Y3 Stone Age Day

Last Friday our Y3 pupils were involved in a Stone Age Day in school.

They came in beautifully dressed in their costumes.  The teacher’s made great effort in their authentic outfits too. The day was spent with a visitor, who is a history expert and he helped the children to understand more about the Stone Age. Pupils experienced what it would have been like to live in those times.  They all had great fun and learned such a lot of interesting facts.

Thank you to Mrs Eaden and Mr Presland for their oganisation,  our parents for dressing their children so well and helping to make them feel part of this exciting day!

 

Harvest collection for ‘Spires’

This year our Year 1 children have been practicing their Harvest songs and have asked the whole school to bring in donations for the charity ‘Spires’,  who help hundreds of homeless and disadvantaged people all year round.  Each year group has been assigned different dried or tinned foods to bring along.

The representatives from Spires came today to collect your generous donations and were absolutely overwhelmed with the amount of food St Teresa’s had acquired.  They brought a large vehicle with them but still had to do two trips to get it all back to their premises.

We really appreciate this act of kindness, which permeates our core values of LOVE & TEAMWORK by helping those less fortunate then ourselves.  Thanking you all for your wonderful generosity!

 

Our NED Learning Mantra!

Lovely NED mugs!

Our learning mantra of Never give up, Encourage others and Do your best (NED) is fundamental to what we do in school and we celebrate special achievements in NED assembly once a week, where the winners were having a tea party with the Headteacher, getting hot chocolate and biscuit.  However, during the pandemic, we have had to give the children a little bag with an individual hot chocolate and a small treat, instead.    

We were humbled to receive a fine set of very special St Teresa’s NED mugs for our tea parties from Gracie, Giovanna and Manuela, who donated some of their birthday money to pay for them!  These will be used once again, as soon as we can resume the tea parties.

Acts of random kindness like these, are such a great feature of our school and the values we share.  I am sure that you will join me in thanking the family for their kindness and generosity.

 

SIMS Parent App – for all parents

All our information on pupils and parents is entered into our online system called SIMS, which is shared only with the London Borough of Merton.    Once the information is entered by the school,  it then becomes parents/carers responsibility to amend any details and update this system regularly.  Please do this if you have moved house, have a new phone number, your child has developed allergies or needs regular medication.  You are always welcome to tale to someone in the school office, if you have any questions or information.

If you do not  have the School Information Management System Parent App on your phone yet, please let the office know, either by phoning or emailing, so that we can send you an invitation.  You need to make sure this is updated each term, with your correct contact details and child’s information.  Even if there are no changes, please just confirm the details are still correct and submit the form again.  Thank you for your assistance.


   

Early Years Video

Mr Williams, a Teach Wimbledon trainee teacher in Year 4, has produced a short film that captures life in the Early Years at St Teresa’s!  I am delighted to say that Mr Williams achieved a 1st Class Honours University Degree in Film and Media before beginning his PGCE with us this term.
