Wednesday 12 December saw St. Mary’s stage two performances of the Hoity-Toity Angel in St Mary the Virgin Church. The church was packed with families and friends joining us to celebrate our Nativity. The performance was wonderful!
On Thursday, Year 1 met lots of exotic animals during their visit from Amate Animalia. The visit helped to enrich the children’s learning and was part of the introduction to their new topic ‘Paws, claws and Whiskers’.
As part of their learning today, Year 1 zoomed off into a black hole! Opportunites to travel across galaxies are rare but here at St Mary's we decided to blow the school budget, complete a risk assessment to end all risk assessments and fund a trip into outer space (well, not quite, but we did organise a visit to a mobile planetarium!).
We were delighted that the first phase of our playground was ready for the children to enjoy on the first day back to school after Easter. The glorious sunshine has meant it has been perfect for the children to try out the trim trail and climb-in sandpit.
We had a very special visitor in our assembly today, Robert Courts MP. Other visitors including Anne Davey from the Oxford Diocesan Schools Trust (ODST) and some governors joined us to hear all about what an MP does.
