Year 4 Firework Safety Video

We were concerned about people getting hurt this bonfire night, so we decided to make a short video with some helpful tips!

Year 4

School Council

School Council meet every last Wednesday of the month. Each meeting is led by the councillors and is a forum for pupil voice across school. This month children talked about E-Safety and Human Rights.


Bonfire Night Safety

Bonfire night/ Guy Fawkes night is extremely fun and exciting for children and adults but it is also a very dangerous time too. At St Paul’s we want all our pupils and parents to have an enjoyable but safe time. .

As you all celebrate bonfire night tonight or at the weekend, Year 6 would like you to consider some safety advice they have written to keep all our pupils safe.




For more information, see for injury facts, firework facts and safety advice.

Digital Leader Training Day 2


Today at the Innovation Centre, in Bradford, we presented and shared our work so far to the other schools and the leader of the course. This included a Powerpoint about internet safety, our post on the blog and the assembly we did in school.

After that, we looked at storage devices and problems with storing information on ipads, cameras and video players. We learnt that documents, photos and videos can be stored on ‘OneDrive’, ‘iCloud’ and ‘GoogleDrive’. These can store data on a large server and are called cloud storage. We also had the chance to look at the server they use at the Innovation Centre.

An interesting fact we learnt was that there is a huge tunnel and wire under the Atlantic Ocean all the way to the UK!

Following on from our work on passwords from last time, we looked at a website to find out how secure passwords are. It is This will tell you how fast a smart computer will be able to access your account from instantly to thousands of years.

We learnt lots!

Year 2 had a visit from “Oscar” from the Dog’s Trust.

On Thursday 21st October the children in Year 2 had a visit from “Oscar” from the Dog’s Trust. He and his owner came to explain how to behave and be safe around dogs. The children learnt about how to read a dog’s body language and to think carefully about how a dog might be feeling.

They were given some “Top Tips”

  1. Always ask the owner if you can stroke their dog.
  2. Always let the dog sniff the back of your hand first.
  3. Always ask the owner where the dog likes to be stroked.
  4. Cross your arms if a dog runs up to you and look away.
  5. If a dog knocks you over curl up into a tight ball.
  6. Never put your face near a dog.
  7. Do not bother a dog when it is eating or drinking. Thanks Oscar!!009013 016 017 019 020 021 022 024 026 027 028 029 030 032 033 036 037 038 039 041 042 043 044 045 046 047 048 049 050 051 054 055 056 058 059 060 063 068 069 070 071 072 074 075 079
