Week 10: 15th November

This week was Anti-bullying week and the main focus this year is ‘Change starts with us.’

Here at Pope Paul we are proud to support Anti-Bullying Week and the children participated in a range of activities  to raise awareness. They also took part in a workshop ‘This is Me’ and learnt about how unique they are and how it is important to accept people as they are.

In Maths, the children have continued with introducing equal sum as a strategy using bead strings as an aid.

In RE the children examined the Liturgical Year Calendar and revisited their understanding of Advent.


On Tuesday, we had our class mass on the theme of The Eucharist. The children read, sang and prepared well.  As each child played a part in the mass, the mass was a special time for all and we thank you, the parents and carers, and thank the parishioners who came as well.  Having parents and carers/friends present made the mass even more special for us.

The children had a focus on remembrance on Monday in class and made a lovely remembrance focus in class before attending the whole school 2 minute silence reflection at 11am.

This morning straight after assembly, the children walked to Oakmere Library for a wonderful performance of Charles Dickens’ ‘A Christmas Carol’ presented by Philip for Booster Cushion Theatre.  They were captivated from the start and came away full of inspiration about this story. A number of the children were chosen to take part in the show and the ‘humbugs’ and ‘gold coins’ that were given to them went down a treat!  We hope that you heard lots about it too when the children got home.
