Congratulations Garnet Class on 100% attendance last week!

Our teams from KS1 really enjoyed competing in the multi-skills sporting event last week!

 

Our concert ‘Summer Holiday’ was brilliant! We hope you enjoyed it too. Thank you to the staff for all of their hard work in putting the show together, to the children for their great performances and to our families for their support. Your generous donations have raised £486.00 towards our charities – thank you!

    

The Festival Fete was such a lovely event.
Thank you for coming along to support us – we hope you had a great time. An amazing £870.00 has been raised, which will support The Need Project, The Good Neighbour Group and the school SMSA also.
A
huge thank you to Mrs Flanagan, Mrs Etere, school staff & their families, the SMSA and all of the volunteers who helped make this such a success.


 

Congratulations also to our Yr 4 team who were champions in the ‘Wacky Races’!

 Congratulations also to James, Tommy and Anna Elvin who ran a teddy tombola at the fete.
They have raised £73.10 for the charity ‘Mary’s Meals’. Thank you!

 



Well done to our choir who sang so beautifully at the Festival Songs of Praise yesterday!
Thanks to Miss Hunt for leading them too.


Tomorrow afternoon the Year 4 children are visiting Etonbury for a PE transition event with
Year 4 children from the other lower schools too.

 On Wednesday Jet and Crystal class have a visit from ‘Teaching Talons’ as part of their science topic this term.

Thursday's assembly will be all about the Christian Holiday Club,
which will be running in the first week of the summer holidays.

 

 Please can we remind you that children should not be playing football or going onto the slope area of the playground before and after school. Thank you.


I am delighted to inform you that St. Mary’s has been judged ‘Outstanding’ in our
recent SIAMS (Statutory Inspection of Anglican & Methodist Schools) Inspection.
