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.
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.

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!
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:
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.
This is Friday’s newsletter, including information about Black History Month dates and school uniform: October 7th
We are delighted that our Sport Relief Fundraiser in April raised £300 towards helping children around the world have a better life. Thank you to everyone who supported our run around St Mary’s Church and playground bunny hop!
