Lord Mayor’s Charity Celebration

Congratulations to all the children who performed at the Lord Mayor’s Charity Carol celebration at St Marie’s Cathedral on Thursday evening. It was a joyous and moving evening which our children contributed to. They sang beautifully, with passion and represented our school impeccably. Well done to all the children and thank you to Mrs Twomey for all her hard work and preparation

Athletics Final

Well done to our Athletics team who came 3rd in the Sheffield final on Wednesday at Springs Academy. They never gave up and only missed out on the South Yorkshire finals by 3 points! Miss Healy and Mr Fernandes were very proud of them.

Violin Assembly Concert

We started our assembly with a well recognised piece called ‘Santa Claus is coming to Town’; this was played by the more experienced violinists. After that the children who were very good played ‘Gipsy Fiddle’. Then, some of the newest violin players played a piece named ‘Manhattan Blues’ this was a very exciting piece in which the children were asked to improvise to the groove of the music. Next came all of our Christmas carols; Jingle Bells came first a very jolly piece of traditional music, silent night a much more calm song, away in a manger which is another calm song and the most happy and fun song called Christmas Calypso.

Written by some of the violinists.

Y4 Basketball Superstars

On Wednesday the Y4 Basketball team went to All Saints 'Goals' to compete in basketball competition. They showed great determination and resillience, sportsmanship and teamwork, along with great basketball skills. Well done to all who competed. You were superb ambassadors for our school! Many thanks to all the parents who were able to support too!

Eco Hour at St Marie's!

Today, the children came back inside the school building after their break to find that all of the lights, interactive whiteboards and computers had been switched off by members of our Eco Committee. This was to raise awareness of Switch Off Fortnight. We were hoping for a cloudier day when we switched the lights off, because we wanted to experience what it would be like to try and learn in the dark as some children in the world have to. Although some classrooms ended up being darker than others, all the children in every class took time to think about the value of energy in our daily lives and discuss the effects of having no electricity. We're all ready (even the teachers!) for our 'No Interactive Whiteboard Day' on Monday!
