NSPCC Number Day
On Friday 1st February 2019, we took part in the NSPCC Number Day. Children and staff took part in 'Dress up for Digits' and came to school wearing an item of clothing with a number on it or a onesie. To raise money for the NSPCC charity, we asked for donations and we managed to raise £95.
We hosted two maths breakfasts in school, where the children were able to enjoy some maths activities with their parents and carers. We then held a maths house competition in the hall for all classes and everyone took part in a game of 'Higher or Lower'. Finally, the children all took part in an individual maths competition in the afternoon, where they were then able to earn house points for their team.
We appreciate everyone's support with Number Day and here are some photos from the day.
The staff at St. Paul's were set the challenge to create a reading area/corner within their classroom which would encourage pupils to further develop their love for reading. They were asked to think carefully how they might encourage to boys and some reluctant readers in their class to use the reading corners. Mrs Rowley then asked the Learning Council if they would go round and judge the reading areas and pick some deserving winners.
What amazing results we got!!
Every class had a fabulous reading corner and the Learning Council had many discussions with Mr Parkinson, the Learning Council mentor, until they finally reached their decisions which were announced in our celebration assembly. All teachers and those who had helped were thanked for all their hard work and the main winners were:
EYFS/KS1 winner was Willow 1 Year 2 with their palm leaf draped area
Congratulations to Mrs Oliver and her team
KS2 winner was Chestnut 1 Year 6 with their Greatest Showman area
Congratulations to Miss Booth and her team
with a special award for the best team effort going to Sycamore 1 Year 4 with the amazing cabin complete with stove!
Congratulations to Mr Gore and his very big team who all contributed to the amazing log cabin!
Finally a massive 'THANK YOU' and well done to our Learning Council in carrying out the judging of this competition in such a democratic and thorough manner.
In September, some children from Years 5 and 6 were lucky enough to meet celebrated author Cressida Cowell. She read extracts from her new book 'The Wizards of Once: Twice Magic'. Our children then met her and she signed copies of her book and answered their questions. The children are now enjoying reading this series of books and are excited for her next release.
