Year 6 Maths Video – How to…

In Year 6 we have been making ‘How to’ videos to show other children how to work out maths problems. We have learnt that teaching someone else do something is a good way to remember methods and the videos can help others too.

There is also a video of out-takes which is quite funny too.

Hope you like them.

 

Year 6 Whitby Trip 6.10.2017

Last Friday, Year 6 went to Whitby as part of their topic and English work.

We had an amazing day, the sun shone all day, we paddled in the sea, had an ice-cream, looked in the shops and went up and down the 199 steps.

The children were a credit to the school and we had a lovely day spotting the sights in Whitby and the book Room 13.

Here are some photos and a video of our day.

Well done Year 6!

Year 6 Leavers

Yesterday was a sad day for St Paul’s C of E Primary School – we said goodbye to a wonderful year six class. As a class, they were always exceptionally well behaved and set a great example for the rest of the children at St Paul’s to follow. On this blog, you will find all of the videos that were played in the assembly. I would also like to thank Mr Dolphin for recording it for us.

The assembly started off with some memories from Key Stage One, followed by the children singing – what has now become one of my favourite songs – When I Grow Up…

After singing their first song, the children continued to share memories from their time in years three and four. In particular, their trip to Castleton…

Whilst looking at photos from years three and four, the children sang Don’t Look Back In Anger…

The photos from years five and six played in the background whilst the children shared their memories of their time in my class. Notably about the trips went on to places such as: Cartwright Hall, Huddersfield University, Eden Camp, and most notably, Fazenda – the Brazilian restaurant in Leeds. There were also photos from our trip to Whitby earlier this year.

Finally, the assembly finished with the children batting through their tears to sing Somewhere Only We Know…

During the assembly, I managed to take a few photos, and a couple of short recordings of the children…

Later that night, the children returned for their Prom! It was a great night. After tucking in to some lovely food, everyone got up and was singing and dancing away. Thank you to Mrs Coe, Miss Wassel and Mrs Pearson for organising the night! Also, a big thank you to Mrs Lupton, Miss Galtress, Miss Charles, Miss Thosebury, Mrs Cook and Mrs Malt for joining us and helping to make the night special.

Tuesday brought the final day of school. After a busy morning handing things out and eating cake, there was still time for the children to give me a headache – singing and dancing away as they had done the night before.

Thank you for being a brilliant class for the last two years. Good luck at high school and in the future. I, and everyone at St Paul’s, wish you all the best and really hope you come back and visit!

Year 5 Brazil Carnival Day 2017

Yesterday the children in Year 5 took part in a Brazil day and found out all about Brazilian carnivals. They made a flag and a mask and then tried some different fruits in the afternoon. They all made their own tropical punch from orange, pineapple and apple juice.

The sun came out too just like in Brazil 🙂

 

Here are some photos of our day.

 

What did you learn about carnivals Year 5?

Digital Leaders Celebration Event 2017

Today, the Year 5 digital leaders went to the innovation centre, in Bradford, for a celebration event. They shared a presentation about their achievements in school over the year, which can be seen below. They then received a wristband and certificate to say they had successfully completed the training to be a digital leader.

The children also had the opportunity to speak to some visitors about some new technology and games and review them. They received a free mug for this too.

Well done to all the children involved. You have acted as role models to the rest of the school and your confidence has grown immensely. I am very proud of your maturity throughout the training but especially today.

A very proud Miss Charles 🙂

 

E-Safety Coffee Morning

Thank you to the parents who came along to our coffee morning on Friday. It was very interesting to find out how to keep children and ourselves safe online.

Here are some tips given by PCSO Luke Carson.

  • Protect your child online as much as you would in real life
  • Ensure that games and gaming sites are age appropriate
  • Remember that chat rooms are used inside games and children could be talking to strangers online
  • Apps all come with age restrictions and children in primary school should not be on most of them as they are 13+ or 16+ (Facebook, Whatsapp, Twitter, Music.ly)
  • Check www.commonsensemedia.org to find out more about websites and apps
  • Protect your own family on adult accounts too by changing privacy settings, changing passwords including WiFi routers and not using public WiFi accounts
  • Check your child’s social media accounts, messages and computers randomly not scheduled or at the same time each week

Thank you again to Luke for coming in and informing us about this important subject.

If you would like more information about keeping safe online or the apps the children are using, do not hesitate to come and speak to us.

Year 5 Music Workshop Day 2

Here are the photographs of the second day of the music workshop.

Thank you to all the parents who came and enjoyed the performance. For those parents who could not attend, here are some sections of the show for you to watch.

Finally, we would like to say a HUGE thank you to Miss Boswell and Mr Nash at BBEC for running the workshop but also surprising us with the gift of keeping all the instruments 🙂

We are so grateful and we now have a range of instruments in our school such as bomwhackers, tambourines, 5 ukuleles, maracas and many more!
