National Daily MIle
It was fantastic to see all the children in school completing the daily mile, on Friday 30th April 2021, as part of the first ever national daily mile.
Science has proven that 15 minutes of daily walking can boost not just our physical fitness but our mental fitness.

Match Report - St. Mary's v Wheatfields, St. Ives
Tuesday 19th November 2019 - 1:30pm kick-off
On Tuesday 19th November 2019 we played against Wheatfileds Primary School in St. Ives. The first half was particularly tough as we were a recently formed team and this was our first match working together, representing our school. As captain, I made sure that everyone was focused and spoke to them before the match to make sure there were at their best! Our players were:
George G (captain)
Mr. Mills (manager)
Our opponents were very experienced and skilled, which really showed. However, our goal keeper, Oliver, was incredible at saving and did a brilliant job from start to finish - so much so , he won 'man of the match'. Wheatfield's strength was in its team's ability to communicate and know were each player was at any one time so they could keep the ball in their possession. This led to them winning 11-0.
We kept fighting to the end and moral was very high throughout the match - the home team were very accommodating and we are planning a rematch soon!
George Gurney (captain)
All the children are using the Skip2Bfit ropes provided by school to increase their skips per two minutes. The aim is to raise the heart rate quickly and sustain for two minutes. Each class has a set of ropes, which can be used at various times throughout the week.
