Winning Football Team

Yesterday, St Paul’s football team travelled to Tong High School to take part in the first round of matches in the Under 11 Football League. The night began with disappointment as the team suffered a 1-0 defeat to Bowling Park in a match which they had dominated from start to finish. However, the team quickly bounced back and won their next four matches! This included victories over Bankfoot, Newhall Park A, Newby and Newhall Park B. The results can be seen below, the goal scorers are in the brackets.


Bowling Park         1 – 0     St Paul’s

Bankfoot                0 – 1     St Paul’s (Charlie)

Newhall Park A      0 – 1     St Paul’s (Lewis)

Newby                    0 – 1     St Paul’s (Joe)

Newhall Park B      0 – 1     St Paul’s (Lewis)


The team will play their next matches on Thursday 22nd November at the same venue. In total there are 20 teams in the league and the top two go on to represent the league at Bradford University so there is plenty to play for.


Thanks to all who helped and the players for their hard work in both training and the matches last night!

We’re Going on a Bear Hunt!

Well done to all the children for performing special Harvest songs so brilliantly.

Whitby Trip Photographs

We had an absolutely fantastic day on Friday! The weather was beautiful and the children had a wonderful time.We looked at the Abbey, walked down and up the 199 steps, played on the beach and looked in the shops.

Many people around Whitby said how polite and well behaved the children were.

Well done Year 6 🙂

We’re Going on a Bear Hunt!

This week the children will be learning the story ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’. We will be doing lots of different fun activities related to this children’s classic.

Watch the video of the story with your child and join in together during the repeated refrains.


Keeping Healthy!

This week we have been learning about how to stay healthy.

Firstly, we discovered how there are germs everywhere and so it is very important we wash our hands carefully to get rid of all those nasty germs that can make us poorly.

1.Turn the tap on and wet your hands.



2. Pump 1 squirt of soap on your hands.



3. Lather the soap all over your hands making sure you rub the palms and backs of your hands. Rub between your fingers and don’t forget your thumbs!





4. Rinse the soap off your hands with water.


5. Dry your hands.



We talked about which foods and drinks we thought would be good for us and make us grow big and strong. The children knew lots of fruit and vegetables and dairy foods which help to give us the vitamins, minerals and calcium our bodies need.

They sorted different food and drink as to whether it was healthy or unhealthy then drew a picture of a healthy food plate.

Unfortunately a lot of the foods we love are not very good for us but we decided a little bit every now and then is ok!!

Another way we can keep healthy is to exercise and the children have been really enjoying their PE lessons. We have been using our bodies to move in lots of different ways, but first we need to warm up our bodies and get our blood pumping around our body.

After all that exercise it’s important we cool down our bodies and stretch.




The children really enjoyed making their own fruit kebabs. They used new skills of slicing, cutting, chopping and skewering their fruit.

Thank you for your continued support.
