World Mental Health Day 10.10.2018

Today is World Mental Health Day. Across the country and world people are talking about mental health and how important it is to talk. Mental health is about our feelings, our thinking, our emotions and our moods.

At St.Paul’s this year we are going to be talking a lot about mental health and keeping our children’s minds healthy.

In Year 6 we watched some videos about how we can reach out and talk about our feelings before they take over and what feelings are normal and those which are overwhelming.

If you are worried about your friends or you feel down or upset please talk to your teachers or staff in school;we can help 🙂

What is your advice Year 6?

Year 6 Whitby Trip

On Friday, Year 6 went to Whitby as part of our topic work. We looked at the Abbey, walked down (and up) the 199 steps, went in the old town, on the pier and play on the beach. The children also had time to look in the shops and buy gifts and sweets. We had a fantastic day although the weather was miserable and wet. The children were a credit to the school and enjoyed it very much.

What was your favourite part?

Ramadan and Eid

 

In Year 4 we have been learning about Ramadan and Eid this week.

We would like to say a big WELL DONE to the children who taught us all about it in class and in assembly and THANK YOU for bringing in some of their personal belongings and food to make it more real for us.

We wish all our Muslims friends a Happy Eid.

Eid Mubarak!

Year 6 Science – Light

Year 6 have been learning all about light this week. We have been experimenting with light rays (yellow string) we have learnt about light travelling in straight lines and into our eyes. We found out how our eyes use the light to make images from our brain too and how clever they are.

We then started to understand shadows and what shadows are formed from the light rays. We also studied reflection and refraction.

What facts did you learn from these investigations?

What do you now know about light, shadows and the human eye?

Year 6 Premier Sports Taster Session

Today the children took part in a taster session run by Premier Sports. They really enjoyed playing and learning new skills. They tried out archery and a target game.

They counted their points and used their maths skills too.

Year 6 Compliments

Whilst on the trip the children received complimentary feedback from staff at the museum, regarding their polite manner and interest in the exhibition.

Today, a local resident came into school to explain how impressed she was with the behaviour of the children on the bus home from the museum. She said that even though they had clearly had a fantastic day on the trip, they were pleasantly chatting away and even giving up their seats to people who needed them.

Well done to all the children involved.

Year 6 Imax and Science and Media Museum

Yesterday, Year 6 went on a trip to the Science and Media Museum in Bradford. We took part in 2 workshops, watched a science film on the Imax and looked around the exhibitions. We learnt lots of new facts about photography and cameras. We also had the chance to experiment with lights and cameras as well as taking part in science experiments. 

In the Imax cinema we watched a film called ‘Mysteries of the unseen world‘. It showed how cameras can capture things that are too small, too fast or too slow for the eye to see. It was fantastic. Here is a clip.

Here are the rest of our photos.

Well done to all the children who represented St.Paul’s brilliantly and received a compliment from someone at the museum for their excellent behaviour.

Year 6 Science 19.1.2018

Today, Year 6 have been investigating circuits and the symbols used to show a circuit.They created simple circuits and also included a motor. They worked in groups brilliantly and everyone was able to light up their bulb and spin the motor.

Can you remember why we use symbols in our circuit diagrams?

What did you learn about circuits?

Year 4 Invertebrate Hunt

Our Science topic being Living things and their habitats, we learnt to group vertebrates and invertebrates using classification keys, Venn and Caroll diagrams. We then went on an invertebrate hunt behind the church before examining our findings in the classroom and drawing these tiny creatures in detail. Here are some photos of our very successful hunt.

Well done, Year 4!
