On behalf of everyone here at St Mary and St Thomas Aquinas we would like to extend a huge warm welcome to all of our new Reception class and their families. We have created a video for you to watch showing you your new classroom and your teachers! We hope you all have a wonderful summer and we look forward to seeing you in September.
This week, we had a visit from some very speical guests which included Winnie, Willow, Wally and Mr Wilson. The children from all year groups were fascinated by these amazing and beautiful creatures. They were able to touch and stroke them, feeling how very soft their feathers were and some children were also even able to have a hold of them.
Today, was the big install of our brand new yard markings on the Key Stage 1 yard. The children were super excited to try them out over lunchtime and Recpetion were even able to use them during their PE lesson.
On Friday, as a whole school community we joined together to parade for Pentecost. We thought about the importance of the Holy Spirit and the birth of the Catholic Church. Each class left their offertory in our school Chapel. It was a wonderful celebration.
This week the children in Reception Class were very happy to meet some of our friends in Romanian partner school through a Google Meet. The children sang songs, chatted about family activities and traditions and even played a colour game! Reception look forward to chatting to their friends again next week.
