The latest news from our village school:
We have been very busy this term at South Marston C of E Primary School.
The new children in Reception have made a fantastic start to school, many of whom are from our village. They are really enjoying making new friends and have already started to explore the village on their famous welly walks!
We were all particularly excited about the Mr Men dressing up day on the 21st October and seeing their amazing costumes.
We are looking forward to the start of hot meals being served in the new school dining room after half term. The children have already been wowed by the food they tasted in a special after school tasting session and are excited about trying more of the healthy meals available.
We are in the process of naming the new school dining room and would welcome any suggestions.
Also this term we have already made some important links with other local schools. Class 4 have made a link with Bishopstone Primary School and have enjoyed visiting Swindon Town Football Club together before returning to our school to work together on Maths problem solving involving the dimensions of the football stadium and souvenir prices.
Class 3 have also made a link with Oaktree Primary School and have had fun looking at similarities and differences between themselves and the locations of their schools. Our children really enjoyed showing them our village location. We look forward to more exciting opportunities with these projects.
