for their activities this morning. They will be caving, having a go at a low ropes course, exploring the WW2 trail and finding their way around the woods using compasses. A jam-packed day, full of adventure!

The children also celebrated a special birthday.

Year 5 at Sayers Croft

This year, for the first time, our Year 5s have gone to Sayers Croft Activity Centre in Ewhurst, Surrey. They are undertaking outdoor adventurous activities (part of the PE curriculum) and mapwork activities (part of the Geography curriulum), as well as team building and learning to stay away from home! Today, they tackled the blindfold trail, maze and orienteering challenge:

School Cross Country Event at Paddington Rec

On Monday 2nd October, KS1 and KS2 students made their way to Paddington Rec for our school Cross Country.

Children ran the following distances:

Year 1 and 2: 600m

Year 3 and 4: 1km

Year 5 and 6: 1.6km (1 mile)

A particularly exciting race was the Year 6 girls, which was an extremely tight finish for 3rd place! Congratulations to the top 6 finishers from each year group, who will represent St Mary’s at the inter-school competition at Regent’s Park. Well done to everyone for participating and showing great sportsmanship!

Tag Rugby Competition

Yesterday, pupils from Year 5 and 6 competed in the Westminster Tag Rugby Competition.

Here are their match reports:

On 27th September, children took part in a tag rugby competition. First we changed into our kits and then we made our way to Regents Park where the competition was held. We all had an amazing time, but unfortunately we didn’t score any goals on our first game and managed to make it up by scoring two scores on our second game and we had a draw on our third. The games started after lunch and we had games and drills before lunch. In the drills we played games such as handball and we competed against St Matthew’s. We practised kicking, scoring, defending and attacking. Unfortunately we didn’t make it to the semi-finals but played really well in the matches. We are all very proud of ourselves and can’t wait to do something like this again. Thank you Miss Bell and Miss Ali.

First, we left assembly to get changed into our kit. We made our way to Regents Park shortly after. There were 12 people who came (including me and Sara); when we arrived we were surprised to see many local schools. We started with a warm up which consisted of drills and skills. Luckily, we were the fastest school in the running warm up. We competed against St Matthew’s during the warm-ups. When we got to the real games, it was much more competitive. The first game we played we scored 1-0. The second and third game we drew. Sadly, we didn’t get through to the semi-finals but we scored 5 tries in total. It was amazing and we were so glad we could go. A big thank you to Mr Pendlebury and Miss Bell. Also Miss Ali and the parents that supported us.
