Cinderella

M and M Theatrical Productions bought Cinderella to St Mary's for the whole school to watch. The children were enthralled by the performance. Mr Marples was able to join us and thoroughly enjoyed it too!
School Values
 
In February, Reverend Parsons came in to school to share an assembly linked to our Christian value of hope.  The children really enjoyed how he used props such as a blindfold to make the story come alive.
 
Explorer Dome
 
We were very lucky to have a visit from the Explorer Dome and their mobile planetarium in January.  The Friends of St Mary's kindly funded this experience for the whole school.  Mrs Birchall and Mrs Smith-Walker were able to come in and enjoy it with us.
Harvest Festival
 
Mr Dean watched both the practice and main performance for our Harvest Festival in the church.  He decorated the church with our rainbow bunting and was so impressed with Year 1's signing he applauded in sign too!  Reverend Parsons also joined us and gave the blessing.
Reverend Parsons visited the school to lead our whole school worship. His assembly focused on love. It explained there are different types of love and how we can learn to love new people and things.
Phonics Evening
 
Mrs Trethewey attended our Phonics Evening run by Miss Rundle and Miss Shelton.  They showed videos of their own phonics lessons and explained how we teach reading in school.  The event was a huge success and enjoyed by both Mrs Trethewey and parents.
Greenhouse Construction
 
This term Mr Robinson has been visiting school to build our new greenhouse with some Year 6 children.
Mrs Trethewey joined our Year R and Year 1 class for their fantastic Roald Dahl  Day.  She joined the children playing in the BFG's Dream Kitchen and enjoyed bubble painting.
Last years Governor visits:

Mrs Birchall attended our annual Summer Fayre. Once again it was a huge success raising funds for our school. Thank you to all the parents and staff that attended and help to organise such an important event.
 
Bookworm Bookcamp
 
Mr Robinson accompanied year four on their 'Bookworm Bookcamp' visit to Waterstones. Children could choose their own book to take home. We then all visited Costa to enjoy a babychino while reading the first chapter of our books.
Both Mr Robinson and Mrs Trethewey attended our 'Teddies Bears' picnic' that welcomed our new reception class and their parents to our school before their start in September.
Mr Robinson has been supporting both Year 4 and Year 6 on their residential camps both at Porthpean Outdoor Adventure Centre.  He took part in activities such as canoeing, sailing, climbing, problem solving and mountain biking.
