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!!!
We found out about day and night from Year 5 children. They were very good at explaining information and we were excellent at listening.
The Community Team from HM Prison service have special dogs that work with them. We enjoyed meeting Charlotte, who is 4 years old.
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.
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.
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.
Our new reception class are settling in nicely. We are all very busy getting to know each other and finding our way around the indoor and outdoor classrooms.
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.
Pupils in school lead a superb assembly as part of our Christian Grounbreakers all about being Lost and the Found.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
¡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!
