Dear Parents/Carers

 

Welcome to the May Newsletter. It has been another busy month here at St Paul’s.

  

KS2 and KS1 SATS

Well done to all of our Year 6 pupils for such a successful SATs week. The children were calm, confident and well prepared and all gave the tests their very best shot. This is all we could ask and were proud of their determination. 

Y2 have worked hard over the last few weeks on their SATs and should be very proud of their efforts too.

Y1 will be tested on their phonics in mid-June.

These are all Statutory Government tests and our school prioritises the children taking tests

during this period so that they have the very best opportunity and support to shine. We also know the tests are only one part of your child’s school experience and whatever the results of these test there will also be many other success and achievements to celebrate for each child.

 

YEAR 6 TRIP TO TWYCROSS ZOO

 

Year 6 enjoyed a well earned trip to Twycross zoo as a lovely end to a week where they all worked so hard in the SATS. Their favourites were chimpanzees and meerkats.

 

YEAR 1 CLASS ASSEMBLY

 

We learnt all bot Pirates n the Year 1 Class Assembly and had an insight into their exciting topic.

 

YEAR 4 MYTHICAL CREATURES DAY

 

A mythical creature came to visit Year 4 and wreaked havoc in the classroom….. Who was it and what was it doing? The children dressed up for the day and have great fun investigating our visitor.

 

YEAR 1 TRIP TO BEACON HILL

 

As part of Year 1’s Wildlife topic, they visited Beacon Hill to look at the wildlife there. Trips like these are part of our mission to provide memories and our pupils of special times at school.

 

YEAR 5 TRIP TO NATIONAL JUSTICE MUSEUM

 

Year 5 had a day learning about law and order and the value of justice and how systems have changed over time.

 

4+ LION LEARNERS DAY

 

As part of their Noah’s Ark topic, 4+ had a lovely day with Lion Learners. They held snakes, cockroaches and even a tarantula and learnt all about them. They also petted more traditional animals and learnt about their care.

 

YEAR 6 DARE SESSIONS

 

Year 6 have been fortunate enough to start their Drug Resistance Education Programme delivered by the Leicestershire Police. Valuable life skills taught at early age has lasting impact. The sessions will continue into June.

 

SUN SAFETY

 

Hopefully we will see more sunshiny days this half term!

Please provide your child with a sunhat during hot weather. The school sun hats and baseball caps can be purchased from the office.

 

We would also refer you to the reminder Sun Protection letter that was recently sent out to all parents.

 

WATER IN SCHOOL

We actively encourage your child to drink water throughout each school day but particularly during warmer weather. Please ensure that your child has a plastic, leak-proof water bottle labelled clearly with their name. This should be brought to school by the children each day filled with fresh water and taken home each evening for rinsing.

4+         The Seaside

Y1         Through the Keyhole
