Mr D making sure Miss Maltby gets a soaking!

Today we enjoyed a beautiful and dry afternoon of sports on The Croft. Mr D organised a whole day of activities which tested everyone’s physical skills, team work and resilience, while ensuring everyone had lots of fun! In the afternoon families joined us to watch and join in the fun.


This year a large number of visitors joined in the Adults Races. We saw some fierce determination, beautiful teamwork and a few pulled muscles!

The Staff Race

The afternoon finished up with  Y6’s annual Race For The Train Race where Y6 pupils pull on funny clothes, eventually getting to their suitcase which they pull along behind then while they race over the line.


After Sports Day was over our amazing PTFA organised a BBQ, Bottle Tombola, Tug Of War and lots more fun. Thank you to all the St Mary’s families who stayed

A huge thank you to Mr D for organising such a fantastic day. Thank you also to all the support and teaching team who did so much to prepare the children and make sure they had a wonderful day. Thank you everyone.
