Jesus said, "I have come in order that you may have life - life in all its fullness."
MESSAGE TO THE YEAR 6 LEAVERS
It was so lovely to celebrate you all in our assembly on Tuesday. You can now watch the videos in the Videos section of this Children tab. Spread the words to your friends and classmates. Also don't forget you can have copies of both videos if you drop off a USB stick at the school office.
We will miss you all and wish you all the best as you move on to high school. Don't forget to come and visit us!
Miss Harrington, Mr Moran, Mrs Bouchier and all the staff of St Paul's C of E Primary
This term, we have lots of exciting activities planned. We are reading the fantastic Stormbreaker by Anthony Horowitz, which will lead into out writing activities. We are also continuing with our topic on the Ancient Egyptians as well as preparing for our transition to high school. Time to work hard and have fun along the way!
Let's get going!
Our focus for this half term is LEARNING THROUGH STORIES. Have a look on our Values tab to see how we have been exploring how that looks in our school and how we can live it out in our lives, as Jesus taught us to.

Homework in the Summer term
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 love to read.....
Children will have their own reading books to take home. We look forward to seeing your progress on our Reading Rocks chart.
Children in Year 6 enjoy Cracking Comprehension sessions where you can develop your reading and comprehension skills.
We will be reading a class book - This term, we are reading a fiction novel linked to our Topic on WWII!
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.
Our class reading book is the fabulous Kensuke's Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo. It tells the story of a boy named Michael, whose family decide to sail around the world after his parents are made redundant from the local brickworks.
