In the spirit of the current World Cup, Booth's assembly was all about Sport and Peace today! We sang the National Anthem (perhaps better than the footballers we see on TV!) and learnt all about how sport helps us all.
A big well done to all of our fantastic children who enter our Annual Talent Show. From singing and dancing to piano and guitar; magic tricks and jokes to skipping and gymnastics, there was something for everyone. It was difficult to pick a winner, but Maia was voted as the top talent by the Teachers and Elgar pupils who didn’t participate.
We were so proud of our Junior children's performance in our School Swimming Gala! It was great to see the progress that all the children have made in their swimming ability. All houses tried their hardest, with Norman's beating Saxons and Romans and winning the House Cup. A big thank you to our swimming team, Louise, Paul and Mr Gilchrist, for organising a super morning.
Churchill’s class assembly took us back in time to World War II! They taught us all about their namesake, Winston Churchill and thrilled us with their lovely wartime songs.
We are incredibly proud of Jack in Elgar class. At the mere age of 10, Jack has sat his Maths GCSE Higher papers - what an achievement! We are sure he will do very well and we look forward to finding out his results later this summer.
Doyle had super busy afternoon in science with Mrs Warman: ‘From shopping for groceries at Morrisons, to preparing and eating our healthy snacks (and washing up too). Thank you so much for representing St. Martins so well ... impeccable behaviour Doyle! Confident recall of food groups, including some of the more challenging foods, and some super balanced healthy wraps & sandwiches too; from wholemeal bread, tuna, cheese & ham, to carrots, cucumber, houmous & olives. Brilliant!’
Our cricket team had a fantastic day at Grimsby Cricket Club, winning 4 out of 6 of their matches!

This week has been full of activities as we have kick off the start of our sporting season. From cricket to rounders to skipping to athletics to swimming, our pupils have been busy representing St. Martin’s at a whole host of events.
On Tuesday, our Doyle, Shackleton and Elgar classes represented the school at a cricket tournament, whilst on Wednesday, whilst the whole school took part in the NSPCC Skipathon, some Booth and Doyle boys had a go at scoring some wickets. On Thursday, Booth and Doyle representatives took part in an inter-school athletics tournament whilst on Friday, the Juniors showcased St. Martin’s swimming talent at a swimming Gala.
We are so lucky to have a growing sports culture at St. Martin’s that will continue to blossom with the support of parents, pupils and teachers. At St. Martin’s, we believe sport to be an integral part of the curriculum which not only physically benefits our pupils but offers a whole host of opportunities and advantages.
We are so impressed with our swimmers today at Grimsby Leisure Centre! Third overall with our boys scooping up first place and girls 5th! A big well done to all and thank you to Louise for coaching us to victory!
Potter had a lovely day at Conisbrough despite the rain. We enjoyed dressing up in the style of clothes from 850 years ago and learning about the different jobs at the castle. We then prepared a feast for the visit of Henry II. We toured the keep and found out how Lord Hamelin and Lady Isobel lived all those years ago.
Some of Doyle and Booth did a great job representing St. Martin’s in an athletics tournament today! Well done all!
We had great fun raising money for the NSPCC with our fruit tuck shop and Skipathon! A big thank you to all for helping us support this amazing cause, and thank you to the Friends too!
Elgar had a fantastic trip today to the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight! They had great fun: rare sight to see the spitfire parked in front of the Lancaster, Standing by the rear gunners position of the Lancaster and Practising getting on masks in case of a gas attack!
Doyle have sent off some Wedding cards for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle! We are looking forward to celebrating the Royal Wedding on Friday!
Today some of us visited Scartho Community Library to see how our old reading bus Is being used! The children enjoyed learning about the library and looking at all the wonderful books!
