Today, Year 3 visited Paddington Recreation Ground for an Olympic Legacy day. They met Olympic athletes, tried a variety of Olympic sports and competed in races.
Yesterday, pupils from Year 5 and Year 6 took part in a Tag Rugby competition against other Westminster schools. They played extremely well, winning their first 3 matches and reaching the semi-finals. Their attitude, behaviour and teamwork were excellent.
Here is one child’s report of the day: Tag Rugby
Here is this week’s newsletter: september-23rd
Please note the information about next week’s Cross-Country event at school.
Year 6 are already off on their first trip of the year: PGL Activity Centre.
It was great to hear the instructors say that this is the most encouraging and supportive group they have worked with! Well done, Year 6.
On Friday, Years 1 to 6 went to Paddington Recreation Ground for our annual Sports Day. Despite the rain, we managed to have a really fun time, trying out all the different activities: egg and spoon, long jump, different ball skills, skipping, sprinting and long jump.
KS2 also ran relay races, including the Y6 vs parents and teachers race!
Thanks to our School Sports Grant, children are taking part in different Sports activities this term that they may not otherwise have the opportunity to do. Today, Year 3 pupils went Rock Climbing at Seymour Leisure Centre.
At St Mary’s, we have been thinking about many of the different ways of keeping healthy and staying active.
This week, we held ‘Shoesday Tuesday’ at the request of the school council to encourage both pupils and adults to walk to school.
Year 5 and 6 pupils have been learning how to cycle safely over the last couple of weeks, and have also been finding out how to mend their bikes when they go wrong in a ‘FIX IT’ workshop.
