Congratulations to all the St Mary’s children who competed so successfully in the Purbeck Cross-Country Running Competition.
Well done to all the members of our successful hockey and tag rugby teams.
Once again, years 3 & 4 were lucky enough to spend a morning on the bird boat, cruising a very still Poole Harbour. The trip was organized through Birds of Poole Harbour, who pay for everything and provide binoculars and expert guides/birders.
Here is a list of what we saw:
- little egret
- great crested grebe
- red-breasted merganser
- golden eye
- bar-tailed godwit
- and 2 seals
Congratulations to all our athletes – the winning team in heat 1 of the Purbeck Indoor Athletics competition.
Year 4 will be taking part in the world’s biggest coffee morning, in support of Macmillan Cancer Support, on Tuesday 11 October from 9 – 10am in the school hall. We would welcome donations of cakes, labelled and delivered to the school hall on the morning of 11 October!
There will be tea and coffee available for a donation towards the charity, along with a variety of games and a raffle that year 4 will be organising. It would be lovely to see as many of you as possible, and it will give you the chance to have a natter with friends.
We thought that children in Key Stage 2 (years 3-6) might like the opportunity to buy a cake at break time. They will be able to do this with their class teacher, if they bring in some change for the charity. Cakes will range from 30p – £1.
Year 4 look forward to seeing you!
Year 4 enjoyed an exciting three days at Brenscombe Outdoor Centre, including bushcraft, a campfire, kayaking, raft building and a long walk!
