Year 6 Remembrance Day

Last week, Year 6 took some time to remember the wars, the soldiers – past and present, their families and their own lives.

They made some poppy crosses and some beautiful artwork which contained their own poems. Here are some examples of their exceptional work (click to enlarge).

The week was finished with the whole school 2 minute silence.

Year 6 Maths Video – How to…

In Year 6 we have been making ‘How to’ videos to show other children how to work out maths problems. We have learnt that teaching someone else do something is a good way to remember methods and the videos can help others too.

There is also a video of out-takes which is quite funny too.

Hope you like them.

 

Year 6 Whitby Trip 6.10.2017

Last Friday, Year 6 went to Whitby as part of their topic and English work.

We had an amazing day, the sun shone all day, we paddled in the sea, had an ice-cream, looked in the shops and went up and down the 199 steps.

The children were a credit to the school and we had a lovely day spotting the sights in Whitby and the book Room 13.

Here are some photos and a video of our day.

Well done Year 6!

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 🙂
