Next week’s value is Kindness
“A smile makes people happy. Good news makes them feel better.” Proverbs 15:30
Mrs Radcliffe has been attending a residential Headteachers Conference this week which leaves me to fill you in on this week’s events!
It has been a super busy week here at St Mary’s. The week commenced with everyone still buzzing from the fantastic day at Chiddfest. It really showcased our wonderful village and what can be achieved when the community comes together. However, this is a huge task to organise and our thanks and congratulations go out to Mrs White and her team for their hard work. Well done everyone, you should feel immensely proud!
The ladies from the WI joined us for assembly on Monday morning to present the school with a cup to commemorate their 100th year. The cup is to be presented at the end of the year in our awards ceremony to a Year 6 pupil who has demonstrated a commitment to sustainable living and a desire to promote global awareness, a pupil who wishes to make a difference to our community and our world.
The WI enjoyed the beautiful singing from the children, followed by tea and cake served by our Year 5 pupils.
Year 2 have been undergoing their ‘secret agent’ training this week. (SATs) All have demonstrated perseverance and a maturity beyond their years. Miss Howells is very proud of all them.
On Tuesday I attended a curriculum conference in London. It confirmed for me that we are on the right path with our vision here at St. Mary’s; for all children to be exposed to a broad and balanced curriculum that incorporates wider global issues, enabling them to be critical thinkers and preparing them for their futures.
Year 6 attended a Pentecost workshop at the Cathedral on Wednesday morning whilst the rest of the school took part in ‘share a pencil day’. This is to highlight to the children how fortunate they are to have access to an education, something that we take for granted and yet is denied to many children across the globe. Thank you to Mrs Spong for organising this event.
Friday is the last day of this half term, so our Celebration Assembly will take place at 2.15 to present completed certificates. Everyone is welcome.
Please remember to take home PE kits and check the lost property box for ‘missing’ items.
