These children enjoyed hot chocolate with Miss Norman on Wednesday this week:
Yesterday Year 2 celebrated the end of their History topic with a Florence Nightingale dress up day. The children had fun consolidating their learning through a variety of activities. These included learning basic first aid with our own Florence Nightingale (Mrs Kennedy) creating the royal Red Cross which was a medal awarded to Florence by Queen Victoria, role play at tidying the Scutari hospital so it was hygienic and finally designing a poster advertising for doctors and nurses, thinking about words that describe them.
We are delighted to have been awarded the Gold RE Quality Mark for our excellent practice in Religious Education. This is a wonderful acknowledgement of the hard work put in by all the staff, as well as contributions by parents and our local community, to ensure that our children receive high quality Religious Education. Please do look at the RE page of our website to see examples of the children’s wonderful work.
We are passionate about this subject at St Mary’s because we believe that learning about each other’s religions and beliefs is an essential part of living in modern Britain and making a positive contribution to society, but most of all it is one of the ways to ‘love your neighbour as yourself’. As a Church School, we also believe in the importance of teaching children about the Christian faith and giving them the skills to understand why Christians do what they do.
On Tuesday 6th February, 11 girls from year 5 and 6 went to Paddington Rec to compete in the girls’ football tournament. Everyone played superbly (we did not lose a game!). We won 2 games and drew 3, with Sara scoring 2 goals and Jenin 1 goal. Well done to the whole team for a great day out!
