Last week, Year 3 visited Kidzania to explore a variety of different careers.
On Friday, our Year 6 class put on the fantastic show ‘Shakespeare Rocks’, telling the story of the life of William Shakespeare and some of the backgroud to his plays. We laughed, we cried, and then we laughed a lot more! They performed it extremely well and we were all very proud of them. Mr Riordan continued the afternoon by giving a speech, saying how important it was that whatever happens in life, they care for one another. Jon Ward (Chair of Governors) then presented every child with a book, a special certificate made for each individual pupil, and awarded the school cups to children as voted for by their classmates.
Well done, Year 6. We will all miss you very much.
Here is our weekly newsletter (which is already out of date!!): July 15th
Yesterday, St Mary’s was transformed into an Art Gallery! Every class worked on an Art project, linked to the theme of Water, during ‘Arts Week’ and then displayed their work for parents and visitors to see. There were also filmed Musical performances, which were played during the exhibition, and the choir sang a selection of songs from different films.
Thank you to everyone who came along and supported the children, and to the staff for all their hard work in putting the show together.
At the end of June, Year 6 worked on an enterprise project called ‘The Fiver Challenge‘. They each received £5 from Virgin Money, which they invested into group businesses (a bit like the Apprentice!). They had to buy and make their products, work out their costs and profit, and sell their items to the school community. They even made adverts, which they shared in assembly. Some groups raised money for a charty; others put their proceeds towards a special treat for the class.
We were all extremely impressed with their teamwork, attitude, business acumen and salesmanship. Well done, Year 6!
As part of the project, the children made their own adverts to sell their products:
On Friday, a group of Year 5 pupils went to the Barbican Centre to perform a piece they have been working on with London Music Masters.
They sang and performed fantastically well, often having their own part to sing amongst a combined choir of four different schools. The singers were accompanied by violinists from other London Music Masters schools; we are looking forward to some of our pupils starting violin lessons next year.
Well done, Year 5!
Here is today’s newsletter. We hope to see you all at the fair!
Yesterday, F1 went to Pizza Express on Baker Street.
The children were able to make a classic Italian Margherita pizza. It gave the children a great experience while picking up some useful skills as well. The children learnt how to knead the dough and create the perfect base. They discovered the importance of using fresh ingredients and they also had a chance to taste some ingredients. The children returned to school with their very own hand-made pizzas. They all loved making their pizzas and all behaved well. Many parents came to help for which we were very grateful.
