Weekly update for 17th May 2024- Pentecost

Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in them the fire of your love.
Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created.
And you shall renew the face of the earth.

O God, Who did instruct the hearts of your faithful by the light of the Holy Spirit,
grant us in the same Spirit to be truly wise, and ever to rejoice in His consolation.
Through Christ, our Lord.

Amen.

Walk to School Week 2024

This year, St Mary’s will be taking part in Walk to School Week from the 20th– 24th May. Our school will be joining hundreds of others from across the UK in a fun and engaging week-long activity, designed to make pupils experience first-hand the importance of walking to school. This year's challenge encourages children to travel actively to school every day of the week. Pupils will be encouraged to walk, wheel, cycle and scoot to school every day of the week, earning stickers as they
go along.

On Thursday 23rd May, we will hold our annual Walk to School Breakfast. Pupils who travel actively to school, for the majority of the week will be given a healthy snack and drink, before they start
school. Through this challenge, children will be well on their way to reaching their recommended 60 minutes minimum of physical activity per day before, even reaching the school gates!

Year 2 – ‘Clever Never Goes’ Workshop


PC Taylor from the Metropolitan Police Service visited year 2 on Tuesday. He delivered a fantastic workshop and taught the children about how to spot dangerous situations and how to stay safe. He also shared tips about how to respond. The children discussed different scenarios and what to do and say when something isn’t ok. They asked lots of questions and enjoyed the workshop.

 

Year 3 Ancient Greek Day

As part of Ancient Greek topic, Year Three spent the day living as ancient Greeks. Firstly, we made identity cards to show we were citizens of either Athens or Sparta, these included our Greek names and city state logo. Next, we made laurel wreaths from craft materials. In Ancient Greece, they were made of branches and leaves of the laurel, a type of evergreen shrub or small tree. It was worn on the head as a symbol of triumph.

We also took the time to study the designs of different Olympic medals. This helped us to make our own medals, with a unique design, from clay. To finish off our day, the classes sampled a variety of Greek foods. These included: pitta bread, olives, hummus and feta cheese. The olives in particular, were very popular!

 

Year 3 visit Richmond Theatre


As part of our English topic, studying theatre and play scripts, Year 3 had the opportunity to visit Richmond Theatre to watch a production of ‘Awful Auntie’. We were very lucky to be the first children in the local area to watch the Birmingham Stage Company present David Walliams’ amazing adventure! The play featured a small ghost, a huge owl and a very awful Auntie! It gave us a great chance to put what we have learnt about theatre etiquette into practise. We all gave the five actors on a stage, the round of applause they deserved for their wonderful acting and puppetry skills!

 

 

Have a lovely weekend everyone!
