Year 6 Visit Fort Henry

As part of their WW2 topic, year 6 visited Fort Henry to find out the important part Studland played during the Second World War.  We were pleased to welcome Chris Copson from the Keep Museum who gave us a guided tour and then shared a range of artefacts with us.

British Restaurant

The evacuees form Year 6 arrived safely at Swanage Railway Station.  They then enjoyed hospitality at the British Restaurant that re-opened (for one day only) at Swanage United Reformed Church.  Whilst they were there they enjoyed a lunch of baked beans, mash and corned beef rissoles followed by jam tart and custard!   Music was provided by Spike’s gramophone. They were joined for lunch by some visitors who shared their wartime memories of Swanage.  The day finished with a good old sing song!

Many thanks  to the URC for hosting the event.

Year 6 Carol Concert

On a very cold evening, our year 6 children, the school choir and instrumentalists, the Purbeck Arts Choir and a full congregation in excellent voice joined for a joyous celebration of the Christmas story.

Goodbye Year 6!

We wish you all the very best St Mary’s luck in your futures. You have been a brilliant class and we will miss you. Onwards and upwards!

Year 6 visit Arne

Another great trip to the RSPB reserve at Arne, this time for year 6. They enjoyed walking the nature trail to the harbour edge, and clambering around the adventure trail.

Girls Cricket Success

Congratulations to the Year 6 girls cricket team who won the Purbeck tournament securing them a place in the Dorset finals! The whole team demonstrated excellent batting, bowling and fielding skills leading them to win each of their games. Good luck in the final!
