Superstar Nativity

Yesterday Reception and Key Stage 1 performed their Nativity 'Superstar' for the rest of the school. The children sang their hearts out, performed the actions with gusto and really got into the spirit of Christmas. In the words of the Angel Gabriel it was a 'roaring success'. We can't wait for our family and friends to come and see it today and tomorrow at 2pm.

Well done Reception and Key Stage 1 we think you are all Superstars!

Sportshall Athletic Superstars!

Last night a group of Athletes from Y4, Y5 and Y6 took part in the Links Sportshall Athletics Final at GOALS, All Saints. The children ran their fastest, threw their furthest and jumped their longest and most of all tried their absolute best. Overall we came 3rd, narrowly missing out on qualifying, but we are so proud of all the talented athletes that represented their school last night! Well done Team St. Marie's!


Today my mum and I talked to Mrs Twomey’s class and Miss Hanson’s class about Hanukah (the festival of light).

We talked about how the Maccabees (a strong group of courageous men) defeated the Syrian Greek army to win back the Holy Temple.

The first miracle was that a small group of courageous Jewish men defeated over 40,000 men with only small weapons and some with no weapons at all.

When the Syrian Greeks fled from Jerusalem the Maccabees went back to the temple and found that the temple’s golden Merorah was stolen by the Syrian Greeks. The Maccabees had to make a new Merorah out of cheaper metal.

When they had finished the Merorah they had to light it but they could only find a small amount of pure oil to light it with. The oil could only last for a day or so.

The second miracle was that the olive oil lasted for eight days until the Jewish people could make more pure oil.

After that I handed a chocolate coin to everyone in class and we played a game called Dreidel. The Dreidel has four different sides meaning ‘a great miracle happened there’. Then we answered some questions. It was really fun helping my mum and the class out.
