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.
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.
Last week, our girls’ football team played a friendly game of football against the girls from Hampden Gurney school. This was arranged by QPR, who work with us every week in school.
Well done to Hampden Gurney, who beat our girls 3 – 0, and well done to all the girls for taking part so sportingly!
Today is our Year 5 children’s last day at Sayers Croft. They are enjoying team challenges this morning:
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.
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:
