Summer Term 

Mid-way through our Summer Term and it is wonderful to be able to reflect on the excellent developments we have had throughout school. All of our staff and children are working incredibly hard with our school aims ahead of us. Here are some pictures of some of the excellent things that have been happening over the past few weeks. 

In April we had a wonderful opportunity to celebrate our British Values and think about Queen and Country as we all celebrated our Queen’s Birthday. Our children had a wonderful day and did a brilliant job of singing the National Anthem! 

Our children have been representing us in many different ways but here is a photograph we are very proud of : our recent trip to Leeds Cathedral. 

We have also had other events such as our Y5/6 Sleepover, trips, our May is the month of Mary celebrations, both our First Holy Communions and the Parties for Children and Parents – it has been a busy time. 

As June and July beckon we will be welcoming our new starters and preparing to say goodbye to our Year Sixes who have worked very hard and made us very proud.

Writing Week 2016 

We have got everything happening at Rothwell St. Marys’s next week – from the Coastline to the Wild West. Writing week begins on Monday and all of our children will be motivated, supported and eager to learn! 

Spring Term 

Spring is just around the corner and everybody is working incredibly hard. Have a look at the class pages to see what is happening in each area of our school. Here are a few pictures which showcase some of the best bits over the past few months! 

Autumn Half Term

School is in full swing and over the course of the past eight weeks there has been an abundance of excitement and engagement as children have settled into new classes with new challenges to help them grow.

This theme of growth lead us perfectly up to our Harvest Festival (Friday 23rd October) when children in Key Stage One kindly brought in gifts of food to share with the elderly people of Mulgrave House. As a generous act KS2 children brought in money that we will donate as a school to CAFOD, a charity we frequently wotk with.

As a school we are always thinking of others and Year Six has recently completed a very topical unit of work within RE that they wanted to shared with everybody. It offers us a chance to pause and reflect…and to appreciate the wisdom of some of the young minds within our school.

Another area of growth throughout school has been the hard work we have seen from our Class Govenors who have been visiting their class this half term. There has been lots of rather technical questions for our Class Governors to answer but the children have loved making this new link and having a recognisable face in school.

As usual there has been a great deal of excitement through school. Our first edition of The Saint Mary’s Times has been released to children in Key Stage Two, there have been trips to places like the National Railway Museum & Singing at Mount St. Mary’s, Year Two transformed into Pirates for a Day, Bikability cycled, we had an enormous Bake Sale to raise funds for MacMillan Coffee Morning and there have been numerous sporting events and competitions organised by Mr Glennon & Mrs Youhill. Miss Leonard released her twelve ‘Always’ children throughout the school who she has personally invited for take-away pizzas, Father Martin was welcomed with open arms and our new Reception children are being very well looked after by their Buddies as they settle into school. It has been a great half term captured in a few pictures below. Make sure you have a look at your class pages to find out more.
