SMAT Football 2018

A wonderful afternoon was enjoyed by two of our Football Teams at Barnsley FC’s Oakwell Stadium as we attended the St. Mary’s Academy Trust Football Competition 2018. Congratulations to Darton Primary for their win in the Years 5/6 Boys Tournament. Our team came a very respectable third place and had a very uniform record of 2 wins, 2 draws and 2 defeats. The Year 3/4 Girls Team were also terrific. Playing as a team for the first time they finished fourth, a tremendous effort. Many thanks to St. Mary’s Academy Trust for making the afternoon possible, it was a wonderful opportunity for our children to enjoy such a fabulous facility. The supporting friends and family were brilliant as always. To crown the afternoon’s events, our girls won the Team Spirit Award for their tremendous sense of fair play and commitment to the West Meadows badge! A really wonderful afternoon, well done to everyone. A special thank you to Mr. Mitchell and Miss Grange for their coaching abilities too.

EYFS Scrapbook Magic

Wow! This young man was given a challenge – ‘Make a scrapbook all about you!’ We couldn’t wait to show his efforts. The pencil that he used for his writing has been scanned so that it is visible, it has changed his pictures slightly in terms of colour. The writing and then reading is of a tremendous standard. Really well done, challenge accepted, challenge met! What could be next we wonder?

Yorkshire Yorkshire Yorkshire

Year 2 have been preparing for our Tour de Yorkshire celebrations with the Tidy Team. They have begun to ‘Yarn Bomb’ a bike! I checked this term and even though it sounded quite scare, it means to cover an object or structure in a public place with decorative knitted or crocheted material, as a form of street art! We think that our results are amazing and we can’t wait to share our final efforts. Enormous thanks to Hazel and the Tidy Team, we love working with you as special friends and members of our #WonderfulCommunity
