Year 2 had such fun following instructions to make their very own disgusting sandwiches like in the story that we had read. They were amazing chefs and thought of lots of verbs to collect and synonyms vocabulary for ‘disgusting’. We are looking forward to writing our own disgusting soup recipes.
We are very proud to welcome our Reception Class of 2020 to St Mary’s School.
Today our Reception pupils were presented with their own special prayer books by Rev Katy.
Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond our control Year 6 were unable to be part of this service but sent their love and best wishes to each of their buddies.
Mrs Hardman challenged us to put the fire out in Pudding Lane, but by the time we had got water from the River Thames the fire had spread! We had great fun learning why the fire of London started and how hard it was to stop it spreading.
Year 2 enjoyed taking part in a workshop today. They explored the lives, times and achievements of Christopher Columbus and Neil Armstrong. They learnt about the similarities between these 2 significant people by recreating the events of their journeys. They enjoyed audiobooks, videos, quizzes and drama activities.

The children took part in a thought-provoking Ash Wednesday Service. This was led by Reverend Katy Cunliffe, who was accompanied by Reverend Dorothy and Mr Sanderson to mark the beginning of Lent.
All pupils came to school wearing their Christmas Jumper to raise money for Christmas Jumper Day. Pupils and staff raised over £200.
Pupils from the School Council ran the event and started the day with worship to explain how by wearing a Christmas Jumper and making a donation we are helping other children around the world.
The School Choir performed superbly at many events across Oldham during the Christmas period. Performances include :
Christmas Lunch and Carols at The United Reformed Church in Shaw
The Rotary Carol Service held at St James Church
As well as a fantastic opportunity to perform at the Oldham Music Carol Concert alongside other school choirs with one of our pupils taking the lead solo.
The Year Two to Year Six children have taken part in a number of hands-on and reflective activities, in order to learn all about Christmas. They have learnt about why Jesus was a gift and also how they can prepare their hearts for Christmas, during Advent, by forgiving others and saying sorry for any wrongdoings. They also learnt how to overcome their fears and have confidence, when they face any challenges, understanding that God would be with them, just like he was with Mary when she received the announcement from an angel. The children were left with the question, after listening to the words of the poet Christina Rossetti, how could they give their heart to others and carry on Jesus’ work through their actions’.
Infant Show and Nativity
We were so proud of all our infant pupils who performed so well in front of 4 large audiences. They danced, sang and acted brilliantly during the ‘Sugar Plum Show’ and ‘Nursery Rhyme Nativity’.
