Despite being a very short half term, the 4 weeks have been extremely busy, hard work taking place across the school. A HUGE well done to our Year 6 children on completing their SATs. The children all showed enormous resilience, great maturity and sheer determination. You are all superstars and we are so proud of you! Well done goes to our Year 2 class who have also worked hard completely their special tests. And to all the remaining year groups you continue to wow and amaze us and we are all very proud!
Nursery - thank you to all those who responded to our Nursery consultation. We appreciate all the responses. We are still waiting to hear whether we have secured funding from the Diocese to support our proposal. We will provide updates as soon as we are able. We have had a great response to the proposal and have started a waiting list. Please contact the school office if you wish to place your 3/4 year old on the waiting list.
Every school has its own challenges as regards traffic and parking. It is for the safety of our children at St Mary's and surrounding schools that we must consider our actions when driving or parking in the vicinity of our school. Thank you to all family and friends of St Mary's who continue to support both St Mary's and SFX in making the area safer and parking considerately.
A huge thank you to Ms Wales and her excellent team of volunteers who held the end of term disco on the last day of the spring term. The whole school had a fabulous time and £350.20 was raised for the school funds. Funding that we are so grateful for that will go towards further curriculum resources which will support our children at St Mary's. Thank you from us all! Look out for communication regarding our Summer event next half term!
Yorkshire Air Ambulance - Thank you to everyone who donated to the Easter Egg Hunt we raised a fantastic total of £176.20 for their charity. All the children had great fun searching for the eggs.
Year 1 have had a fantastic half term, learning lots of different skills and putting them into practise. Kicking off our India topic we joined forces with Year 2 to create some brilliant Indian music. Some children played musical instruments whilst the rest of the children sang the words and performed the dance. Mrs Whitehead was so impressed that she even asked us to perform it in the celebration assembly. Playing cricket allowed Year 1 to learn a new game, we practised throwing and catching balls with our partner before having a competition to see who could hit the most wickets. It was great fun! Whilst learning about the weather we took on the role of weather reporters and filmed ourselves reporting the weather. At the start of the term, Year 1 led a beautiful assembly on May is the month of Mary. Everyone worked so hard throughout the week, practising their part and reading loudly and clearly. I’m sure you’ll all agree that Year 1 did an incredible job! Mrs Jackson-Cooper.
Year 2 have worked extremely hard this half term. We have completed all of our tests and quizzes and we enjoyed reading new stories and working out puzzles. We are really looking forward to the summer sun and take care of ourselves by putting on sun cream and hats and drinking plenty of water. We have started growing sunflowers and beans and are taking good care of them by watering them each day. We have played cricket and learned samba drumming with visiting teachers from Richmond School which was fantastic! We have lots more super activities and events planned for next half term. See you then! Mrs Tucker.
