St Mary’s hosts another Festival of Learning for local primary children

We welcomed 58 Year 5s from Bonneygrove Primary School to a morning of discovery this week with our Festival of Learning hosted by the History, Geography, RS and PSHE departments.

The children, accompanied by six Bonneygrove staff, enjoyed the 10-minute walk to St Mary’s from their school and spent a busy morning learning about the Second World War, writing to their MP (supporting the persuasive writing work they are currently doing in school) and even uncovering a local myth involving a dragon and an unusual burial site! Every child will receive a certificate from St Mary’s to show for all their hard work.

The next Festival of Learning for local primaries, hosted by our Maths department, takes place on 12 March.
