Faith in Everyone to Shine Brightly
College Road, Purton, Swindon, Wiltshire, SN5 4AR
It's the Summer Holidays now so there won't be work set by your teachers. In the meantime, though, there are lots of great ideas below in the St Mary's Summer Holiday Club to keep you entertained and active over the holidays! Pop straight over to www.st-marys-purton.wilts.sch.uk.
We hope you have a lovely Summer and we look forward to hearing and seeing what you get up to when we come back to school in September!
Have fun, keep safe, be kind - and most of all #shinebrightly!
For those of you in Mr Biddle's and Miss Harries' class next year, thank you for coming to our meeting and sorry we ran out of time! We look forward to seeing you all in September. If you have any questions you can email Mr Biddle. If you would like, you can click here to download and complete the bunting from our video chat, you don't need to use the template, you can write your facts into your home learning books and either send a picture to Mr Biddle or show us in September. We have also created a couple of short videos for you to watch:
