World Book Day 2019

Here are some more photos of St Marie's children celebrating World Book Day, last week.

EYFS and KS1 had an assembly at the start of the day to explain why we celebrate WBD, followed by a story read by Mr Fernandes and finally a 'catwalk' of all the fabulous costumes. The younger children participated in a carousel of activities in classes and the older children engaged in story-related activities with their teachers. On Friday the whole school came together for a celebratory assembly to showcase what they had done on WBD. For more details, see the newsletter.

Each child was given a World Book Day Token which they can exchange for a special book at any participating bookshop. They have until 31st March to do this.

Thank you to all the children, parents and staff for making the day such a successful one.

Y6 Table Tennis Team @ the EIS

On Friday the Y6 Table Tennis Team went to the EIS to play against Mundella. The children played for 2 hours and showed their skills in serving, rallying and scoring. All of the children played really well and we even had Christian and Lois as the undefeated pair of the night! Well done to all and thank you to all the parents who supported!

Y3/4 Football tournament Champions!

Last Wednesday the Y3/4 Football team went to Mlynhurst School to take part in the Mlynhurst Invitational Competition. Despite facing all weathers, the boys played as a superb team. The matches were all close but through our great teamwork and determination we were crowned winners! Well done to all involved and to our parents to supporting too! Well done team!

Brilliant Badminton Tournament!

On Saturday, some of the Y6 girls competed in a Badminton Tournament. The girls played fantastically and came first in both the singles and doubles matches!

Well done girls, you played brilliantly! Go St Marie's!

Gymnastic Greatness!

Yesterday we took 3 Gymnastic teams to the Keysteps Competition. Our Y3/4 Foundation team, Y5/6 Foundation team and our Y5/6 Advanced team. The teams each had to learn and perform a floor routine and a vault. The children were scored on their routine and jump. The children all performed really well and showed what great athletes they were as well as great team work and sportsmanship. It was a super event to attend and all of the children had a great time! Well done to all of the children involved and to our parents for supporting us!

Welcome Back!

As a 'welcome back to school' the children went outside for an additional 30 minutes on Tuesday afternoon to engage with all the teachers, teaching assistants and students.

Everyone played cooperative games and had fun together in the beautiful sunshine.

This is part of our ongoing commitment to promote 'healthy minds' in school. The children were calm and happy. Lots of laughter could be heard and everyone commented on what a positive and lovely experience it was for our St Marie's family.
