The children ended their trip with abseiling and aeroball:
Yesterday, F1 used the apples from their garden to make an apple pie. They first had to go to the shops to buy ingredients for the pastry. Here they are on their shopping trip, and baking the pie together:
It was a very tasty pie!

This morning, the children are trying out the giant swing and Jacob’s ladder; this afternoon it’s the mud course, archery and zip wire.
Year 6 have gone off to PGL on the very first day of the year! They began their final year by boarding a coach to Hindhead, then getting straight onto the trapeze showing their bravery right from the start. Keep checking here as we will post updates when new photos come through. We are also tweeting as @SMBSschool
Today, F1 and F2 visited Odds Farm in Surrey. They had the opportunity both to see farm animals and to handle some. They had a wonderful day.
This afternoon, we had a concert to celebrate some of the wonderful Dance and Music that our children have learnt this year. We had four performance pieces from the choir, solos from several different children on the piano, a reprive of Year 6’s musical and two dance numbers. Also, two girls sang an original composition, unaccompanied.
Everyone did brilliantly and we are very proud of you all.
We then had fabulous refreshments out in the playground, courtesy of the Friends of St Mary’s.
Yesterday, Year 6 performed the musical ‘Olivia’ to pupils, staff, parents and governors. It was a highly entertaining tale of life in Victorian Britain, based losely on Dickens’ Oliver Twist. Eliza Doolittle, Sherlock Holmes, George Bernard Shaw and Ebenezer Scrooge all made an appearance! The children did a great job, with both comedy and some very touching solos.
They were then presented with the school cups and our new school leavers’ medals.
Today the children in Year 1 celebrated the life of our Queen, which marked the end of their History topic on Queen Elizabeth II. The children made crowns, Union Jack flags and painted portraits of the Queen. They also made cucumber sandwiches which they ate with a small cake at a garden tea party.
