The teachers in this class this year are Mrs Gates and Mrs Thomas. Year 3 is a very exciting year as the children make the transition from KS1 to KS2. They are encouraged to become more independent both in themselves and their learning. It is also the first year children start playing on the Junior playground with its massive slide, quiet reflection and adventure area.
We learn to play a recorder to a very good standard and read music – a life skill! Our topics are very varied and interesting ranging from the Rainforest, Romans, Coutries on the Meridian and much more. This is a busy year, but we have lots of fun on the way!
I have worked in St Mary’s since 2013 – I started working here before I had even left Sixth Form! I work in Breakfast Club, After School Club, as a midday supervisor and in KS1 and KS2 I love dancing! I started at the age of three and have danced in Blackpool Winter Gardens, The Royal […]
I have been teaching for over twenty years, many of them at St Mary’s. I love teaching here as it’s a very special school with great children and staff. I have taught in most classes in the school but in all of them I love to read stories and to watch the children’s eager faces, […]
Year 3 performed beautifully in St Mary’s Church. They told the Easter Story with clear, strong voices and they remembered all their lines. We wish to say a big thank you to all the parents who helped with costumes and practising lines. Happy Easter. Your hard working children deserve a lovely break!
The staff at St Mary’s have supported the Kenya Day fund raising by doing sit ups and pres ups throughout the day. The target was 500 then we increased it to 600. With a target of 1500 sit ups and then 1500 press ups we are well and truly smashing to target. Thank you to all of […]
Thank you so much for supporting Red Nose Day! We have had a great time together for a very important charity.
Initially we encouraged all of our children to learn new spellings which were taken from the year expectations. After a fun spelling bee in classes each year group put forward finalists for our school spelling bee. The whole school came together to celebrate learning spellings. We had a wonderful time with what turned out to […]
This is just a small reminder of the fantastic Ben Greenep Winter Run held in recently. Clearly a good day at the office! The run is an excellent chance to represent your house and a super opportunity to run together. #marathonkids
We have had some fun in our Class Spelling Bee Challenges. Our whole purpose is to provide a fun opportunity to learn spellings. It is so motivating for children to know they are making progress in their spelling. It is very special to see our children feeling more confident as they improve their spellings and […]
We were very fortunate to have a dry and warm day despite the ground being soft. The Ben Greenep Winter Run went well with the children representing their house and running for individual medals in each class. There was a superb atmosphere and the children even asked to have a little fun run at the end. […]
Here are a few photos of past inter house winter run events. The race was named after the winner of the first ever run. We have developed the run since to an annual winter run. Each member of the junior classes represents their house as well as there being event winners for boys and girls […]
Thanks to the fabulous fund raising efforts of our PTA, Year 3 and 4 are thoroughly enjoying dance and fitness classes with Miss Holly. The classes will run for six weeks. The children are learning a dance routine that they’ll perform for the whole school. They are becoming much more flexible and strong and are […]
This term we will be exploring a whole range of inspiring women from Jane Austin, Frida Kahlo, Marie Chiver, Rosa Parks and many other women who we believe will inspire all of our children. We are exploring their endeavours and seeing how we can learn from them in our own lives in 2019 and beyond.
