Dynamic Dinosaurs!

During Arts Week Reception and Key Stage 1 have enjoyed a week of all things Dinosaurs! The classes have taken part in a range of activities throughout the week including; Dinosaur Zumba, instrument making for the ‘Dino Scrap Band’, dinosaur den building, cave painting and making dinosaur pictures in the woods. 

Botanical Gardens!

As part of our Arts Week celebrations Reception and Year 1 visited the Botanical Gardens on Thursday. It was a beautiful sunny day and the children enjoyed looking at the sculptures, plants and flowers, the glass house and visiting the bear pit!

Both classes met at the end of the morning and made fantastic pictures using all of the natural materials they collected on the way round.

Special Olympians Visit St Marie's

This summer, Sheffield will be the hosts of the Special Olympics 2017. These Games are for athletes with an intellectual (learning) disability. Last Monday, during assembly, we welcomed two athletes from the Special Olympics squad, Niall Guite and Alexander Thompson, to share their experiences with us. They are Sheffield athletes, and they won Gold medals in the basketball at the Special Olympics World Summer Games, Los Angeles in 2015. Their message to us all was to work hard and to keep going, even if we are faced with great challenges.

We are very fortunate that Sheffield has been chosen to host this international sporting event, and we hope that you will be able to attend some of the events with your children to cheer our athletes on. There will be an opening ceremony at Bramall Lane on 7th August, followed by four days of sporting events at different venues in Sheffield. The 23 events will include athletics, badminton, basketball, football and power lifting. All the sporting events are free of charge for spectators.

Gold! Gold! Gold!

We've done it again! For the 3rd year running we have been awarded the Gold Mark for our commitment to competitive sport. This is for the sports we play in and out of school. A big thanks to everyone who supports us in being able to take part in lots of sporting events. Thanks to our children too who just love playing all kinds of sports!

Did you know that every child in KS2 has participated in a sporting event this year?

Summer Fair Woodland Workshops

We held Forest School workshops in the woods at the summer fair on Saturday for the first time. Our wood was a hive of activity as children crafted and cooked while the dappled sunlight shone through our woodland canopy. Children had great fun whittling and decorating magical woodland wands and cooking damper bread over an open fire. Have a look at the photographs below.

Fun in the Sun!

A huge thank you to everyone who made our summer fair such a huge success today. We were blessed with a fine day, a great crowd of helpers and organisers, and a large turnout from families in our community. I would like to pass my sincere thanks to our Home School Association for the organisation of today and all their hard work throughout the year. Thanks also to all the volunteers and every member of staff who generously gave up their time to make today’s fair one of the best! Of course, thank you to all our families, friends and especially the children for supporting the event. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. Well done to everybody!
