Year 6 Leavers

Yesterday was a sad day for St Paul’s C of E Primary School – we said goodbye to a wonderful year six class. As a class, they were always exceptionally well behaved and set a great example for the rest of the children at St Paul’s to follow. On this blog, you will find all of the videos that were played in the assembly. I would also like to thank Mr Dolphin for recording it for us.

The assembly started off with some memories from Key Stage One, followed by the children singing – what has now become one of my favourite songs – When I Grow Up…

After singing their first song, the children continued to share memories from their time in years three and four. In particular, their trip to Castleton…

Whilst looking at photos from years three and four, the children sang Don’t Look Back In Anger…

The photos from years five and six played in the background whilst the children shared their memories of their time in my class. Notably about the trips went on to places such as: Cartwright Hall, Huddersfield University, Eden Camp, and most notably, Fazenda – the Brazilian restaurant in Leeds. There were also photos from our trip to Whitby earlier this year.

Finally, the assembly finished with the children batting through their tears to sing Somewhere Only We Know…

During the assembly, I managed to take a few photos, and a couple of short recordings of the children…

Later that night, the children returned for their Prom! It was a great night. After tucking in to some lovely food, everyone got up and was singing and dancing away. Thank you to Mrs Coe, Miss Wassel and Mrs Pearson for organising the night! Also, a big thank you to Mrs Lupton, Miss Galtress, Miss Charles, Miss Thosebury, Mrs Cook and Mrs Malt for joining us and helping to make the night special.

Tuesday brought the final day of school. After a busy morning handing things out and eating cake, there was still time for the children to give me a headache – singing and dancing away as they had done the night before.

Thank you for being a brilliant class for the last two years. Good luck at high school and in the future. I, and everyone at St Paul’s, wish you all the best and really hope you come back and visit!

London Residential!

Last week, we traveled to London for our end of year residential! We had a fantastic time and got to visit some wonderful places: Tower Bridge, the theater and Wembley to name a few.  Throughout the trip, the children behaved impeccably – they were a credit to St Paul’s Primary School and their parents. A big thanks to Mr Platt Snr, Mrs Lupton, Mr Daynes, Miss Charles, Mr Collier and Mrs Cook for accompanying us on our trip. Below are some photos from our trip.

Well done children – this was a fantastic way to end your time at St Paul’s!

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 4 Fun in the Sun!

French Day

Last Friday was French Day.

A big THANK YOU goes to all the adults who took part in some way or other (either at the Café, the cricket field or in the classrooms) and to Year 6 children for being fantastic waiters!

Here are some photos of this wonderful day.

Another big THANK YOU goes to all the children and staff who wished or sang Happy Birthday to me!

Year 6 Production

Last Thursday, year six performed their end of year production. They will be performing it for a final time this week.

There are a few different people who myself, and year six, would like to thank for helping us prepare. Firstly, we would like to thank Mr Horsfall and Miss Holdsworth from BBEC. They came in on Monday mornings to help with casting, learning lines, learning the songs and the dances.

We would also like to thank Mr Dolphin for recording the performance, Mrs Riaz who stepped in on the morning to help with the girls’ hair,  and Mrs Artist for helping us learn the songs every Wednesday.

Whenever Mrs Killmartin has had a spare minute, she has made the time to come and help us. She has taught us dances, songs and has given us lots of advice and stage directions.

Finally, Mrs Lupton has worked extremely hard to ensure we have everything we need ready for the production. She has created all the settings and has gathered together everything needed for the costumes.
