Good Luck

Good Luck to all our Year 6 students who are taking their SATS tests this week.

Try your best and do as the best you can do. You will do great!

Year 6 African Drumming

On Monday, Paul Butler from Drummers United came to our school to teach us how to play African Drums. We learnt lots of rhythms and facts in the session then performed to the school in assembly.

It was a fantastic afternoon!

Year 6 Science & Media Museum

On Wednesday 13th February,Year 6 went on a visit to the Science & Media Museum in Bradford. We went on the bus and took part in lots of activities once we were there.

We looked at the TV, gaming and animation exhibitions. In addition, we took part in a ‘Light it up’ session with science experiments about light. Before lunch we watched an Imax film and saw the dissection of a sheep’s eye and learnt the parts. Lastly we explored the Wonderlab and conducted science experiments.

Well done Year 6. You were a credit to the school and learnt lots!

Year 6 Christmas Week 2018

Christmas Fair

Thank you to everyone who attended our Chrirsmas fair yesterday. It was a lovely evening and a great turnout. It was lovely to see lots of parents, families and children enjoying the stalls and games.

We hope everyone enjoyed it.

Remembrance Day Year 6 & Reception

Last week, Year 6 and Reception class worked together to produce a fantastic Remembrance Day display to celebrate 100 years since the end of WW1.

The children in both classes worked together to produce lots of poppies using paint, tissue paper, crayons and felt tips. We then joined them altogether on the silhouette of a soldier.

Year 2 also kindly contributed their poppies in the shape of 100.

Well done to everyone involved. I am so proud of this amazing tribute.

World Mental Health Day 10.10.2018

Today is World Mental Health Day. Across the country and world people are talking about mental health and how important it is to talk. Mental health is about our feelings, our thinking, our emotions and our moods.

At St.Paul’s this year we are going to be talking a lot about mental health and keeping our children’s minds healthy.

In Year 6 we watched some videos about how we can reach out and talk about our feelings before they take over and what feelings are normal and those which are overwhelming.

If you are worried about your friends or you feel down or upset please talk to your teachers or staff in school;we can help 🙂

What is your advice Year 6?

Year 6 Whitby Trip

On Friday, Year 6 went to Whitby as part of our topic work. We looked at the Abbey, walked down (and up) the 199 steps, went in the old town, on the pier and play on the beach. The children also had time to look in the shops and buy gifts and sweets. We had a fantastic day although the weather was miserable and wet. The children were a credit to the school and enjoyed it very much.

What was your favourite part?
