Here we share events that happen across our school. For year group specific events, please see their class page.
World Book Day
St Mary's celebrated World Book Day with a Mary Poppins theme for staff and the library was decorated accordingly. Children came dressed up as their favourite characters and spent the day sharing stories and engaging in book activities. That evening, children and their families were invited back to school in their pjs for bedtime stories with hot chocolate.
World Maths Day
St Mary's celebrated World Maths Day with a TTRockstars dress up theme and a day of workshops with the Happy Puzzle Company. Children learnt maths through stories, took part in times tables battles and carried out maths investigations and problem solving.
TTRockstars Pizza Party
The children were challenged over the half term to answer the most questions correctly on TTRockstars. The top 30 children across school were rewarded with a pizza party!
Children in KS2 attended Sheffield Arena as part of Young Voices to form the world's biggest school choir! Along with nearly 5000 other children they sang and danced the night away.
Hinduism and Indian Culture Day
Sunita from the Hinduism Experience spent the day with us helping our children to understand Diwali, Indian lifestyles and culture and Hindu worship, ceremonies and beliefs. They were able to experience traditional Indian clothing, Indian folk dancing and create Rangoli artwork.
That Poetry Bloke
As part of commitment to Active Travel, we were awarded a prize of a visit from 'That Poetry Bloke.' The children spent the day exploring poetry, playing with words and listening to rhymes.
