On the 4th and 5th December, four budding journalists from St Mary's will be making their way to Manchester for the annual SSAT national conference. Focusing upon 'The Learner' in the 21st century, the conference will feature a range of experts and academics from across the globe presenting the latest thinking in education. The student team will be reporting back on their experiences but were tasked with producing blogs about themselves in advance of the event.

Year 7 Monsters

At the moment in year 7 English, we are looking at non-fiction writing through the topic of Monsters.

Students have described, designed and (as part of their home-learning), CREATED their monsters.

7W2 managed to bake six cakes, hand-sew a creation, design 3D posters, draw and make PowerPoints!

Big congratulations to all of those who received their well-earned Outstanding Home Learning Points for the great time and effort!

Miss Lovatt.
