Today, children from KS2 went to Regents’ Park to compete against other Westminster schools in Cross Country running. Most of the children are part of the school Running Club. In the Y3/4 race, two of our girls placed in the top 10; in the Y5/6 race, one of our boys game 6th! Overall, St Mary’s came 18th out of all the Westminster schools. Well done – we are very proud of you.

This term, we have started a new club before school: fencing. This is a traditional sport, where children learn control and technique. Don’t worry the foils (swords) are plastic!!
Our second group of ‘beyond green’ winners came for tea today. We talked about developing the playground, the building works next to our school and cars (mostly)!
In KS2, we have replaced Golden Time with Golden Clubs. This gives children the opportunity to learn a new skill, or develop a talent. This term, our clubs are:
- Debating Club
- Art Club
- Touch Typing Club
- Film Club
- Running Club
Here are some examples of the children enjoying their new clubs:
