Thank you to M&M theatre productions who performed ‘Oliver Twist’ to KS1 and KS2. It was a great show full of superb acting, singing, laughter and audience participation.
Congratulations to all of our children who made their First Holy Communion this weekend. Didn’t they all look superb on the day? It was certainly a very special occasion for all involved. Thank you to all the helpers and volunteers who contributed to make the day such a memorable one!
The first chick has hatched! Our Reception children have been doing a fantastic job nurturing their chick eggs over the past few weeks. Now they are beginning to hatch and we expect further chicks to hatch today. Exciting times!
Thank you to author Paula Newman who visited our Year 4 children. She spoke about the skills needed to be a successful writer and shared some of her top writing tips with the children. Year 4H & 4W had a fabulous time and are already beginning to use Paula Newman’s top tips in their own writing!
A BIG Well Done to our Year 6 children who have completed their KS2 SAT’s this week. Well done also to all the staff and parents who have supported them on their Year 6 journey so far. All the children worked extremely hard all week and tried their very best. Everyone at St Mary Magdalen’s R.C Primary are extremely proud of you all. Enjoy your celebration party!
Our school kitchen garden is beginning to burst into life. With the help from some kind volunteers our children have begun planting a range of vegetables and fruit. The children and staff have discovered many interesting new facts about growing healthy food and realised that gardening is not just educational but fun too! Thank you to all parent helpers who have shared their skills during planting or donated resources to the school. We will keep posting regular updates on how the garden is growing.
Our Reception children are currently learning all about ‘Growing’. As part of their learning they are looking after a number of eggs in the hope that they will all hatch into lovely young chicks. They have learned that it is very important to keep the eggs warm and to turn them regularly, just as a mother hen would do. They hope that the first chick will hatch in approximately 21 days time.
There was a mysterious break-in at school! Someone had broken into our reception class and made a terrible mess! The police were called and the crime scene was made secure. Who did this terrible act? Our Reception children were determined to find out and they made sure all suspects were questioned and finger printed. Even the headteacher, Mr Duncan, couldn’t escape being interrogated. Finally the culprit was identified and it was no other than …….the big bad GIANT!
I would like to wish all of our pupils, staff and parents a happy and holy Easter. School will reopen after the Easter holiday on Monday 24th April.
Our ‘A’ team football squad did fantastically well in winning the Barry Sutherland Cup final. The final score was 2-0 to St Mary Magdalen’s after extra time. A big well done to our boys and team coach who have done us proud. The team are hoping to continue their success by winning the Bishop’s Cup and league.
