Sports Week 2021
Easter Garden Competition 2021
What a tremendous response this year with our Easter Garden competition. The theme was to produce an Easter Garden with an eco-link demonstrating an understanding of the Easter Story from the bible. Many children used natural resources such as moss, leaves, flowers and stones and some even grew plants such as cress seed to represent grass. Every child who took part received an easter egg. The Chair of Governors elected winning entries across the different phases in school. They provided special prizes with more chocolaty runners up prizes too.
It has been lovely how many of our pupils clearly demonstrated their knowledge and importance of Jesus' death and the legacy left behind . That is, to continue His message: to love one another and to have everlasting hope and strength to bring and share peace with one another.
Romans 12:18 If possible so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all.
Colossians 3:14 And above all these put on love, which binds together in perfect harmony
Corinthians 1:4-7 Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful;it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
The children in Year 3 have recently read a book called Owen and the Soldier. The story features a statue of a soldier which has fallen into disrepair. Owen decides to write a poem to save the soldier. The Year 3 children decided to write their own poems about the soldier and Miss. Woolley sent them to the Royton Branch of The Royal British Legion. Brian Douglas, the chairman of the Royton Branch wrote a lovely letter back to the children and was inspired to write his own poem too! He also shared the poems with other members and one of them also wrote to Year 3.
Please enjoy the poems written by the children and read the letters and poem from Brian and Edd.
Supervised care at St Paul's
Please see some of the exciting activities the children are doing when they are being cared by us during the period of isolation and many children having to stay at home.

A Big Thank you to the staff this week for helping this project to be realised.
Please walk by our school to see the pictures drawn by some of our younger children of their parents who are key workers.
Here are some of the activities we have been doing in school during our first week of supervised care. We had lovely sunny weather. We had an outdoor classroom where we painted, created with clay, prepared wooden pallets in readiness for constructing more raised growing beds. Children have used tools, learned the skills of DT and have kept physically healthy with Joe Wicks (spot Mrs Henderson taking part too). There's a glimpse of us doing our home learning at school too.
