Well done everyone!
Everyone in St Andrew’s House enjoyed their rewards for collecting the most house points last term. They enjoyed wearing blue, yummy treats and the playground to themselves for extra break time. House Captain Jake even made it back from illness today to lead his team in their celebrations. Thank you blue team for your impeccable manners today too.
Happy New Year 2022
We hope you have all had a lovely break and are now ready for the new term and the exciting learning journey ahead. Well done to everyone who arrived READY & RESPECTFUL on our first day back. It is going to be another amazing term by the look of it.
Lots of schools are wearing Christmas Jumpers today to raise money for Save the Children. But how many school children did a full Wake Up Shake Up workout at 8.30am wearing their jumpers? Only @ St Teresa’s! Well done everyone and thanks for all the charity donations. Remember Wake Up Shake Up runs every Friday from 8.30am, come along, be active to some awesome tunes and start the day the healthy way. #StTeresasproud.
We started Advent in school today with a beautiful Advent Mass. We welcomed Fr Pawel and Y6 led the Mass reverently. As well as enjoying working together to make snow people on our field, we also took time to change our class prayer areas to show: purple, Advent, preparing, hope and joy.
Well done to all our pupils who have worked so hard this week! Today we focused our certificates around Anti-Bullying and celebrated pupil’s acts of kindness that they have done this week.

Pupils at the Polling Station
Our Day in Paris!
Passport ready, we all took off (virtually) for Paris on Thursday. Children enjoyed having their passport stamped for different opportunities to learn about the Capital city, improve their French, study the artist Claude Monet and much more. They also visited a French café where they were able to sample a range of French foods. Throughout the day, pupils read French books and took part in a whole school art project based on ‘Water Garden’ by Monet. At lunch time we even held our very own Tour de France cycle event! Well done to the Bikability pupils in Year 4 and Year 5 who took part!
Maths on the Move
Pupils in Year 3, 4 and 5 have been participating in a fun and exciting maths programme called ‘Maths on the Move’ which is delivered by RB Gym & Sport. This is a unique and innovative programme that uses the concept of physically active learning to enhance children’s confidence and attainment in maths. The programme covers all learning outcomes of the maths curriculum for KS2.
Pupils are actively engaged in the sessions and look forward to the challenges each week.
