I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you and your child to Reception. In Reception, we are always busy; exploring our fantastic classroom, our outside areas and our wonderful woods. Learning is fun, practical and play based. We love learning new things, asking fantastic questions and using what we know. We try to be outside as much as possible in all weathers.
I’ve worked in St Mary’s Early Years for the last eleven years and I still love coming to work! I enjoy the challenges that the younger children bring – every day is different! I love seeing the progression throughout the school, especially as I work with most of the children when they arrive here. For […]
I have two young children so when I am not at school I enjoy swimming, biking, going to the beach, reading lots of stories and watching Strictly Come Dancing! As a family, we enjoy listening to and playing music (some tuneful and some not!) as well as going to the cinema and theatre. At the […]
Happy Valentines Day to you all. We have been sharing all of the things we love in our lives as part of our reflections this week. Why not make sure you take time to think of all of the things and people you love. Happy Valentines Day.
Well done to everyone who took part in the Spelling Bee – there were some exceptional hard words by the end of the Spelling Bee.
Thank you to everyone who attended our nativity and carol concerts at St Mary’s Church this year. Once again, the children were fantastic with their singing and acting and really helped create a wonderful atmosphere. The video contains some (slightly blurry – low light and low cameraman skills to blame!) photos of all the classes […]
We had an amazing, if slightly boggy, time raising money for St John’t Hospice with our second annual Elf Run. Everyone, from Nursery to Year 6 got their elf hats on and set off around our course with great enthusiasm. Whilst some socks and shoes may have been temporarily lost to the well placed boggy […]
Thank you for your understanding whilst we prepared for improving the markings outside of school and on the playground. You will now see that our lay by has been properly signposted to show it primarily as a drop off zone with four parking bays (see photos). Please do not park in the drop off zone […]
We are so excited to tell everyone that we have new playground markings at school. We know how excited the children are with their new playground. We are going to have some very active learners using these in lessons! Hurrah!
Please bring a donation of £1 for Children in Need and come in MUFTI on Friday 15th Nov.
Today we have had a visit and question and answer time with Tim Farron who talked with our children today. We have been electing our School, Worship and Sports Councillors this week. It has been lovely to hear Tim’s responses and to hear about how passionate he is about the constituency he has represented.
Each year we celebrate European Languages Day. Each class looks at a different country and explores the languages, culture and geography. We have had a super time! Many classes like to try and explore a new country, this year Belgium was the choice of Year 6.
Wow look at what Mia has been doing…
