On Thursday 20th June, we celebrated the launch of our School Street. It was a brilliant occasion, with games from Sustrans, expert advice about cycling, Bikers’ Breakfast, Dr Bike and a few special guests! Thank you to everyone who came to help us celebrate and a special thanks goes to Mrs Leith who put it all together.
The Friends of St Mary’s have organised an online auction to raise money for the school. More items will be added in the coming weeks – the auction ends on 15th July so please make sure you check back. Please have a look!
This Thursday is Clean Air Day and we will be celebrating with a range of exciting activities! See the poster below for more details:
We would like to wish all our families who are celebrating the end of Ramadan a very joyous Eid al-Fitr!
Years 2, 4 and 6 are involved in the Young Readers Programme this term. The programme aims to motivate children to read for enjoyment through a series of literacy events that celebrate the fun of reading. At each event, the children independently select a new book of their choice to keep. The first event was just before Easter and the theme was ‘tuck in and read’, celebrating bedtime stories.
There will be one more event in school later this term (‘Booknic’), and the final event will be held at the British Land offices.
On Tuesday 19th March, the choir had a fantastic experience of singing alongside 4000 students from the south-east of the UK. They spent a few months preparing the songs and actions and it was incredible hearing all the voices singing as one.
The event told the story of Moses and the exodus out of Egypt through music by the All Souls Orchestra as well as dance and acting. All the students thoroughly enjoyed it and the adults even got a tad teary during Amazing Grace!
We had a great time last week raising money for Comic Relief! The cake sale was a great success – thank you to everyone who donated or bought cakes. We have some very talented bakers in school! The children loved taking part in the danceathon – it was great fun! We raised over £300, so thank you all very much for your generosity.
