Year 6 London Day 2

We have had a busy day today. We have been to tower bridge, a very wet and windy boat cruise, a sunny playtime in jubilee gardens, pizza express, Covent gardens and we have just returned from the theatre. Matilda was fantastic!

Everyone has had a brilliant day but now fast asleep in bed!

Year 6 London Day 1


All the children in Year 6 are having a fantastic time so far. We travelled down and then visited the Imperial War Museum. It was really interesting and there was lots of things to read and see. We checked into the youth hostel and the children had some free time.
We ate at the restaurant and the burgers and ice cream were delicious!

After the meal we went for a walk on the Southbank of the river Thames where we saw lots of the sites.

Everyone is now in their rooms and settling down – ready for a big day tomorrow 🙂

Year 5 Brazil Carnival Day 2017

Yesterday the children in Year 5 took part in a Brazil day and found out all about Brazilian carnivals. They made a flag and a mask and then tried some different fruits in the afternoon. They all made their own tropical punch from orange, pineapple and apple juice.

The sun came out too just like in Brazil 🙂

 

Here are some photos of our day.

 

What did you learn about carnivals Year 5?

175th Anniversary Year 5

On Friday, Year 5 enjoyed learning about school in the past, to celebrate St.Paul’s school and church being 175 years old. They had the chance to look in detail at some school logs dating back over 100 years. Each book had daily entries made by the head teacher about events in school. Some really funny but some about punishments were a little scary!

Finally all the children joined in the service in church singing beautifully, “This little light of mine”

Digital Leaders Celebration Event 2017

Today, the Year 5 digital leaders went to the innovation centre, in Bradford, for a celebration event. They shared a presentation about their achievements in school over the year, which can be seen below. They then received a wristband and certificate to say they had successfully completed the training to be a digital leader.

The children also had the opportunity to speak to some visitors about some new technology and games and review them. They received a free mug for this too.

Well done to all the children involved. You have acted as role models to the rest of the school and your confidence has grown immensely. I am very proud of your maturity throughout the training but especially today.

A very proud Miss Charles 🙂

 

Year 5 Fire Safety Talk 26.6.2017

Today the fire service visited Year 5 and talked about fire safety. They explained what fires need to ignite and how to safely evacuate a building – especially their home. In addition, they talked about car safety and the importance of seatbelts.

The children also had the opportunity to ask some questions.

 

What new facts did you learn Year 5?

E-Safety Coffee Morning

Thank you to the parents who came along to our coffee morning on Friday. It was very interesting to find out how to keep children and ourselves safe online.

Here are some tips given by PCSO Luke Carson.

  • Protect your child online as much as you would in real life
  • Ensure that games and gaming sites are age appropriate
  • Remember that chat rooms are used inside games and children could be talking to strangers online
  • Apps all come with age restrictions and children in primary school should not be on most of them as they are 13+ or 16+ (Facebook, Whatsapp, Twitter, Music.ly)
  • Check www.commonsensemedia.org to find out more about websites and apps
  • Protect your own family on adult accounts too by changing privacy settings, changing passwords including WiFi routers and not using public WiFi accounts
  • Check your child’s social media accounts, messages and computers randomly not scheduled or at the same time each week

Thank you again to Luke for coming in and informing us about this important subject.

If you would like more information about keeping safe online or the apps the children are using, do not hesitate to come and speak to us.

Year 5 Music Workshop Day 2

Here are the photographs of the second day of the music workshop.

Thank you to all the parents who came and enjoyed the performance. For those parents who could not attend, here are some sections of the show for you to watch.

Finally, we would like to say a HUGE thank you to Miss Boswell and Mr Nash at BBEC for running the workshop but also surprising us with the gift of keeping all the instruments 🙂

We are so grateful and we now have a range of instruments in our school such as bomwhackers, tambourines, 5 ukuleles, maracas and many more!

E-Safety Coffee Morning (THIS FRIDAY)

As you are aware internet safety is a key issue for most parents and schools in this ever changing and technology driven world. The NSPCC state, 1 in 4 children have experienced something upsetting on a social networking site” and 1 in 3 children have been a victim of cyber-bullying”

We want to keep the children at St.Paul’s as safe as possible online. On Friday, PCSO Luke Carson has been invited to present some information to parents and carers about children’s safety online. All parents and carers are welcome to come and hear ways in which we can keep children safe and also be on hand to answer any questions you may have.

The coffee morning will start at 8:45 and there will be refreshments. Please let us know if you would like to attend by returning the slip on the letter, phoning or calling in at the office or commenting below.

Thank you
