F1 – Unleavened Bread Making

Yesterday in F1, the children learnt about the story of the Last Supper and made unleavened bread to share with each other. They used flour, butter, oil, eggs, honey and salt to make their bread, but no yeast. They waited while it cooked in the oven and then ate it round a table together, just like Jesus and his disciples did at the Last Supper.

Book Week – Book Cover Doors…

This week, every class has been decorating their classroom door to resemble a favourite book cover. There has been a brilliant range of books across all ages, and the children and staff have done an incredible job. Sarah Bedford, our Chair of Governors, judged them and decided that Year 1’s cover for ‘Where the Wild Things Are’ was the best. They will win £100 of books and resources for their class.

World Book Day

Today, we celebrated World Book Day at St Mary’s. Despite the snow, many children and staff came to school dressed as a word, for our whole school vocabulary parade. There were some fantastic costumes and the children very eloquently gave examples of how to put their word into a sentence. Well done, everyone. You have done an amazing job today!

Also this week, we have had mystery readers in class each day, trips to Daunt’s Bookshop and ‘Drop Everything And Read’. Here are some of the children reading in a DEAR session:

Yesterday, children had lots of fun exploring the snow!

F2 Thankfulness Prayers

F2 have been using playdough to make the things they are thankful for, as part of our weekly class worship. Some children made happy faces to show their thankfulness for being happy, and some made bracelets for their mums to show they are thankful for them. They used these to help them pray and reflect.


Year 4 Visit to Holy Trinity Church

On Thursday, Year 4 visited Holy Trinity church in Sloane Square. They had been learning about the Trinity in RE last term, and so they were able to look for and explore symbols of the Trinity in this church. The Rector of Holy Trinity church gave the children a wonderful tour (including being able to go up into the pulpit) and helped them to find all the different symbols around the church. The children also learnt about the Eucharist (Holy Communion), and saw the special silver patten and chalice used at the church. One child said ‘this is wonderful, I feel holy just being here.’ Miss Norman used to work at Holy Trinity, so there is a special link between our schools. On the way, we even saw horses from Buckingham Palace!
