We have had a very busy final fortnight in Year 6. Well done for all the hard work over the entire term. On Wednesday, as part of Past Pupil Week, we welcomed Mrs O’Keeffe to the class and asked her questions about her time at Pope Paul as a pupil. Everyone enjoyed hearing about the differences between then and now, and were particularly envious that there were no SATs back then! After the holidays, the children will be writing up the interview.
Some of Year 6 also had the pleasure of holding a focus group with two ex-teachers from the school, who brought with them some fascinating Pope Paul memorabilia.
Year 6 enjoyed the road safety talk (which made us all think more carefully about how we cross the road) and the chance to sit in a Sainsbury’s lorry.
To make the most of the good weather, the class completed an Easter maths hunt in the peace garden, which put their fraction/decimal/percentage knowledge to the test.
The children practised their blending skills in art by making Easter cards.
Once again, the Geology Club has been pulling out all the stops with their lunchtime session with the Year 3s. The time and effort they put into preparing these sessions is highly commendable.
Geology Club isn’t the only lunchtime science club that has been going on. Joseph and Matthew A have also been busy preparing a more physics-based series of sessions for the Year 4s. This week, they taught them how to create a glider, thinking about the aerodynamics of it. Keep it up boys!
I have updated spag.com with new tests for you to practise on.
Please get a good rest after such a busy term. I wish you and your families a very happy and holy Easter.
