What a fantastic week we have had here in St Clare’s! We have been busy this week taking part in different activities for European Week of Sport. To finish off the week today, 6th class took on the teachers in tug of war. The teachers definitely need to work on their strength as 6th class beat them 2-1. Congratulations 6th class!

Well done everyone for participating so well in a superb week of sport!

‘Climb the Heights’ Skipping Challenge


Today was Team Work Thursday! We participated in the ‘Climb the Heights’ Skipping Challenge. We set a target that the whole school worked together on throughout the day to achieve.  We counted how many skips each pupil completed and then we had a look to see how many of Europe’s mountains our school climbed. We managed to climb most of Europe’s mountains even Monte Bianco in Italy (4,810m) and Mont Blanc (4,810m) !! Below are some of the results.
