Year 6 – Memories powerpoint

A beautiful Leavers’ Mass, pizza party and end-of-year assembly concluded our year and indeed your time at Pope Paul. It has been a fantastic year with countless achievements and memories, for which I commend and thank you all. I wish you the best of luck as you move onto the next chapter of your lives and hope you’ll come back to visit!

Thank you, parents, for your support throughout the whole year and for your generous gifts over the past few days; it is very much appreciated.

I leave you with the slideshow of photos show at the Leavers’ Mass on Monday, full of Pope Paul memories.

Year 2 Blog Week 37

Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory. – Dr. Seuss

This week, we have been reflecting on our memories of our time together in Year 2. The children really enjoyed preparing their Act of Worship – A Moment in Time and sharing it with so many friends and family members. We came together and remembered with joy all of our achievements however big or small. We thanked all the people who have helped us on our way. We took a moment to say sorry for our mistakes. Year 2 remembered the past but also thought about the future. They leave KS1 to take their next steps into KS2. Everyone received a very special golden ticket for entry into Year 3!

The children ended the Act of Worship with a well known song – I have a dream. Enjoy the trip down memory lane!

Have a restful weekend.

Year 6 – 13/07/18

On Monday, Year 6 had CPR training with paramedic Mrs Edwards – Conrad’s mum – and learnt some very important life skills. The children were taught what to do if they find someone who has stopped breathing, then explored various equipment used by paramedics, before an engaging and inspiring Q&A session. Thank you Mrs Edwards for giving your time and for teaching us all so much.

As part of transition week, Year 6 joined forces with Year 5 on Tuesday morning to produce a collaborative art display. Come and have a look at it in the school hall and see if you can identify the animal hidden within!

Year 6’s musicians treated us to an exceptional music concert on Tuesday afternoon. There is such talent in this class and it was a joy to watch so many of you displaying the progress you have all made this year.

We had a very close rounders game on Wednesday afternoon and it was brilliant to see how much their fielding improved as the game went on.

Today, the class worked in groups to create their own Acts of Worship, and had our first one this afternoon – thank you Cassia, Enzo and Krystian for leading us in prayer.


You will hopefully now have read your reports and looked at your SATs results; I will reiterate my congratulations on how well you have all done. You are fantastic!

Please rehearse your lines for Monday’s mass and see my previous blog post to practise the hymns.

Have a great weekend and see you on Monday for your final week in Year 6.

This week, Mrs Theo and Mrs Gymer have been very busy doing home visits. The children have been enjoying the theme ‘Pirates’ inspired by the book ‘The Night Pirates’, and have had fun participating in role play, creating pirate ships, treasure chests and maps, telescopes and flags.

Have a wonderful weekend,

The Reception Team


In our penultimate week of year 5, we have been busy creating moving toys. Year 5 successfully created linear movement to make their toys bob up and down. As well as creating our toys, we evaluated them and explained why we were also getting some unwanted rotary movement. The children also considered why we were having trouble keeping our follower in line and helped to create solutions to overcome this. The reflections on their toys showed fantastic understanding of cams mechanisms- well done year 5.

On Tuesday, Year 5 collaborated with year 6 to complete a pieced of mosaic style art. The smaller square images fitted together to create a red, white and blue lion that is displayed in the hall. This time with year 6 gave the year 5 children the opportunity to ask questions about next year and find out what their last year at Pope Paul has in store. Thank you to Year 6 for their wonderful insights.

The entertainment continued this week as we watched the ‘Year 6 and friends’ performance. Year 5 were represented by Sean and Eden. Well done boys; your hard work and commitment were evident. We also watched the year 4 drummers this afternoon. Many of the year 5s were tapping away as the rhythms from last year’s learning came back to them!

On Thursday, the children visited their new classroom and teacher where they had a great time building newspaper tables. During this time, some of year 5 were asked to speak to the parents of our new reception children to explain what it is like to come to our school. They represented us wonderfully and showed how ready they are to be in year 6.


Have a great weekend.

Fantastic Year 6 SATS results

Well done to our Year 6 children who have achieved fabulous SATS results. 100% of our children achieved the national expected standard in Reading, Writing and Maths. This is a huge achievement and well above the national average of 64%. At present we are waiting for verification of the % of pupils who reached the higher levels in each subject.  Thank you to all the parents and teaching staff who supported the children. A special thanks goes to Miss Donatantonio and Mrs McNamara for their hard work and commitment.

Today all children will receive their end of year reports. We hope you enjoy reading them!

9th – 13th July

It was lovely to see so many of you at our Year 3 celebration this Thursday, where the children had so many happy memories from this year and shared their hopes for Year 4. I hope you enjoyed their homemade cakes and singing.

World cup fever led to us writing motivational speeches (as Gareth Southgate) in English and we have also looked at how we can keep healthy over the summer.

In maths we have been recapping our mental maths strategies – our mathletic champion this week is Emily.

The children have enjoyed introducing themselves to their new teachers this week – they will have another session in Y4 next week.

There isn’t any home learning this weekend.

Enjoy your weekend,

Miss Pringle

Blog week 35

The children have enjoyed a range of activities this week such as writing acrostic seaside poems and enjoying sports games with Year 2. Enjoy the photos.
