Maths Problem Solving

We have been working together to solve puzzles using clues and what we know about numbers.

Macmillan Coffee Morning

Year 2 led a class assembly on Friday about superheroes, famous people and Macmillan nurses. They also hosted a coffee morning to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support. The raised an amazing £698.12!

Thank you to everyone who supported the event.

Ice Lollies

We have been doing lots of practical activities to sort different things using a Venn Diagram. We co-operated really well. We have been sorting items using 2 criteria. We got much better at it during the Lesson.

Big Writing

We have really enjoyed writing with our special ‘firework’ pencils. We have been writing a description about bonfire night. We have been thinking about using adjectives to make our writing more interesting.

Electrical Challenge

Mrs Hardman challenged us to make a bulb light up using just 1 bulb, 1 battery, 2 wires and some tape. We persevered and you can see from our faces that we were really proud of ourselves when we succeeded!

Easter 2016

We were amazed at the fantastic Easter service, which our Year Four class performed in Church on the last day of term. The acting was awesome, the singing beautiful and the speaking clearly projected. Well done to every member of the class. Your professional approach and confidence was inspirational. You are all super stars!

Halloween

Year 2 had great fun having a mini halloween party to inspire our writing. We wrote recounts of what we had done during the halloween half term. We wrote on special pumpkin paper and tried to meet lots of our writing targets!

Fire of London Challenge

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 spread and how hard it was to stop it getting bigger.

Pancake Day

Year 1 had a great time doing the sponsored pancake event. Thank you to all your support sponsoring the children. The children enjoyed the activity and they showed great skill!!!

Year 5 Light and Dark

We found out about day and night from Year 5 children. They were very good at explaining information and we were excellent at listening.

HMP Prison Visit

The Community Team from HM Prison service have special dogs that work with them. We enjoyed meeting Charlotte, who is 4 years old.

Broadfield Christmas Visit

In December, Broadfield School visited Year 1 to celebrate Christmas. We shared time with them at playtime and participating in various activities. Everybody had a great time.

Welcome to the Year 1 Class Page

Our teacher is Mrs Ernest. We are also lucky to have Mrs Atkinson helping us. We will be going on lots of visits and having interesting visitors throughout the year to help us with our learning. We recently went to Broadfield participate in Eid Celebrations.

Eid Celebration

In October, Year 1 visited Broadfield School to celebrate Eid. We watched their special assembly, and then shared time with them at playtime and participating in various activities. Everybody had a great time.

Actions Have Consequences 2019

Pupils had a great day with Greater Manchester Police and HM Prison service finding out about dangers and how to keep themselves safe. The day included opportunities to meet the police dogs and gave the children some valuable thinking time to consider ‘life lessons’ and the consequences of thoughtful (and thoughtless!) behaviour.

 

 

Anti-Bullying Show

Years 1 to 6 pupils all took part in an anti-bullying show called ‘The power of one’! We learnt that bullying is purposeful, deliberate and repeatedly hurting someone. Bullying can be verbal or physical and that verbal bullying is when words can hurt and physical bullying is when actions can hurt. We were reminded that we should always tell a teacher if any bullying is seen happening and thought about what each of us can do to help. We all made a promise to make sure that there is no bullying at St Mary’s.

Flip for iPads

Pupils at St. Mary’s School flipped pancakes to raise money for iPads. Over a £1,000 has been pledged and money is still being collected. The pupils had a fabulous time as well as raising an amazing amount of money. We will keep you posted on the final total raised. Thank you to everyone who helped on the day and to everyone who sponsored the pupils.

Paralympian Visit

We were very fortunate to have Josie Cichockyj, a former British Paralympian and Team GB basketball player visit our school a few weeks ago. She came to talk about what she had accomplished in life and to talk about making the most of the opportunities we get day after day. After a great talk in the hall, Josie visited the different classes and chatted with the children.

Easter Experience

The Year Four Easter assembly was held in church with each child taking part.  The pupils worked really hard to ensure that they new all the words to re- tell the story of Easter week.  It was was a fantastic success!  The class were amazing, not only in their acting skills, but their beautiful singing voices, with Thomas and Joseph giving eye watering solo performances!  Joshua Collins took the role of Jesus very seriously and wowed the congregation with his acting. Mrs Higgins and Mrs Booth are so impressed and proud of the achievements of this impressive group of budding actors and actresses. Well done everybody.

Espanyol at St Marys

¡Hola chicos y chicas!
( Hello boys and girls!)

Please see below for a list of things we have been learning this term. We have been having conversations round school, asking each other lots of questions:

How are you? ¿Qué tal?

And the reply can be: Muy bien!, Fenomenal! Fantastico! Fatal! Regular! Casi, casi.

We also know how to ask each other’s name:

¿Còmo te llamas? To which the reply is Me llamo … ( I am called…)

Years 4, 5 and 6 also know colours and numbers to 20.

Next term we will be learning about families and the weather!

We have a great connection with our link primary school in Spain. Check out their website, www.colegioelhaya.com
