Ash Wednesday

Class 1 at St. Margaret’s attended an Ash Wednesday service at St. Charles school. The children enjoyed receiving their Ashes and were very well behaved, we are very proud of them.

Forest schools

It was Class 1 Forest school this afternoon. We had snow, hot chocolate, pancakes and even toasted marshmallows. Lots of fun had by everyone.

Animal habitats

The children in Class 1 at St. Margaret’s have enjoyed learning about animal habitats and have used the small world areas to explore these.

Can I read you a story?

One of our reception children read The Gruffalo to the rest of her class this afternoon.  What a wonderful reading voice she has, all the children thoroughly enjoyed it.

The children have been told they can bring books in if they want to share them in class, so we look forward to more stories.

Jam Sandwiches!!

As part of their literacy learning this week, Class 1 made jam sandwiches this morning, they worked really hard and they look delicious. I wonder what they are learning about? We will find out later in the week!!

Mass at Immaculate Conception

The children from St. Margaret’s attended Mass this morning at the Church of Immaculate Conception, with Father Don. The children were fantastic and the Parishioners said how polite they were.  Father Don showed the children around the Church after Mass and they were rewarded with biscuits and orange juice by our old school secretary Mrs Clayton.

We are looking forward to Father Don coming into school to give a Mass for the children and to see our Church Family display.

Singing at Oakford Manor

Our choir have been singing at Oakford Manor this week. They sang beautifully and the residents enjoyed themselves and speaking to the children after. Well done everyone.


Wow,  well done to all the children for their wonderful Christmas plays. They sang beautifully and every word could be heard. You should all be very proud.


What a fantastic treat we had today.  All the children went to St. Margaret’s and enjoyed a pantomime from M and M Theatrical Productions.  They watched (and took part in) Pinocchio.  What a performance it was brilliant, thank you M and M!!

CMAT Feast Day

School was closed today so that all our staff and a Governor could attend the St. Ralph Sherwin Feast day with our colleagues from the other 23 schools in the CMAT. Our CEO gave an input, followed by Jacqueline Rodden who is a member of the Trust Board.

We then had a fantastic input from the main guest speaker David Wells which was funny, thought provoking and inspirational.

This afternoon we had an uplifting Mass.

What a great day and many thanks to those that did a tremendous job organising the event.
