Year 3 Art Day

Today in Year 3 we had our first Art day.

We focused on mixing colours with a variety of materials and the outcomes have been fantastic.

We have drawn and painted Stonehenge and even made it out of biscuits – yummy!

We’ve had a lovely day and learnt lots about Art.

Year 4 Art and Science

In the last couple of weeks, we have been learning how to draw fruit and use shading. We also looked at the life of a French artist called Paul Cezanne and his “Still Life” paintings.

In Science we have been looking at teeth, learning their different names and functions.

Well done, Year 4!

Harvest Festival

Thank you to all the parents, carers, friends and family members who attended our Harvest Festival in church yesterday or/and donated some food.

Thank you also to all the children who sang their hearts out and Year 6 readers who did a great job with their readings and prayers.

It was an amazing celebration!

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?
