On Friday 5th October we all dressed in our brightest clothes and had a joyful Harvest Mass, thanking God for all the gifts he gives us and thinking about how we can share our gifts with others. As a result of this event we raised £233.93 for CAFOD. On the 12th of October we were visited by Clare from CAFOD. Our Mini Vinnie team were able to present her with a cheque to support the work that CAFOD do. Clare shared with the whole school some of work that CAFOD do on our behalf and how our money would help people all over the world.
On Friday 13th of July the whole school took part in two performances, showcasing our performing talents. It was a chance for each class to share some of the musical learning that they had been engaged in over the term. Alongside this some of our year 4 pupils had written a very persuasive letter to Mrs Long to allow them to hold a talent show. Their successful persuasion, resulted in the second part of the show where winners from each class got to perform on stage. The event culminated with all the children returning to the stage to sing together a song from “The Greatest Showman”
Here are some photographs of the Talent Show
For more photographs of the event see the class pages of this website.
On Monday the 9th of July St Mary and St Peter Mini Vinnies traveled to Lowestoft to join other Mini Vinnies from our Catholic Multi Academy Trust to share a retreat for the day. We were joined by the Ignite team and Father Luke. We started the morning thinking about our mission as Mini Vinnies and had a short time of Worship. We then made our way down to the beach. We were given the task of building a sand Cathedral. We were all mixed up so that we got the chance to work with children from the other school. After lunch, we had some free time before a short walk to St Nicholas Church for a contemplative Mass
On the 25th of May the children of Year Three traveled to the National shrine at Walsingham to celebrate Mass with other children from our Catholic Multi Academy Trust. They experienced a little of what it is like to go on a Pilgrimage.
On Friday 18th of May Year 4 visited St Francis School in Norwich to join in a MAT event of workshops and celebrations on the theme of Pentecost. Here is some of the learning that we took part in:
This came through the post this week to say thank you for the money we raised for the charity “Break”
This Morning we officially opened our new EYFS outdoor learning area. It was combined with a stay and play for the Nursery and Reception children and parents. We had a wonderful, if rather cold, morning exploring the new area together. This new area will really support the learning and development of our youngest members of our school community.
We work very closely with local authority services and other agencies to help ensure we get the best for our children. Please take a few moments to watch this short video clip that explains how the agencies and services work together to protect and safeguard children’s welfare and wellbeing.

Good morning everyone and welcome back to school this week.
It’s been a much longer weekend than usual thanks to the Siberian weather front that visited us last week – wasn’t it cold! It’s still a bit chilly so remember those warm coats, hats, gloves and scarves.
This week we are looking forward to really going the extra mile in our learning this week so that we can enjoy more of our Science and Art – living creatures studies. It’s going to be an awesome week, one full of SMSP Greatness! Mrs Long will be visiting each class seeking out some super examples for our Greatness Gallery – will it be your great learning being showcased this week?
