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 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!
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!

On Tuesday 6th March, 10 children from Year 3 and 4 took part in the Westminster football competition at Paddington Rec. We won 2 games and lost 2 games. One of the children scored 4 goals, and three other children scored 1 each. Everyone played their best and represented the school extremely well!

On Tuesday 6th February, 11 girls from year 5 and 6 went to Paddington Rec to compete in the girls’ football tournament. Everyone played superbly (we did not lose a game!). We won 2 games and drew 3, with Sara scoring 2 goals and Jenin 1 goal. Well done to the whole team for a great day out!
Yesterday, our Year 5/6 boys’ football team took part in a Westminster-wide competition. Here is a match report by one of the team:
On the 29th of January 2018, some boys from years 5-6 went to a football tournament.
Fist we had a warm up passing the ball to each other and having a run around. The first match was a draw (0-0), the second match was a defeat (1-0), and the third match was another defeat (2-0). Then we were knocked out so we couldn’t go through to the semi-finals.
After that we went to another pitch to play some friendlies. For our first friendly we versed Saint Vincent’s Primary School, and lost 1-0, but we finally won our last friendly 2-1!
Finally we got our stuff and made our way back to school. We enjoyed the day and hope to win better and learn from our mistakes that we made.
On Tuesday 23rd January, 24 Year 3 and 4 children participated in the Sportshall Athletics competition. They represented St Mary’s very well and showed all our school values – we came back with an award for Honesty! A highlight was Alyah and Olivia winning the Girls Hurdles relay.
