Westminster cross country competition

On Thursday, children from Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 took part in the Westminster cross country competition in Regent’s Park. There were over 20 schools taking part and overall, St Mary’s came 11th! There were top 20 finishes for some pupils and excellent sporting conduct throughout. Well done!

Year 5 and 6 Tag Rugby

Yesterday, some children in Year 5 and Year 6 took part in the Westminster Tag Rugby tournament in Regent’s Park. They had skills training and then played 3 matches against other Westminster schools. They didn’t emerge victorious this time but they scored some points and made lots of tags! It was a great day and we are very proud of the children’s determination, sporting attitudes and enthusiasm.

KS2 Cross country

Today , our KS2 children were joined at Paddington Rec by the Year 4 and 6 children from All Souls School for our annual KS2 school cross country competition. The children had a great day and demonstrated how all their efforts in the daily mile are paying off.

We saw a lot of determination and enthusiasm, alongside smiles and encouragement from all the children.

Some of the winners will go on to represent the school at the Westminster inter-school competition in October.

Thank you to All Souls, as well as all the parents who came along to help out and to support their children.

PGL – Day Three

Today, the children are going to try the Giant Swing (they were SO excited about this yesterday!), the low ropes course, abseiling and Survivor.

They will be leaving PGL after their afternoon activities and should be back at school at around 7pm depending on traffic.

Sports Day KS1 and 2

On Monday, we held our Sports Day at Paddington Recreation Ground. It was a swelteringly hot day, but despite that we managed to have a great time doing different activities. There was an egg and spoon race, long jump, sprinting and football dribbling amongst other things. We finished with an adults vs Year 6 relay race, which the children easily won! Well done, everyone, and thank you to Mr Pendlebury for organising it.

Today, we awarded children with certificates for their participation, and medals for the children who made the greatest effort and showed the best sportsmanship. We also announced that BLUE team had won this year. Congratulations!

Early Years Sports Day

Early Years had their Sports Day this morning. They did 5 different activities: relay, egg and spoon race, bike race, circle games with a football and a water relay. The children did brilliantly and had a fun time, too! They then delighted us with their pirate song and dance moves. Well done F1 and F2!

Year 2 Multi-skills Trip

Yesterday, Year 2 went to Regent’s Park for a multi-skills day, where they tried out different sports. It was a lovely day for it!

Year 5 Bastketball Tournament

On Wednesday, children from Year 5 went to the Little Venice Sports Centre for a Westminster-wide basketball competition. Their sportmanship was commented on as being outstanding, and they competed very well against more experienced and taller teams. Well done, Year 5!
