So, Year 6 - you have reached the end of your primary adventure. It has been fantastic and I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with you over the last 2 years. Our final term has been different and sometimes difficult and I have really missed seeing some of you as we have prepared you for high school.
I hope you hold fond memories of your time with us and you treasure those for many years. But I hope and pray that you are excited about this next chapter. Our will be offered so may new opportunities and experiences over these next few years. You will make new friends and cement old friendships, too. You will learn new skills and build on the ones you have developed at St Paul's. You will have opportunities to join exciting clubs - make the most of them!
I wish you all the luck in the world and will continue to pray for you over these next few months, that you settle quickly and rise to the challenges you face with enthusiasm and resilience. Remember, you can achieve so much - it's all about your mindset.
We are always here, if you want to pop back and see us. We would love to hear all about your new school and what you are up to.
If you have questions, or just want to say 'Hi',my email is:
Have a lovely summer and a fantastic start to high school.
Lots of love - God bless
Good afternoon, Year 6
Well, we have just finished our first morning with those of you who are back in school this week. It has been such a joy to see everyone.
We started our morning catching up and sharing our feelings regarding coming back. Everyone seemed to be really excited (including me - I've been eagerly awaiting seeing you again for many weeks now).
We are still very much missing those of you who can't come back yet. We hope you are well and keeping busy and positive-minded.
We are hoping to find a way to communicate with those of you at home, whilst we are in school...watch this space!
I don't think many of us could have imagined how long we would need to be apart in order to keep safe and keep our families safe. Hopefully, things can begin to change and a new 'normal' can start to appear.
I have continued to pray for you all and it has been lovely to hear about how some of you have been keeping busy.
If you look below, we are now placing work on here that is in line with the learning we are doing in school, so please make sure you check regularly.
God bless and stay safe
Wednesday 10th June
We looked at the character descriptions of these 5 Inside Out emotions and shared which one we most felt like this morning. It is really important to try to put into words or pictures how we are feeling so others (as well as ourselves) can begin to understand what is going on inside. It also makes us feel more connected and listened to (which must be good).
If you are at home, try to find time to chat with someone else or note down in a diary or just on a piece of paper what is going on in your thoughts.
Maths - 3D shapes
We reminded ourselves of the names of most 3D shapes. We described them using 'faces', 'edges' and 'vertices'. I have copied the pages we covered this morning, below. If you are at home, see how much you can remember. (Hint: one of the shapes is a tetrahedron and another is an octohedron. Google them to see which ones they are.)
This afternoon, Mrs Warboys and Mrs Atkinson are using the BBCBitesize unit for this week looking at Hobbies and School. They are also making an Eiffel Tower out of card - have a look online, if you are at home.
Summer 1 Week 4 Learning
Feel free to contact us, using the email address below, with any photos of work or craft that your child has created at home. You can also contact us if you have any queries regarding the activities we have set on our class page.

Good afternoon, Year 6
I hope you're all well and being helpful at home. It has been a while since I messaged. I am really missing you all and can't wait until we're back in school together. Hopefully, it won't be too far away.
I have been in school today and we have been preparing for a V.E. Day party this afternoon. I hope you are able to celebrate somehow at home. Make sure you find out why we are celebrating 75 years since the first V.E. Day. There are links in this week's homework or just 'Google'
Yesterday, I helped my boys make some face masks, just in case we are required to wear them in the next few weeks. It was fun and surprisingly relaxing! Have a look at my pictures below.
Make sure you keep up with some skills practice each day, if you can and I look forward to seeing you all soon.

Good afternoon, Year 6
Just a quick message to encourage you to read a fantastic book that has been recommended to us. It is a free download and the link is just below. Please have a look - I think you will find it really helpful. It is suitable for you to read with any younger brothers or sisters, too.
I hope you are well and keeping busy.

Things to remember all year.....
- School planners and reading books should be in school every day.
- Children need to have their own water bottle in school.
- PE kits should be in school every day.
- Toast or an apple is served each morning (£1 per week, paid on a Monday).
Homework will be set every week.
Children will be expected to complete their reading, weekly spellings and times tables activities.
This will support their progress throughout the year in literacy and numeracy.
In addition to this, children will have homework which is linked to our current Learning Challenge.
Children will be able to earn points for each activity they complete, working towards a target and earning a prize when their target is reached.
We're 'Springing' into action!
We are looking forward to another successful and enjoyable term.
Please have a look at what we will be learning this term.
St Pauls' Whole School Values
Here at St Paul's we have identified twelve Christian values that we believe sit at the heart of our school community. Each half term we have a particular focus on one of those values.
This half term, our Christian value focus is on FORGIVENESS.
Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.
In RE this term we are asking the question ' Is it better to express your religion in arts and architecture or in charity and generosity?
In Literacy, we are looking at poetry, Islamic information texts and fiction writing.
We love to read.....
Children in Year 6 enjoy Cracking Comprehension sessions where they can develop their
reading and comprehension skills.
Children will have their own reading books to take home.
We have a well resourced school library where the children are allowed to select a book.
There is also a reading corner in the classroom.
In numeracy this half term we are focusing on percentages and ratio as well as keeping up with all our Arithmetic skills.
Times Tables Rockstars
Year 6 have made a super start to Rockstars which is really helping to improve their multiplication and division skills. Have a go at home to improve your numeracy skills, have fun and try and beat the teachers!!
Our new topic is...
From Source to Sea - looking at the features of mountains and rivers in both the United Kingdom and the World.
What are the highest peaks in the UK and the World? In which continent is the longest river? How are mountains formed? How can we do our bit to encourage sustainability and help to protect the environment?
We will research many more questions.
Please see our Knowledge Organiser to see all that we are covering.
Here are some additional websites to support learning at home.....
