Scarlett I can not belive that we only have 2 weeks of school left, it has gone so fast!


Scarlett I can not belive that today was our last walk with. Can you?

Lottie Hi guys I have been looking on the website to see if I can find the songs for homework but can't seem to find it. Does anyone know where to find them?????

Scarlett I love the play Sakespeare Rocks already and the songs are so catchy- my best is no girls aloud.

Krish Yep the water was like an ice cube what im mostly asking where would you find the songs.

Scarlett I did enjoy swimming but at first I felt like an ice cube! I had a good day but swimming was FREEZING!

finnley guess who back back again

Krish It was really fun on mayday, but anyways I got a question for the school will the school mayday be on the school website?

jannet hi eagles i hope your weekend are going well i cant wait for the cricket at Bodicote

Ayden So glad SATs are over! It wasn't as stressful as I thought it would be though thank you Mrs Smith for letting us have a longer break today

Daniel M Sats week has been really good so far. Only maths tests to go!

Mrs Smith Hi Eagles
I hope you are enjoying the Easter break.
When we return, we are going to spend the first week back focusing on instructions. You will have the opportunity to write your own set of instructions for something of your choice. It would be great if you could start thinking about what you could write about and perhaps come in with some notes that you could use to help you. You could choose one of the following if you are stuck for ideas:
- How to score the perfect goal
- How to make slime
- How to bake perfect cupcakes

ruby mrs smith - yes I have been wanting to be successful this term. Im glad I earnt it. The things that make me happy are my family and school im so grateful to have them both.


janneth hi guys i hope everyone has started there easter break happily because i know i have

Mrs Smith Well done Ruby - correct the second time.
I just wanted to say a huge well done for all the effort that went into making this term so successful. You have worked extremely hard and I am proud of you. I am looking forward to sharing some of that work with the school and with your parents tomorrow afternoon.

ruby sorry mrs smith I ment the answer is 792.98 I did it again and got this answer I think it is right
ruby mrs smith - no because the answer is 794.9 and because what he worked out is larger than the number than from the start

Mrs Smith Ruby - Sam thinks the answer is 79,289. Is he right? Why?

Thanks for a brilliant week Eagles. We have all worked incredibly hard on our myths! We had a fab expo and I am looking forward to Art Day on Monday. We also have our worship on Friday 5th!

ruby who can work out 62% of 1279

ruby mrs smith - I thought that the dances are well thought out, I also think that me and my group did the movement very well and I need to work on expression

Mrs Smith I am glad you enjoyed it Daniel. It was great to see everyone really listening and getting involved in each of the activities.
Ruby - what did you think of the dances? What did you do well? What do you think you need to work on for next time?

Mrs Smith Thank you Eagles for a thoroughly enjoyable last few weeks. I am looking forward to yet another busy but exciting one before the half term break. Remember that we have the expo on Monday and we are all dressing up in circus costumes to celebrate the end of our topic. To get you ready for Monday morning's activity, take a look at this website:
Mrs Smith Well what a week! So many exciting things going on at St Mary's. I had a great first week with Eagles and I enjoyed starting our circus topic with an engaging circus skills workshop. It was brilliant to see all of you challenging yourselves and trying new things - the huge grins on your faces was proof you all enjoyed it.
Next week we begin our discussion text in English and we will also continue our electricity topic. On top of that, we have mosaic man Dave in with us to create some of our designs. Keep looking out for photos!

We then visited the National Memorial Arboretum to learn about remembrance.
Big well done to Scarlett who earned her 25 metres for swimming.

Mrs Smith Another brilliant busy week in Owls class. We packed so much in and everyone worked hard to finish off our Defenders of the Faith topic and what a topic it's been!

Mr Smith is now editing it ready for the big reveal during our expo on Wednesday 10th October - we are really looking forward to seeing you there.
On Monday, we begin our Fallen Fields topic with a visit from a re-enactment company as well as looking forward to our visit on Thursday. We will also start watching War Horse this week but if you can't wait, take a look at this video which shows you how the puppets from the show work:
