School News

We were delighted to receive £200 worth of book vouchers from the Yellow-Lighted Bookshop and their customers this week.

What a treat to see snow this morning.  The children were given slightly longer playtimes this morning so they could enjoy this rare event.

We are excited to share that we are putting plans forward for an After School Club onsite at St Marys. Our aim is to be up and running from September 2017. Watch this space for more details.

Last night, the girls football team headed to Cirencester to take part in a local football festival.

They played with great determintion and a real team spirit. The best news is...THEY WON!! Go the girls!

We are very proud of you for being so courageous at the festival. WELL DONE!

Children in KS2 were given the opportunity to play a new sport today – Fiitball.
Fiitball is an exciting new game developed by professional football coaches. It was originally used to improve movement and awareness and became a game in its own right with its own rules and goal unique to the game.
The game looks like a mix of football, netball, American football and basketball with two ways to score.
The children had a fantastic time and the following comments were made from children in Elm Class:


“It was brilliant! It keeps you running around.” Aydin


“I scored! Can we play it as an afterschool club? It really improves your netball and football skills.” Emily


“It was fun!” Niamh


“It improved my coordination skills.” Lucy

I feel thankful to be alive.

I gently sway as the blackbirds sing.

The autumn leaves collapsing to the floor.

I can see the toad like frogs jumping

in the pond one by one.

I can feel the cold breeze blowing across my face,

I feel thankful to be alive.

 

Petrified with despair.

The thick smoke blinding my sight.

As the venomous gas poisons me.

The soilders bloodshod as they trample past me.

I can see the grenades whizzing over me.

I can feel sadness in the air.

Petrified with despair.

Today, the EYFS and KS1 children got the opportunity to see a real tractor and sit in the driving seat! It wasn't just the children who had a great time...all of the teachers had a sneaky drive of the tractor too!

Full marks to Mr Knight for organising this wonderful opportunity that supported our learning about farming.

On the 12th October 2017, 9:30am - 11:30am we will be having our Open Morning where you and your child will be able to see the school in action and meet the Early Years staff and the Head Teacher. We look forward to meeting you.

Yesterday saw our EYFS and KS1 children taking part in the annual competitive Sports Day. The rain held off and the children demonstrated drive and determination on the track. The children took part in the relay race, egg and spoon race, sack race and the sprint. We were so proud of all of our children who did so well. Everyone definitely earned an ice pop at the end of the morning!

Thanks to the pre school children who came along and raced brilliantly! We have some budding athletes joining us in September!

Again, our parents did us proud and the children cheered wildly as the mums and dads raced for the finish line in the sprint and the three legged race.

Even the teachers joined in the fun with a three legged race. Miss Jackson was determined that she would gain first place over last years champion, Mr Hainsworth. With the support of Mrs Peacock, great drive and passion were shown on their faces as they steamed ahead, overtaking the other teachers from a very early point on the track!

All in all, a very happy and successful day!
