Parents Evening

Thank you to everyone who came to parents’ evening this week. We have enjoyed talking to you about your child’s learning.

Colleagues from Southwark Local Authority and the Southwark Diocesan Board of Education visited us this week and commented on: the great progress we are making in teaching and learning especially in writing; the wonderful support that our teaching assistants give to our children and the high focus given to high quality texts throughout the school.

I was extremely proud to show them around our school and thrilled that they noticed all of the good things happening at St Mary Magdalene School.

RE Week

Our week began with a visit from John Hardwick from Barnabus in Schools. He led an amazing collective worship to introduce our theme of “Who comes first?” He talked about how the Olympic and ParaOlympic values can inspire us all to be champions.

He also led workshops for each class to further develop these ideas. Throughout the week, children have learned about the lives of inspirational athletes and made links with stories in the bible. Look out for the RE week exhibition in the hall which will be on display at our parents’ evenings after half term.

Orange Class – Collective Worship

Orange Class offered a marvellous collective worship today as they discussed the word “Friends” and “Friendship”. They discussed how important being friendly to others and showing respect in friendship is. They also showed us how good their Spanish is as they translated the word “Friend” into Spanish, which is “Amigo”!

We took some pictures of the collective worship, which can be view via the gallery below. Please click on the thumbnails for a larger view.
