Transition Events

On Friday 21st February over 70 students from The Newman Catholic Collegiate attended a transition day, funded by The Hubb Foundation. Activities included pizza making, Engineering with KMF, Multi Sports with the Port Vale Foundation, puppet making, arts & crafts and Harry Potter Maths. Students had a brilliant time and we look forward to welcoming them back during the Easter holidays.

 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!

 Year 5 Times Tables Rockstars
On Thursday 12th February over 60 Year 5 students competed to become the quickest Times Table Rockstar. Students battled through 2 rounds to make it through to the Final Round. A special well done to St John the Evangelist Academy who had 3 students in the top 5! All students were fantastic and we were blown away by their re-call of Times Tables.

Mathematics Revision Day

On Monday 9th March over 50 Year 6 children from the Newman Catholic Collegiate took part in a Mathematics Revision Day. Revision sessions were taught by Mrs Mortimer and Mrs Munden, followed by an exam question relay. Well done to the team from St Wilfrid's who won the relay with 28 points!
