Year 6 Remembrance Day

Last week, Year 6 took some time to remember the wars, the soldiers – past and present, their families and their own lives.

They made some poppy crosses and some beautiful artwork which contained their own poems. Here are some examples of their exceptional work (click to enlarge).

The week was finished with the whole school 2 minute silence.

Manchester attack prayers and thoughts

This morning, in class prayers, Year 5 were talking about the tragic events in Manchester and how we can deal with these kinds of rare but awful events.

We watched the advice video on BBC Newsround  and then wrote some really thoughtful prayers. Here is the website if anyone would like some advice. http://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/13865002

Here are our prayers and thoughts.

Everyone at St.Paul’s CE Primary sends all their prayers and love to anyone affected by the events in Manchester this week.

Year 5 Trip to Tatton Park 5.4.2017

Today Year 5 went on a trip to Tatton Park / Tatton Dale Home Farm. They were treat like evacuees from start to finish! They all had the chance to experience what life was like for an evacuee on the farm. They learnt about the farm animals and how to milk a cow. They looked inside the house they may have lived in as well as looking at the stables and the equipment used in the land army. They were all  very surprised when the air-raid siren went off at the end of the day too!

The staff there commented on how wonderful the children behaved and that they were a credit to the school. Well done Year 5! Hope you had a great day and learnt lots. I certainly did.

Tell me your favourite part or something you learnt.

Fair Trade

Last week, Mrs Cook did an assembly on Fair Trade. She then asked us, the digital leaders to post on the blog to let everyone know what it is about.

Here is some information:

Fair trade is where farmers get a fair price for their crops like apple, coco beans, corn, carrots and many more. When you go to the supermarket, look for the fair-trade sticker on the fruit and veg but there is also many more items that have the sticker on. To give the farmers what they really earn, you can give buy the food that has it on, the money that you give will go to the farmers so they can live a happy life.

Respect Year 5

As part of this term’s school value, Year 5 have been learning about respect. We have been talking about how we can go above and beyond with politeness and respect in school. We watched this video about helping others and not expecting anything but respect in return.

What did you learn from this video Year 5?

Well done to those children in Year 5 who have been holding doors opening, stepping aside in the corridors, asking adults if they want help and saying, “Have a nice day” and “How are you?”.

How else have you been showing respect?

S.Patrick’s Day Year 5

Today we learnt about St. Patrick’s Day and why people celebrate. We talked about the patron saints of each country in the UK and why British people celebrate.

Here are some facts we learnt.

  • St.Patrick became a Christian priest. He returned to Ireland and converted many Irish people to Christianity
  • People wear green on Saint Patrick’s Day.  Some people wear costumes or funny hats
  • Some people go to church in t
    he morning. In Ireland, St. Patrick’s Day has primarily been a religious festival. There are parades all around the world.

We then made a shamrock sun catcher to put up at the window. The shamrock is a St. Patrick’s Day symbol because St. Patrick used the shamrock to teach the concept of the Holy Trinity. The three leaves represent the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

 

Wishing a very happy St.Patrick’s day to everyone.

Children in Need

This week we have been baking some beautiful buns to raise money for Children in Need.

The children enjoyed eating them all at break time on Friday and looked bright and colourful in non-uniform, pyjamas or onesies!

Thank you to all the staff, parents and children involved and a big THANK YOU to you all for your kind and generous donations.
