Welcome Everyone to St Mary's Church of England (Aided) Primary School
Happy New Year to all our school community. I hope that 2018 proves to be a happy and healthy one for you all.
There is much to look forward to between now and Easter.
Mr Thorne and Ms Smales will be continuing with their range of quality after school sports clubs for which there is no charge, thus enabling participation for all. Children will also be involved in the Chipping Norton Partnership swimming gala; netball tournaments; dance festival and "Schoolympics". Results will be reported through our newsletters.
One of the highlights of this term is the Year 5 participation in the Partnership Music Festival. This is always a welcome addition to the locally renowned performances of our Singing Club here at St Mary's. Individuals, classes and groups will be performing at the Chipping Norton Music Festival.
Annually, we recognise and celebrate World Book Day and the school will be transformed with characters from a range of children's books on Thursday 1 March 2018.
During our International Arts weeks children will learn about 10 different countries, their cultures and customs. We will explore these through art, research, music, dance and cookery. Many of our geographical skills sill also be practised during these two weeks. A colourful International Arts display will be the culmination of each child's hard work and parents will be invited to view the displays and food tasting experiences.
We hope you are looking forward to the term as much as we are.
Mrs Yvonne Stallwood-Barnes (Headteacher)
