Times Tables 'Rock Wrangle' 2018
We hosted our 2018 Times Tables Rock Stars Final in July 2018. Following the final class assessments for the year, the children with the highest results in terms of accuracy and speed in each class went through to our final 'Rock Wrangle' event. This saw five children in each year group take part in a year group times tables competition against the clock, supported by rock music backing tracks and our rock star audience of pupils, all dressed as rock stars for the day. Our 2018 Times Table champion received a trophy, all the year group finalists received a certificate to mark their achievement and the winner of each year group was presented with an engraved gold medal.

Copley Junior Spelling Bee 2018
Copley Junior’s second annual Spelling Bee was a great success – and a lot of fun too! A huge well done to our Spelling Bee competitors from every year group and also to our enthusiastic pupil audience. We saw a very tightly contested competition with six rounds before a single mistake was made.

Harvest Festival 2018
It was lovely to see so many parents and relatives at our Harvest Festival. Our theme for our Harvest Festival 2018 was 'My pizza as big as the sun.' During the service children from each class shared fascinating facts about the different foods that are added to make a pizza and the food miles involved, which was quite remarkable. Once again, we were very impressed with the children's wonderful singing.
We are very grateful for the huge number of donations given on both days, which were displayed on every table and ledge all around St Mary’s. All our donations were taken to Doncaster Foodbank, where they will make a big difference to many local families. I know helpers at the Foodbank are very grateful for our support.
Children in Need Day 2017
In November 2017 our School Council organised a fun day to help raise funds for Children in Need. We enjoyed coming to school in our pyjamas, onesie or casual clothes. Our teddies enjoyed coming to school for the day and were very well behaved. At break time we had a cookie and bun sale, children could guess the name of the teddy and have a go at guessing how many sweets were in the jar. We announced the results of the two competitions in our Friday Achievement Assembly. Well done to William S, who made the closest guess for how many sweets were in the jar and to Charlie R, who won the teddy by guessing the correct name - which was Charles!
Thank you to all the children who brought donations on the day, and to parents/carers who were so generous in sending donations for the bake sale. Well done to all the children in the School Council for organising such a successful day. We raised an amazing £421 to thank you to everyone for your generous support!

Our Year 5 pupils impressed everyone with their wonderful singing as they presented a lively nativity themed performance, ‘C-H-R-I-S-T-M-A-S spells Christmas’.

The Year 6 performance of ‘Aladdin’ had something for everyone – fantastic acting, super singing, energetic dance, humour, slapstick comedy, high tension, true love, tragedy and the triumph of good over evil, not forgetting to mention a synchronised swimming routine!
