I just want to point you in the direction of a new set of resources on our ‘Learning’ tab dropdown on the website.
If you click on it, you will find a range of resources and documents that contain some useful advice: especially if your children are struggling somewhat during the lockdown.
Please take a moment to have a look at the resources – particularly the information on World Mental Health Awareness Day.
Don’t forget, if we can help – we will do our best. There is usually someone here at school you can talk to.
Best wishes to you all on behalf of all the staff here at St Mary’s.
Thank you for sending us some photos of the lovely work you have been completing at home, we love to see what you have been doing. We are very proud of you for working so hard. We are missing you all and hope to see you soon.
Take care and stay safe,
Mrs Burke and Mrs Booth
Year 4 had a fantastic trip to the Grosvenor Musuem in Chester. We enjoyed learning all about life in Roman times and getting to experience being members of the Roman army!
Children had a great time participating in a debate as part of learning about the British values – individual liberty and democracy. We discussed whether Shaw market should stay on the high street or move back to it’s old location behind the shops. There were strong arguments from both sides. After a heated debate, a vote was taken. The result was the majority wanted the market to stay on the high street. Well done everyone for taking part!
We’re so proud of all of our amazing Year 4s for their incredible performance in their class assembly. Children clearly delivered key messages on the importance of respect.
Well done Year 4!
Year 4 have had a very busy morning creating biscuits to sell tomorrow. The money raised will go to charity. There were many exciting combinations, like chocolate and cherry and banana and cinnamon! They worked well as a team.
Year 4 enjoyed a wonderful trip to the Hindu temple. We learnt lots about the Hindu faith. During our visit we observed the ceremony arti, looked at models of gods and goddess and the heard the stories behind them and also got to try some prasad! Thank you very much to the volunteers at the Hindu temple for allowing us to visit.
Year 4 had a great time finishing off our Spain topic with a Spanish afternoon. We enjoyed trying some Spanish food, listening to Spanish music, creating some artwork inspired by the Spanish artist Gaudi and had a go at Flamenco dancing.
Children enjoyed participating in a debate on whether Shaw Market should stay on the High Street or move back behind the shops. They took on roles as different members of the local community either for or against the issue and discussed their opinions. After all opinions had been shared a democratic vote was held.
The teachers in our class are Mrs Booth (Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday morning) and Mrs Burke (Wednesday afternoon, Thursday and Friday.)
Our Big Questions this year are: Why were the Romans so powerful and how do we know they were in our area? Donde en España estoy? (Where in Spain am I?) Where in the UK am I? Who were the greatest invaders? We will be going on lots of visits and having interesting visitors throughout the year to help us with our learning.
