St Mary's have been active in responding to the crisis in Ukraine. We have held fundraising events to raise much needed money to support those caught up in the conflict. An own clothes day was held with the theme of 'Blue and Yellow' to represent the colours of the Ukrainian flag.
Our children's Faith Group planned a Cake Sale and designed posters. Thank you to the generosity of our parents who donated cakes and biscuits, this ensured that everyone could enjoy a sweet treat at the end of the day whilst raising money. Special thanks to our star bakers as many parents prepared delicious cakes at home - some even decorated in blue and yellow!
Our amazing Girls football team have been representing the school at a series of league matches in Sydenham. Every Monday after school they have been busy showing off their skills on the pitch as they play against local Lewisham schools. Win, lose or draw, the girls always play with enthusiasm, teamwork and respect. We are very proud of them!
Our children enjoyed an after school club in the Spring Term, led by the Iroko Theatre company. Over several weeks, the children learned different elements of storytelling, leading up to a final performance. The combination of music, drama and storytelling created a wonderful atmosphere. In addition, our teachers received training from Iroko.
We have come to the end of another very exciting Book Week!
The children have had a marvellous time diving into lots of non-fiction books during their class reading banquets and teacher swap!
On Tuesday, they were inspired by the award-winning author, Colin Stuart, who came in to take the children on a journey to Mars. Year 5 were inspired by the fantastic facts that Colin shared with them and created some rocket-themed stop motion animations.
The children have also been analysing information from book surveys using technology to create charts and graphs. They even planned and carried out a ‘Dress Up Day’ Photoshoot. The children got creative with their costumes and came dressed as scientists, astronauts, Egyptians, and many other special people who made history, like Mary Seacole, Usain Bolt and even Abraham Lincoln! They all looked amazing and loved seeing all their teachers dressed up in silly outfits too!
