The Year 5 children have spent two days doing bikeability both in school and out on the roads of Denton. They have all really enjoyed the experience and their behaviour and manners were commented on positively by all the instructors.
The Year 5/6 team played valiantly but were ultimately knocked out of the Tameside Schools Cup against Dane Bank Primary School. After a very tight first half, St Mary's were unlucky to be 2-1 down. They continued to play well in the second half but Dane Bank were much more clinical. Credit must go to the team for keeping...
A huge well done to the mixed year 5/6 football team, who overcame Corrie Primary School in the first round of the Tameside Schools Football Tournament. Despite going behind early on, they came back strongly, eventually winning 4-2. All the players showed great team spirit and they should be proud of their efforts against a good team.
Members of Year 5 have begun uploading their work to their portfolio on Class Dojo for Mr Whittle to check, comment and feedback. They have been exceptionally busy with their home learning which is great to see. Cody has been busy with his maths and English and his Amazon research; Anna has been working hard on her grammar and...
The children and staff in school today took part in the TCSSA virtual netball competition by throwing socks into a basket from 2 metres away. The children showed great aim and technique to contribute towards a score of 216 in total. I'm not sure how much of a help the staff were though!

Therefore, in its place TCSSA have put together the Virtual Netball Competition. The rules of the competition are below. Please send in your results alongside pictures or...
