Manchester Airport

Last week, year five visited Manchester Airport to enhance our topic of flight! Everyone had a great day as we were shown around by two fantastic hosts – Neil and Elaine. There are some photos from our day below. I will be choosing our best recount of the trip and posting it on the blog within the next few days!

Kick-boxing

As part of our Future Learning Partnership, four children from year two had a go at some kick-boxing today. They went up to BBEC and did lots of different warm up activities, learnt lots of different kicks, and then put some of the moves that they had learnt into combinations. Here are some pictures from the afternoon:

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!
