Reception visitors … part 1!

We are very lucky to have lots of different people who us help in our community. To introduce our new topic ‘People Who Help Us’ a special visitor is coming to see Reception class each week.

Last week, Lynn and John came to see us to talk about the Army! We got the chance to ask lots of questions about their jobs and how they help different people. Lynn and John brought us different equipment and uniform that we could look at and try on. They also brought some survival packs for us to taste. They even set up a mini assault course for us in our outdoor area. It was a very fun and interesting afternoon and it helped us learn lots of information about the Army.

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.

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?

This Week At St Pauls

In school this week it has been another ordinary but great week.Also, another week counting down to year 6’s SAT s. A couple of amazing trips have also featured this week.

In year 4, they have been on a residential to Kings Wood, which started on Wednesday. I’m sure they all had a good time for we are writing about this on Friday.

In year 6(our class) we have carried on our topic about letters and have started to look at pie charts.

Another trip this week was for year 5. They went to Huddersfield University to see what being at university is like

.Also, year 5  researched  World War 2.

Reception carried on doing growth work when they looked at gardening in spring and snow and, may have carried on doing Jonah Whale.

In year 3, they’ve carried on with rugby- done plant experiments and parallel lines.

Not only year 6’s SAT s are coming up, but year 2’s SAT s also are coming up. Both year 6 and 2 have worked hard and now SAT s are only a couple of days away. We hope they end in success!

In year 2, they’ve doing fractions in maths. Furthermore, they’ve been looking at habitats, reports, recounts and all-sports.

Finally, in year 1, continuing with the magic porridge pot, have written the story in their own words. In addition, in maths, they have looked at the value of coins and notes and have been making fairy-tale puppets.

To conclude this, it has been a good week and we hope you agree. We would appreciate it if you could take a minute to comment on whats happening in the week on our blog.

It has been another mind-blowing,amazing week.

Thank you for reading this.

Almost all week, year 5 have been taking part in a bikeability week to see how safe they were on their bikes. They did this every morning and did very well.

Year 4 have been learning about Romans and how they lived and in maths they have learnt about perimeter and area of 2d shapes. Finally in PE Year 4 have been practising rugby skills with Bradford Bulls.

In year 3, they looked at the Anglo Saxons and how they lived and dealt with the Vikings.

Year 2 researched about animals and did some practise tests.

Year 1 have looked at fairy tale characters, talking for writing, retelling the magic porridge pot story with puppets and have compared castles and houses today.

Reception have continued doing some growth work with bean plants by putting cotton wool and paper towels around it then they finally planted their plants outside.

In conclusion, we had a great week and everyone has worked hard and done work to be proud of.
