Pre-Prep and Mrs, Mrs Jones... had a very special yuletide play party at Wacky Warehouse today. Swinging, jumping, sliding and diving in the ball pit; followed by a lovely lunch. Thanks to the PTA for part funding a fantastic end of term celebration!

Well it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas at Stella Maris. We've had a very well attended Christmas Fair, where our industrious PTA elves raised a whopping £1080.01. Well done to all involved!! Last week we attended Chaplin's Jack and the Beanstalk pantomime and the following evening we had a beautiful Christmas Concert at St John's Church (photos on the PTA Facebook page) whilst today we've had a Christmas party for the whole school. 'Tis the season after all!

Last week in school the children were learning about safety on Bonfire Night and at this time of year. Children created lovely 'firework' pieces of art in Pre-Prep and Year 3 and the older children enjoyed a visit from the local Fire Brigade where safety was the main theme, but they also enjoyed dressing up as firefighters!
Last Friday the children participated in a reflective assembly on Remembrance and the importance of understanding what this part of our heritage means. The younger children walked to the War Memorial at the top of the road later in the day and this week Years 5 and 6 will visit the memorial also and call in to see some of the war graves in the cemetery across the road.
