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! Check out the photographs in the gallery below.


Bishop Ralph Blesses Prayer Garden

Today we celebrated the blessing and opening of our Prayer Garden by Bishop Ralph. A special thank you to Richard Watts for making our special Easter Cross. It is for our community to use as a place of peace, prayer and spiritual reflection. Love God,  Love Learning, Love Life.

What a great end to Sports Week!

At the end of today we had a Sports Week assembly to think about everything we had done during the week and to celebrate our recent sporting achievements across the school. We thought about how doing the different activities made us feel (the most popular words were 'it was fun'). Children at St. Marie's have thrown themselves into everything this week. We especially have loved seeing the 'have a go' attitude. As our final activity the whole school had a zumba session to the song (it had to be this one to finish off our week) 'I like to move it, move it'



Super Scooters for Sports Week

Today the children showed off their scootering skills on the playground. They competed a challenging obstacle course and even Mr F and Miss Healy had a go too!
