Douglas Strickland Award Evening

Year 2 represented St Mary’s in style at the Douglas Strickland Bursary 30th anniversary awards evening on Tuesday. They recited a choral poem about Christopher Columbus  which they have been learning as part of their topic about Explorers.

We attended the evening to receive a donation from the bursary, with which we have purchased some class sets of books to support the teaching of reading across the school.

A huge thank you must be said to the bursary as we have received many generous donations over the years which we have used to buy a variety of resources to support the teaching of the arts across the school.

Year 2 visit Arne

Hot on the heels of the BBC, year 2 visited Arne for a day of investigating and learning in support of their topic, Birds. It wasn’t even spoiled by the rain. Half the school were busy getting rained on that day… year 4 at Brenscombe, year 2 at Arne and year 1 at Corfe Castle.
