Year 4s Assembly

On the 12th November Year 4 had their class assembly. They spent several days writing their own script, creating their own pictures, deciding what texts to read and music to sing.

Mrs Barraclough and I are very proud of the time and effort the children put into their assembly.

We would also like to thank everyone for their attendance, we were overwhelmed by how many parents came.

Thank you

Miss Briggs, Mrs Barraclough and a very smiley Year 4.

Football Team

Tonight, the football team again travelled to Tong High School to take on seven different teams. Ryecroft B failed to turn up which resulted in St Paul’s being awarded all three points which got the team off to a good start.

However, things didn’t all go according to plan when as they suffered a 3-0 defeat at the hands of a very strong Thornbury A side. Joe even managed to put the ball into his own net. In the next two matches, the players failed to find the back of the net but managed to keep two clean sheets and earned 4 points through two 0-0 draws against St Stephens and St Columbas respectively.

In the next match the team fought hard to earn a 1-0 victory against Thornbury B as Jack caught the keeper by surprise with a shot from 30 yards out. The team then went from strength to strength as they pummelled Marshfield 4-0. Joe scored a brilliant hat trick from defence and Lewis added a fourth with a semi-bicycle kick! They then went on to beat All Saints B 3-0 with another great performance. Joe found himself on the score sheet again, Jack slotted into the bottom corner from the edge of the area and Hashim added a third!

Ryecroft                 0 – 1      St Paul’s – Forfeit 

Thornbury A          3 – 0      St Paul’s

St Stephens           0 – 0      St Paul’s

St Columbas          0 – 0      St Paul’s

Thornbury B          0 – 1      St Paul’s (Jack)

Marshfield              0 – 4      St Paul’s (Joe 3, Lewis)

All Saints B            0 – 3      St Paul’s (Joe, Jack, Hashim)

Remembrance Day – Year 1


Today, Year 1 have painted their own interpretation of Flanders Field in memory of those who have sacrificed their lives for our country during the wars and conflicts around the world.


Year 1’s Magic Box!

Last week, Year 1 wrote some wonderful Bonfire Night senses poems based on Kit Wright’s poem ‘The Magic Box’. We popped our Bonfire Night poems into our very own magical box and overnight something amazing happened …



Our poems disappeared and we were left with some instructions on ‘how to make sparkler treats’.

We had so much fun following the instructions we have decided to write some of our own to share with our friends. If you would like to know how to make chocolate sparkler treats, pop in and see Year 1!

Year 6 Remembrance Day Activities


Today, the children in Year 6 have been learning all about Remembrance Day.In maths, we researched all the numbers associated with war and remembrance.

“In WW2, 60 million people died, 40 million were civilians” Lucy & Taylor

“30 thousand bombs were dropped on London in WW1”  Mia & Joshua

“3% of the world population were killed” Joe & Lewis

“Over 2 million houses were destroyed in the Blitz” Jake & Jacob

“250,000 people lied about their age in WW1” Jack & Hashim

Afterwards, in English, the children wrote some fantastic, thoughtful poems about remembrance and soldiers.

Here are some examples… (Click on the image to read the poem)

Remembrance Day 11.11.2015


All around school children have been learning about Remembrance Day and soldiers past and present. The children know why we wear poppies and why it is sometimes called Armistice Day.

At 11 o’clock the whole school gathered in the hall for a special assembly and two minutes silence.



This week the children have started Phonics lessons every morning. Each day the children have learnt how to read and write a new sound.

Watch the video to see how the children do this.

Please continue to help your child with their letter formation homework. The ‘rhymes’ help them to remember how to do this correctly. It is important the children form their letters the correct way and keep practicing. Point out these sounds to your child in signs, labels and the local environment to show how they are in the early stages of reading by recognising them in everyday life.

Next week we will be learning CVC ‘green words’ by sounding out and blending sounds to read simple words.


Quick reminder that it is Year 4s class assembley next week – Thursday 12th November. Come and find out about what we learnt last half term.

Year 4

Year 5 visit to the Gurdwara

Today Year 5 went to visit the Gurdwara Singh Sabha. They learnt a lot about the Sikh Holy Book and how the Sikhs pray and follow the 5 Ks. They were given the opportunity to join in when we looked at instruments used at every service. They also had great fun trying to put a Sikh turban on properly, which is not an easy thing to do!

All of the staff were really proud of Year 5’s behaviour and the respect they had for their local community and other religions.
