St Paul’s Nativity and Carol Concert 2018

On Thursday, Reception performed a traditional nativity play for their family and friends in St Paul’s church. Each year group also sang a Christmas carol during the service.

A big THANK YOU to everybody who helped and also family and friends who came to watch.

We hope you all enjoyed watching it as much as the children enjoyed performing it!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

From all the staff and students at St Paul’s 🙂

Spreading Christmas Kindness in Reception!

This week the ‘Christmas kindness elf’ has been visiting Reception each day with lots of fun surprises. On Tuesday, he gave us equipment to make Christmas cards for our family and friends and on Wednesday he left us some white clay to make baubles for our Christmas trees.

Unfortunately, we didn’t see him on Thursday but after lunch today we received a surprise….

 

A Christmas Surprise for Reception!

Today, Miss Wassell brought a mystery package to Reception class … it was present from Santa! He had given us a magic elf door to place near a wall to create some elf magic, inside it read:

Boys and girls you must always remember, to be good all year especially in December

For when you see the magic door appear, the Christmas Kindness Elf is sure to be near

Checking your behaviour the whole week through, remember he will see everything you do!

So if you are good, polite and share, be nice to others, behave well and play fair

On Christmas Eve with my sleigh full of toys, I will deliver presents to all good girls and boys!

Love Santa X

When we arrived back from our weekly mile, something magical had happened! The elf had appeared through the magical door with a note and some presents that read:

Good morning Reception! Santa told me you are having Christmas dinner today with your friends – how exciting! Would you like to make a crown for your lunchtime fun? Love the Kindness Elf XX

The children got straight to work creating their crowns to wear at lunchtime! We have had so much fun – what will the Kindness Elf bring tomorrow?

Remembrance Day Year 6 & Reception

Last week, Year 6 and Reception class worked together to produce a fantastic Remembrance Day display to celebrate 100 years since the end of WW1.

The children in both classes worked together to produce lots of poppies using paint, tissue paper, crayons and felt tips. We then joined them altogether on the silhouette of a soldier.

Year 2 also kindly contributed their poppies in the shape of 100.

Well done to everyone involved. I am so proud of this amazing tribute.

Reception’s First School Trip!

 

Reception dive UNDER THE SEA!

On Wednesday 11th of July, Reception class visited the Sealife Centre in Manchester as part of their Under The Sea topic.

The children explored the centre and saw lots of wonderful sea creatures including: turtles, sharks, clown fish, crabs, jellyfish, seahorses and even a sneaky octopus. The children also got to touch a coral snake and starfish in the rockpool. Reception were so sensible even other members of the public commented on how well behaved the children at St Paul’s were.

Have a look at our video to see how much fun we had on our school trip …. but watch out for the SHARK!

 

Penalty Shoot Out – Reception & Year 1

On Tuesday, the children had the chance to take part in a sponsored penalty shoot out against a very special guest … BILLY BANTAM!

Reception and Year 1 had lots of fun meeting the Bradford City Football club helpers and Billy Bantam himself. They cheered on their friends to try and score as many goals as possible. A big THANK YOU to Bradford City for a great morning!

Sports Day – Part 2

As it was a little warm on Sports Day, Reception and Year 1 only took part in the egg and spoon race and running race in the morning. After we had an ice pop to cool down, Mrs Kilmartin and Miss Galtress took the children into the shade in the afternoon to have a go at their very own sack race. The children loved being active for a whole day and can’t wait for next year.

Reception race winners:

1st – Rhys T

2nd – Harley D

3rd – Lacey-Mai B

People Who Help Us!

To introduce our new topic Reception Class have had lots of visitors recently. We have been very lucky to meet lots of people who help in our community, for lots of different reasons. We have had chance to talk to these visitors and ask them lots of questions about their jobs. Some of our visitors even brought us different equipment that we could look at and try on. It was very kind and it helped us learn lots of information about people who help us.

Our visitors included: a firefighter, a police officer, a lollipop person, an army officer and a charity worker from the Salvation Army.

Reception sing-a-long!

We have been learning a few songs as part of our mini-beast topic that we would like to showcase for you.

We hope you enjoy watching as much as we all enjoy singing!
