NUMBER OF THE DAY

HELLO YELLOW

As our pupils’ well-being is so important to us at St. Mary’s, we were delighted to be able to take part in this year’s Hello Yellow event run by Young Minds, the UK’s leading charity promoting young people’s mental health. It was great to see our usual blue school turn yellow for the day. All of the money raised was sent to the charity to help them to continue their important work. Thank you to all of the parents of the Year Three Bees who were able to support this event.

BLACK HISTORY MONTH

During Black History Month, we learnt about Rosa Parks and discussed how her actions had a positive impact on the world. We reflected on how Rosa’s bravery in choosing to speak up and to fight against what she knew was wrong and unjust made changes in her town, throughout her country and indeed across the whole world. In the Year Three Bees, we believe that everybody has the right to be treated equally and fairly.

In English, we have been writing diary entries and so we decided to imagine that we were on that same bus in Montgomery, Alabama on that day in December 1955 and write our own accounts of the events that unfolded and our feelings about what we saw. Click on the link below to read extracts from some of them.

THE NEW NORMAL

We discussed how we coped with adapting to the new routines after so much time spent doing home schooling during lockdown. Everybody in the Year Three Bees settled in quickly and have been doing some brilliant learning, seeming happy just to be back at school and with all of their friends again.

Let’s hear from a couple of them…

Annabel said, “School is different this year but, in these Covid times, we have to agree it’s better than being stuck at home all day. Assemblies don’t take place in the hall because of the children behind you breathing and giving out germs. We have different playtimes so you don’t get to see your brother or sister but it’s ok because you’ve got your BFF to play with. It felt so long since we saw our friends during lockdown. It’s been fun being back at school.”

Ava said, “In school, things are different. We have to stay in our bubble. The things that I am enjoying about being at school is that I get to see my friends a lot more. Everything gets sanitised. We have our own kit like pencils, glue, ruler, pencil sharpener and scissors. We also keep to the left in the corridors.”
