Latest News and Events


Principal’s Corner
The summer term has started with a bang. Our House Captains have been sorting the books for the book swap; reading is one of our big things and the infants are enjoying their new acquisitions. “Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body”.
The infants are focussed on the natural world and are currently incorporating the life cycle of the frog into literacy and numeracy lessons. They are also hatching some eggs, but don’t count your chickens !!
Year 3 & 4 have moved out of the damp humid Rainforest and are now studying the Greek culture, buildings, myths and of course urns. The urns were made out of papier mache and skilfully decorated. Well done.
Year 6 are heads down and working flat out for their SATs, that start on the 9th May with a reading and comprehension paper. We all wish them good luck and hope they do their best.
With the newsletter is a questionnaire which will give us valuable information as to how we can continue to improve the learning journey of your child. Please complete and place in the box in the entrance hall.
Finally many of you are aware we are looking into the possibility of incorporating a nursery class into the school in 2017. The consultation was very positively in favour and we are now looking into the feasibility and costs.

Friends of St Mary’s
FOSMs have a new, blue striped tent! (Using money kindly donated by the village show last year). It will have all sorts of fun activities for the children at the village show on Monday: face-painting, guess how many balloons in the car, story-telling, colouring competition (& somewhere to change nappies & feed babies). Please come along and support us!
Please also help at the tent for an hour (see rota on the school notice board). PS. Bring your bags of old clothes/shoes for ‘rags to riches’ by Tuesday. THANKS

Sport - Swimming
Congratulations go to Jayden who has achieved his Red badge, Luke & Maria their Green and Zosia & Sam R who have also achieved their Blue badges. Well done and it’s now the infants turn to swim for the next six weeks. In PE we have moved to the summer sports of rounders and kwik-cricket and in a few weeks, as the weather warms, athletics. Mike will shortly be starting an after school cricket club.
