Year 5 is a wonderful year to watch the children achieve great success. The curriculum is varied, creative and yet increasingly demanding. New skills are taught and we improve one’s already acquired. Homework builds up, and children are expected to become more independent in their learning. That all being said, the topics are inviting and, hopefully inspiring to all pupils.
We find that pupils rise to the challenge as they are heavily praised and celebrated for their efforts, everyone is treated individually and encouraged to reach their full potential. Any children who are showing to have educational difficulties are supported, and where possible intervention put into place. Our higher achievers are recognised and expected to strive for the stars. Pastoral care in Year 5 is important as hormones can be starting to surface! We ensure that a good relationship is built with parents and children are supported through times of need. Plenty of time is given to personal, social and cultural learning about themselves and others.

From Year 1 coming into school as Superheroes, Year 2 designing transport and sharing their presentations, to culinary delights throughout the Juniors, the projects have been wonderful. In Year 6 we have seen Titanic models, films, and presentations. Year 5 have produced Egyptian wonders such as masks and pyramids. Year 4 have travelled back into […]
Our children have had a wonderful time at the Westmorland Show, meeting HRH The Countess of Wessex. Year 4, 5 and 6 attended throughout the day which was mercifully dry for the majority of the time.
Congratulations to Freya and James who have become our new Head Boy and Head Girl. Congratulations to Beth and Marley who are now Deputy Head Girl and Boy also. All of the children who took part in the presentations were very confident, producing powerpoints, films and superb speeches. Well done!

The show had various surprises and was an amazing combination of song, dance and […]
St Mary’s played host to Sedbergh Primary School on the QES astroturf for a couple of excellent football matches.

Mr Watson, who trained both […]
