St Mary's CE Primary School will be participating in the Street Tag Oxfordshire Schools Games Season 2!
Street Tag is a great way to get out of the house for your daily exercise. It turns streets and green spaces into a virtual playground, to increase families' outdoor experience in walking, running and cycling more to earn points and rewards.
Welcome to Owl class!
By Joshua Lucas and Chloe
We are the optimistic owls and in our final year at St Mary's.
We love our class community and everyone in it.
We are all independent learners and enjoy all of our class subjects.
We look forward to seeing each other every morning and we always help each other when anything goes downhill.
We are all wonderful friends to each other and enjoy each other’s company.
We are the awesome owls.
Lightning Mary tells the true story of Mary Anning, a Victorian palaentologist whose discoveries of the ichthyosaur (followed by a plesiosaur and pterosaur) contributed to changes in scientific thinking about the history of the earth. Mary’s story of eventual triumph over adversity is told expertly by Simmons, who doesn’t stint in reminding us just how hard life was for the young Mary. Simmons shows us the challenges of class, poverty and the expectations of women that Mary was subject to, but also how her passion, hard work and stubbornness helped her transcend those considerable restrictions. A brilliant read.
