NEWSLETTER JUNE 2017

Principal’s Corner
What an eventful June. Mrs Shaw, Mrs Eckley and Mrs Kyles’ Classes have all completed their SATs. Ofsted have been and gone and interest in the school has increased with a potential 12/13 starting in September. In the infants we now only have two places across the three year groups. It’s hard to believe that when we started there were only 4 infants.
‘A small school with a BIG curriculum,’ said Ofsted and yes, that is one of our aims - to provide a broad-based curriculum. The Infants have been working in the Church looking at Christian symbols and also the stories that stained glass windows depict. The Lower Juniors have been cricketing and having a French picnic. The Upper Juniors have been to Birmingham Symphony Hall to listen to the BSO and to the new hitech Library.
We also entered a team for the Herefordshire Maths Championships who performed well. Before the end of term the Infants visit Goodrich Castle and the Butterfly Farm while the Upper Juniors have a PGL adventure weekend. All the school will visit St Fagan’s on the last Tuesday of term to experience a Victorian washing day , a Celtic feast and Tudor dressing.

Sport
At St Mary’s we see sports activities as an important aspect in the development of the whole child. On Fridays the Juniors have returned to the pool. Congratulations go to Charlotte and Lulu who have both been awarded their red badges. In rounders we won the Kington area tournament and have progressed to the county championships. Finally, a first - could this be the Olympic Dressage Team of the future? Well done to all, the school is very proud.
