Mitcham Firefighters visit to see Y2

Year 2 are currently studying the topic of ‘The Great Fire of London’.  A visit was organised  from Mitcham Firefighters to help spark their learning about modern fire fighting equipment and comparing it to fire fighting equipment from 1666.    As you can see from the photos below – the children found it very interesting and were fascinated by the clothing the Firefighters have to wear to protect themselves.  they also learnded about the different tasks they have to deal with, other than fires!  The children really enjoyed seeing the fire engine so close up and seeing the power of the water hose.  This was great experience for all involved.

Carnival Day – Monday 4th October 2021


What a fantastic day we had on Monday this week celebrating ‘Black History Month’!  Firstly the weather was in our favour and the sun shone brightly.  The carnival costumes were so colourful and absolutely amazing – the hard work parents and staff went to, to make this occasion so vibrant and fun for everone, was second to none!

We were delighted to have a steel band in school, who played for us outside, sharing their lovely music. Following this, children were able to take part in steel drum workshops and try these instruments out for themselves.  They had great fun and the day went really well.


Last week, St. Teresa’s celebrated STEM week in style and the children had a fantastic week. Central to our theme was celebrating diversity in science, technology, engineering and mathematics careers, and four role models were chosen to really inspire the children. That spotlight was given to Hayat Sindi, Katherine Johnson, Maya Lim and Annie Easley, who are truly extraordinary figures in their fields and a real inspiration.


Throughout the week, the children learnt about these figures whilst also carrying out a huge variety of fun activities in Science, Design and Technology, Computing and Mathematics. It was wonderful to see so many children present their ideas and experiments so confidently at the annual Science Fair as well as amazing ingenuity, problem-solving skills, teamwork and resilience shown across such a wide variety of activities. 


Over the last year, more than ever, we have seen how incredibly important the members of the STEM community are to the world and how much we all owe them. STEM week was a great way to celebrate their amazing work and encourage the children to go and change the world for the better.​

Year 3’s Roman Day

It seems a while ago now but Year 3 enjoyed a great day learning about Romans and dressing up in their wonderful outfits!  The photos below give a great example of how involved they were and the benefits of their experience!  Dressing the part always helps to give them that extra bit of enthusiasm plus having a visitor to the school to enlarge on their topic.  We wanted to share some of their beautiful photos with you.

Catholic Children’s Society Lenten Collection

Kaira, Annabel and Syena have shown exceptional dedication, teamwork and love by giving up lots of their lunchtimes to count the money we collected for the CCS during Lent and I’m delighted to say that we’ve raised £423.08!

Following our Lenten Collection for the Catholic Children’s Society, we are pleased to be able to show you the photo here of their representative Katie, receiving the money from our Faith in Action Group.  The school also received a lovely thank you video from the Catholic Children’s Society too.

The ‘Teresa Times’

Dear Parents,

Please follow the link below to see a copy of the latest edition of the ‘Teresa Times’ – our very own newspaper written and edited by children in school.

The current edition is packed full of information that will educate, challenge and inspire us!

Please feel free to share the newspaper far and wide.  We are just about to begin some exciting work to develop this kind of media with a school in Singapore and look forward to bringing you more news about this in the coming months!

Teresa Times

Happy reading.
