St Margaret Ward Catholic Academy - Year 6 Transition

Please follow the link below for information regarding current Year 6 transition to St. Margaret Ward:

Primary Team Building Event:

We had 60 fantastic primary students - varying in age. Students took part and completed various team building and problem solving activities, where they had to show great team work, communication, problem solving and resilience. Some students were pushed out of their comfort zone working with students they didn't know from other feeder primary schools.
Students showed great determination and motivation throughout the night and represented themselves in a positive light. It was a huge success and students had a fantastic time!

Basketball event:

We had 50+ fantastic boys and girls from our collegiate primary schools. Throughout the evening students engaged within different basketball drills, then later applied their basketball skills and knowledge into a mini tournament. All students involved were fantastic and showed outstanding knowledge and understanding of the rules whilst working together displaying fantastic team work skills and resilience throughout the games.

We look forward to welcoming the students back later in the year to compete in another Basketball

Year 5 Spelling Bee

Spelling is a vital life skill which we constantly strive to improve at St Margaret Ward. We recently extended our promotion of spelling by holding a Spelling Bee for members of Year 5 from across the Collegiate. The pupils were well and truly put through their spelling paces, having to spell some very tricky words from memory without the aid of pens or paper. We were astounded by the level at which the pupils performed and were delighted to see such enthusiasm and skill. We are hoping to make this a regular event with even more challenging spellings!
