As usual we will be supporting Fairtrade Fortnight and after the success of the breakfasts in previous years we have decided to offer them again this year.
Pupils will be able to come into school and enjoy a breakfast before school – please book a breakfast by signing up on School’s Buddy or put you name down at the office – it is helpful for us to have a rough idea of numbers!
Reception and Key Stage 1 – Thursday 3rd March
Key Stage 2 – Friday 4th March
Arrive between 8 – 8.15am. (Minibus children come in when you arrive)
Cost £2.00 to include: FT Hot drink, FT juice, toast, FT jam/marmalade, FT banana – homemade FT breakfast bar.
PLEASE PAY ON THE DAY
NB: if you have children in both groups then they can come together on one of the days.
We will be holding parent information meetings for all classes in the school hall. These will give you an opportunity to hear from your child’s teacher about the curriculum expectations for the year from you child’s teacher. The talks will be held on the following dates:
A big thank you to all the staff and to the FoSM for making Bedtime Stories such an enjoyable evening for both the children and parents. The children were treated to stories and hot chocolate in their classrooms (teddies too!) whilst the parents listened to a talk about reading and vocabulary development and browsed the book fair in the hall. We are hoping that we will have made a good profit from the sale – we use all of the cash raised to replace books in the school library.
Thirty children from years 5 and 6 enjoyed joining together with a group of pupils from St Mark’s School for an afternoon of singing at St Mary’s Parish Church. David Fawcett led them through a singing workshop and the children then took part in a service of Compline which parents came to share.
What an amazing turn-out for the great St Mary’s Bake Off, with children from all classes frantically decorating cakes at playtime and lunch time. Congratulations to the organizers for their money-raising idea and to the proud winners. Many thanks to all who took part and those at home who supported them.
