Turning of the Year
Our School Choir represented St Mary’s with pride and a high quality performance at Blackheath Concert Halls. As well as performing 2 solo songs ‘Away in a manger’ and ‘The angel Gabriel’ they also performed in several group songs alongside other Lewisham schools. Thanks to our School Governor, Chris Stringfellow, for supporting our School Choir.
We are very proud to have received this award, which recognises how our School Vision and Values support the wellbeing and education of everyone in our School Community. We hope you enjoy reading the report:
Times Table Challenge Final!
Congratulations to all of our children who practised hard, learnt their times table facts and took part in their class heats. 2 finalists from each class battled it out in front of the whole school to find our 2021 champions!
Lewisham Youth Theatre
Lewisham Youth Theatre came to our school for a workshop with a selection of children from Year 5 and 6. The focus was on well-being and as you can see it took place in our therapeutic garden! The pupils had to organise some thoughts and feelings in order before doing some role play.
We definitely have a few budding actors and actresses! More opportunities with Lewisham Youth Theatre in the New Year so watch this space….
Walk with Amal
Amal the giant walking puppet walked all the way from the Syrian/Turkish border across 8000km and 8 countries and finally arrived in the UK. Year 5 were on Deptford High Street to give her a very warm and special welcome along with lots of other children from Lewisham schools! As Lewisham's first School of Sanctuary St. Mary's had a very special part to play and accompanied Amal with giant bunting down the high street to Giffin Square where a huge poster was hanging which had been created by Years 5 and 6. Ayana then gave Amal a giant Paddington sticker. Remember Paddington Bear was also a refugee like Amal!
Year 5 also spoke with the Mayor of Lewisham Damian Egan and Councillor Kevin Bonavia who has visited our school before. We even featured on BBC news that night! Year 5 were a real credit to the school and lots of people complimented them on their brilliant behaviour and good manners during what was a very busy celebration.
It was an amazing day and we are grateful to our governors and parents who accompanied us on the trip!
