Recent news and updates from St Mary’s School Norwood Green.
Through our work with the FSSP, we were invited to take part in a new age kurling tournament at Villiers High School yesterday. Teams from Y3 and Y4 represented the school and despite being complete novices acquitted themselves very well.
The Y3 team were third overall, whilst the Y4 team won their group. The medals were presented this morning in assembly by Mr Doyle and Mrs Mutch. Congratulations to all who took part.
We will be given a new age kurling kit for use in school, so everyone in KS2 will have an opportunity to try this out for themselves.
The school will be open today as usual
The children all enjoyed their festive lunch today. The chocolate yule log was a particular favourite!
We are delighted to have raised £115.33 for the Save the Children Christmas Jumper day.
The children decorated their own Christmas T-Shirts during special art classes and wore them during the day.
Please be advised that, at long last, the automatic door at the main entrance is working!

To prepare for this special assembly, during the week, all classes have been working on a class art presentation. This was a montage of the symbols associated with Remembrance Day, or the written word.
As well as listening to poems and prayers written by the children, we observed 2 minutes silence.
Here are some examples of our beautiful work.
