Our penultimate week in Year 6 has seen the children get very creative. On Tuesday, all children at Pope Paul took part in a Design and Technology day with the same goal: to build a better world. Year 6 looked at sustainable housing and ways designers put technology into practise. With this knowledge, they built a prototype for what their vision of a sustainable home would be. There was a huge amount of excitement around this project and children threw themselves into the challenge. Many of the houses even looked at eco-friendly ways of including football pitches!

On Thursday most of Year 6 visited their new schools for the day. It was wonderful to hear how much they enjoyed it and how excited they are to attend in September.

Today we were treated to a concert by Year 5 and 6 musicians. Well done to Hebe, Eimear, Max, Tymon, Johanna and all the choir members from Year 6 for a beautiful performance.


We have a very exciting week next week! On Wednesday we have our class mass in the morning. Please arrive at OLSV at 9:30am, not at the school. This is followed by a Year 6 party in the afternoon. Please make sure summer uniform is worn for this day (no hoodies or trainers). On this day, the children are invited to have a special school lunch of pizza and ice-cream factory, billable at the normal school rate. On Thursday we have the school fun day where children will be able to wear their own clothes. On Friday we have our final morning and this is the day for signing year books and old school shirts. Children should not bring these in before this date to avoid disruption. Monday and Tuesday are normal school days but there will be no PE due to our special final session with our reading partners. Therefore, PE kit will not need to be worn at all in the final week.


Please can the children bring in a plastic carrier bag for their books etc… to go home in by Tuesday 18th July. Books will be sent home on Wednesday and Thursday.

Have a wonderful weekend!
