End of the year!

Wow, what a fantastic year at St. Marys we have had.

From exploring Battlefield 1403, to serving up our very own French Cafe, to making our own Canopic jars… there’s been laughter, tears and some scrapes along the way!

I’m very sad to be saying goodbye to lots of lovely faces. Each and every one of you have brought joy to St. Marys and I wish all children nothing but the best as they move up the school.

I hope you all have a fun-filled summer and have a much needed rest. We’ve worked very hard this year, you all deserve it!

Thank you for all the lovely presents, too.

Best wishes,

Miss. Parker 🙂

Class party

Hello all,

On Wednesday afternoon we will be having an end of year party!

If your child wants to bring in snacks to share, we would like them to be pre-packaged please and we will put them on a snack table. I will provide squash for the children. No fizzy drinks, please! 🙂 The children can wear PE kits.

Thank you,
Miss. Parker and Mrs. Willoughby

Weekly update

Wow, what fantastic weather to end the week!

As we all know, we had a wonderful trip on Tuesday to Battlefield 1403 where we got to do lots of fun activities. We made some cool mini long bows outside and practised our arrow shooting, maybe broke a couple along the way! We learned lots of new and interesting facts in the visitor centre about King Henry IV and Henry Percy (or Harry Hotspur for the historians out there!). We also visited the church and marvelled at the ages of the graves out there. It was a beautifully hot day but it was fabulous to see how many children were wearing sunhats and sun-cream.

In maths this week, we have begun to look at money and I’m super impressed by the knowledge we already have! We will be sitting our summer assessments in all subjects next week so any last-minute revision is welcomed.

We have also begun using and learning our recorders this week and I can confidently say we all can play the B note! Hurrah! The children are aware but I am happy for them to take them home as long as they are brought back into school each day; please be mindful that if they are not in school when we have a music lesson, your child will have to clap along to the tune instead of playing.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and enjoy the sunshine while it lasts!

Best wishes,
Miss. Parker 🙂


Quick update

Hi all,

My apologies for the lack of homework on the first week back; I was unfortunately out of school this week due to illness. Homework will resume Friday.

I hope we’re all excited for the trip on Tuesday! Mrs. Willoughby and I are looking forward to our trip around Battlefield with class 6 and 7. If you have any questions or queries before Tuesday please do ask myself, Mrs. Willoughby or at the office.

Many thanks,

Miss. Parker

Weekly update

A big well done to class 7 this week. It’s been a tough one tip-toeing around school and making sure we’re sensible for the year 6s doing the SATS! Everyone deserves a big pat on the back.

I’m sure you all have received the French Café letters that is set to take place at the end of term, we’re all super excited about it. In fact, this week, we’ve been practising our French ready. To all the children who came up to me at the end of the day to show me how much French they remembered, a big high five! Please ensure they are brought into class/the office ASAP so seats can be allocated.

In maths this week, our lovely year 4s have taken their first official multiplication practise check! Although I think our nerves got the better of us sometimes, we did really well for a first go. We will practise as much as possible in school but please make sure we are practising at home too, without counting the times-tables on our fingers! Other than that, in year 4, we are coming along leaps and bounds with our decimals work.

This week in science, we learned about the lightbulb and who really invented it. We had a lovely debate about who should actually get the credit for its invention, and then designed our very own classroom with a twist… Lightbulbs had never been invented. Well done, class 7.

Unfortunately, this week, our cricket coach cancelled on us due to the rain (but will owe us an extra session in future) so we had a fun impromptu PE lessons with lots of active games and it was the perfect opportunity to break out the parachute! So, it was all okay in the end.

Finally, in our topic work, we virtually explored the tiny island of Mont Saint-Michel and used our compasses to identify directions.

There will not be homework this week until Monday, but children will have an extra day to hand it in. It will be due in on Friday.

Here’s to another fun week next week,
Miss. Parker 🙂
