We say goodbye to our class of 2021 with a MacDonalds treat.
This was after everyone else finished, unfortunately due to having to isolate for the last ten days they missed out on the opportunity to say goodbye to everyone. Luckily, Fr Andrew and some of the staff were able to come along as well, to say good bye and wish them well.
We are all so proud of how well they have coped and worked in this difficult year, great work and well done everyone!
All children received their awards on the last stay of term via a end of term, ‘Teams’ assembly and the we did it all over again, in ‘real life’.
Welcome from staff
Welcome to Year 6, the home of all things St Mary's. Mr. Mickleburgh and Mrs. Hallam are proud to welcome you all back as we've been battling Covid-19 as a nation.
One thing is clear is that we have a lot of work to catch-up but so far we've been really impressed by the attitude of all learners as they rediscover their potential.
We believe in our school's mission of 'We value all in the name Jesus the Christ'. This means we always give children the courage and belief to excel and be all that they can be.
Well done to all the Year 6 children who had their poetry published. Keep writing!

Curriculum Hola Mexico 1st Topic
We are currently learning about the topic 'Hola Mexico'. We are reading a class book called Holes. Please see below our knowledge organiser for this topic.
Stanley Yelnats, a boy who has bad luck due to a curse placed on his great- great-grandfather, is sent to Camp Green Lake, a juvenile detention camp, for a crime he did not commit. Stanley and the other boys at the camp are forced to dig large holes in the dirt every day. Stanley eventually realizes that they are digging these holes because the Warden is searching for something. As Stanley continues to dig holes and meet the other boys at the camp, the narrator intertwines three separate stories to reveal why Stanley's family has a curse and what the Warden is looking for.
A Child's War 2nd Topic
We are currently learning about the topic 'A Child's War'. We are reading a class book called Goodnight Mr. Tom. Please see below our knowledge organiser for this topic. There is also Chapter One of Goodnight Mr. Tom to read and wet your appetite.
We have Mr. Taylor every Friday afternoon teaching us how to read music on a basic level. He is a talented brass musician as you can see from the video below. Enjoy!
The last was performed by our very talented musician Mr. Taylor. Year 6 cannot wait to learn even more from him! :)
Goodnight Mr. Tom
Frozen Kingdoms 3rd Topic - Coming January 2021
We use White Rose and Power Maths to improve the attainment of our learners.
Learning your times tables is critical in any year group but especially in our final year. Please access your account from this link below.
We use Talk for Writing to embed stories inside our children's heads in the hope that they will develop a solid basis for future writing. It is a fully immersive programme that does deliver truly excellent results in both oral and written story-telling.
At Saint Mary's we follow the Come and See scheme. See the topic webs below to look at this term's topics and the links that can be made.
We use TPC Teach for improving children's mental health. It is vital after such a traumatic time, we have a programme dedicated to ensuring a positive outcome for all of the children. It helps e everyone to feel valued. Our mission statement "We value all in the name of Jesus the Christ" compliments our therapeutic classroom environments that are specially created for learning.
We are very lucky to have Grimsby Town F.C teach our P.E lessons.
They take place on Thursday and Friday afternoons alongside P.H.S.E so children can arrive in their P.E kit ready for their lesson. We have done this to ensure we waste no time so we can maximise participation.
Children are to wear dark track suits, white tee shirts, a dark school jumper or hooded top and trainers. No Lycra or football kit please.
Currently we are taking part in fitness challenges to ensure we improve our baseline fitness scores.
Term 2: This term we are doing Interpretive Dance - please watch the video below for a special treat.
