This morning, I led the assembly to launch Marner’s inaugural Diversity Month during July! There will be a range of activities and events to celebrate our differences and the diverse nature of our community and society. Earlier this morning, our Reception, Yr 1 & 2 classes shared their African drumming experiences. It was wonderful to see so many parents & carers at the concert.
On Sunday, the Marner Mighty Girls attended Processions to celebrate 100 years since the first women won the right to vote. 30,000 women and girls turned London into a sea of violet, white and green (Suffragette colours) as we sang, danced and waved flags and banners that the girls had made. It was a once in a lifetime opportunity to participate in this living artwork and hopefully we created some memories that the girls will cherish!
This week has been Safeguarding Week here at Marner. We started the week introducing the NSPCC’s Speak Out, Stay Safe programme. On Wednesday, we held a non-uniform day with the theme of ‘Go Green for the NSPCC’. We raised £364.85 through generous donations from our parents annd carers.
As a part of the national curriculum the NSPCC’s Speak Out, Stay Safe programme visited our school to make sure our pupils have the knowledge and understanding they need to stay safe from abuse. For more information, please visit the NSPCC’s website at Speak out. Stay safe.
Safer Internet Day Event – Tuesday 6th February 2018
Our Digital Leaders arrived at the event raring to go and started on their group activities. They also acted as hosts showing other delegates around the conference. Some of them were selected to meet the Minister for Culture, Communications and Creative Industries, Margot James. They spent some time discussing ‘online jargon’ with her. Then it was time to prepare for their presentation. The auditorium began to fill up with professionals from industry, education and children from other schools. We are so proud of Marner Primary and all of the young people at the event. They were amazing! Thanks too to the organisers – such a wonderful, inspiring day.
Congratulations to for winning the Spelling Bee on Friday. Manha, Rafee & Maryam from Yr 5 came a close second in a very competitive event. They worked well as a team and were excellent ambassadors for the school. Well done!

From Ms Scott:
Congratulations to the 33 children from Years 3 to 6 who represented Marner in the Tower Hamlets Primary Cross Country in Victoria Park. Over 550 children took part this year! Year 3s and 4s run 800m, with Year 5s and 6s running 1500m – our children were brilliant, giving it their all and showing great sportsman and sportswoman-ship. A special mention to Favor, in Y5, who came a very impressive 3rd place in her race!
Yesterday, I was privileged to attend the Year 5 assembly and I was so proud of all of the children. They presented an exciting and informative assembly focusing on aspects of the history of democracy in the UK — with a fantastic song from Mary Poppins too! Well done to the children and staff in Year 5 for such a wonderful performance.
