Stingray had a fantastic time on the Wet Wheels trip. They were able to go on a power boat which was accessible for wheel chairs. They went for a trip around GunWharf Harbour, out into open water and then were able to have a go at piloting. Denim made sure the skipper knew what he was doing, informing him when they needed to go faster. Chanay loved feeling the waves and getting very wet. Grace and Theo were the fastest hitting an impressive 31 knots. Many thanks to Wet Wheels who generously provided this trip for our pupils free of charge.
A Walk Through The Decades Today was the day of our Annual Mary Rose Academy Sponsored Walk! This year we decided on the theme of A Walk Through the Decades with each area of the school dressing up in the theme of a different decade. EYFS and Key Stage 1 dressed up as the 1980’s, Key Stage 2 as the 1990’s, Key Stage 3 as the 1970’s, Key Stage 4 as the 1960’s and 6th Form as the 00’s.
Today in Assembly we celebrated National Grandparents Day. We were very pleased to be joined by nearly 50 Grandparents and Great Grandparents, the hall was packed. During the week pupils have been thinking about how Grandparents help us and wanted to say thank you. Our thank you was to sing lots of our favourite songs to the visiting Grandparents and to give each of them a personalised thank you card.
I hope that you all had a good summer break, enjoyed the good weather and had some quality time with your children. I’d like to extend a special welcome to all new pupils, parents and staff. This year Mary Rose is celebrating its 10th anniversary. We’ve started to plan a range of exciting birthday themed events for everyone to enjoy throughout the year.
