40 YEARS!

CarolA huge congratulations from all her friends and colleagues both past and present to Mrs Carol Brown who celebrated 40 years employment at Dunmow St Mary’s Primary School. Mrs Brown was employed on 10th January 1977 as a cleaner. Over the years she has seen staff and children come and go but her thoroughness, loyalty and commitment to the school has been appreciated by all. Mrs Griffiths (Headteacher) said “Mrs Brown enjoys cleaning and takes a huge pride in the work she does, the school is very lucky to have employed her and with no plans for retirement hopes to benefit from her dedication for many more years.”

Operation Christmas Child

christmaschild2Collecting, wrapping and filling shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child has become woven into the culture here at St Mary’s Primary School. Parents find themselves storing away boxes after the ‘new school shoe’ purchases and children squirrel away possible toys, games and other mementos for the boxes long before they are duechristmaschild to be collected. This year children brought in 104 boxes full to the brim that will be sent across the globe for children less fortunate than themselves to enjoy. What a great start to the festive season for the school.

 

Young Shakespeare Company – Year 6

Performance of Macbeth by Young Shakespeare Company

couldronWhat an incredible experience for our year 6 children to see the play they are studying brought to life in such a dramatic, interactive way. The children were mesmerised throughout and their comments sum up the impact the performance had on them.

‘I would 100% recommend your play to others and I’d love to see some of your other shows because I’m sure they’re brilliant.’

‘You have inspired me to read more Shakespeare plays’

‘I have never seen a Shakespeare play before, so this being my first one, I think it will stick in my mind forever.’

‘My favourite part was the battle and how you made the swords sound real but we actually had to use our imagination to see the swords!’

We are very excited to see the longer term impact on the childrens’ drama work, reading and writing.

Author Nick Butterworth Visit

authorvisit2Children from our Reception, Year 1 & 2 classes were treated to a talk by Nick Butterworth award winning author and illustrator of the QPootle 5 and Percy the Park Keeper Series of books. Nick is a passionate advocate for parents reading with their children even when children are capable of reading books themselves. He shared stories of his family and his childhood in a way that had the children engrossed and laughing along at the anecdotes. They also loved the drawings he did especially the dragon created from a child’s squiggly line! AuthorvisitChildren were able to purchase books or bring along their own copy of their favourite Nick Butterworth book for him to sign which proved exceptionally popular. Thank you to Nick for his boundless enthusiasm and Mrs Wood for organising the event on behalf of the school.
