Here we share events that happen across our school. For year group specific events, please see their class page.
The children competed in houses in a week of activity. After a close contest, St Andrew's were declared champions!
Beat the Street
Our whole school got active and competitive when 'beating the street!' - collecting points and keeping St Mary's near the top of the local leaderboards.
Bears of Sheffield
Throughout the Summer term, the whole school has got behind our Bears of Sheffield fundraiser raising money for Sheffield Children's Hospital and contributing to our 'Mary Beary' bear design. Our final event was a sponsored Bear Run. It was fantastic to see Mary Beary out in the world too.
Blessed Mary Feast Day
At the end of the month of Mary, we celebrated our Patron Saint with a feast day - a day of celebration. This was a joyous occasion culminating in all children contributing to a shared display.
School Games Week
Every class took part in a fun week of activities to motivate and inspire us to get involved in being active and take part in school sport. Activities included table tennis, orienteering and street dance!
World Maths Day
We celebrated World Maths Day with games, stories, multiplication battles and problem solving. The children all had a great time.
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.
