St Mary’s Book Day 2017

Yesterday, children and staff throughout the school dressed up as Book characters to celebrate World Book Day. This was the climax to a fantastic Book Week, which included ‘Drop Everything and Read’ moments, Mystery Readers, trips to Daunt’s bookshop and visits to our brand new school library!

Here are some of the children’s costumes:

International Day 2017

We had a fantastic International Day on Friday, with children, staff and parents dressing up in costumes from countries around the world.

This year, our focus was on countries in Africa, and each class shared work about their chosen country. It was also an excellent opportunity for the children to show the wonderful respect they have for each other’s cultures and beliefs.

A big thank you to the parents who brought in food and set up stalls, teaching us about life in your home countries.

Sing Up Gold Award

We are delighted to have been awarded the ‘Sing Up’ Gold Award for having singing embedded throughout the school.

Here are some of the endorser’s comments:

‘Overall I am very impressed with the quality of singing, particularly from the choir. It is clear that pupils are encouraged to sing well and with conviction, listening to their tuning, and as a result lots of the singing I heard was very beautiful.

It is good to hear that children are given lots of opportunities to lead singing, particularly in the upper years, and it’s good that this will be developed by supporting them to lead part singing.

It is nice to see such emphasis put on staff training. The training that took place was obviously a valuable experience for the staff that took part and it sounds like it has had an impact on their use of singing in the classroom.

Congratulations again St Mary’s Bryanston Square, you are a golden singing school and I look forward to hearing about your next singing adventures!’
