Whole School Learning Challenge - What have you learnt to be grateful for?

Still image for this video
Out of the most challenging times comes the opportunity to be thankful for the small things in life. What things are your family THANKFUL for? We would love to hear about the small things that have made you grateful. We know that on some days you may be doing a lot of school work, but on others you may do less. If you only have time to do a small amount, then we ask that you escape inside a book and practice some mental maths, for example, quick fire adding and subtracting or times table practice.

Are you ready for your next BRILLIANT challenge?

Life has felt very serious lately! This has meant that for a lot of us, there have been times where we have felt less than BRILLIANT.

The teachers at St Mary's have worked together again to create a whole school challenge to help our community realise how BRILLIANT each and every one of you are!

But first... over the last two weeks, the staff were set BRILLIANT challenges to complete to create a new video to launch our new project. We hope that we are able to raise some smiles to make you start to feel a bit more BRILLIANT in readiness to start the new challenges.

What makes me BRILLIANT?

We've got a challenge for you...

The adults at St Mary's have been working together (remotely) on a secret mission to plan an exciting whole school challenge that you may like to join in with us to complete. Details will be shared on Monday 27th April, but in the meantime, see if you can work out our learning challenge question from the clues in this video...

What does it mean to be courageous?
